Brandy: The Original Triple Threat

BRANDY THAT GRAPE JUICE Brandy: The Original Triple Threat

For many, she was the sassy teen gracing many a 90s screen in ‘Moesha‘- the series which catapulted her to fame.

For others who look beyond her role in the hit series, she is one of Pop culture’s most influential acts, enjoying a career long and prolific enough to inspire acts she now considers her contemporaries.

So now, in celebration of her career thus far and the launch of her new studio album ‘Two / Eleven”, That Grape Juice presents “Brandy: The Original Triple Threat,” showcasing some of our favorite ‘moments’ from her career by way of the clips below…

    Respect to Brandy. And I´ve always said at least she has an unique voice
    But really… isn´t “The original triple threat” and “she is one of Pop culture’s most influential acts” a little bit too much??? Where is she that? Sam is so biased Writing those two sentences but always finding ways to downplay people like Madonna or Mariah Carey at the same time is simply ridiculous

    Still, kudos to Brandy. I hope she has some success with this new album. And yeah all of you need to watch Whitney the Voice on that clip with brandy slaying with her vocals despite being way out of her prime already

      How is it little too much? She is one of the original triple threats as far as acts out today. She has influenced artists in the pop genre, rock genre, gospel genre. People from J Moss, Karmin, Tank, Rihanna, call her the best and talk about her inspiration. Do your research. Brandy is one of the most influential r&b acts of ALL time. Unfortunately, most people won’t get it until after she’s dead and gone. I noticed that a lot of people in music are afraid to praise other artist and admit their influences. Brandy is definitely up there and anyone that truly knows music knows this.

      Brandy is a triple threat and influential act in her own right. Just because Sam might be biased in his articles and such doesnt mean you should take away what it is that Brandy is, which is an influential urban/pop icon. There are different standards of iconic influence and they dont all rest on people who are over 40. Age is literally nothing but a number. Just because she didnt grow up in the realms of Whitney, Mariah, Aretha, Diana, etc. doesnt mean shes not an icon in her own right. In her heyday, no other black teenage female artist had a successful movie, television AND music career at the same time (in essence, she was a young Whitney Houston). Girls looked up to her, she had #1s and millions of albums sold off the board, a long lasting starring role in a popular successful sitcom that helped define a generation, and an undeniable gifted unique voice. Hell, she even had a barbie doll made in her likeness! The first black female artist to do so successfully, and only as a teenager! So yea, she may not be “selling” or do what she did maybe 15 years ago now, but she has still made her mark in the industry and shouldnt be discredited for it.

She even is still selling and making hits on the charts while most 90’s acts are coming out and can’t even.get their first or second single on the chart.

    Some people love to call ‘flop’ to certain artists…

    but in Brandys case, she is just coming back, and curiously this is what she has in store:

    – A new album (music)
    – A returning role on The Game (tv series)
    – A role in Tyler Perrys next film (Cinema)

    Exactly what she used to do back in the 90’s. And the exciting thing is that this is just the beggining. She has just returned, we dont have any idea of all the things she will be doing in upcoming months and next year.

    So stop the hate, and enjoy her new journey, she is talented an has returned to stay.

    Brandy IS the original triple threat. She’s had her own sitcom, starred in movies, sold millions of records and for Gods sake she had her own BARBIE DOLL. Will she ever see that level of success again? Hmmm probably not, but I honestly believe that 2/11 will NOT disappoint sales or material wise. Everyone has their time, and most of your favs only have a few years left in them. They WISH that they accomplished HALF of the stuff that Brandy has. =)

    I LOVE Brandy, and her influence cannot be denied. Nearly, 20 years in the game and we are still talking about her. Let us talk about her influence-
    1. Voice- One of the most distinctive voices in music, with unmatched tones, runs, textures to her voice. A husky smokey instrument a la Anita Bakjer/Toni Braxton. When you hear Brandy, you know it’s her and she is a testament to loud singing not being equated great singing.

    2. This woman sold a tremendous amount of units. Her songs are staples in the R&B world, from “I wanna be down” to “Almost Doesn’t Count” to “Full Moon.” She put Rodney Jerkins on the map.

    3. Not since Whitney’s emergence had a black girl really been “America’s Sweetheart.” Embraced by both pop and R&B audiences, Brandy redefined what it meant to be a pop superstar as a black girl. Countless magazine covers (17, YM, etc) that scarcely featured black girls, a Covergirl Endorcement, a television show, movies, a black barbie doll, all inspired by a black girl with braids. A signature style that had girls being “brandy” for halloween.

