Brandy Announces Album Title, Sets June Release

Brandy

After keeping her fans waiting, Brandy has revealed the title and release month for her RCA/Chameleon Records debut.

She made the announcement during her live show at Factory in West Hollywood on Friday night, later tweeting it out to her followers. “Two Eleven – June 2012,” she wrote.

The title represents the month and date of her birthday, February 11. It also happens to be the day her mentor and friend Whitney Houston passed away. She dedicated her 2008 single “Right Here (Departed)” to her during last night’s performance.

The follow-up to 2008’s Human features the single “It All Belongs to Me,” her Rico Love-produced duet with Monica, along with contributions from Sean Garrett, Chris Brown, Bangladesh, Frank Ocean, Hit-Boy, and more.

“It’s just gonna be a different album, but of course expressing the love that I feel now and the struggles and different situations that I’ve gone through in the past,” Brandy told Rap-Up TV. “My music always tends to be the soundtrack to my life and definitely inspired by what I see other people go through as well—gritty, edgy, different.”

Her collaborator Sean Garrett added, “It’s gonna show the evolution of Brandy, the fact that she’s very, very current. Her harmonies and vocal abilities are still unmatched and there’s still a lot of integrity in her records.”

Nicki is becoming a sellout doin all that pop i used to be a fan but that was back when she waa doing real rap. Brandy album gonna do good especially with the r&b fans.

This is why I love Rap-Up, because they give us a wide range of all types of music. This isn’t a Nicki Minaj fansite. Go away little kids!

    I’m just going to bypass all the negativity. I love Brandy and cannot wait for this album. Whether it’s a commercial success or not, you know B-Rocka is going to give it her all. Throughout her career she has provided soulful music that has struck a chord with me – whatever mood I am in there is a Brandy song for it. Keep doing your thing Bran.

    Two Eleven – will be the album, which brings Brandy full-circle. I hate to compare but like Emancipation of Mimi to Mariah. We can’t call them comebacks, because they never went ANYWHERE. In a world filled with auto tune, psychos, and carbon copies. We need originality is needed in contemporary music.

    damn that chick Brandy had two songs i’d liked back in 02 What About Us, And Full Moon,scratch that i liked The Boy Is Mine too! But other than that her other stuff is too dull and dated! I hope Bangladesh, Sean Garrett, and Hitboy give some hot urban club bangers!(the current ones played now, not some dated ish!) This chick is so 90′s no-one is checking for her! You know Nicki will snatch them wigs again! I have to hear other songs ( Aka better be some bangers,no dated r&b 90′s sooul ish)to decide if i may purchase this! cause all her albums have way too many slow songs and very few upbeat ones! I doubt this album will be a success , unless she really brings it hard!

    SdotB Reply:

    @kevin, u must’ve never owned a brandy album b/c all of them are filled mainly with uptempo tracks…brandy is known for having current, edgy bangers. If u call her music dated and too “R&b 90s soul-ish”, then what do u have to say about Trey songs, Melanie Fiona, Estelle, Mary j, monica, or any other r&b artist in the game? I honestly don’t know many other artists who put as much effort, creativity, and thought into their music as brandy does.

Everyone knows since Brandy’s first album, she has always said Whit was her mentor and the reason she sings, she even had interludes dedicated to Whitney on that album, so its fitting to dedicate this album to her.

    Yall keep believing Brandy don’t have nothing to do with Whitney death. She was on Koch and had no ties to Clive Davis and all of the sudden she’s all over him and her and Monica got a deal with RCA. I smell something very fishy here.
