Brandy Likens Label Contract To Slavery / Compares Case To Ke$ha

Published: Tuesday 19th Jul 2016 by Sam

Brandy is charging ahead full steam with legal proceedings to release her from a record contract with Chameleon Entertainment.

As reported back in March, the Vocal Bible has filed suit against the company – to who she has been signed since 2011. And now further details have been revealed.

Full story below…

TMZ have obtained documents pertaining to the case and they make for a compelling read.

B-Rocka asserts in the suit that Chameleon promised her hundreds of thousands of dollars in production costs to make her albums. That, she says, did not happen.

She further alleges that the label made a point of preventing her from recording and releasing new music. Practice which puts her singing career in limbo.

The 37-year-old argues that Chameleon ironically tried to pressure her into giving up her non-recording revenue streams such as concerts and Broadway shows.

Not holding back, the star’s lawyer verbatim states that “Brandy Norwood’s story is ‘Kesha Redux, but without the sex.” As widely reported, Ke$ha lodged (and lost) a claim against Dr. Luke for a similar contract dispute, the main difference being the accusations of rape in that narrative.

Per the report, Brandy seeks release from the contract as well as compensation of the dollars she claims she’d owed her for pay or play fees.

For reasons yet to be determined, the current suit was filed this week in New York. The previous entry, which initially generated headlines three months ago, was filed in LA.

**************

We just hope for a speedy resolve. The entire matter defines unfortunate and has ultimately denied fans a new album for four years.

      LMAOOOOO @ your screen name. ???

  4. jec2 July 19, 2016

    No Mam. Labels spent a ton of money on her failed projects. LOVE BRANDY. But she also held out of paying her investors their due….and if you do that, YES, you get trapped in slavery. You can’t have people making risky investments in your work and not not give them their share.

    • MUSICHEAD July 19, 2016

      Brandy funded her own production costs. RCA didn’t lose a dime on her last album. They made $2 million off the project. U have no idea what you’re talking about.

      • Credits July 19, 2016

        You could tell they didn’t spend that much on her, watch the ‘put it down’ and ‘wildest dreams’ videos…but musichead, who are you? You seem to have knowledge that the common commenter on here does not have. How do you know they made 2 million? Just curious….I like reading your comments.

      • MUSICHEAD July 19, 2016

        Thank u. Honestly, it’s mostly based on industry math. Two Eleven sold 180,000 copies. Multiply each copy by $8 and that’s $1.4 million plus the revenue from Put It Down and Wildest Dreams. Brandy spent most of the money needed to record the album, promo budget was minimal and the music videos were sponsored by technology companies. That means everybody made money except for Brandy.

      • Jec2 July 20, 2016

        The label only owns the master recording, not the publishing. So take that $11.99, take out 35% for apples share. Then take out 50% of that and you have the labels portion of the revenue they’re entitled to, $3.98. So that’s $736K the label gets. However, each song on that album costs between $8K-$20K to produce, plus the paid features. So you can easily subtract $200K. Then you have Maketing, advertising, artwork photoshoots, PR retainers, videos, very expensive live TV promo(the label pays all travel, band, clothing, styling, hair and makeup and staff expenses on these runs), and Brandys advance…..the label barely made their return back. Trust me.

  5. The Kpop Guy, Matt~ July 19, 2016

    Brandy, just create your albums and complete your contract!!!?
    Then you can continue your work as the subway queen

    • BEYSTAN_ SINCE 1997 July 19, 2016

      Oh I forgot she is mobile now… Remember when she used to sing in her bathroom on all those old YouTube videos lol!

      • The Kpop Guy, Matt~ July 19, 2016

        Screeeeaming as long as they keep her from behind the wheel

    • HailLegendBeysus July 19, 2016

      I see Gags next gimmick is in effect. Won’t be surprised if they rekindle their relationship after LG5 is released. That’s if the “rumors” are true.

      • The Kpop Guy, Matt~ July 19, 2016

        Lol can we not maxwell?

    • Danzou July 19, 2016

      You’re not funny. That subway singing was a test and her singing in the bathroom sound better than half the industry led led alone any kpop artists you Stan so.

      both brandy and hehe are the biggest flops in musi cso stop it boo

  9. July 19, 2016

    Hope Brandy wins , no need to bring kesha’s name to the lawsuit tho that’s irrelevant …

  10. Mark111 /.\ July 19, 2016

    She never had it imo. Just a teen star from the past.

