Brandy Announces ‘Put It Down’ Premiere Date

Published: Wednesday 8th Aug 2012 by Sam

Good things come to those who wait.

And “wait” Brandy fans have for the hotly anticipated video for her comeback single ‘Put It Down’.

After serving up a titillating teaser, the Vocal Bible has finally announced when the masses can expect the Hype Williams helmed visual.

The Lipton awaits after the jump…

Writing on her official Tumblr tonight, the 32 year old confirmed that the Chris Brown assisted clip will receive its world premiere next Tuesday (August 14th) on BET’s 106 & Park – which she’ll be co-hosting on that day. Its VEVO debut will follow moments after, while Entertainment Tonight‘s ‘The Insider’ will air an exclusive behind the scenes look at the video later that night.

********

Granted the clip  was due at least 3 months ago, it’s awesome to see things coming together so amazingly now. Having done “this” for the last five years, we’ve seen many projects come and go, with the key component to those that are successful being the all-important “setup”. Hence, with the song finally taking off (in a big way) on Urban radio, what better time than the present to roll out its video for maximum impact? What’s more, it’s clear -judging by the “attack all bases” activation for the visual – that  Ms. Norwood’s team are not playing. At all.

Needless to say, we can’t wait to see B-Rocka ‘Put It Down’ in a major way next Tuesday. In the meanwhile, we’ll hit (re)play on that teaser one more time…

    Is she still alive or does she ever lived?

    • Suicide Blonde August 8, 2012

      In the pic she reminds me of Aaliyah’s “Rock The Boat” music video.

      • truth August 9, 2012

      • i’m not throwing shade, but… August 9, 2012

        I’m with you. I know the exact scene on the boat, the same earrings and Aaliyah had chains.

    • LDC August 9, 2012

      Man shut up. You’re so worthless around here. And from what I can tell, no one really likes you. Why don’t you just go away.

      • kythaman2u August 9, 2012

        Suicide Blonde is an eternal dumbass whose whole purpose for coming here is to try and be the ant at the picnic. A latchkey kid who never got enough attention from mommy and daddy. Just roll your eyes at its attention-seeking stupidity.

    • arfa August 9, 2012

      her eyes look dead in that video and she looks awkward while dancing/drunk walk whatever you wanna call it.

      • gaia August 9, 2012

        She do look funny’ like something is off with her.Good luck Brandy 🙂

      • DS August 9, 2012

        The vocal bible title came from the Full moon Album, Alot of artists took inspiration from that album including chris brown, tyrese, keisha cole, omarion etc. her ad-libs and harmonies are her signatuture sound. A famous band called Red hot chilli pepper said one of their album was inspired by her multi-track harmonies and imitated the sound with guitars. I agree that she is not a whitney but she is very versatile with it..

      • kwame August 9, 2012

        SWEETY CALM DOWN CUZ BRANDY SEEMS TO HAVE GOT YOUR KNICKERS IN THE TWIST. RELAX BEFORE YOU DIE FROM HEART ATTACK!!

      • Stephen August 9, 2012

        Whitney may have been the greatest vocalist that ever lived, but she wasn’t the only one. Acts like Mariah, Luther, Toni, R Kelly, Brandy, etc qualify to be called vocal bibles

        YES ITS VOCAL BIBLE YA MAD???LOL

  4. keep it 100% August 8, 2012

    Im not even being rude BUT people, I think i speak for most people when I say im passed caring. How can your song come out before keyshia cole and still not have a video out. Brandy you clearly need better management. And if your management is going to handle an album like they did this single I can only wonder how well it will do. Keyshia cole dropped a snippet, 2 days later whole song, then a fortnight later a full video. Thats how its done. I like brandy but this promo this terrible esp for an average song.

    • DES August 8, 2012

      But where is keyshia’s song on radio? or the charts? Bran and her team know what they are doing, and u and everyone else who claims they dont care anymore will still be watching!

      • Tasha August 8, 2012

        @Des but Keyshia song is better! I bet Brandy push her back in October too!

