Exclusive: Brandy Talks New Album / Says “I’m Singing These Songs Like They’re My Last”

Published: Monday 22nd Sep 2014 by Sam

*Pinned: Posts Resume Below As Normal*

With many hailing Brandy as the definitive Vocal Bible, it’s only natural that a bellowing buzz has greeted the news that she’s working on her seventh studio album.

The singer/actress has made no secret of the fact that her life has “changed” of late, with the emotions she experienced following said occurrence set to serve as the foundation of the new LP.

As such, when we caught up with the star at the Hollywood Confidential event in Los Angeles recently, we had to ask about the project and, of course, her other upcoming plans – including her return to ‘The Game’ on BET.

Check out our EXCLUSIVE interview with Brandy above and be sure to let us know what you think below…

    If u flop once again, be sure that can be your last songs.

    • knock on norwood September 19, 2014

      If you breathe once again, can you make sure
      That it’ll be your last breath?

  3. KingSays September 19, 2014

    Stfu Brandy doesn’t make music that flops he makes music that lasts for decade we are still banging Never Say Never, Full Moon & Afrodisiac & deleting your faves “new” material to make space for all her catalogue cuz she that timeless

    • A. September 19, 2014

      Lol, well said!

      music never flops, music stays forever, even if artists dissapear or die, music is inmortal, thats the beauty of it

    • SMH September 19, 2014

      The Billboard charts and Soundscan say different.

      • LB September 19, 2014


      • A. September 20, 2014

        and that matters because?

        do you get any money from artists sales or something? lol.

        Music is done to make people enjoy, if you only care about sales, poor you

  4. truth September 19, 2014

    Sam needs to take a creative writing / communications class so she can retire her TIRED lil sayings. “Clap back”, “did you miss it”, “vocal Bible” etc… predictable, pathetic and embarrassing.

    • MC&TB4LIFE September 19, 2014

      Girl I’ve been saying this s*** for a while now. How can Brandy be billed as a vocal bible? These lil f*** and their lil sayings. I cant!

      • Bey stan September 19, 2014

        Ok, talking about vocal bible LOL that gets me every time. This chick sounds like she’s been smoking cigarettes since birth, seriously, she has the worst voice ever.

    • The one September 19, 2014

      Lol y’all be so pressed and act like brandy just one day said I’m the vocal bible… When clearly the fans and your old sloppy fav gave her that name so don’t be mad hahaha y’all so stupid lol I be really wanting to slap some of y’all

  5. pat September 19, 2014

    CAN’T WAIT. listening to the slayage she put forth on her WALLS GROUP and CHRIS BROWN features as we speak

  6. truth September 19, 2014

    She’s such a commercial flop. Hasn’t been able to sell records since the 90’s.

    • knock on norwood September 19, 2014

      No one is selling records dummy. Have
      A librarian seat.

      • SMH September 19, 2014

        Tell that to Taylor Swift & Adele as you have a stadium of seats.

      • knock on norwood September 19, 2014

        Brandy, adele, and Taylor swift. Three completely
        Different artists who aren’t peers, nor are they even contemporaries. There’s no comparison and your argument fails. #next

      • Jay-Z/Eminem Rap Gods September 19, 2014

        Lol stop with the excuses, Brandy STOPPED selling records in the 90’s.

  7. knock on norwood September 19, 2014

    Brandy doesn’t need to sell a single album
    For the rest of her life. The fans just want
    Great music, and we can surely rely on her for
    That. #nuffsaid

    • LOL September 19, 2014


      • knock on norwood September 19, 2014

        No, dummy. She’s already sold millions. She
        Doesn’t have to prove anything to anyone,
        So you need to fall back in something that
        Reclines. #dealwithit

      • Bey stan September 19, 2014

        Don’t you stan for DeclineGa? Brandys first four albums are RIAA certified. Your fave probably will never see another cert.

