Sean Garrett: “Brandy’s New Single Is Very Commercial”

Published: Monday 28th Nov 2011 by David

 

Without a doubt, Brandy‘s upcoming album is one her most anticipated releases to date.

With creative credits from the likes of Chris Brown and Frank Ocean, to name just a few, expectations- to say the least- are high.

So in a bid to heighten the  buzz that surrounds it ,  today the project’s leading contributor Sean Garrett share details regarding the LP and its long awaited lead single.

 

His comments below…

 

 

Speaking exclusively to RU, he explained:


The first single is hot.  I think it’ll be more fair for her to reveal the collaborator we’re putting on it. It’s definitely something you have never heard—you probably haven’t heard Brandy over a track like this.

It’s very commercial, but at the same time,it’s got a dope hip-hop influence, it’s club, it’s radio, it’s all formats. It’s coming really soon. I’d probably say before Christmas.

Going onto add:

Trying to do what everybody else is doing is out the door. We just went in there and just got down to the music.

I really love and enjoy working with Brandy and we’re still working, but the work we’ve already been able to accomplish has been incredibly fun and fresh. She’s just having fun and letting her hair down.

Though we can’t wait to hear just what Team Norwood has been cooking up, we are also hoping that this ‘commercial’ lead single is more trend setting than fashion following.

For unlike Mariah Carey,Brandy’s voice is just as in tact as it was back in the 90s and so therefore  is deserving of a material  that not only showcases this but also serves to force her into higher chart ground.

Think you’ve got the ideas to turn the album into a sonic success, get involved in our A&R task here.

Your thoughts?

    Brnady gotta bring this now or am dieing of waiting that long.lol I do trust she is doing her best to give us a very classic album though which is why she don’t wanna rush it. I believe she will do well as expected by an artist like Brandy.

  12. mr Norwood himself November 28, 2011

    spell check (kelly ) and even a track that is showing a lil diva brandy letting this new b****** how it’s done

  13. BRockahstan4eva November 28, 2011

  14. bitchplease November 28, 2011

    she is my xfactor and so looking forward to see what she planning to dish out for us. she rap sing, dance, act, produce oh need i say more????????? b****** please move to the side.

  15. xfactor November 28, 2011

    This woman is my amazing xfactor cuz I just can go without listening to a Brandy music. People follow and buy real music against all these gimmicks on the radio now a days. Brnady is bring some different sound with of course the real music to go with it and I for one is icthing to get my hands on them like right this minute. We love you Brandy.

  16. Johnny November 28, 2011

    she cant never score a hit. you’re a 90s baby. forget it. next!

  17. Brandy will change the game again! November 28, 2011

    Mark my words! This beautiful flower of a woman is about to bloom into song like people have never heard her before!

  18. Bookem November 28, 2011

    @trillafood i understand where @ADC143 is coming from. They just said it wrong. She needs to stick to urban pop music/ r&b. Because that dance euro pop stuff doesn’t work with her voice and who she is as a person. Maybe I’m wrong she might get that one catchy dance song like usher. But i don’t like dance that much unless they constantly play it on the radio and make me like it lol. She doesn’t dance anymore NEwayz sooo plus i like to hear her runs and acrobatic voice on those slow jams.

  19. Bran Star November 28, 2011

    The single…is coming…I need to make room….

  20. NO POINT AT ALL November 28, 2011

    Brandy is old. I loved her in the 90s. Im going to support her again now, but yall are riduculous- she was no vocal bible like Whitney or Mariah. Her career is no different of a mess of falls like Christina Aguelera, and like Britney, she will do alright- but not as well as she used to. mark my words

  21. commanderofthedancefloor November 28, 2011

    @MARK GINNIS,

    alex da kid is the one who made massive attack not sean garret.

  22. MoniSOChill November 28, 2011

    Yes, I am so excited. I am ready to get my album collection back up…I hope that it’s worth the wait and I hope she scratched that Brand-Nu character.

  23. vocalbible November 28, 2011

    My vocal bible is about to give me live as always and just cannot wait. 🙂

  24. josh November 28, 2011

    As much as I lovr brandy I’ve given up on her…and to the second poster’s comment, you made me spit out my pepsi…too much lolz

  25. brandy is my icon November 28, 2011

    @monisochill, she isn’t gonna include brand-nu as she want this album to be core of her root and not her ulta-ego but we might hear something from brand-nu and niki minaj soon. 🙂

  26. TRASHTALK November 28, 2011

    @JOHNNY, FAUDBITCH STFU AND DROP DEAD CUZ YOU’RE SOUNDING JUST AS IMMATURE AS A DELUSIONAL P****.

    ANYWAY TO THE MAIN TOPIC BRANDY IS COMING AND DOING WHAT SHE DOES BEST AS USUAL SO ALL YOU HATING A** N****** JUMP OFF A CLIFF CUZ WE DON’T GAF!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  27. BRanDY FAN FROM UK November 28, 2011

    Good new but I hope this Sean Garrett had done his research very well though cuz we want no hype but huge surprice thats all. Brandy your fan around the world is wating impatiently for your arrival so keep it up, my babes.

