From The Vault : Brandy & Wanya Morris – ‘Brokenhearted’

From The Vault is back this week with a R&B duet courtesy of the Vocal Bible herself Brandy alongside Boyz II Men crooner Wanya Morris. Today’s pick is ‘Brokenhearted’.

Originally a solo track from her eponymous 1995 debut, ‘Brokenhearted’ was remixed by Soulshock & Karlin for its single release, making way for fresh new vocals by Morris.

As the 5th and last single off said album, it gave Brandy her third Top 10 in the US by peaking at #9 on the Billboard Hot 100 – it also reached the 2nd position of the Hot Hip-Hop/R&B tally.

The laid-back groove’s visual – directed by legendary videographer Hype Williams – presented the ex-lovebirds in a moody yet vivid dream-like environment. Rocking her 90’s trademark box-braids, a then-aged 16 Bran was already showing all the signs of a diva-in-the-making proving yet again that age is but a number when you have « it ».

With the singer/actress recently confirming that work was underway for the follow-up to the criminally underrated ‘Two Eleven’, we can’t help but anticipate what the future holds for Ms. Norwood. Indeed, the ‘Put It Down’ vocalist’s craft seems to get stronger and more diverse with time – contrary to some other divas from the last two decades – and with her qualitative stock already sky-high, it’s quite obvious we’re in for a treat.

Bring it on, B-Rocka!

    Some people think saying who is shade but really all they’re showing is that they’re ignorant. Being ignorant is never a funny thing to be, so saying who is self shade.

    They don’t make music like this anymore.

    • BeyBeyKing July 6, 2014

      Ain’t that the truth, musicality has really died.

      • RoyalLorde July 6, 2014

        It hasn’t died but has taken a backseat, it’s coming back though.

  11. Chyna Doll July 6, 2014

    People gave Aaliyah crap over the R Kelly thing, but these two were effing around as well. She was 16 while he was 22.

    • Julian July 7, 2014

      True, but 16 and 22 is still slighty different (and a lot less creepy) than 14 and 27… just sayin’.

  17. Blacksista July 6, 2014

    Love her. Brandy ain’t going no where so you better get to know who she is

  18. RoyalKev July 6, 2014

    This is my favorite ballad from Brandy. Gosh, I just love her! Her music from every era is so amazing! Those first three albums slay though (along with Two Eleven)! I admire how Bran continued to grow artistically and vocally. She’s always been a very special artist to me.

    • tits mcgee July 7, 2014

      Everything you wrote was truth(as usual!). P.s. I love the re-design of your Avi! #DivasOneAndAll!

      • RoyalKev July 7, 2014

        Thank you! <3

    If you don’t know who Brandy is that says more about you then it does her. Think about it…

  20. Brian310 July 7, 2014

  21. Del July 7, 2014

    Brandy is everything…that tone, her vocal agility, her harmonies, her range…God really gave her a gift. but its sad how some of these “kids” view her these days…they know nothing.

    who ever had the time to make numerous accounts to say “Who?” is petty as hell. The real question is… “WHO” does s*** like that? if you don’t like her why did you put forth so much energy to be derogatory. But if you want to know who, ask your favorite singer who they’re inspired by b****. Or better yet Google her since you don’t f***** know “Who”…lol smh silly s***
