Watch: Brandy Reflects on 2012, Dishes On ‘New Years Rockin Eve’ Performance

Screen shot 2012 12 20 at 9.47.09 PM Watch:  Brandy Reflects on 2012, Dishes On New Years Rockin Eve Performance

2012 has certainly been a year of triumphs for ‘Two Eleven’ maestra Brandy.  Aside from seeing her first top 10 single on Billboard charts in nearly 10 years (‘Put It Down’ ft. Chris Brown), the songstress has also won rave reviews from her many show-stopping performances from January on.

Now, the ‘Talk About Our Love’ singer is taking to ABC to talk about ringing in the new year on the ‘New Year’s Rockin Eve’ concert – joining a lineup that features Fergie, Taylor Swift, and more.

See her dish on her year-in-review, album, and upcoming performance below:

        brandy’s sold 30 million record worldwide, has 3 Top 3 billboard 200 albums, got signed when she was just 14 and has been able to stay in work for nearly 20 years. Nicki just sucked on Lil Wayne and bleached her skin then tada the waitress turns into a rich overrated clown!

        Your mad cause Billboard ranked Brandy in the Top Pop Artists of the 1990s and in the Top 50 R&B and Hip Hop Artists list of the past 25 years! These charts are more important as they involve people who have actually stood the test of time. Let’s see if they remember Nicki next decade.

    She should reflect on a lot. #1 is releasing a video 5 years after the song came out. Reflect so she can make improvements and comeback stronger.

    People are soooo quick to hate. Yes the numbers were not the best but I believe she did a pretty good job with promo, with the first single choice, WD is vocally a good song and overall the album was critically acclaimed. And ppl, there are very few ppl out there not “flopping” by your standards. According to yall Nicki, Beyonce, Rihanna, and Brandy are all flopping but at the end of the day they are all getting paid and have more money and investments than all of us. Sooooo I wouldnt call that a flop…If u getting money doing what u love…i call that winning!! End of story!!

    Now…Brandy please don’t perform Wildest Dreams. It is dead in the water with no hope of resuscitation. Let’s just move on babe.

    Please perform Put It Down or a medley of Put It Down/Do You Know (since hopefully that will be the next single). Please and thank you!

    Man y’all are some pathetic haters. Y’all only like an artist if they “slay the charts” regardless of talent. Brandy is one of R&Bs most cherished gems! Her voice, her harmonies, her girlish charm, her signature sound….there have been many imitators, but she cannot be duplicated. Some of your favorite artists LOVE Brandy. Just ask Rihanna, Chris Brown (he often imitates her runs), JoJo, Beyonce, Solange, Dawn Richard, India arie, Jessie J, Jazmine Sullivan etc. Two Eleven may not be a platinum seller, but she has proved that she is here to stay! Let’s see where your favorite artists are in 20 years…HATERS!!!!