  28. beyonce November 28, 2011

    I hear lots of good news about this Brnady new project and looking forward to it as well. It seems she’s been working very hard for this and will do her best work yet.

  29. Robier November 28, 2011

    Garrett STFU and let the song speak for itself

  30. rihanna certified navy November 28, 2011

  31. BIELIBER November 28, 2011

    @Robier I know right. I just wished he doesn’t hype it so much as that jinx the effort of the work. See what happneded to #RTW. Just drop the song and let the audience do the talking cuz at the end of the day we know what we want and will buy it.
    ps! uge concerned fan of Brandy 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂

  32. truthis November 28, 2011

    yeah yeah sean garrett really lives off his own hype…he hyped up nicki minaj massive attack and that was just mediocre, i bet this the same way!! brandy will do ok but she wont take over like inthe 90’s..people just not checking for her like that outside of her fanbase i guess

  33. BRANDYALLDAWAY November 28, 2011

    Very Thankful that we get a single sometime soon, People need to remember the USTREAM:

    These 2 have great chemisty, and Theres no way hes gonna deliver b******* for her, Hes been influenced by her and respects that voice. The thing I like THE MOST about Sean, is when he said she ‘let her hair down’ which only means we gettin a brandy that NOT holding BACK

  34. turveydel November 28, 2011

    why u shading on Mariah like that !!!!

  35. DRB November 28, 2011

    Commercial to have a hit isn’t a good thing for me. That’s you being desperate and playing chase.

THAT BEING SAID BRANDY HAS DONE IT BEFORE SO NOTHING WILL EVER STOP HER FROM DOING IT AGAIN.

  41. JG November 28, 2011

  42. HURRY UP BRANDY!!! LETSSSSS GOOOOOO November 28, 2011

    She hasn’t had an album since 2008. HURRY UP BRANDY. And all these bandwagon ‘Starz’ better buy her album, while yall begging her for a follow or mention on Twitter. #TEAMBRANDY, Been down since ’94!!!!!!!

  43. JER November 28, 2011

    Don’t try to shade Mariah Carey. That b**** has hustled and put music out consistantly for 22 years. Brandy aint done s*** and nobody is checking for her. Everytime Brandy tries to drop something it’s always said to be “hott hott!” and it’s always a dud. I bet Monica stans are lovin it

  44. V November 28, 2011

    Im addicted to Brandy!!!! I NEED this new music! Stop telling us how hot it is and just release it! PLZZZZZZZZZZZZ! Lol im dying here!

  45. teambrandy November 28, 2011

    Sean just say no more and surprise us for a change. but is commercial the right route for someone as talented as brandy?? somebody tell me something cuz I’m confused!

  46. BITCHPLEASE November 28, 2011

    @jer B**** PLEASE HAVE SEVERAL SEATS CUZ YOU’RE BORING ME!!!!!!

  47. 4everNSN November 28, 2011

    You guys the Album is not going to be released till late January or early February. But I can tell you #starz we are in for a treat… A real treat B-Rocka has come for the throne and for your faves lace front.. But it is up to us to help her promote her new singles…. Yes her new single. We are not gonna treat this album like “Human” even though I thought Human was a great album and it deserved more then what it got. We are going in on this album Brandy is working hard so should her fans… It has been almost 13 years since we’ve had a world tour (Never Say Never World Tour 98). C’mon lets put the real queen back on the map.

  48. Andrew November 28, 2011

    Brandy is my most immense artist to me ever to record and sing, she is my everything when she sings I feel complete, I love that grapes love for Bran to.

  49. 4everNSN November 28, 2011

    @Jer they were not throwing shade if you were reading it correctly they were just stating that Manriah Linebacker Carry just does not have the same voice she did when she first came out, unlike Brandy she still has that voice… Now you need to have several seats, because Brandy shits on Flopica all day long when it comes to sales, concerts that Brandy pays for, and hits all of Brandy albums are double Platinum except human which has just received gold certification… And you trying to throw shade at Brandy but yet you on this sight under her name….. B**** please go suck a d*** like you use to doing.

  50. real talent November 28, 2011

    @teambrandy i think commercial will do brandy some justice if there’s any of that left in the music industry but then again Brandy hasn’t gone cemmercial for a while so i think she got it in the bag.
    brandy please just drop this damn song already.lol

  51. Renye November 28, 2011

    So glad to see my gril Brandy back on the scene bout to shut it down for R&B this woman music is timeless & im sure the new single will be also.. Leggoo Bran!!!

  52. c*** November 28, 2011

    who?