    • Kim Kardashian September 19, 2014

      Righhhhht lol what a Crack of bull. That’s because you know she won’t be selling shut ever

  8. A. September 19, 2014

    finally! thanks for posting

    wish it was a bit longer, but still nice. Cant wait for the new album!

  9. doubline47 September 19, 2014

    Love Brandy. Can’t wait for her new album

  10. Lindsay Lohan September 19, 2014

    Commercial performance may still be the first priority in this industry, but no one can try and take away her artistry and vocal prowess in her own music. She’s one of those artists who stay true to their brand no matter what. I just hope she gets the recognition she deserves. Continue to do you, Brandy.

  11. SMH September 19, 2014

    Stop it, TGJ. Nobody regards Ray J’s sister as the “Vocal Bible” except TGJ. Monica can have laryngitis and make this girl sound like Britney Spears.

    • knock on norwood September 19, 2014

      You are clearly mistaken. Stacey barthe, dawn
      Richard, and Jordan sparks have referred to Brandy
      As the vocal bible. She will only get better and
      Continue to get her props. And stop playing. Vocally, Brandy will drag monicant all day every day, and twice on Sunday. #knowthis

      • Bey stan September 19, 2014

        I agree. I like Monica. She has a heavier tone than Brandy but she is not a better vocalist. Not even close. Brandy was my fave before Bey and she still has a special place in my heart! I like Monica too but the only album of hers that I truly loved was After The Storm….

    • bee September 19, 2014

      riiiiight! Because Brandy is the one getting dragged all over social media for embarrassing herself at the mayweather fight???

  12. Jansel September 19, 2014

    Firstly I love Brandy she is so beautiful. Okay girl we know you can sannggggg but will these songs be bangers like albums 1 and 2? The only albums that matter? It seems like these girls never learn. She isn’t even old. ’90s style music is making a comeback.

    • knock on norwood September 19, 2014

      Haha, but that only happened because no one knew
      She was the surprise performer. Brandy definitely
      Has fans over in africa. When will your
      Fave have an unreleased song get airplay and chart
      In a foreign country like Brandy?

    • The one September 19, 2014

      I hate when late tired ppl post this lol because it’s be cleared up but the ppl in Africa and management that they didn’t know she was coming, and to top it off she booked a show in the same place after that and it sold out, ppl always wanna say she done but look up all her concerts they are sold out so was the one in l.a. When I went, put it down was a top 3 for weeks new artist aren’t doing that so to say she’s done, stop it …ps stop mentioning ciara in a brandy post we all know brandy sings circles around her thank u!

  13. LB September 19, 2014

    That last part though, it won’t be her site once she sees how people are dragging her in these comments, poor Brandy.

    Is there anyway I can get a refund for Two Eleven? I haven’t listened to it in what, about a year

    • knock on norwood September 19, 2014

      But you still bought it, so she has your coin,
      You insignificant bum. #haveaseat

    • Bey stan September 19, 2014

      Lol a Rihanna stan really? Who listens to her albums after a week? Microwave music.

      • LB September 19, 2014

        People that get her songs to the top of the charts. Speaking of, when is pretty hurts entering the Hot 100?

      • Bey stan September 19, 2014

        Why hasn’t Rih seen a multi platinum album since 2007? Oops that wasn’t even multi it was double. 🙁

      • LB September 19, 2014

        I think that’s the same year Beyonce got her last #1 hit no??

      • Bey stan September 19, 2014

        Let’s talk albums, tours, networth, relevance, accolades, metascores… $1.29 singles don’t entice me.

      • LB September 19, 2014

        Yes, because you can’t afford $1.29, which is why ALL of Beyonce’s singles have flopped this era

      • bee September 19, 2014

        Why hasn’t Rih seen a multi platinum album since 2007? Oops that wasn’t even multi it was double. 🙁

        more than one; many, especially variegated


      • LB September 19, 2014

        But why hasn’t Beyonce had a hit since the same year?