    • MUSICHEAD July 19, 2016

      This coming from a fan of someone who could never outsing or outsell Brandy.

      • Mark111 /.\ July 19, 2016

        And Brandy haven’t had a successful album since Aaliyah was alive.

    • Annalise July 19, 2016

      Never Say Never > Every Aaliyah Record. It’s so funny because those that actually have decent music taste and remember the 90s, will know that Aaliyah was outperformed and outsold by most of her peers (i.e. Brandy, Toni, Monica, Britney, etc), and the majority of her accolades racked up after her passing. Perhaps if she didn’t have such IGNORANT stans then she’d have more respect in these streets.

      • Molly #TheMostRelevantBitch July 19, 2016

        Yet Aaliyah has more impact than Brandy I don’t use either but its the TRUTH.

      • Mark111 /.\ July 19, 2016

        Aaliyah had two double platinum albums and her final album went gold right before she passed. So no flops hookers, unlike Brandy who haven’t had any success since Never Say Never. She was basiclly Ashunti and Ciara, two successfull albums, and nothing but flops after. Be mad, but facts are facts.

      • #JACKIE July 19, 2016

        But didn’t Brandys first three albums go platinum and her 4th go gold? Aaliyah was on a downward spiral (no pun intended) until she died and everyone went out and purchased her albums. Alicia was slaying her in 2001. Hell, Mary J was too. No one was checking for We Need A FLOPolution.

      • Annalise July 19, 2016

        You keep thinking that Mark! Like i said, thankfully there are people on this blog that actually bothered research the FACTS and clearly she was being outshone and outsold by her peers. Brandy and Monica each had more number 1 singles than Aaliyah while she was alive, while Brit had more number 1 albums. FACTS ONLY! When it comes to you stanning for Rihanna, the only thing she has over her peers is number 1’s; so why is it a different story when it comes to Aaliyah (and I’m only using Rihanna to solidify my point, so let’s not go overboard).

      • Annalise July 19, 2016

        *bothered to

    • Monica Stan July 19, 2016

      She is a flop has been just like Aaliyah.

    • Coolness July 19, 2016

      Why do you always try to rewrite history? No matter how you try to spin it, Brandy was BIGGER than Aaliyah in the 90s. DEAL! Did the former’s career start to cool by the turn of the millennium, yes but it doesn’t change the aforementioned FACT. You don’t like it when people get revisionist with Aaliyah so do the same to Brandy?

      • MUSICHEAD July 19, 2016

        Well said! Aaliyah was more of a singles artist in the 90’s. She had hot songs on the radio but she never had a strong base to help sell her albums. And I personally bought every Aaliyah album when they came out so I am definitely not a hater. But everyone knows Brandy, Monica and even Mya were bigger than Aaliyah when she was alive.

      • Royalkev July 19, 2016

        @Musichead

        I ended up purchasing every album Aaliyah recorded (except the 1st album), so I feel the same way! It’s no hate, but Brandy, Monica were definitely bigger. It’s no other way to spin it! Although these stans try…

    • Royalkev July 19, 2016

      Why is that everyone you stay mad at outsold Aaliyah? … and I’m not even being shady, just honest! I’ve been biting my tongue because I don’t like putting Aaliayh down, but your delusion is cray!

      Real talk, here’s 3 truth for you!
      #1 Aaliyah wasn’t competition for Brandy!
      #2 I know how it pains to see Bey end up having the career you always wanted for Aaliyah, but she’s never been on Bey’s level (during any of her 5 eras)!

      #3 Musically, Aaliyah had the edge on Ciara, BUT Ciara’s is 10x better as a performer! Matter fact 20!!! You’re putting all this energy in remaining bitter about the 90’s and every diva surpassing Aaliyah! Fact remains, it’s not stopping anyone from coming 2nd to her!

      • MUSICHEAD July 19, 2016

        Ciara is definitely the better performer. Honestly, had Ciara come put in the 90’s, she would have been huge.

      • Royalkev July 19, 2016

        @Musichead

        Exactly! Overall, I’d still choose Aaliayh over Ciara (as an artist), but Aaliyah wouldn’t have wanted it from Cici. They occupy the same lane and it is no doubt in my mind that Ciara would have slayed Aaliyah!