  53. shady1 November 28, 2011

    @4EverNSN–All of Brandys albums are not double platinum–her first two albums hit, then Full Moon barely went Gold, Afrodisiac hasnt been certified yet, The Best of Brandy isnt certified yet and hasnt even sold over 100k and Human also has yet to be certified–quit trying to make lil’ Brandy harder than she is b/c all of Monicas album have sold over 500k with no qualms. Brandy was just a teen idol who had her moment but is now passe, Monica has always kept it real and hood never tried to go “Becky”, never faked a marriage to maintain a squeaky clean image–she has always kept it hood. The only way Brandy is known nowadays is as Ray J’s sister…#honest.com

  54. mark ginnis November 28, 2011

    @commanderofthedancefloor
    actually he coprodced and co wrote massive attack.

  55. shady1 November 28, 2011

    And That grape juice can chill with the shade b/c Mariah’s voice may not be exactly perfect like it was in the ’90s but you try and sing your ass off for 20 years+ and she if your vocals dont deteriorate. Brandy has never had Mariah or Whitney pipes so of course her little vocals are intact she didnt do much with them to begin with, I know lots of little hood chicks that can do that little hum hum that Brandy does so knock it off. Mariah should have never been brought up b/c Brandy isnt even close vocally to Mariah and until she sells 180 million records and has 18 #1s y’all know where y’all can leave the comparisons……#haters.

  56. JP November 28, 2011

    SHADY1, please shut up and sit all the way down. Thank you.

  57. shady1 November 28, 2011

    @JP–I see one of Brandy’s gay 10 fans are stanning lol

  58. shady1 November 28, 2011

    @JP–Please tell your girl Brandy on Twitter that she is expired and a joke and that she needs to sit all the way down. Stop wasting the publics time, the record labels time (cuz they keep dropping her…what is the 4th label?) and the producers time no one is buying the Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer sounding vocals.

  59. kwame November 28, 2011

    @shady1 like really you’re gonna use Brandy’s faults against her for the rest of her life??? We news flash it called being HUMAN!! Yes you do make mistakes and learn from it which each and everyone of us do for the rest of our lives like me for one. You don’t have to like Brandy but there isn’t any need for all this childish act and chucking your toys out of the pram and all that.
    Listen up silly child, Brandy will forever be in the industry doing her thing so deal with it and betterstill concentrate on you delusional as well as pathetic little life cuz obviously thats all you got left otherwise you wouldn’t waste your entire time behind computer hating on someone that has the foggiest clue whether you existed.
    get real and get a life, trashy B****!!!!!!!!!!!

  60. b**** please November 28, 2011

    @SHADY1 B**** PLEASE HAVE SEVERAL SEATS WITH A HEAPED BOWL OF ICECREAM CUZ YOU ARE MUDDAFUCKING NON-FACTOR WHICH DESERVE NON OF MY TIME AND ENERGY.
    B**** PLEASE!

  61. BRANDY FAN FROM BRAZIL November 28, 2011

    Is this cazy b**** for real???? please get a job cuz brandy has plenty of them, you know somewhere we go from 9-5???
    smh

  62. JP November 28, 2011

    SHADY1, you’re a clever clever girl. Let me guess? One of the ten Brandy haters that didn’t finish high school? Well, aren’t you precious.

  63. shady1 November 28, 2011

    @JP–actually I have a Bachelor’s in Advertising I graduated last year…get it together, get the d*** out your ass and move on. Brandy is finished she may continue to her thing but she will never be popular again…Urban audiences always liked Monica more and Pop audiences are over Brandy so she is officially in the Toni Braxton lane…and y’all wack stans will deal.

  64. Bran Star November 28, 2011

    @Shay1 PLEASE, shut the f*** all the way up and keep it cute, light, and mute before speaking on the vocal bible that is Brandy! All these weak ass pig muffin muncin hufflepuff mariah ass stans need to STFU and go somewhere, no one mentioned her ass or shaded her, so I don’t seem why the deranged lambs are upset. Like I said, shut that s*** up.

    You f****** haters better be getting your life, y’all say Brandy ain’t relevant, she ain’t s***, she ain’t done this or that, but your asses sure pressed her and stamped on those keys to make a response because you’re PRESSED and checking for Brandy. So what does that mean? She’s still relevant. Sit your asses down.

    You f****** haters need to keep it f****** lite on Brandy and stop overemphasizing the downfalls of Brandy. (Esp. you shady1bitch)

    All but ONE of Brandy’s albums are RIAA certified. Full Moon is PLATINUM not Gold, Afrodisiac is GOLD not uncertified, Human is the only uncertified Brandy album with it being a bit over 200,000. (And dead at the so-called haters even knowing about The Best of Brandy CD lmaooo idiots!)

    Stay mad and pressed and fonting hard on those keyboards losers, because you all know that deep down you are earnerstly checking for Bran. And you know for a FACT that she’s still poses a threat to your fave’s career. Get ready because in 2012 wig will be snatched, so you better have that super glue handy.