      • keep it 100% August 8, 2012

        I think the promo for this has been terrible. single have a very short life span. if they was going to take this long, they should have waited before relasing the single. Im from the Uk so i can’t comment on wheter keyshia cole song is on radio, but i know on billboard keyshia cole song is doing better and probz will stay doing better

      • Quan August 8, 2012

        I so agree. Yes while many were excited for Brandy the time is quickly passing. And lets be clear Keyshia Cole song has only been on the chart for 4 weeks and is already #14. Brandy song has been out 9 weeks and is #30. Keyshia always has the support of the urban market! And its not that we don’t want Brandy to do well. She just needs to have a better marketing strategy, thats all!

      • Back2Business August 8, 2012

        @Des Keyshia Cole song is at #14 on the R&B Charts and Brandy song is #30…

    • kwame August 9, 2012

      B**** KEYHSIA WHO???? SUCK MY JUICY D***!!

      • Tasha August 9, 2012

        @KWAME How can they suck it when it’s hidden in that belly!

  5. ENOUGH ONIKA August 8, 2012

    • kwame August 9, 2012

      OVER YOURSELF DARLYN. UP YOUR AZZZ!!

  6. quetta August 8, 2012

    Chris Brown is sooo sexyy…

    • Honestly Speaking August 8, 2012

      Your tacky ass would find a woman beater attractive. Gurl, it is not looking good for you in the morals department between that p**** popping, thieving h** that you stan for and the fact that you find Fist Brown attractive.

      #GetSomeHelp

      • Quan August 8, 2012

        I think Chris Brown is so s*** too…….. #deal

      • James227 August 8, 2012

        B**** seems like Rihanna still thinks Chris is s*** or she would not be chasing him all over the place. Also I really don’t believe he beat her ass. This was something they quickly used to boost her career and they used Chris to do it. Rihanna KNOWS Chris did not beat her.

      • Mobwife August 8, 2012

        B****, if she liked a “woman beater”, then she would like: FEminem, Charlie Sheen, Mel Gibson, Sylvester Stallone, Sean Penn, Rodney Atkins, Alan Jackson, Christian Slater, Tom Sizemore, Tommy Lee, Jayz and “yo daddy”! Now, STFU!

        Rihanna hit Chris and he hit her back. I’m cool with that. Keep your paws to yourself regardless of gender.

    • Mobwife August 8, 2012

      IKR? I think they both look adorable in this video! I can’t wait to see it.

      Go Breezy….Go Bran-Bran 🙂

      —-> F*CK YOU HATERS! <—–

    • kwame August 9, 2012

      YES HE IS AND IT LOOKS LIIKE SOME SO MANY PEOPLE GOT A PROBLEM WIH THAT.LOL

  7. Honestly Speaking August 8, 2012

    Next Tuesday…the song has been out since April and her fans still aren’t getting a music video to this overplayed and delayed song until NEXT WEEK? Over it. Next.

    #DONE

    • Mobwife August 8, 2012

      Trick, you didn’t like it to begin with so stop lying & GTFOH.

    • kwame August 9, 2012

      HAVE YOU BEEN PAYING ATTENTION??? DROP DEAD!!

  8. Mr Bradshaw August 8, 2012

    I Totally agree with the comment above from keep it 100%

    I’m a huge brandy fan. Have all her albums. I really want her to win so I need them to get her promo together. She was on twitter talking about how so much is out of her control. I’m like brandy you are a star! Why are you not in more control of your brand and your product? I immediately thought of how much I respect Beyonce even more for how hands on she is with every part of her career and brand. Even If something doesn’t work at least she not blaming other people. brandy needs to wake up. This is a new day. She has to fight for this.

    The song isn’t making me play it on repeat but I do like it and I hope the video is on point after all this teasing and waiting.

    I still don’t care for Fist Brown on the track tho. *shrugs*

    • kwame August 9, 2012

      YOU SOUND LIKE A REAL STARZ SO NO WORRIES CUZ EVERYTHING HAPPENS FOR A REASON. JUS TKEEP SUPPORTING AND I’M SURE SHE’LL COME SWINGING FOR THOSE LESSER. STARZPOWER 🙂

  9. Honesty August 8, 2012

    Summer is over. You made a mistake. That song could have been a summer banger. The only summer banger this year is….. Exactly. You had the opportunity but you didn’t take it. You can’t even say that beyonce or Rihanna were taking up airtime.

