Brandy Talks About Her New Music

Since releasing her debut album in 1994 at the age of 15, Brandy Norwood has built an astonishingly successful career in the worlds of music and TV. Her back catalog has collectively sold over 10 million copies in the U.S., thanks to ubiquitious hits like 1998’s “The Boy Is Mine” and 2002’s “What About Us?,” and her smash TV series “Moesha” ran for six seasons in the late ’90s and early ’00s. Brandy’s impact on music can be heard in everyone from Rihanna to Miguel to Frank Ocean. (Ocean even worked with Brandy on 2012’s Two Eleven, her most recent album.) Since the release of Two Eleven, Brandy has remained in the spotlight with a lead role in last year’s Broadway production of Chicago, and a highly entertaining social media presence. Brandy kicked off 2016 with a new BET sitcom, “Zoe Ever After,” and a bluesy, stellar comeback single, “Beggin & Pleadin.” Brimming with some of the flintiest, most expressive vocals of her career, “Beggin” is something we’ve never heard from Brandy before, a swaggering kiss-off filtered through the experience of a recent, highly-publicized breakup.