  65. BRockinurworld November 28, 2011

    Oh please Brandy shits on Mariahs vocals ANY day of the week nowadays. Mariah cant even belt anymore whereas Brandy is still hitting those f7s like nobodys business

  66. shady1 November 28, 2011

    @Brockinurworld–Lmao!!! at you thinking she can sing better than Mariah, you definately need to have a seat–Mariah would shut that ET looking b**** down on her worst vocal day. I just hope that Brandy is putting as much time into her comeback as she is her daughter’s obesity b/c juvenile obesity is not cute…#realtalk

  67. Bran Star November 28, 2011

    @Shady1

    Your so utterly pathetic, it’s sickening! And how f****** DARE you bring MANica into this, she’s already SLAYED her career and she’s about to do it once again!
    STAY MAD.

  68. shady1 November 28, 2011

    @Bran Star–Monica is still tearing up the R&B charts and remains relevant something ur girl hasnt done in about 10 years besides faking marriages and killing innocent older women who have children and grandchildren—thats why her brother is more famous than she is #pathetic.com…..besides I dont think murderers should get comebacks so I’m not condoning this.

  69. Tristan November 28, 2011

    Saying I’m excited would be an understatement. Brandy’s voice truly is one-of-a-kind and I’m sure with this ‘commercial’ sounding single there is a bit of edge to it almost reminiscent to her ‘Full Moon’ era. Roll April 2012!

  70. Bran Star November 28, 2011

    That’s right, you better pound those keys, dig up articles, and do research on Brandy! SLAVE! Brandy has your mind, and you can’t deal! 😆 :kii:

  71. Realtalk1 November 28, 2011

    Its getting too hot in here…jeez y’all calm down Brandy was never on Whitney or Mariah vocals or sales so no one is even really checking for her. The only way she will do well is if real hardcore Brandy fans still exist and go out and buy her stuff but as far as her being as big as the Never Say Never days you can forget it…people just never bought into her teen idol status seguing into adulthood the way the bought Monica’s. But you stans are being ridiculous like she was on legendary or icon Whitney or Mariah status cut it out Brandy was never that big outside of the black community so chill….and Shady 1 we all know Brandy hit an old lady rushing to make that wack album Human, we dont need to keep rehashing it everyone makes mistakes.

  72. Bran Star November 28, 2011

    @RealTalk1 Excuse me, no one in here was saying that Brandy was on Whitney/Mariah level, what are you talking about? You guys need to open your eyes and READ. This is a BRANDY post. So non-fans, don’t worry about Bran. You just be ready to get that album when it comes out, and buy the single. Brandy will be A-ok, she is going back to her roots and she’s giving her fans what they want. She has a solid fanbase. She sold 70K on her last album with less-than-desireable promo…She’s on a new label, a new team, and she’s working with new people so there’s no need to worry!

    As far as her new era goes, this is by far the best pre-era promo she’s had since Never Say Never IMO…I mean, things are setting up nicely once again. Back then, Brandy was tackling multiple forms of media, TV, Fims/Movies, and music. What’s she got going for herself now??

    She’s got a string of acting/TV roles before the single/album is even out. Let’s recap, shall we??

    Multiple episode arc on Lifetime’s “Drop Dead Diva” which was re-newed
    Multiple episode appearances on the CW’s “90210”
    A producer for The Hub’s “Majors & Minors”
    “On My Own” docu-series is still up in the air.
    She will be appearing on the new season of BET’s “The Game”
    She got her FIRST FILM ROLE in over a DECADE in Tyler Perry’s new film “The Marriage Counselor”.

    ALL of this and the single/album hasn’t even been released yet…Much better promo than for Human, so I have faith that this is the beginning of a GREAT era for Brandy. 2012 will be a gret year for her.

  73. Realtalk1 November 28, 2011

    @Bran Star—I understand geez wasnt trying to ruffle feathers people were just getting a little too hyped about Brandy who my God hasnt had a true hit in almost a decade. I am happy for Brandy that she has that “if at first you dont succeed” attitude but I think she should just focus on the tv/film part of her career b/c musically things arent that hot for her that “Silent Night” sounded good if this was 2002. Nevertheless I wish Brandy the best going forward!!!

  74. Bran Star November 28, 2011

    @RealTalk1

    Didn’t mean to offend you either, but people are on edge, and the unruly need to be checked…I don’t know if you understand the magnitude of how most Brandy fans feel…We haven’t had a Brandy album in 3 YEARS….THREE YEARS…we are STARVING for new music from her…She went a long time being a free-agent without being on a label, now she has a new home…She’s been through hell and back, and she’s still right here pushing for her fans, pushing to give us music, because she still has music in her, she still has things to sing about, she’s still being inspired….TELL ME that’s not a living testimony…So when people throw shade, I bring forth the iron fist…

    This is why I stan for this woman…she’s so successful, and she’ll never know the impact she’s had, BUT she’s humble! And that’s why people LOVE her. You have absolutely NO PLACE to tell her she should give up singing. How would you feel if someone told you what you could NEVER do? Exactly. So I’ll say this to you and ANYBODY who has anything negative to say about Brandy. If you aren’t bothered, and if you don’t have anything good to say, just leave! No one’s forcing you to say anything, and me as well as so many others are NOT here for the negativity. This is a Brandy post, so please let’s save all that drama so we can bless Brandy with the love, support, and positivity that she rightfully deserves.

