#BrandyFreed: Singer Announces Release From ‘Oppressive’ Recording Contract?

Published: Monday 28th Nov 2016 by Rashad
2016 Soul Train Music Awards - Show

As many-a-Brandy-fan knows, the singer/songwriter has been in a longstanding beef with label home Chameleon Records.

Likening her ongoing battle with the imprint to ‘slavery’ and continued plight and fight of ‘Warrior’ singer Ke$ha, B-Rocka has rocked headlines all year for her back and forth legal battles with Chameleon and its president Breyon Prescott (who claimed the legal drama was a “desperate ploy for publicity”).

Now, after months of silence on the matter, the Grammy-winner – via a show-stopping 9-minute performance at this year’s ‘Soul Train Awards’ – sent the audience into a roar when she emphatically announced ‘Brandy Freed!’

The proclamation sent fans buzzing that new music is on the way…

      Sometimes I feel like you guys “TGJ Staff” literally post fake comments just to get people going with clicks…I see you guys ?????

      • Lea November 29, 2016

        People have been saying this for years, I believe it!

    • iamdiego November 28, 2016

      I love you too Girl, but you really mad cuz we caught the epic shade Brandy threw during the boy is mine/talk about our love transition. “Then yo whole fan base jump in, now the whole grams busin. He said she said. Don’t let it get in your head. Baby, don’t say something that you will regret. I’m on my team. Its me against me you’ll see. ‘ this was Brandy’s Bow Down lol. Yeah B…Talk yo s***!!!! HAHAHA

  2. Coolness November 28, 2016

    Good for her.

  3. WMC November 28, 2016

    Does it even matter. She’s been dropped 4 times, and hasn’t been relevant since the late 90’s, and is currently riding a fourth consecutive flop album. Her last hit was was she killed that poor lady ?

    • 4everBrandy_Ci November 28, 2016

      So what? She’s still a legend and her fans want her to put out another album. She needs a new direction and to be honest your wack ass comment proves that y’all are too stuck on the popularity and sales. Brandy will be fine! #STARZ

    • Black power November 28, 2016

      Screaming!!!!!!! @ her last hit, was when she killed that lady!!!!!!! Lmaooooooooooo

      • Boosie November 28, 2016

        There’s nothing powerful about your black if you’re screaming at such comments.

    • Trel December 6, 2016

      B**** shut tf up and go wash yo p****

  4. Sharp November 28, 2016

    No shade No tea, but what do they mean by Vocal Bible?

    • 4everBrandy_Ci November 28, 2016

      Her voice! Her tone! Her range! #VocalBible is what she is!

    • Jasmine November 28, 2016

      It’s a term some of her fans that are queens created. Brandy cannot sing circles around people like Aretha, Patti, Celine, or even Mariah’s declining voice. Plus Brandy smokes. I’ve seen her do it.

  5. Lake Erie November 28, 2016

    Yes!! Yes!! Yes!!!! Bring on the new music B-Rocka!!!! I’m ready!!!!

    Sidenote: scrolled through the last Brandy post this morning and it’s crazy how many undercover fans Brandy has… especially the ones who claim to be a fan but talk sh!t…!?!. Talking about a let down, and what was beneath her smh lol. Whatever. Obviously what yal thought was irrelevant because the fans spoke on twitter last NIGHT! And after her captivating performance, we want an album!

    So come through Brandy!!! I’m ready for whatever she’s sings but another 2/11 would be nice for me ?

    • Credits November 28, 2016

      Beneath her was right. Hey Lake Erie ??. Lol but yeah there is no denying, I’m waiting on the next album anyway.

      • Lake Erie November 28, 2016

        Yes, I can not wait!

    • 4everBrandy_Ci November 28, 2016

      They’re just upset that Brandy IS a legend and people respect her for her IMPACT in the record industry. I witnessed her in concert and I got to witness GREATNESS in front of me! She’s the best and I’m READY for her new album!

  6. Chileplease November 28, 2016

    Y’all kill me talking about sales. Who’s selling these days besides three or four people? And really only one artist is selling in r&b…Beyoncé. Forget sales and just enjoy the damn product.

  7. MUSICHEAD November 28, 2016

    Did anyone else notice that when the dancers held up the Brandy Freed newspapers, they played Whitney Houston’s voice saying “I’m so proud of you” from when she first met Brandy at the Kids Choice awards in 95? U gotta be a true fan to catch that lol.

    • Lake Erie November 28, 2016

      Aaaw!!! I caught that but I didn’t hear that part!!! I have to go back and rewatch lol.

      • MUSICHEAD November 28, 2016

        At first I thought it was Sonja but when I watched it again I was like, that’s Whitney! Lol

    • RoyalKev November 28, 2016

      What??? I have to watch the performance over again! This just put the biggest grin on my face!