  11. flawda July 19, 2016

    She wasn’t saying that when she was selling albums. Can’t be a freedom fighter when it’s beneficial to you.

  12. ???????Chile, take this “Itty Bitty Piggy” to the market and make sure you hold her hand while crossing the street!??????? July 19, 2016

    Look, as long as I get new music from her soon I couldn’t really care any less.

  13. John A. July 19, 2016

    Hoping the best for Brandy and I hope to get new music from her soon.

        Lemonade is also at 1.5m in sales according to HDD and 1.7m with equivalent sales. Streaming accounts for only 12% of her total sales compared to other’s this year LOL!!!

    • ???????Chile, take this “Itty Bitty Piggy” to the market and make sure you hold her hand while crossing the street!??????? July 19, 2016

      Don’t even worry about it, sis. It’ll be back in the top 3 on the Top 200 soon.

      The longevity is real!

  17. Sofresh105 July 19, 2016

    That’s what her ass get lmao karma is a b****!

  18. MUSICHEAD July 19, 2016

    If she signed that contract, Breyon Prescott would be her boss at Chameleon Records and at Epic Records. That’s a conflict of interest. That’s like your boss running your department and the HR department at the same time. How does that work?

    • Mark111 July 19, 2016

      Stop fvcking for success when no one been checking for you since 1998. Or take notes from Mariah and JHo.

  19. Royalkev July 19, 2016

    I just wish that this split can happen as quickly as possible! Bran should go independent, it’s just a better move for at least 95% all 90’s artists imo! She wasn’t supported or promoted (especially after ‘Put It Down’). These labels need to allow these artists to have at least 3 singles off each project before pulling the plug! Give Brandy her freedom! Nobody deserves to have their musical output limited and stifled.

  20. Danzou July 19, 2016

    It’s annoying when you f*** try and shade brandy of all artists. You think you’re funny but you’re not. She’s the first cover girl that was a black singer. The first black cinderella. Four certified albums and multiple platinum singles. Been in movies and two successful TV shows not to mention a successful run in Broadway meanwhile you f*** are bluffing beyond a computer screen.

    • Mark111 July 19, 2016

      Last but not least, NOT buying anything Brandy. Mad?

      • Danzou July 19, 2016

        No one was buying aaliyah till she died. Mad?

      • Mark111 /.\ July 19, 2016

        2 double platinum albums before the age of 18 says other wise. Enjoy your 20 years a flop fave.

    • Royalkev July 19, 2016

      ^ No lies! These stans really want you to believe that girls doing a fifth of what Brandy was doing, somehow trumped her!

      • Royalkev July 19, 2016

  21. Mark111 July 19, 2016

    Brandy is DONE, no matter how long your essays are. 🙂 One would think that she was the one that died in 2001 the way she been irrelevant the passed two decades.

    • Nothing but Truth July 19, 2016

      You’re a savage, no lies told though.

    • MUSICHEAD July 19, 2016

      But you show up to every Brandy post like a VIP member. U act like u not here for Brandy but u got perfect attendance lol.

      • Mark111 July 19, 2016

        Same can be said about you in my reply section.

    • Danzou July 19, 2016

      Brandy had a platinum single in 2013 as well as a successful tour which is more than you can say for aaliyah

  22. Nothing but Truth July 19, 2016

    Mark told no lies, Brandy’s a 90’s murdering subway singing has been who’s last hit was the “The boy is mine”. I mean let’get real here, her last 4 albums flopped hard. And to end it all, she’s a shady fake b****, and Karma has finally caught her ass.

    • MUSICHEAD July 19, 2016

      Her last 4 albums have sold a combined 4 million copies and earned 3 Grammy nominations. If that’s flopping, 90% of the b****** in this industry are flops.

      • Mark111 July 19, 2016

        Lies! That would mean that all 4 sold a minimum of a million or one of the four sold 3 million. Full Moon sold 1 million in the US and the other flops sold NOWHERE near that. Nice try tho.