    4. Movie with Diana Ross? Check! First black princess with her idol Whitney Houston? Check… Being called a diva before the age of 21 and gracing the stage with the likes of Tina Turner, Cher and her idol Whitney Houston.. check.. A successful and critically accalaimed television show that ran for 6 years.

    5. Worldwide acclaim and acknowledgement of her talent by her peers and artists such as Quincy Jones, Whitney Houston, Rihanna, Chris Brown, Melanie Fiona, Jojo, Monica, Tyrese, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Clive Davis, etc.

    6. Get ready for Two Eleven people- This is about to be her Emancipation of Mimi moment. You can never count out true talent. Give me an artist with a long career that hasn’t had a few valleys between their peeks. Brandy is about to shine.. nuff said….

    She had so many more defining songs/videos in her career….this post doesn’t quite sum it up for me.

    How is she the “original” triple threat? There were many entertainers who had successful music and acting careers before Brandy was even born. I like Brandy, but her hardcore stans have always had this very annoying habit of over exaggerating her success.

    Brandy can sing, but she’s never been a powerhouse vocalist like Whitney and Celine. She sold a lot of albums, but she never went diamond or had one of the all time best sellers, like Britney or Usher. She won awards, but never had any record wins.

    In her prime, Brandy was a strong “B”-lister — but there was always someone more successful than her. And not to be shady, but if Brandy was the beast some of you claim she was, then she wouldn’t have ran into such a dry spell so early on (starting with Full Moon, her albums started to sell dramatically less than the one before it, and that was only her 3rd album.) Now it’s almost as if she’s starting over, trying to rejuvenate the interest she had over a decade ago. She’s waiting for THAT big comeback album that erases the stain from her decade of sales disappointments and returns her to mainstream prominence; she’s waiting for her “Mimi” album…and while I hope 2/11 is successful, I’m definitely not holding my breath that it’ll be the one that sets everything right. “It All Belongs to Me” was a flop and “Put It Down” hasn’t even cracked the top 10 on the R&B charts yet; if nothing else, Brandy should be able to score a #1 song in her own genre, yet even there she’s being met with some resistance.

    I didn’t like having to write all that, because like I said, I DO like Brandy…but I refuse to be delusional and color the truth. Yes, in her heyday Brandy was exceptionally popular for a black teenage female artist, but she never owned the world. She was Adele, not even at her peak. Like what happens to a lot of child stars, as soon as she grew up, the world began to move on from her.

        Honey don’t take it too seriously. The Brandy stans come out in droves every time she releases a new album. Every new album is gonna be her big comeback. Every new single is gonna slay. Every performance is truly an innovation lol. Now apparently she’s gonna have an Emancipation of Mimi sized moment. And apparently she’s the first artist to do film, dance a little, and whisper thru songs. Oh and she’s also the vocal Bible.

      CS9 Thank you. I didn’t want to comment cause I would have to leave too much out. I am a brandy fan and unlike some people I have all her albums, I support her but I am not delusional. Not at all. You summarize all what I wanted to say. Good luck to her though still waitning on the new album.
      I support talent and refuse to support these pop trashes that can barely hold a note and created by their record lable with no input into their craft.

      nb 99.9% of people commenting on TGJ have no opinions of their own. They just recycle what people say on other blogs. Thay have not lived half of the music industry. They are ignorant. They don’t buy s***, have no knowlege of vocals and what a talent is. TGJ is beginnign to be a s*** hole

    I love me some Brandy, however “Original Triple Threat” must’ve been a ploy to get more hits on this site cuz WE ALL KNOW that ISN’T the TRUTH. Triple Threat, sure she can sing, act and dance, but she was not the first…if you want to break it down and just say female and break it down even more and say black female…even if you said black female pop star. The title does not fit, you must acquit!

    But as I said, I love me some Brandy and I think she’s super talented, but that title is ALL KINDS OF WRONG.

    I have never seen another african american female teen/or adult artist achieve what Brandy has since she’s done it.

    Brandy definitely made history.

    I have realized that of all different types of insurance, medical insurance is the most dubious because of the clash between the insurance policy company’s
    obligation to remain afloat and the consumer’s need to have
    insurance policy. Insurance companies’ profits
    on wellness plans are extremely low, so some businesses struggle
    to profit. Thanks for the tips you discuss through
    this website.
