brandy behind Watch: Brandy   Behind the Music (Full)

It’s finally here!

Fans of ‘Never Say Never’ hitmaker Brandy can finally see her story on VH1’s award-winning documentary ‘Behind the Music’.  Outlining the young singer’s nearly two decade long career, the telling episode details Norwood’s rise to fame and all the challenges met along the way.

Guesting her brother Ray J, Rodney Jerkins, and more, B-Rocka leaves no stone unturned and speaks on everything from the fateful crash to her ‘spiritual union’ and the loss of Whitney Houston.

It’s all inside in its entirety below…

    I’m not the biggest Brandy fan, but I really believe Brandy has been redeemed as of late, as long as she dont come for Kelly Rowland’s throat on that role as Whitney Houston biopic. LOL, just kidding, but i can see how being americas sweetheart was hard to live up to, honestly, i can see how it was hard for britneys spears too, who was also called that, so I wish we wouldnt peg that on anyone, except for Beyonce, who to me has really done everything correct as far as image is concerned, rightfully so!

    This was a great episode! I was VERY emotional for Brandy but overall I’m just so happy for her. I’m so glad that we were able to get Brandy’s side of the story and that she can finally put these things behind her. Behind the Music was a perfect platform for this.

    I just LOVE Brandy ever so much. She’s been through so many struggles in her life, both personal and professional. Her will, drive, and determination to keep pushing through is truly an inspiring testament of true Human strength. I will ALWAYS be down for Brandy, forever always. And nothing will EVER change that. I’m so excited for the new single and album.

    You Brandy stans need to have all the seats ASAP. She had 7 hits and hasn’t had one since 2002. She’s not an icon, she’s not a legend. Quit trying to act like people are checking for Brandy. Her and Ashanti need to get together and go on tour or something. I’m so over you cocky Brandy stans GTFO

    The problem is that the fools think that an icon is due to the amount of record sales and column inches you fill. An icon is the impact you make, be it with one hit, many or the fact that you change an environment. Look at the beginning of the programme and see how much she achieved…. and this is all without the internet, twitter, and gimmicks. She achieved and made more of an impact than most.
    The programme was good. I liked the honesty… Wendy Williams face and voice spoiled it. It’s funny that when she talks about her team, wasn’t her team her mum? Her boyfriend looks like a fatter Lloyd

    @Jer Wow… tell us how you really feel…It must suck to be so bitter, and for what reason? How does that hateration benefit people like you? I just don’t understand… IMO, an icon isn’t defined solely by their success or by hit records. What is a hit anyways? True music icons in my opinion have the respect of their peers. Their talent is recognized by those who’ve come before them, and they have influence with artists that have come after them. To me, Brandy has all of those things. If she keeps at it, I believe she can potentially become a future legend in music.

    No one’s checking for Brandy you say? Really? But yet you found your way here commenting on a Brandy post of all places. So clearly she’s relevant enough for you to make that post. During her Behind The Music episode, Brandy topics were trending on Twitter both domestically and internationally. In fact, 4 out of her 5 studio albums re-entered the itunes Top 100 R&B/Soul Chart after her Behind The Music episode aired. So clearly people are still thinking about her, people still remember her, people are still rooting for her to WIN.

    Deny all you want, you can’t keep avoiding the truth.

    Hm… Well, I love Brandy as a vocal artist. I think she has one of the most distinctive voices in contemporary music, and her intonation, musical inventiveness, and emotional depth is of high standard.

    But I find it troubling that on occasion she diminishes the value of her own work if it doesn’t sell well. In the video, she and several other people seemed to put down Afrodisiac, even though by production, vocal, and content standards, it’s probably one of Brandy’s best albums and one of the great R&B albums of the last decade. I also distinctly recall her brushing aside Human when it sold poorly, even though that album, too, I found emotionally rich and really well sung.

    I also find it strange–and this applies to nearly all celebrities, not just Brandy–how willing she is to put the most private details of her personal life out there for public view. Obviously her having a new boyfriend is a good thing, but to declare that she’ll give up on love if things don’t work out with him–if he doesn’t “act right”–just seems to be placing huge pressure on their relationship and her.

    I will always really admire Brandy as a musical artist, but in terms of her personality, I don’t know how much faith I have in how she views herself.