      • Bey stan September 19, 2014

        I spent $16.99 on her ALBUM, why would I buy her singles?
        UNAPOLOGETIC – 1.2 million in 22 months
        BEYONCÉ – 2 million in 9 months

        Pretty pathetic if you ask me 🙁

      • Bey stan September 19, 2014

        Loud – 1.8 million
        Why hasn’t that outsold take care or pink Friday with all those #1s?

      • LB September 19, 2014

        Oh that’s cute, now count the number of RECORDS Unapologetic has sold in comparison to Beyonce, I’ll wait.

        In the meantime, Rihanna’s last #1 hit, early this year, Beyonce’s last #1 hit, 2007 LMAO

      • CherylSoldierr September 19, 2014

        B**** you must be dense. Absolutely no one is checking for record sales that are 85% singles. Sit your a** down.

    • BeautifulDisaster89 September 19, 2014

      But wasn’t drunk in love top 2 hit on billboard hot 100? not to mention her album broke itunes records lol

  14. Bey stan September 19, 2014

    Why do people always bring up Monica on Brandy posts And vice versa? That argument is sooooo tired but the gays insist on dragging that 90s rivalry out. I’m anticipating a new brandy album. All of her albums give something different but it’s still signature Brandy. Her best album imo is Afrodosiac!

  15. Proud-Arianator September 19, 2014

    good luck Brandy you are a very talented and beautiful woman.

  16. Vocal Bible Brandy September 19, 2014

    It amazes me how the vocal illiterate try to criticize Brandy, and her success as a renowned vocalist, yet they can not comprehend a single melody, harmony, or background vocal. Girl bye! Brandy slay all your faves. What they doing she did it, before the age of 21.

    • knock on norwood September 19, 2014

      Yes! Nothing but the truth! Say that.

  17. Metzo September 19, 2014

    Lol at the haters. Keep seething. Brandy still shits on your non-singing faves. I can’t wait for her Album. Her voice is amazing. #VocalBible

  19. napespeaks September 19, 2014

  20. Blazed September 19, 2014

    YES!!! Thank u ThatgrapeJuice for this interview:
    Brandys music will always Go Hard
    The Music Industry needs Her, Because her music is timeless
    Dont get me Started on the vocals blessings of Chris Brown track ‘Do Better’ She went in!!

  21. King September 19, 2014

    Glowwwraaay! My body is ready!

  22. BeautifulDisaster89 September 19, 2014

    I love Brandy I just wish she had the same team from brandy to afrodisiac era because they made sure that she was being recognized they made sure she was heavily promoting….nowadays her promo is ok but it’s not where it could be for someone whose had numerous of hit records and platinum albums it’s just odd to me

  23. Be stan September 19, 2014

    What an ugly flop overrated b****. What is this now, her 4th flop in a row.

  24. Jessy September 19, 2014

      • Skyfall September 19, 2014

        The inflation is real, most of these are of shipments Death. Beyonce just crossed the 100 million records sold mark so I know damn well she hasn’t sold more records than Rihanna, Britney Spears, and Whitney houston.

    • african music lover September 20, 2014

      and which sales are shipments because it is sure as hell isnt those album sales,because some sources actually has dangerously in love at 11+mil, IASF at 8+m and Bday at 7+mil,so which shipments are you talking about?? Singles?? um sure after her records are revised,Rihanna and britney are close to 200mil..as for the legendary whitney,i think her records are underated, there is no way her records are under 200mil,

  26. Queen Aretha September 19, 2014

    lol I swear, Brandy fans as are the most delusional. They hype this girl up to be some kind of vocal God, LOL, when in reality, she’s just a notch above Alvin and the chipmunk’s.

    • knock on norwood September 19, 2014

      Coming from someone whose fave smoked cigarettes
      And lost her voice well before the early 90s.
      HATEretha is smoked out!

    • The one September 19, 2014

      Lol haha is this a Aretha fan coming for brandy? Haha didn’t party sing her fat ass under a bus …..#pattiwins patti voice still on point but that Aretha girl please

  27. Orange is the new black September 19, 2014

    Wait a min, wasn’t her last hit in the 90’s :/, and isn’t this like her 3rd flop album in a row, and didn’t she just perform to a stadium of empty seats, and isn’t she the one who’s vocal cords sound like it’s been through a grinder? OH, THAT FLOP B****, POOR THING.