      • HailLegendBeysus July 19, 2016

        Yea, I have to agree with Marsha on this one. Her last four albums sold 2.4m combined.
        Fullmoon 1,250,000
        Afrodisiac 660k
        Human 300k
        Two Eleven 180k

    • HailLegendBeysus July 19, 2016

  24. HailLegendBeysus July 19, 2016

    @MusicHead Those are her Worldwide Sales lol! No Shade because Aaliyah was never on Brandy’s level!
    But you’re acting like Slavi and Inflating numbers hahaha!
    .
    Moon Era
    Canada: Gold 50k
    Japan: Gold 100k
    UK: Gold 100k
    US: 1m
    .
    .
    Afrodisiac Era
    Japan: Gold 100k
    UK: Silver 60k
    US: Gold 500k
    .
    .
    Human
    US: 214k
    No other certifications so I just rounded her Worldwide Sales this era at 300k
    .
    .
    Two Eleven Era
    US: 180k no other certifications so it could be 250k ww.
    .
    .
    So I don’t possibly believe she sold an extra 2m WW.

    • Danzou July 19, 2016

      Yeah 4 mill is pretty inflated but these are far from flop numbers.

  25. Danzou July 19, 2016

    @fag111 u can be mad all you want but the truth is that brandy has been doing things Aaliyah has never done nor will she ever do again and I hate to say it cuz I don’t like talking against aaliyah but you push me. Aliyah was never America’s sweetheart like brandy was especially after f****** r Kelly and marrying him at FIFTEEN YEARS OLD. Aliyah was like the kehlani of the 90s.

  26. Danzou July 19, 2016

    Do yall think yall mothers would be proud of the way you see women?

  27. Bitchpleaseeee July 19, 2016

    Children on this post are so funny as hell. B**** don’t come for Bran cuz she has made an impact in this biz some of you could even remember. Check out upcoming artists like Travis cover of Controlla by drake. You can easily tell he’s influenced by Bran. Give credits where it’s due and stop with the childish. B****** bye ???

    • Danzou July 19, 2016

      You’re talking about travis garland aren’t you? That man can sing his ass off! And yes brandy is all over his vocals. These accounts are bitter little girls and/or men who don’t like girls that wish they were girls that know nothing about music at all other than “kii b**** slay me yas give me life for the gods” in a comment section for UP VOTES HOW SAD CAN IT GET?

  28. Mark111 /.\ July 19, 2016

    They can bring up a singer that been gone for 15 years all they want, TODAY Brandy is a flop and looks like she’s a slave now. The end.

    • Danzou July 19, 2016

      We can bring up a singer that’s been dead for 15 years all we want because THEN she was a flop. You’re the one who’s always bringing her up and getting her dragged you filthy little fat f***.

    In fact I’m a Monica, Aaliyah and Brandy fan as well as Bey, Riri and have been to their concerts but I’m to busy to be involved in these petty Stan wars.
    As a matter of fact I have every single of Aaliyah’s albums and I’d just bought Aaliyah and listening to it when I heard the bad news. I cried my eyes out and till today I find it so difficult to listen to the album cuz it remind me of her passing.
    Jeez guys grow up and be productive with your time and energy cuz life is too short. Besides, this childish behaviour is so 90s so let it go and enjoy the 2016 hot summer ???☀️? #EveryArtistsMatters

      Loooool

    During the 90’s Brandy & Monica dominated the charts. In the early 00’s Aaliyah & Mya was more so in the forefront and experience greater success than Monica & Brandy. Neither Brandy nor Monica was included in any Billboard’s End of the Decade charts. Aaliyah & Mya were though. Brandy’s success/sales dwindle with each era over time.

    It’s comical to see people single out Brandy’s flops (after her commercial successes), but pretend artists like Aaliyah was going to beat the odds if she lived. No one will stay on top forever! The 2000’s decade was the first decade in which we saw almost EVERY 80/90’s diva flop! Let’s spell it out:

    The Flops from the Big 4 (in the 2000’s)
    Whitney (Just Whitney, 2002)
    Janet Jackson (’20 Y.O.’, 2006 / ‘Discipline’, 2008)
    Mariah Carey (‘Glitter’, 2001 / ‘Memoirs’, 2009)
    Madonna (‘American Life’, 2003 / ‘Hard Candy’, 2008)