  8. Brandy keeps some TGJ posters mad which is why they down vote any positive comment about her November 28, 2016

    It’s a shame how this site allows such negative comments to be posted about her given how much love she’s shown TGJ before. Monica fans aren’t active enough to down vote every positive Bran comment. Then I thought it was bey or rih fans. But if it’s tgj staff sad…

    It’s also funny how this “flop”, “irrelevant”, has been who’s been allegedly dropped from several labels still has labels interested in signing her. Why else did you think her label didn’t wanna let go of her? Most of y’all broke haters lack critical thinking skills, clearly.

    • 4everBrandy_Ci November 28, 2016

      You better GATHER these trolls because they have NO logic whatsoever! Brandy will be fine and I’m READY for her to SLAY me!!!!

  9. Gigi November 28, 2016

    Vocal Bible. LMAO. Ok then.

    • Sean November 28, 2016

      B**** look it up on google see who’s name and face pops up

  10. Danzou November 28, 2016

    F*** hating as usual. I’m sure they’re white.

    • 4everBrandy_Ci November 28, 2016

      LMFAO!!!!! Let them stay upset! #STARZ

  11. cocobutta November 28, 2016

    Good for her I say.
    It’s really added stress and strain to her for hopefully she’s in a joyful place where her acting and music can shine over petty things.

    Long overdue ☺

  12. HUh November 28, 2016

    Praying for another great R&B classic. Brandy has a true gift.

  13. 4everBrandy_Ci November 28, 2016

    Yesssssss!!!! I’m READY for new music from the Queen herself Brandy Rayana Norwood!!!!! To these pathetic trolls disrespecting an artist that actually made an IMPACT on their favorite artists! She PAVED the way for this generation! Y’all calling Brandy a “flop”, “irrelevant”, and “has-been” but what the hell does that have to do with her fans such as myself embracing her greatness and longevity! I witnessed her GREATNESS at her concert last weekend and y’all hating m************ just have NO respect for certain artists that paved the way! I’m READY for her to return with new music!!!!!! Yesssssss Queen these hating trolls are upset!!!!! #STARZ

  14. Sara Jatu November 28, 2016

    F*** and their h*** have really ruined the music industry with their pettiness and stan wars. People no longer appreciate talent they just wanna see who can “throw the most shade”. Brandy has been in the industry for twenty plus years and is still growing as a performer and vocalist. For that alone she deserves to be commended. As for Monica, LET IT GO PEOPLE! They’re both grown women with children still booking stages. It’s not 1999. My only wish is for both ladies to release more music. The “drop an album every 4-5 years” thing is tired.

    Ready for new music !

  16. Truth tellle November 28, 2016

    Brandy fans always give off a special ed vibe ???

    • Sean November 28, 2016

      Just like your mother

  17. TheOuyonB November 28, 2016

    I love how manyl the “fans” went crazy with this announcement, saying how they are ready for new music. These mofos NOT buying her music is why she has struggled to sale commercially. She has consistently put out solid bodies of work and anyone who is a REAL fan actually knows that.

    • Brandy keeps some TGJ posters mad which is why they down vote any positive comment about her November 28, 2016

      I buy her music, and I was at her recent show in Silver Spring at the Fillmore, so speak for yourself!

    • 4everBrandy_Ci November 28, 2016

      I have ALL of her albums. I purchased every ONE of them. At least her fans that DO purchase her albums enjoy her records. Yes commercially she didn’t sell as much for “2/11” but I think she needs a NEW team and management to promote her albums. Also don’t put a lot of blame on her fans because she needs a record label to support her! That’s how she got rid of the lawsuit and moved on because she didn’t get enough promotion for “2/ll”. Regardless the fans that DO support her will always purchase her albums. I just want her to keep slaying and I think she’ll have another great album on the way. The issue is she needs a record label that will promote her! #STARZ

  18. ronnoc November 28, 2016

    I’ve never understood the hype, but whatever. I’m no hater, so congrats to her

  19. Jasmine November 28, 2016

    I don think it is fair to compare Brandy to Keshia. Brandy should have known better than to sign a bad 360 deal because she has been in the industry too long for that nonsense whereas Kesha was a new artist when she got played. I think it is time Brandy went independent and toured. This way she will make more money and not be controlled by a label.

  20. Smoove Jones November 28, 2016

    She’s not freed yet. Last week at her DC concert at the Fillmore she said she’s almost freed.

  21. Torrance November 28, 2016

    I don’t really care for the hate. Brandy is deserving of all that Soul Train Awards gives her point blank and the period. Let he/she who has lasted 20 years+ in the game speak. All yall haters make her greater. Bring that album Bran, but first B-Rocka bring that Fantasia and Jasmine Sullivan colab. Im not her for anything less.

    Good for brandy

  23. JD November 29, 2016

    I’m still confused as to why she is called the vocal bible ?, She is not in the Whitney, Celine and Mariah club. She doesn’t sound crystal clear, sounds like smoke struggle. And I like her, Full Moon is my favorite album but Monica can outing her, but I just like Brandy more than Monica, but truth be told Brandy does not sound extraterrestrial.

    • Jasmine November 29, 2016