    • The one September 19, 2014

      Last hit was put it down shut up and do research, she was a surprise performer and they didn’t know she was coming …again do research is sometimes I don’t believe y’all can read lol dumb …and another if u think no one will come out to see brandy perform then again do research look up how she sold out in japan africa …stop it lol

  28. knock on norwood September 19, 2014

    Haters like you always seem to keep up with
    Her activities, despite her “lack of success”.
    D get a job, and a life dummy!

      Lol @ the underlining shade..lol

      • YoursGrande111 September 19, 2014

        No no no no shade

  30. Jay-Z/Eminem Rap Gods September 19, 2014

    Honestly, i’ve never really liked Brandy. Her fans make her out to be more than she is, and no shade at all, just giving my honest opinion, I think her voice is pretty basic, it’s just so harsh and nasally.

    • Knowles Carter September 19, 2014

      Stop trolling under random usernames. We get it. Now it’s time for you to get a life….

      • Jay-Z/Eminem Rap Gods September 19, 2014

        What! I don’t think so, move along b****.

    • knock on norwood September 19, 2014

      But she has your MIND.
      You pressed haters stay losing.

  31. Knowles Carter September 19, 2014

    LMAO beyonce outsold Unflopagetic locally and worldwide in a much shorter timespan. Stop dragging your f****** self lovebored. The car accident jokes are old and heartless. She was found not guilty in the court of law but she still gave the kids 500k each!! Brandy slays and every one of your faves agrees. She isn’t one of Rihanna’s favs for nothing.

  32. LB September 19, 2014

    I’m just wondering why my presence here keeps you guys more pressed and flat as an ironing board.

  33. LB September 19, 2014

    “LMAO beyonce outsold Unflopagetic locally and worldwide in a much shorter timespan.”

    So I should be impressed that Beyonce is doing Rihanna numbers when you call Rihanna a singles artist for doing the same numbers?

    Count the record sales for both Beyonce and Unapologetic honey, Una > Beyonce.

    And since we have already established that the numbers Beyonce is doing are not worthy of deeming her an album seller, and the fact that she has better chance of growing a blonde hair strand than she does scoring a hit, what is she considering she is not an album seller?

    At least Rihanna can sell singles, Beyonce can’t sell albums nor singles.

    • Knowles Carter September 19, 2014

      But it took Rihanna almost two years to sell what bey did in 9. The jokes on you. How’d the monster tour do btw?

      • Knowles Carter September 19, 2014

        9 months

      • LB September 19, 2014

        Just like it took Beyonce 3 years with “4” to sell what Rihanna…oh wait, 4 didn’t outsell, nor sell the equivalent of Talk That Talk did it?

        Well I guess I’ll leave that one alone.

      • Knowles Carter September 19, 2014

        She barely outsold 4 which is sad because 4 didn’t have any commercial hits!!!

      • LB September 19, 2014

        She didn’t barely outsell 4, she flat out outsold 4. And it is not Rihanna’s fault Beyonce has got a better chance getting through an entire novel of twilight than she does getting a hit. And that is assuming she reads the twilight novel by herself without any help

      • Knowles Carter September 19, 2014

        4 -3 million
        TTT – 3.4 million

      • LB September 19, 2014

        The real figures are
        4 – 2.8 million (it didn’t cross the 3 million mark)
        TTT: 3.4 million

    • YoursGrande111 September 19, 2014

      The real Kii is that Beyoncé can sell R&B albums with no WW hits or any Pop radio. The real embarrassment is when someone with no promo actually outsell someone who did 777 Tour & countless #1 singles Stay & Diamonds yet still being outsold by a woman who had her last #1 2008 that’s just sad

