Brandy On New Album: “It’s Definitely In The Works”

Published: Thursday 11th Feb 2016 by Sam

It’s ‘Two Eleven’ today, as such it’s the birthday of Vocal Bible Brandy.

The singer, who turned 37, isn’t one to rest. She’s hot on the promotional trail for the season 1 finale of her BET series ‘Zoe Ever After.’

In a new interview with Entertainment Weekly, she was quizzed on the whereabouts of her next album – her first since 2012.

Find out what Ms. Norwood had to say after the jump…

Via EW:

How did the song ‘Beggin & Pleadin’ come about?

BRANDY: I went through a very difficult breakup. They say when you go through something as painful as what I went through, you get a good song out of it. I used that moment to connect to my feelings and produce a life-changing vocal for me. But I’m happy all by myself now, which is liberating. I’ve never felt the way I felt right now.

What was the turning point for you?
I was tired of my daughter seeing me exhausted and sad. I wasn’t setting a great example for her. So I had to change what my inner dialogue was saying to me. I told myself, “You need to go all the way,” so I went—all the way to Broadway [to star as Roxie Hart in ‘Chicago’], all the way to the studio, and all the way to Atlanta to produce and star in ‘Zoe Ever After.’

Have you been listening to other artists?
I’m really inspired by Adele, ever since she stepped onto the scene. Her, Jazmine Sullivan, and Amy Winehouse—those are my three core favorites. Fantasia too! I think she’s awesome.

Does the single mean there will be an album soon?
There’s definitely one in the works. I’m recording in Los Angeles. I’m working, singing, and I’m ready. Nothing is going to get in my way.

Is the whole album written already?
It’s written and I’m writing. I’m not depressed anymore, so I really want to sing about my present life because I’m not sad anymore.

It’s been a long four years, but we’re hopeful patience pays off.

B-Rocka is an act renown for her qualitative output and it’s clear she’s been wanting to live life so as to inspire her material. As evidenced with ‘Beggin,’ she now has much to say and has us salivating at the prospect of what’s to come. Her current “listening-to” list sounds promising too.

Your thoughts?

    She scares me to death
    no not only because she’s actually a murderer but her looks like ewww
    Tranet in the making, and what’s more scary is she was actually born like this unlike Tranet and Botox
    Monica got and keeps her shaking

      First off… It was proven, Brandy was not the cause of the accident but the woman who died who was actually high on several drugs caused he accident, second, b****** out here getting surgeries to have Brandy’s NATURAL features and third, Monica has and will never be on Brandy’s level. Brandy has won over 100 major industry awards and has sold over 45 million records WW while Monica is still struggling to sell out auditoriums in Atlanta. Stay pressed and bow down to The Vocal Bible

    Who is buying it though?

    • Y’all Poor AF February 11, 2016

      Who bought Britney’s last album… Chile bye, instead of worrying about Brandy, worry about whether or not Britney can bend her knees and if her child visitation privileges won’t be revoked

      Why are you so aggressive?

  6. GAslickmouf February 11, 2016

    I love Brandy I wish her luck with the album. Brandy surprise me a lot sometimes, I be like I didn’t know she can sing like that”. Brandy discussion!! I dnt care what anybody say Never say Never vocals alone! Not sales or fame her vocals alone one that album was LAZY! OK on the other hand Brandy 2nd album her voice did change but it culdve been she didn’t much know how to use her instrument, whatever the case 1 to 10 I gave it a 6.

    As the albums went by I’m like oh s*** I didn’t know she could do that, 211 I feel of her true vocal bible gift. By all means Brandy is not the best singer in the world, but I do however hear a multiple of different ranges and tones.

    She still grinding like all the rest, hope she does well along with everyone else. I think we do kinda need R&B back on top this BS I hear now damn is it safe for me to listen to music now omgee, just rambling now. K bye

    This Bish been making promises about the album since 2014, meanwhile she’s wasting her time on her new Flop show.(0.487 viewers.

  9. ???Chile, leave my weave aqt the door and don’t steal it like those broke ass barb stans??? February 11, 2016

    Yes! I NEED her to deliver another “Focus” and “Slower” on this new album. I seriously hope she tours too. This is perfect, since she has her show slaying on TV right now. Good for her!

    Happy Birthday Brandy i love all your work…

    It’s just something about Brandy’s music that’s so special to me. I feel lucky to have my favs all out delivering great music. Bey has energy like no other, she’s the most dynamic! Janet’s the most sensual artists I’ve ever hard, but her music is also inspiring at times. Whitney is like a movie and I just sit back in awe of the voice, she really sends chills all over my body…but Brandy’s music is feels the most personal. I enjoy that about her and it’s necessary for me! I can’t wait for the new stuff!

  12. yesterday was Aaliyah 37birthday to the good music February 13, 2016

    Happy belated birthday brandy and can’t wait for brandy come out with more music