    Thank you.

  75. Cristian November 28, 2011

    RealTalk you are so wrong….Brandy had a hit just a few years back when she killed an innocent woman and left her children motherless lol…I think that was her biggest hit matter of fact.

  76. RealTalk1 November 28, 2011

    @Bran Star–I’m not the only one telling her to give up the music thing Brandy said it herself in her short trailer that she feels this is her last chance after a string of failed singles and albums….she already knows whats up b/c virtually this would be her last at a major label if she flops again…its that Toni Braxton syndrome while I love me some Toni she needs to hang it up as well even with a reality show the interest is on Tamar not Toni.

  77. RealTalk1 November 28, 2011

    Lmao@Cristian you are so f’d up for that one lol…thank God none of my faves ran anyone over

  78. Bran Star November 28, 2011

    You all are gonna burn in hell for using that tired, weak ass car accident SHADE as a platform to display your supposed moral compass…You all are just like like Pharisees and Chief Priests in biblical times that Jesus speak out against…”They honor me with their lips, but their hearts are far from me”

    “they pray in the middle of the streets and in the midsts of the synagogues wanted the approval of being seen by their peers”.

  79. Bran Star November 28, 2011

    Brandy’s first released in 4 years, her single “Right Here (Departed)” debuted at number 83 on the Hot 100 the week of Sep. 27, 2008. The single peaked at number 34 on the Hot 100 following the release of the album on Dec. 9th. The single reached the Top of the Hot Dance Club Play chart (becoming Brandy’s first single to accomplish that). The single peaked at number 39 in Canada.

    Brandy’s single “Right Here (Departed) also managed to reach the Top 10 in France, peaking at number 7 from digital downloads primarily. Right Here (Departed) also managed to hit the Top 40 in other countries such as: Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Denmark, Germany, and Sweden, outselling any single effort from the “Afrodisiac” album.

    So where’s the non-hit??

    @Bran Star–You are a typical stan one who when their artist is flopping in the States brings up international markets lol yet if it was any other artist who was flopping in the States like Beyonce or someone you would say flop and would not care about international markets. Point is that Brandy’s singles from Human disappeared fast and hardly got airplay….face it she was hot but after she had a kid, lied about the maritial status, put out weak material and killed an innocent woman to rush to a studio of all things lol she fell off…thats why she is doing shows that no one watches like 90210 and Lifetime shows b/c she is pretty much done…and dont bring up the Tyler Perry thing b/c a lot of hasbeen stars have graced his films and have not made a comeback. Its ok to be a fan but be honest with yourself that your girls career prospects are not looking to hot…again I wish her the best but she is asking for the jokes when she keeps coming back with flops.

  81. Cristian November 28, 2011

    @Real Talk–co sign, co sign, co-sign!!!!!! Please lets stop talking about Brandy before we all wake up and find a Bronco ran into our house lol.

  82. Cristian November 28, 2011

    Oh lets not forget she did “Dancing With The Stars”, even Snooki said on “Wendy Williams” that you dont do DTWS unless you’re career is completely flatlined lol. I cracked up so hard when she was going to drive to the restaurant and Maks said “No I’ll drive” lol *subtle shade–I see you maks*

  83. Bran Star November 28, 2011

    OKAY, if Brandy’s such a hasbeen, washed up, and a FLOP to you, then just leave! Say your blessing and just get the hell out of here with that mess…It’s just sickening.

    She hasn’t even come out with anything yet, and you all are already saying it’s no use!!

    I don’t care what any other artist is doing right now. I don’t care, nor do I compare their success to the one I’m here for. I’m here for Brandy, she’s my one and only, and if you have a problem with it….Too bad, you can kick rocks with an open toe shoe. Now STEP!

  84. Cristian November 28, 2011

    Wow @Bran Star if Brandy is you’re one and only you need to start putting your stock in something else haha, cuz you aint getting nothin’ but letdowns over there.

  85. Cristian November 28, 2011

    @Bran Star–I know you cant compare other artists to Brandy b/c every artist thats female thats out is doing better than Brandy can dream of lol so a comparison would be foolish on your part lmao!

  86. kaleb November 28, 2011

    Why argue with the hater?? you know they are going to first ones trying get a listen to Brandy’s hot music? BRANDY is BACK and bringing the goods!

  87. kaleb November 28, 2011

    Aagin…….. Why argue with the haters?? you know they will be first in line trying to grab some hot new Brandy music. BRANDY is BACK and bringing the goods!