        Spill tea sis these navy members are delusional

      • LB September 19, 2014

        The real Kiii is yours Truly’s album sales

    • YoursGrande111 September 19, 2014

      The real kii is that MOTS is also gold status her debut album. Fans of Britney, Beyoncé, Mariah etc should be shading people with debut album sales not the navy who stan for an untalented h** that sucked Jay Z’s diick to be famous probably without Jay Z that hoee would be still cutting coconuts in Barbados. Anyways

      • LB September 19, 2014

        But music of the sun sold more copies than Yours truly, yours truly remains the kiiiii

    • YoursGrande111 September 19, 2014

      Both Gold status your point?? Its not like its platinum plus it had a #2 hit it should be double platinum atleast look @ BEYONCE

      • LB September 19, 2014

        Honey, count the world wide sales.

    • YoursGrande111 September 19, 2014

      You always contradict yourself idhtt for you african f******

      • LB September 19, 2014

        The contradiction is an Ariana fan coming for Rihanna when the only thing you should be aiming for is getting Ariana a platinum album.

        Out of her reach it seems eh

  34. YoursGrande111 September 19, 2014

    Rihanna aint s*** so stfu

  35. YoursGrande111 September 19, 2014

    Rihanna can’t sing nor dance.. She can entertain.. She’s s***** live. She only has a beautiful face. She’s the definition of a model with a mic. Even Madonna is more talented than her. Her fans should stop comparing her to someone high like bey

  36. LB September 19, 2014

    Maybe when you figure out what language Ariana sings in, maybe then we can concentrate on getting her album to platinum.

    Until then, you can listen to that mumbling nonsense to wherever you take that b******* you’ve written.

  37. YoursGrande111 September 19, 2014

    Well why is the GLOBAL popstar being outsold by a Local 33 year old R&B lady with no pop radio support or WW singles? Why is that?

    • UGH September 19, 2014

      Why is Ariana flopping and stealing songs from the Divorcing Chanteuse 1993 albums? Worry about your own local fav and that f***** up attitude. You’re just like the ugly b**** you stan for, hopping on d*** from top d*** with no results.

  38. tamartiannika September 19, 2014

    Why is nonsingin a** rihoenna being mentioned with beyonce and brandy ewww she has no musicality at all no ear no range no music talent at all

  39. tamartiannika September 19, 2014

    does rihoenna even know how to harmonize? she surely didnt at the grammys when her dum ass sang in unison with bruno and rohan marley.

    • Hollyhood September 19, 2014

      Ne-Yo had to teach her dumb ass about basic musical terms such as “staccato” so the answer is, no.

  41. Hollyhood September 19, 2014

    I for one am excited for new Brandy music because she always delivers. Regardless of the sales and everything else you idiots argue over, Brandy’s artistry is what makes me a fan. Don’t get me started on her vocal ability. I want the new album to be experimental as Full Moon but smooth and moody as Afrodisiac. I wanna hear those stacked harmonies!!

    • UGH September 19, 2014

      Stacked harmonies DOES NOT = Talent (nor sales in her case).

      • Hollyhood September 19, 2014

        Who said they did and why are you so pressed by MY comment? Lol.

      • knock on norwood September 19, 2014

        @ugh you’re just MAD because whoever you stan for
        Can’t do anything like Brandy does. Seethe

  42. Skyfall September 19, 2014

    Beyonce – 30 million albums sold with 5 albums
    Rihanna – 26 million with 7 albums

    So Beyonce the album seller has sold only a measles 5 million more albums than Rihanna. Even considering the fact that Rihanna has 2 more albums Beyonce barely outperforms her. So why is Rihanna a singles artist and Beyonce an album artist Death. Rihanna has also sold more singles then Beyonce, so sales wise Beyonce is Rihanna’s lessor.

    Rihanna – 150 million records
    Beyonce – 110 million ( not 130 -160 ) like that troll stated above, but even if it were true wouldn’t that make Beyonce a singles artist too. DoubleDeath.

    Beyonce slays with touring and endorsements though.