    • kwame August 9, 2012

      NO WORRIES CUZ THE SUMMER IS STILL HERE WITH US AND WE ARE GONNA MAKE IT HAPPEN. 🙂

  10. haha August 8, 2012

    YASS FOR THE MOESHA BRIADS!!!

    • kwame August 9, 2012

      THE BRAIDS IS GIVING ME EVERYTHING AND I THINK SHE SHOULD BE DOING IT MORE. DAMN BRANDY LOOK LIKE 16YRS WITH BRAIDS ON. 🙂

  11. arfa August 8, 2012

    OK crashBRANDYcoot drop this s*** already!!

    • kwame August 9, 2012

      ONLY NEXT WEEK AND ALL WILL BE OVER 🙂

  12. teen brandy fan August 8, 2012

    I hate how people say that the video is too late. First of all the song is high on the charts. It increases every week. It just jumped !) Spots without the video. So the video isnt late. It would only be late if the song started decreasing in popularity. Which it hasnt. Dont say you are done with her until you see the finished project of “Two Eleven”.

    • kwame August 9, 2012

      YOU DON’T HAVE TO EXPLAIN YOURSELF TO THESE IDIOT CUZ THEY HAVE NO CLUE TO THE REAL LIFE WHATSOEVER. 🙂

  13. Girrrl August 8, 2012

    I agree with the comments! This has taken way too long and it’s not a good look for Brandy to act like she’s all “helpless.” Girl get it together! Have a meeting with your team and set “un-changeable” dates for your next song, video and album. I have a strong feeling that when this song doesn’t skyrocket on the charts her album is going to get pushed back to 2013.

    • kwame August 9, 2012

      IF YOU CARE SO MUCH THEN PLEASE FOLLOW HER AND GIVE IT TO HER CUZ BRANDY DOES LISTEN VERY WELL TO ALL THE POSITIVE AND CONCERNED COMMENT FROM ALL HER FANS. 🙂

  14. ISTAN$4BRAN August 8, 2012

    Seriously. I’ve watched the teaser 30-40 times. Tuesday roll on!

    • kwame August 9, 2012

      I HOPE YOU’RE READY FOR THIS CUZ ITS GONNA BE EPIC.. 🙂 🙂 🙂

  15. monstarebel August 8, 2012

    And she still making y’all wait!! lmao she better hope this video was worth the wait!! Seriously like how long does it take to drop a video when ur song been out since April

    • kwame August 9, 2012

      IT WASN’T ENTIRELY HER FAULT DAMB A**. CHRIS WAS BUSY DOING HIS PROMO ROUNDS AND THE LABEL SO WHAT YOUR BEEF???? SWEETY SIT!!!!!!!!

    • kwame August 9, 2012

  17. Pop Royalty ( F*** Yo Fav) August 8, 2012

    she has no one to blame but herself and her lazy team if this single bombed and flopped.

    • kwame August 9, 2012

      WHY HER THOUGH????

  18. FAF August 8, 2012

    I love her, but it would make more sense if the song hadn’t been fully released yet. It’s not like it’s EPIC #justsayin.. LOL anyway, hopefully her album does well & she looks so youthful 🙂

    • kwame August 9, 2012

      IT WIILL DO VERY WELL SO KEEP SUPPORTING IF YOU’RE A REAL STARZ. 🙂

  19. monstarebel August 8, 2012

    Ummmm Keyshia Cole’s song is actually being played on the radio a lot

    • STORM LATTIMORE August 8, 2012

      tell her to step outside of her box…. heard it all before…sounds the same!