  88. Bran Star November 28, 2011

    @Kaleb

    Couldn’t agree more. Brandy’s gonna bring the music and they’re gonna be front and center with it.

  89. Cristian November 28, 2011

    Front and center my ass….no one cares about her anymore and its funny that only two people are stanning for her right now…this thread only got 81 comments and about half were mine lol.

  90. LMAOOOOO November 28, 2011

    @Shady1

    for Brandy not to be relevant you sure are PERCHED in this topic. LOL

  91. LMAOOOOO November 28, 2011

    wow, you guys are instane. just stop!

  92. Bran Star November 28, 2011

    @Cristian

    You’re a mess, your font shows that you’re pressed. Admit it dummy!
    Brandy has LOTS of haters, and that means she’s still doing something right…And if you didn’t care about her, then you wouldn’t be running back to this post so quick over and over again, digging up videos and doing research. Brandy HAS your MIND, and you lost at your own game dipshit dumbass looking f**! I’m not here for the hypocrisy!

    Spot your fail, musty ass c***!

  93. The Real B(randy) November 28, 2011

    Who is this Cristian clown? Like really? B is solidified in the industry and everyone has given her, her graces. Soooooooo, womp. You’re prolly a geek who no one likes or listens to and uses the net as your VOICE to spread hate. #Next

    Come on, B!

  94. Heh November 29, 2011

    What, are we taking a break from Beyoncé vs. Rihanna and taking a time machine back to 1999 and revamping the Brandy vs. Monica feud?

  95. NICK November 29, 2011

    LOVE HER CANNNNNOT WAIT!!!!

  96. Bran Star November 29, 2011

    No we’re just so amped and excited to hear Brandy’s new single!!

  97. VA STAND UP!!! November 29, 2011

    Wow at this post! Just WOW! Um…how did this become a Brandy vs. Monica post?! WTF?!?!

    Oh and Sam, the Mariah shade…really?! Was that neccessary? You are such a messy Queen at times. I wouldn’t be surprised if that wasn’t just a way to p*** off a former blogger for this blog who shall remain nameless. So tacky. SMH.

    Anywho, I LOVE Brandy, always have, always will! I still listen to her old albums and I do think that she is still an incredible vocalist I honestly think her vocals have gotten better over the years but I can admit that I don’t ealthink people have reallly been checking for her over the past couple of years. Not that I am not eager to hear new music from her because I am but I am not exactly on the edge of my seat.

    I do think going a more ‘commercial’ route may benefit her, judging by the industry right now, she has to capture people’s attention and something commercial rather than a typical r&b ballad may do that. I just hope she doesn’t go to pop and comes off as ‘selling out’ but I doubt she will.

    I’m looking forward to whatever she comes up with (mostly her record with Breezy) and good luck to her! We’ll see if she can make a comeback!

  98. uk #starz November 29, 2011

    @va stand… yes a huge WOW to this post. These haters claim to think Brandy is odne yet they have enough time to talk about her.lmdao
    Yes Brandy has done some faults in her life but who hasn’t???????????????????????????
    You don’t have to like Brandy but using someone fault to knock her down is pathetic and do hope none of y’all go through what Brandy did. It a small world and what goes around comes back around so people watch what you say to other cuz you might be going through exactly the same way next.
    Brandy will always be here with us so deal with and accept the fact that she is still doing and people are definitely looking forward to hear and see her.
    Drop dead for all we care…lmdao 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂

  99. b**** please November 29, 2011

    Love Brandy. One of my top ten favorite female singers. To the person who said Monica shits on her…..
    Never Say Never & the debut sales say otherwise.Monica. Has been struggling.
    Even with human and her greatest hits flopping. She still has sold more.
    How soon we forget makings of me flopped hard.
    Just recently. New life was pushed backed because it would have flopped.
    Brandy Vs Miss Thang: Miss Thang
    Never Say Never Vs The Boy Is Mine:NSN
    All Eyez on Me Vs Full Moon:Full Moon
    Afrodisiac Vs After The Storm:Afrodisiac
    Human Vs The Makings Of Me:TMOM

  107. YesSirr! November 29, 2011

    Brandy just give it up! SN: @ Sam, Mariah’s voice may not be the same as it was back in the 90’s but she still has a 5-octave vocal range, that brandy will never have…. Also today Mariah can sing STILL sing circles around brandy….. sooooo _/ (sit!)

  108. Cristian November 29, 2011

    @Yessir–Thank You!!! Someone around here with common sense…as for Brandy she will have to answer to god for the murder lol

  109. Cristian November 29, 2011

  110. Sweet Tea November 29, 2011

    Lmao y’all stop!!! I’m just happy the girl aint singing in her bathroom no mo’ cuz that s*** was wack. I would die of laughter the day I see Whitney, Mariah, Rihanna or Christina singing in the bathroom posting Youtube videos lmao.

