Brandy To Be Honored at 2019 BMI R&B/Hip-Hop Awards

Published: Wednesday 31st Jul 2019 by Rashad

With over 40 million records sold, multiple chart-topping hits, and a respect from fellow musicians that echoes across genres, singer/songwriter Brandy had made an indelible mark on the music industry.

As such, it’s only fitting the R&B diva be the recipient of the BMI President’s Award at its 2019 R&B/Hip-Hop Award ceremony.

Details inside:

“As a singer/songwriter, actress and humanitarian, Brandy is a triple threat in every sense of the word,” said Catherine Brewton, BMI Vice President Creative (Atlanta). “Her timeless hits about love and heartbreak were anthems to many coming of age during the 90s and secured her place in R&B history. We are so excited to honor Brandy with the BMI President’s Award and look forward to celebrating a night of great music.”

The BMI President’s Award is presented to an individual songwriter, composer or producer who has made exemplary contributions to the art of music and songwriting and profoundly influenced the entertainment industry.  Past honorees include Curtis Mayfield, Toni Braxton and and more.

Brandy – who already has over 100 industry awards to her credit – will be on hand on August 29th to add this latest accolade to her collection.

Here’s hoping the event is just one of many appearances we can expect from the 40-year-old as she reportedly readies the rollout of new music from her forthcoming album, due later this year.

    Awesome! Well deserved I love Brandy’s catalog! Chance the Rapper should release “Ballin Flossin” as his next single and invite Brandy to be in the video. He sampled “I wanna be down” and the song is a bop! But it would be nice to see Brandy in the spotlight again. She’s such a talent!

      Time for a new Brandy album. It’s been so long since her last album!

  2. MUSICHEAD July 31, 2019

    Go Brandy! Not to mention, Love Again is #11 at Urban AC and #36 at Urban radio. She has another hit on her hands.

    No ones checking for this schizo flop

  7. Brandy’s star July 31, 2019

    Monica fans be so pressed i can’t stand they raggedy asses. Brandy deserves this and everyone knows it. Y’all always saying flop this and that, but Brandy’s new single is doing well on the charts. Monica- commitment may be number 1 but she only charged on two charts. Brandy’s single is on 4 diff charts right now

    • d Richards July 31, 2019

      Ok, petty. It ain’t a hit till it’s #1 on any of those charts. Daniel whoever’s racist ass is marked off btw. And I’d like Monica to tribute Brandy to kill the bs comparisons. Monica has posted recently that her jam is Have you Ever. They give props to each other here and there

      • Mr RCW August 1, 2019

        Monica always give props! Brandy throws shade…that’s Daniels song 🤷🏽‍♂️

  8. Kim,Keisha&Pam July 31, 2019

    No hate, but Brandy is just extremely overrated to me. Congrats tho.

  9. Jeans August 1, 2019

    Well deserved Brandy! You deserve it!

  10. Truth August 1, 2019

    Why??? She haven’t released anything in ages. She too busy watching Monica’s Instagram post.

  11. brittney August 1, 2019

    She will never be Monica

    • Pigeons be hating August 2, 2019

      Yeah because brandy career——> monikka

    Congratulations Brandy! It’s hard to believe she’s at a stage in her life where she’ll probably be (hopefully) honored at music award shows. I still feel like there’s so mucb more for her to do! Especially still being very young. She’s definitely paved a way for MANY! I also think they should start having this show televised. I remember when Janet was honored by them, I saw clips by people who uploaded the visuals by not something that was officially televised.

  13. JustLeezy August 1, 2019

    This is all God’s doing. I am happy for Brandy this is truly an honor and well deserved.

  14. KeAUnna August 1, 2019

    So well deserved. BROCKA is her MF name.

  15. PinotNoir August 1, 2019

    ’bout damn time! Love B-Rocka.

  16. 8 Stars August 1, 2019

    I would love to see Ternicka and Monica pay tribute to Brandy
