Though hot on the promo trail in support of her hit ABC series, ‘Queens,’ R&B veteran Brandy isn’t being coy about how recording tunes for the musical drama has reignited her engine to return to the studio for her own music.
As her faithful fans, affectionately called #Starz, await official release news on her highly anticipated duet with Mariah Carey (as we reported here), B-Rocka – after promising ‘no eight-year wait’ between her recordings – is ensuring they keep her solo endeavors on their radar as well.
Shortly after taking to press to indicate she will be experimenting with new sounds on the yet-titled project, she visited ‘Kelly & Ryan’ to not only reiterate but also share news that she’s recording new music this year.
While visiting ‘Kelly & Ryan’ recently, the 42-year-old dished on plans to get to work on the follow-up of her 2020 album, ‘B7.’
“I’m so excited about music this year,” she started (as seen in the video above). “I get to do music again and do it the way I would love to do it – which is not just stick to one genre, [but] venture out and see what other kind of music I would love to do.”
After listing AfroBeats, Country, and Hip Hop as a few of the genres she may toy with on the forthcoming LP, Brandy indicated her willingness to experiment comes from years of labels limiting her creative freedom.
“When I first started you didn’t know who you are as an artist you do need direction you do need guidance,” she said before later continuing, “but I have a sense of what I want to do and how I want to do it now that I’m [a lot] more seasoned than when I first started.”

As of time reported, the GRAMMY-winning diva has not specified a release window for new LP.