  111. Bran Star November 29, 2011

    @Cristian, negro please, MANica ain’t slaying nothing but another album push back. DEAD @ RCA investing their coins and money in Brandy’s album and they told MANica to completely re-do her album! Hell, I’d be mad too! A Hot ghetto recycled musical mess….

    You guys are pathetic, and it’s clear that your flop faves aren’t doing enough to hold your attention, which is what Brandy is doing right now! Have all the seats and stay mad!!

  112. RIRISTAN November 29, 2011

    HEY HATERS WHO RATTLED YOUR CAGES???? OK THINKING, OH I KNOW……………………….ITS BRANDYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY. ROTFLMAO 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂

    PS! MY FAVE IS EVEN A STAN SO WHATS YOUR BEEFS??? #ICANT!

  113. Sweet Tea November 29, 2011

    Can she still operate a vehicle? #justsayin’

  114. Ci’Yonce November 29, 2011

    Boy oh boy aren’t the #STARZ having a FIELD DAY with the HATERS. Lol! Pathectic how you imbecile C**** try to DOWNGRADE B-Rocka. The majority of y’all goes out to the ones who listen to the GARBAGE music along with the S***** ass artists we have today. Let me GO IN on you F**** because CLEARLY y’all stay #PRESSED. Brandy ain’t got s*** to prove NEVER have NEVER will because she has REMAIN true to herself and her craft. She has been in the game for 15 years on so forth. EDUCATE yourself lessors before you post irrelevant s*** that is NONSENSE. Comparing Brandy to a bunch of lessor we have today in the music industry is BAFFLING.

    @CRISTIAN

    F*** I bet you’re not even a Monica fan. You’re just using her as a scapegoat to shade Brandy. I’ve never been a fan of hers I’m talking about Monica that is. She is talented and can sing but I’ve never been interested in her music but I’m not shading her or putting her down. Anyways back to your MUSTY CORNY and PRESSED delusional ASS. Brandy SHITS you will #DEAL. Deal with the FACT you stay trolling on her posts waiting for the #STARZ to GO IN on your ass because you know you’re PRESSED. If you don’t like Brandy why bother coming here? You have a REASON it shows. Brandy is coming for wigz haters #DEAL

  115. Travis Green November 30, 2011

    From everything that I have read on this page, I’m completely laughing out loud. If people really think Brandy doesn’t have it anymore, why even post something on this page. The point is that they know Brandy is about to bring that fire and reclaim her throne. Truth is, no artists out there can compare to Brandy’s vocals, runs, harmonies, melodies, must I go on. People talk about Beyonce, Rihanna, Monica, or who ever can out sing Brandy. Check this out…. Every album Brandy has put out she clearly has worked with different sounds with her voice. Beyonce and them always seem to stay with just one sound. Mix it up alittle. Further, like I said Brandy is about to dominate the charts with this upcoming single. It’s in the making. Like Mary J. Blige said, you can’t hold a good woman down. Can’t wait to hear the new single and the new album. Game on B-ROCKA! CUZ THIS TIME SHE’Z BACK 2 STAY!

  116. KWAME November 30, 2011

    B****** WITH NO TALENT GON BE THE SAME NO MATTER HOW HARD YOU TRY TO EDUCATED THEM. SMH

  117. #STARZ AROUND THE WORLD November 30, 2011

    Can these boring , pathetic and low life loosers start telling me something about Brandy I don’t already know they gonna say??? rotflmao

  118. Sweet Tea November 30, 2011

    Murder was the case that they gave her lmao!!! Monica was on Wendy Williams today–happy she has remained relevant unlike her rival. Brandy was rumored to be a b**** to her and Countess Vaughn now Karma is biting her in the ass the way it did Xtina Aguilera….Brandy hasnt moved units in a decade its time to in the words of Nicki Minaj “Hang It Up Flat Screeeeeeeeen”!!!!

  119. Sweet Tea November 30, 2011

    @#StarzAroundTheWorld–whos pathetic??You’re stanning for someone who is no longer relevant or a threat to any artist on the charts….b**** had to kill someone to get ink spilled on her lol. I bet you stan for Ashanti and Olivia too–y’all seem to love these fallen off b****** hahahahahahahahahaha.

  120. RIHANNA November 30, 2011

    @SWEETTEAM, I JUST CANNOT WITH YOU CUZ YOU CLAIM BRANDY IS IRRELEVANT YET SHE’S MANAGED TO GET YOU DRIVING UP THE WALLS……..BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH!

    BTW BRANDY>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>MONICA……ROTFL 🙂 🙂

  121. DELUSIONAL November 30, 2011

    Who is this Brandy got this b**** cray! There something called being LOYAL which is why Brandy gonna be our fave till the end of time. You are clearly a Bandwagon Jumper so go ahead and move on to the next hottest chick in town, sad old b****. Oh and you can jump off a cliff while at it too.

