One’s a stage blazer, the other a vocal bible. Yet, Ciara and Brandy‘s paths met in the middle yesterday on the set of hit BET show The Game. All smiles, the ladies shared the shot above on their respective Twitter accounts.
Set to debut in March, the sixth season of the cable hit sees B-Rocka reprise her main-cast role of Chardonnay, while it is believed that Ciara is making a cameo.
In both cases, the show is a good look. More than ever before, the music industry requires an artist penetrate many arenas for longevity. Hence, it’s great to see both ladies doing just that – together.

Let’s face it…
The turn of the century has unfortunately been accompanied by an under-appreciation of true vocalists. Veritably, it has been clear to see that as production technology has increased its ability, inversely, quality vocal performances have decreased.
Turn on the radio today and you will be assaulted by an abundance of autotune, so much so one may question if he/she is listening to real people or The Transformers…