    • CherylSoldierr September 19, 2014

      Sky fall that logic is really bad. Beyonce sells about 6 million per album w those numbers. Rihanna does just over 3. So Beyonce is the clear album seller. Rihanna is obviously a singles artists because 85% of her record sales are singles. The receipt doesn’t really mean much anymore though when songs like tik tok are doing 14 million. Katy is gonna slay rih soon tho, so id watch for that. Beyonce as an entity slays rihanna period. Her fans don’t even need to defend that. That’s what society as a whole has decided.

    • CherylSoldierr September 19, 2014

      Not to mention that worldwide rihanna is competitive, those US sales tho?!

    • YoursGrande111 September 19, 2014

      Album sales : Beyoncé > Rihanna
      Acclaim : Beyoncé > Rihanna
      Impact: Beyoncé > Rihanna
      Talent : Beyoncé > Rihanna
      Touring & Endorsements : Beyoncé > Rihanna
      Single Sales : Rihanna > Beyoncé
      #1s : Rihanna > Beyoncé
      Overall Records : Rihanna > Beyoncé. (If Include DC its the other way round but rihanna has 80 % singles anyways).
      Overall Beyoncé is commercially, artistically & Acclaim > Rihanna. Both are big tho

    • YoursGrande111 September 19, 2014

      If Beyoncé’s Records are 110M so with 30 Million album sold she has sold 80 Million Singles??? Are you forreal? Lol That doesn’t even make sense goodnight maam. Bring accurate receipts before you come up with those irrelevant stats

  43. knock on norwood September 19, 2014

    Most if these h*** on this page are probably
    Monica stans who didn’t even buy her last album.
    Monicant is done! Suck it and swallow it!

    • CherylSoldierr September 19, 2014

      Brandy too sis. She cried over a moderate urban hit. Put it down didn’t even chart high on the bb100

      • knock on norwood September 19, 2014

        @cherylsoldier Correction! It actually rose to #65
        On the Hot 100 with no pop airplay or support.

      • CherylSoldierr September 19, 2014

        Death it doesn’t need pop support to rise on the hot 100. That’s not a pop chart. Even 2 on got to the top 30.

      • knock on norwood September 19, 2014

        The hot 100 is a pop chart, sweetheart. It’s
        The most popular music across the board. These days
        In order to chart high you need high sales, streaming, payola, clear channel deals, etc and pop
        Airplay for big singles. If Brandy had any of that,
        She would’ve easily had another top 40 single.

      • CherylSoldierr September 19, 2014

        It is not a pop chart. The top 40 chart is a pop chart. That’s why you see ALL genres on the hot 100. Tell me how blake Shelton was able to get a top 20 hot 100 hit, or Ciara w body party? The fact is that your girl didn’t get the sales to hart high on the chart. A 65 peak is not good.

      • Hollyhood September 19, 2014

        No shade to Ciara because I adore her, but Two Eleven sold more. Heck even Human sold more than Ciara’s last three albums.

      • Hollyhood September 19, 2014

        Two Eleven sold more than “Ciara”*

      • knock on norwood September 19, 2014

        @cherylsoldier it was good enough for an artist who doesn’t sing pop music, especially for an artist who doesn’t release albums annually, and it was good enough for an artist who has four year gaps between albums. Who else can do that and have at least moderate impact? Name five female r&b, African American singers who had a top 40 song this year, not named beyonce, rihanna, or nicki minaj.

      • CherylSoldierr September 19, 2014

        Death at you not responding to my hot 100 receipt. And that’s not the point. Your genre shouldn’t limit your success. Great music eventually crosses over.

      • Hollyhood September 19, 2014

        “great music eventually crosses over” LIE! Look at all of the urban songs in the top 30 now. They’re crap. Jeremih, Bobby Shmurda, random one hit wonder rappers. The best urban song to too the charts this year was John Legend. Sevyn Streeter was good too, but that was last year.

      • knock on norwood September 19, 2014

        @cherylsoldier and yet you couldn’t answer my question either. Your comment reveals your ignorance about the lack of parity and structured inequality in the music industry. There’s nothing left for me to say in this convo.