    Major Divas:
    Toni Braxton (‘More Than a Woman’, 2002/ ‘Libra’, 2005)
    Mary J Blige (‘Love & Life’, 2003)
    Alanis Morissette (‘So-called Chaos’, 2004)
    Brandy (‘Afrodisiac’, 2004 / ‘Human’, 2008)
    Monica (‘The Makings of Me’, 2006)
    Erykah Badu (‘ Worldwide Underground’, 2003 / ‘New Amerykah, 2008)
    Enya (‘And Winter Came’, 2008)
    Lil Kim (‘The Naked Truth’, 2005)

    Even 2000’s debuting artists struggled (before the end of that decade):
    Pink (‘Try This’, 2003)
    Shakira (she recorded her 1st English albums in ’01)(‘She Wolf’, 2009)
    Norah Jones (‘The Fall’, 2009)
    India Arie (‘Testimony: Vol 1’, 2002)
    Eve (‘Eve-Olution’, 2002)
    Hilary Duff (‘Dignity’, 2007)

    But Aaliyah would have slayed if she lived? Every artists listed above saw higher peaks than Aaliyah did (before her death)! I’m very much here for Aaliyah, but she would have been no exception!
    The 2000’s just saw a natural decline/was hit or miss for just about everyone’s favs!

    Who was thriving in 2000’s decade?
    It was good to be Beyonce
    It was good to be Alicia Keys
    It was good to be Britney Spears
    It was good to be Rihanna
    What legend was it good to be? Sade
    Even JLO and Ciara played a strong role in that decade.
    It is what it is!

      Stop deflecting, they’re not talking about those other artist, they’re talking about Brandy’s flopage of 4 straight albums, and her being a 90’s has-been.

      • Royalkev July 20, 2016

        Just say that’s what YOU want to focus on! You’re exaggerating, Brandy doesn’t have 4 flops and she has no more than most artists do by this time! I said what I said because it’s mainly hurt Aaliyah stans on this post desperately trying to start a beef when there isn’t one!

      • Kev July 20, 2016

        It still doesn’t take away that she’s a flop has-been, so it doesn’t matter how you try and spin it. It’s ok.

      • KVH July 20, 2016

        “Brandy doesn’t have 4 flops”

        ———-

        Yeah she does: Full Moon (which sold less than half of what NSN did and only narrowly sold a million at a time went hit albums were still selling 5-6-7-plus times platinum), Aphrodisiac, Human and 211. The count is four. All flopped. Technically, Brandy only has two hit albums under her belt. Her first and second. The rest failed to do what they were supposed to. Fans kill me trying to pretend that Full Moon was a success. It’s like they know they can’t spin the others, but try with that one.

      • The Real July 20, 2016

        Brandy’s been flopping lately, but Full Moon wasn’t a flop. You can’t base that album’s success off of what it sold compared to the previous album. FM wasn’t a blockbuster, but it wasn’t a flop. It still went platinum. If your going to compare FM to the first 2, you ought to take into account that the album wasn’t even promoted that much because Brandy was pregnant then. Fair is fair yo!

      • KVH July 20, 2016

        In the music industry, an artist is worth and judged by the sales of their most recent album. If NSN sold 5 million and FM had done 3-4 million, then that could be argued as still being a success, with a fair/realistic dip. But FM suffered close to an 80% drop from NSM. By industry calculation, that’s a flop. If she were some brand new singer, selling a million would have been considered a success. But she was considered a major pop star, who was expected to do much more than that. Her label probably poured millions into the production cost of that album, expecting another blockbuster, and I doubt they were satisfied with that result. I know she was pregnant and couldn’t promote it as much, but the fact remains that it didn’t deliver. And she has been unable to bounce back from it. Every album after saw sales worse than the one before. So ultimately, Brandy’s only hit albums were the first two. The last four have failed.

    Comparing this to Ke$ha was just being in the contract, and not able to move on. SO LEAVE BRANDY ALONE FOOLS-BRANDY has more talent in her thumb anyways, & I LIKE KE$HA, but being stuck in the contract is the story here u dummies!

    • Danzou July 20, 2016

      Thank you these f*** is full court pressed

  35. Janni July 21, 2016

    Brandy is a living legend. She so fly that she even survived the fisherman. And now suck your daddys d*** & good night yaw

  36. Tim Brown July 24, 2016

    Regardless it is a blessing for Brandy to have certifications for those albums period. Some artist cant even ship or stream certifications! Good job Brandy!