  122. Bran Star December 1, 2011

    @Sweet Tea

    Monica is only relevant to blacks…Elsewhere, she is a NON-FACTOR!! Don’t NOBODY know her name outside of the black community…Ask any white person who monica is…they wouldn’t be able to tell you who she is…You’ll have to clue them in with BRANDY or ‘The Boy Is Mine’ DEAL with the fact that Brandy has always been a bigger household name that Monica, and it will remain that way! DEAD @ Brandy outselling monica’s career with ONE album, hell I’d be mad too!!

    DEAD @ these pressed ass Monica fans flooding this section with their hate! Notice Monica hadn’t talked about new music because she has NO ALBUM to promote! Wasn’t “New Life” supposed to come out October 13? Then November 1, Then December 13, and now it’s next year…Your fave stays flopping that’s why you try to shade Brandy because y’all know she’s bout to SLAY monica’s career ALL over again! She ain’t slaying nothing but another pushback. Get ready cause in 2012 Brandy’s coming for wigs and you all better have your wig glue ready!!

  123. JG December 1, 2011

    Brandy is fixing to slay.. Brandy is a worldwide star. SHe sales else where. Brandy wins this one hands-down!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  124. Sweet Tea December 1, 2011

    @JG–only thing Brandy is about to slay is another innocent citizen on the roadways lol

  125. Sweet Tea December 1, 2011

    Also white people dont know who Brandy is unless you mention “Cinderella” or “Moesha” lol so y’all need to have a seat its not like we are talking about an internationally known diva like Whitney or Mariah, y’all are making this nappy headed trick bigger than she is….Newsflash its not 1998 anymore.

  126. B**** PLEASE December 1, 2011

    THIS IGNORANT TWAT IS STILL GOING CRAZY ABOUT BRANDY YET HE/SHE CLAIMS BRANDY AIN’T RELEVANT, LIKE REALLY???LOL *CLAP CLAP*
    B**** PLEASE GET A JOB!!!!!!!!!!

  127. BRANDY FAN FROM UK December 1, 2011

    Go suck a d*** or something cuz Brandy is good and we are ready to support her for the rest of our lives. 😉

  128. KWAME December 1, 2011

    @sweettea Oh so you actually remembered to list down some of Brandy’s accomplishments right. Ok I now rest my case bcos I’ve realised you’re just being silly which isn’t even funny anymore.

  129. Bran Star December 2, 2011

    @Sweet Tea, Brandy has international appeal, unlike Monica. Brandy is the 1st african american female to play cinderella, and she was selected by Whitney, a legend that monica admires, but she chose BRANDY!

    The shade! Oh, and Double Platinum was just on today, and it feautured duet between Brandy and Diana Ross. DEAD @ Brandy collaborating with the movers and shakers in music while monica gets the scraps, hell I’d be mad too!

    No shade to monica, cause she has an OK voice, and OK music, but her stans can get it! They will NOT try the vocal bible that is Brandy here on my watch! When is monica going to see the Top 40 on Billboard ever again? When is a monica single going to chart outside of the US? When is monica going to headline her OWN tour?? I’ll wait. She went from touring up with keyshia cole, to opening up for Trey Songz…lmao FLOPica b****!! LMAOO!!

    The only thing MANica is slaying is another album pushback. Instead of worrying about BRANDY, you monica fans need to focus on her struggling singles…

    You all REALLY need to keep it really light and cute on Brandy.

  130. vocalbible December 2, 2011

    @Branstar, Preach……baby 🙂 🙂 🙂 !!!!!!!!!!
    Haters drop dead!!!!!!!!

  131. #STARZ AROUND THE WORLD December 2, 2011

    @SWEATTEA YOU SIAD IT YOUR SELF IE BRANDY HAD BEEN RUMORED SO THIS GOES TO SHOW THAT YOU ARE ONE OF THOSE WITH NO BRAIN THAT ARE EASILY BRAIN-WASHED BY THE MEDIA SO JUST DO YOUR SELF A FAVOR AND STOP MAKING LESS FOOL OUT OF YA SELF. BRANDY IS ALRIGHT AND WE WILL FOREVER SUPPORT NO MATTER WHAT THE MEDIA SAY.
    #STARZ UNIT………………………….ONELOVE!

  132. c*** December 2, 2011

    brandy who?

    mariah’s voice may not be as strong as it was in the early 90s, but it still shits all over brandy’s. stay pressed sam.

  133. Bran Star December 3, 2011

    @C***

    Oh, shut the hell up. PIGriah has long exhausted her mainstream apeal…Her best years are FAR behind her, hell I see why you’re mad! DEAD @ PIGriah only catering to blacks and following trends, the SHADE! Deal with that truth UGLY! You can have ALL the seats motherfucking c***, cause we’ve YET to see the best of Brandy UNlike F******. Bran’s still got fresh vocals to lay, b****** to slay, and music to make. STAY MAD while you track the vocal bible’s movements…
