Brandy is featured in this month's YRB Magazine looking all types of lovely! The incredibly talented singer, songwriter, & actress dishes on her new album Two-Eleven & where she is mentally, as well as musically.
On Starting Anew...
“I think a lot of the struggles I’ve had are what I needed to go through to get to another place,” “Everything is pretty sudden. One day I just woke up and I changed my mind about everything. I felt like I wasn’t fulfilled. I was acting simultaneously with singing as a kid, and I just felt like I have this talent, why am I not using it?
On Creating Her Album. . .“Sometimes, you can get caught up in wanting to make hits and wanting to get on the radio and performing on everything that’s out there. I just wanted to stay true to who I was. That’s why it’s taken me so long to figure out the right home for me to put my music out there with. Other than that, I wanted my album to represent honesty and clarity and struggle and pain, as well as love, with a different sound and a different edge. That’s what this album is.
On What Sound We Can Expect . . .“It’s definitely R&B, but it has the crossover appeal. It’s grittier, it’s edgier, it’s just different type of R&B. It’s not your regular smooth, soft with the beat type music,” she describes. “It’s just taking risks and hearing how I sound over different types of music, and I wanted an album that different people can listen to. Not just R&B, but pop and hip-hop. I wanted everyone to have something that they can listen to on this album.”
**Visit yrb for the full cut. I'm excited about Brandy's comeback. Its longgg overdue. It seems as if she is truly rebranding herself. Between her love-able Chardonnay character on Bet's The Game, & photos like this, it seems like she's on the right track . . .