    I Loove Braandy!!!!
    Issues i think affect Brandy the most
    She has Low Self confidence. This means that, she succumbs to pressure she recieves from the society, media and public in general. I will take for example the Human era. That album was one of the best albums to be released in 2008. it was just a solid CD, that touched different facets of love. Upon it not selling well, she started to criticise the album and Rodney, which i think it was all due to pressure. But honestly that album was good, people are still jamming Piano man, Right here(Love the Video), True, Long Distance, Comoflage, Human, Fall. Brandy has given us quality music from the first day she got hold of a mic. Human failed because of POOR PROMOTION and SINGLE CHOICES, not because of poor quality of music. The production was from out of this world e.g piano man. even the Critics gave her 69-72
    Love you bran its only that i know how lack of confidence affects an individual and it pains me that it is you and you are in this cruel industry

THE 90’S MUSIC IS THE BEST AND THOSE SINGERS ARE LEGENDS NOW . BRANDY CAN SING BETTER THAN BOTH BEYONCE AND RIHANNA BUT WITH ALL THESE HATERS OUT HERE HER CAREER WENT DOWNHILL BECAUSE SHES NOT SELLING s** LIKE THE OTHERS. RIHANNA IS A POP SINGER NOT R&B .BEYONCE CROSSED OVER TO POP AND FAILED SHE STILL CANNOT OUT SING BRANDY EVEN THOUGH SHE GOT MORE GRAMMYS. BRANDY IS THE ONE WHO DESERVES 16 GRAMMYS BECAUSE SHE ‘S NOT A COPYCAT AND SHE SINGS HER HEART OUT WITH SOUL.

THE BOY IS MINE ALONE WILL MAKE BRANDY A LEGEND>> ITS THE MOST SUCCESSFUL FEMALE DUET OF ALL TIME>>> THE MOST SUCCSSFUL SINGLE BY A TEENAGE ARTISTS OF ALL TIME>> THE MOST SUCCESSFUL TEENAGE DUO OF ALL TIME<<>>>>>ON TOP OF THAT BRANDY HAS INSPIRED MANY ARTITS SUCH AS KANYE WEST, CHRIS BROWN, TANK, SHE AND MARY J BLIGE ARE KEYSHIA COLE’S MAIN INSPIRATION ..JOHN LEGEND, TYRESE, CIARA, JAZMINE SULLIVAN AND KELLY ROWLAND.. ON TOP OF THAT SHE INSPIRED RIHANNA’S BEST SELLING ALBUM GOOD GIRL GONE BAD ”. SHE INSPIRED THE RED HOT CHILLI PEPPERS AND WAS THE MAIN INSPIRATION OF THEIR GRAMMY WINNING ALBUM AND ALBUM OF THE YEAR NOMINATED ALBUM NAMED STADIUM ARCADE… BRANDY IS A SINGER’S SINGER POINT BLANK PERIOD.. SO SHE IS DEFINATELY A LEGEND ALONG WITH MONICA WHOM WAS THE LAST FEMALE TO HAVE THREE CONSECUTIVE NUMBER ONE SINGLES FOR OVER TEN YEARS KATY PERRY HAD TO PASS HER IN ORDER TO ACHIEVE THAT AND SHE HAD THE HELP OF DIGITAL SINGLES WHICH MONICA DID NOT HAVE IN THEIR DAY… THEREFORE BRANDY IS A LEGEND POINT BLANK PERIOD..

    …i rather her be under confident in herself and her music than overly confident of crap music. That’s what makes legends great. You should never be completely satisfy with your work. Should always strive for better. Granted there is a thin line between greatness and insanity, but sometimes u have to b hard on yourself to make yourself greater.

    @ Still standing – Thank you for your stats, now I don’t have to leave an essay (even though I could add on to what was mentioned for days). She’s broken so many barriers and accomplished more than what some people can only dream of. The multi -platinum albums, record-breaking TV specials, the dolls, movies, advertisements(Cover girl, etc). Let’s not…

    Bradny’s Behind The Music episode was very touching, honest and displayed an act of bravey on Brandy’s part. It’s not easy for someone so sensitive to put themselves in such a vulnerable position and divulge all of their skeletons for all the world to witness/ judge. Brandy is human and she makes mistakes, but she owns up to them. She has a very big heart. I don’t know her personally, but I can tell that she has good intentions.

    Brandy is insecure, but that’s apart of her charm. It brings out the best in her. I hope when its all said and done she’s proud of every moment in her career. She’s never dropped the ball music wise. Brandy’s a beast, end of…

    …& for the record people, Beyonce has plenty of soul. Stop using this as an opportunity to put her down. Beyonce is just as accomplished as Brandy. You can’t give props to Ashanti, Kelly Rowland, Keri Hilson, etc and reduce Bey down to nothing. #MakesNosense … Anyway, I’m proud of both ladies (B’roka & Bey). They’re phenomenal women.

    Am I alone in feeling like there was no complete clarification on the accident? and I really wanted to know about that note that Whitney passed to Bran the morning of her death.

    I LOVE HER, I really do an I’m quietly excited about her new work, but her new inner voice? this “fearless & bold” image is giving me Dawn Richard. In fact their similarities are quite frightening, she should really think about working with Dawn and Drew on a creative level.

Can’t wait!! And… I’m glad that she didn’t bash the “Human” album and blame the producer for it not being as “successful” as she expected it to be. It was an AMAZING album. She’s definitely exuding great amounts of confidence and it’s great to see that she’s survived every challenge life has thrown at her. Awesome documentary. =)