      • CherylSoldierr September 19, 2014

        What question? What female r&b star got a top 40 hit? Why does that matter? None of them are. So you want brandy to be the best in a group of flops? What kind of fan are you? And good music does eventually cross over. John legend was that example. Adele was that example. So it’s not “LIESSSsS.”

      • Hollyhood September 19, 2014

        @cheryl but I thought knock was talking about black female artists outside of Beyoncé, Rihanna and Nicki? John Legend was a rare case. AOM was a beautiful song but very pop friendly. His last hit was in 08 and peaked at #24 and his follow up to AOM kinda bombed. What about Tamar? k Michelle? Monica? Ciara? Elle? Melanie Fiona? Kelly Rowland? Etc?

      • CherylSoldierr September 19, 2014

        What? My point was that all of those girls need to be better? And AOM was a piano ballad. Only 3 of those have topped the hot 100.

      • Hollyhood September 19, 2014

        Piano ballad and very pop friendly. Just like Rihanna’s Stay and Xtinas Say Something. F*** the charts anyway. If you’re black (and not Bey, Rih or Nicki) you have to sell your soul for a ratchet, remedial DJ Mustard or Mike Will Made It production to top the charts these days.

      • CherylSoldier September 19, 2014

        Girl what’s the difference between that and ordinary people? Death. And i just think it’s a bit of an excuse. Theres truth to it, but brandy can get better than DJ mustard beats.

      • Hollyhood September 19, 2014

        Ordinary People peaked at #25 I believe and I enjoyed it more than AOM. OP was released when R&B still had a chance to chart. The new rules changed the entire scope of the industry unfortunately but that’s an entirely different convo. Brandy can do better and she seems to be working with lesser known producers this time around. People really don’t give her a chance because of her screw ups like all of us haven’t f***** up a few times in life. Her discography is great, especially her unreleased tracks but it’s cool if people don’t vibe with her because I will.

        You know what’s funny though? If she were to get a #1 hit tomorrow, her posts would be ENTIRELY different, and the random “brandy stan” usernames will start popping up out of nowhere. Most people here stan for sales and success. Zzzzz

      • CherylSoldier September 19, 2014

        Duh, she’s a legend. She needs better material, because what she’s been releasing only appeals to a niche market nowadays.

    • Hollyhood September 19, 2014

      @Knock like I said previously, I love Ciara but Brandys last three albums outsold her last three. Honestly, Brandy only has two flop albums because Afrodisiac went gold without any hits. Her biggest hit in years was Right Here and it peaked at #34 without much urban support.

      • The one September 19, 2014

        You guys are dumb put it down was top 3 for weeks

    • The one September 19, 2014

    I can’t wait for this album! I have no idea what Bran is thinking to do next. She’s always challenging herself to do something new and creative. This is why I can only respect her, it’s what makes her such a great artist. Say what you want about her, but Bran always provides quality music.

    • Stanning for talent September 20, 2014

      Wack, she’s overrated and basic as hell.

    I’m Still waiting on your fav to get a vid like this lol

  51. african music lover September 20, 2014

    and which sales are shipments because it is sure as hell isnt those album sales,because some sources actually has dangerously in love at 11+mil, IASF at 8+m and Bday at 7+mil,so which shipments are you talking about?? Singles?? um sure after her records are revised,Rihanna and britney are close to 200mil..as for the legendary whitney,i think her records are underated, there is no way her records are under 200mil,

  52. Child please September 20, 2014

    What a flop. Talk about having tone deaf fans, like seriously, this b**** sounds like smokey the bear lol

  53. knock on norwood September 20, 2014

    I’ll be ee understand why the haters go well out of their way to convert us, or convince us that Brandy isn’t all that. “Oh yall overhype her, she’s not this, she’s not that….” like wtf? Have any of you thought maybe we just hear something in her most of you don’t? If someone wants to think Brandy is the best singer ever, why should that upset you? Let us have our own opinions, otherwise we won’t stop making cases for why she should be appreciated. Brandy has been praised by artist in and out of her main genre. People have covered and sampled her music, and wrote songs inspired by her voice. Ages one of the most technically sound singers of the past 20 years, and we have the receipts to back it up.