      • Quan August 8, 2012

        Keyshia did step outside her box and when she did that her fans were not feeling it. So what did she do? Stick to the formula that has brought her the previous success she enjoyed. Now because Brandy step outside her box everyone suppose to follow suit. No! One thing is Brandy never had the support of hard core R&B and thats because her whole career majority of its been pop crossover. Tell her to reach the masses. She has the ability. No one is convinced that Brandy is putting anything down. The song does not fit her character. So while yes we are happy she did an “ok” urban record the hood still not convinced. She not that s*** to be trying to put something down. Leave that for the girls who actually look good doing (Insert ___________) #Done

      • JER August 8, 2012

        A Brandy stan telling someone to step out of the box. I can’t.

      • kwame August 9, 2012

      • Quan August 8, 2012

        Chile from the crayola snippet she just provided with them Patra braids…..yeah we are going to watch once. I doubt she will do anything spectacular for me to be on youtube or to even run to Itunes. I’ll wait for another single or album. I enjoyed all of Brandy albums but these singles do not be cutting it! She has so much potential to bad there is not a market for her!

  23. Jaiyah August 8, 2012

    If some of y’all are fans of Brandy and follows her on twitter, then you would know that she posted a comment to her stars saying to please be patient everything is coming ASAP. She posted that yesterday and I believe everything is coming soon. Hello she’s co-hosting 106&park on BET. Y’all also have to remember that business deals are involved so things could be placed out there properly. For example I love No Doubt, they came out with the video did like 2 or 3 promos and now silence. Right now the Olympics is going and folks are into that right now. So artists do have to think about stuff like that when they are promoting their music.

    • kwame August 9, 2012

      ITS CALLED BRANDWAGON JUMPERS. THEY ARE SO CLUEELESS THAT THEY EVEN FORGETS TO BRUSH THEIR IN THE MORNING OR NIGHT>>>>>>>>>>>>>>YIKES!!!!

  25. tlmusik90 August 8, 2012

    And I’m not making excuses for Brandy but perhaps people should stop blaming the artist and threatening to stop supporting the artist, when the artist isn’t always the one in total control of what plans are being made. She’s a new artist on RCA so she just can’t go in there calling all the shots. You want change, tweet that frustration and impatience to RCA.

    I actually think that the timing is perfect. Extremely similar to the way Kelly Rowland’s team handled “Motivation” and Nicki’s people did “Starships”

    You have to slowly introduce the song into the masses because although many of us have heard the song, many people are just now turning on their radios and hearing it for the first time. The image of the video is out there now and the video dropping next week is right on time for it to stick a little more than it already has…

    WHITNEY IS THE ONLY THING CLOSE TO A VOCAL BIBLE

    NOBODY MODELS THEMSELVES AFTER BRANDYS DEEP ASS BARITONE SINGING…

    THAT GRAPE JUICE IS PAID FOR THESE DELERIOUS COMMENTS

    • JB August 9, 2012

      I agree. Calling Brandy the “vocal bible” is a joke and a half. She is no Aretha, Whitney, Patti or Celine-type singer. She’s only slightly above average and half the time her voice is too mumbly, strained and hoarse. I don’t see why anyone would want to pattern their singing after hers.

      • DS August 9, 2012

        The vocal bible title came from the Full moon Album, Alot of artists took inspiration from that album including chris brown, tyrese, keisha cole, omarion etc. her ad-libs and harmonies are her signatuture sound.

    I don’t bother reading the comments above as they tend to be so negative that it makes me think something’s wrong with them as they can’t express themselves like an adult.

    @sam knows good music & knows when a projects worth celebrating and Brandy deserves this project- Brans kept you talking and you WILL watch the video. T-RAHH

    the timing is perfect cause it just started burning the radio. Its actually 23 on rnb not 30, nextweek its going top 20. Its gonna be a big hit, just like motivation was!!! And yes brandy is a vocal bible, she can do many things with her voice more than many artists..her voice is multi dimensional….

    • bitchpleaseeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee August 9, 2012

      NOBODY CAN STOP US WHETHER DAY IIKE IT OR NOT SO THEY BETTER STAY PRESSED OR JUMP OFF A CLIFF AND SEE IF BRANDY AND HER STARZ WILL CARE.LOL
