Brandy Talks Experimental Next Album, Says Recording with Mariah Carey Was a ‘Dream Come True’

Published: Friday 7th Jan 2022 by Rashad

From Bill Withers‘ classic ‘Ain’t No Sunshine’ to Miley Cyrus‘Wrecking Ball,’ R&B veteran Brandy has been turning heads with stunning covers of some of music’s most beloved hits aboard ABC’s breakout hit series, ‘Queens.’

But if her fans think the musical drama is keeping her away from her own music, she’s going on record to reassure them such isn’t the case.

“It’s not going to be no eight-year wait next time,” B-Rocka recently told our friends at ‘Rated R&B’ in reference to the nearly decade-long space between her sixth studio album, ‘Two Eleven’ (2012), and its follow-up ‘B7’ (2020).

Already teasing the 2020 LP’s successor, the GRAMMY winner has revealed being part of the ABC musical drama has only inspired her to head into the studio for her own project.

“All the music I’ve done on ‘Queens,’ being able to do music in the studio consistently, it’s inspired me to want to get back, right after ‘Queens,’ to do my own music,” she said.

What’s more, the diva – after experimenting with AfroBeats as assistant on Tiwa Savage‘s 2021 hit ‘Somebody’s Son’ – shared she’s already begun conceptualizing the sounds that will line her forthcoming opus.

“I want to try different things with my music this next go-round, not just stick to R&B,” she shared. “I’m not just R&B, it’s more in my core. I want to bring it all out.”

But, before her fans (affectionately called #Starz) get too excited about what’s to be found on her yet-titled, next studio album, they’ll likely be greeted by her long-awaited duet with Mariah Carey.

Not long after Carey took to press to confirm the once-rumored collaboration (as we reported here), Brandy beamed about the song’s recording process.

“When I was in the booth, doing whatever she wanted me to do, it was just beautiful to be coached by her,” she relayed. “…this is one of my favorite singers — top two: Whitney [Houston] and then it’s Mariah. I loved working with her. That was a dream come true.”

As of time reported, the tune’s release date has not been published.  Click here to read Brandy’s interview in full.

      Now see how the jokes write themselves. One could be messy and say where’s Trenches because atleast Brandy kept her promise to her fans by giving them B7 and technically still delivering music on her show….where’s Monica continues to do IG photoshoots and obviously paying you especially dust whilst seemingly awaiting on C Murda release from jail. ☕️

      I mean she’s a millionaire had a very successful career.
      And you’re on a computer writing flop from your Mums basement.
      I’d love to flop the way she has.

        Amen people so quick to called out people names but they have nothing going on with their life, brandy is an icon, legendary and still doing it in her 40’s 90 percent of their favorite still don’t have the same career that brandy already complain in her early 20s