    A lot of you folks in here are pitiful trying to read her with no resume and critique her with NO credentials. Try a little basic ear training before you attempt to criticize Brandy. She makes music that rewards close listening.

    • Child please September 20, 2014

      Stfu, she’s overrated and basic, deal with it.

      • knock on norwood September 20, 2014

        Don’t speak about your mother like that.

  54. yaass September 20, 2014

    Brandy is always saying that she is trying new things. I’m her biggest fan but her problem is that she needs to try OLD things. She needs Rodney, Big Bert and Lashawn on this new project and make old school real music or else she is out. She can’t afford another flop trying to be hip and young and futuristic. She is an adult and she needs to make quality music with quality mature experienced musicians. COME ON B !!! Give your fans what they deserve.

  55. Blacksista September 20, 2014

    I should have known all these comments weren’t praise. Anytime an artist have great news in there career there always 100+ comments of hate. Why? There is room for everyone.

    • A. September 20, 2014

      the only reason there are many people always hating is because they are soooo unhappy with their own lifes, that the only thing that makes them feel a bit better is laughing about artists sales.

      Sad, but a big truth.

      Hate is just the other side of unhappiness.

  56. Lolz September 20, 2014

    Yesss @ Yours truely dragging for Bey. And why the goat (animal) fans shading Brandy when their fave cant even carry a tune let alone be referred to as vocal bible.

  57. Drea September 20, 2014

    LoL why is the Navy in here hating on two vocally superior artists (Bey and Bran)? Give Rihanna a mic and a stage and what will she do? Stand there and sing the song exactly how the writers/producers taught her in the studio? Adding nothing to the song to bring it to life? Exactly. She has no vocal talent at all. Give Beyonce and mic and watch her rip the song to shreds and improvise. Same with Brandy. They actually have TALENT. REAL, PURE TALENT. Rihanna said it herself.

    Rihanna – “Beyonce is my biggest idol”
    Rihanna – “Brandy’s Afrodisiac album really helped to inspire that as well, because that album I listen to all day, all night. When I was in the studio that was the album that I listened to all the time and I really admired that every song was a great song. You could listen to the entire album. And I was like, ”You know what? I have to make an album like this.”
    Rihanna – “You can’t deny that voice! (Brandy)”


  58. Janet1814 September 20, 2014

    The guy interviewing her is so stupid. If she’s in the studio then of course she’s recording new music you twat! And when you mention the last record, you always drop the name for people who don’t follow the blogs. I know people that think Afrodisiac was her last record! And can he sound any more excited *sarcasm*.

    TGJ – if you need a solid reporter in LA then hit me up. I can do far better than this imbecile!

  59. Stephy September 21, 2014


  60. Speak on it. September 21, 2014

    Ugh, she is SO BASIC. The way her fans hype her up, you would think she’s the best. There is absolutely NOTHING special about her voice, NOTHING, it’s raspy, mumble, and annoying as hell. I ask this, why haven’t I EVER SEEN her on any top female vocal list, I mean, she is the vocal bible right LOL “That cracks me up every time”.

    • Steve September 26, 2014

      But how many songs of hers have you heard though? I’d guess 3 to 4 tops….I get it, her voice can be a little too raspy sometimes but it’s much more than just a raspy voice. Listen to her tone, her riffs, her harmonies. You gotta be patient when it comes to a vocalist such as Brandy cos she’s always switching it up, trying different things and sometimes you might go “wtf?” but then you listen to it again ad realise how vocally complex it is to do what she had done on the track. Patience and open mindednesss is the key here

  61. SMH September 22, 2014

    I Just Love Brandy and That is all.
    Thank You for a being a Blueprint for RNB, and slaying 20yrs later.
