Brandy ‘Puts It Down’ with Chris Brown on New Single

Brandy and Chris Brown

Brandy is coming back with a banger. After reuniting with Monica on their duet “It All Belongs to Me,” the R&B singer has enlisted Chris Brown for the first single off her upcoming album.

“Put It Down,” which will appear on Brandy’s RCA/Chameleon Records debut Two Eleven, is set to premiere this month. Breezy raps on the song, which was produced by Bangladesh and written by Sean Garrett.

“It’s uptempo, it’s really different,” Brandy told True Exclusives, while also sharing her experience in the studio with the “Deuces” singer.

“The session was amazing,” she said. “I just think his artist Se7en is so talented and she gets me and Chris gets me. To work with people that love you and love your craft and what you do, I think it makes the song even better and the experience even better.”

Garrett previously spoke to Rap-Up.com about the track. “It’s definitely something you have never heard—you probably haven’t heard Brandy over a track like this,” he said. “It’s very commercial, but at the same time, it’s got a dope hip-hop influence—it’s club, it’s radio, it’s all formats.”

Brandy, who will be featured on VH1’s “Behind the Music” on April 25, has been in the studio with Frank Ocean and Hit-Boy, among others. Two Eleven is due this summer.

    @The_Navy, rih and bey have a daughter together? that’s news to me. And if you were watching properly, Brandy is gracing not sitting while promoting her album. She also has plenty of movies and t.v shows that are in auto-promotion mode so hush, hush.

    @missdiva, Aren’t you a monica stan/fan? You have some nerve trying to be shady, especially now. You NEED to be worried about her album being in danger of flopping HARD, and she’s in desperate need of a hit. Keep it REALLY light on Brandy.

  3. ughreally

    Very excited to hear her new project. Wished Chris was singing instead of rapping because his vocals are really overtly inspired by hers.
    Perfect choice to work with Chris though, they are fans of each other and artistic.

    This is 2012. not the 90′s. Brandy is taking all the right steps to get her career back on track doing what’s necessary and current in today’s market. I ain’t mad at her.

    Seems to me brandy isn’t comfortable trying to do anything on her own… As a fan it would be nice to just hear her this song… And her on a club, up beat. No, please give me full moon slightly modernized

    did i miss something or what? She never said the first single features chris brown. Looks like they were referring to a different song for chris brown.. The first single may feature Drake?? He sings too right?

    B'RockaBaby Reply:

    @lala, finally someone with sense. Who the HELL officially said that the single is featuring CB. It could well be Drake or even Andre 3000 as both artist have been current lately and both sing and rap.

  16. Kyle

    Interesting…I’m eager to hear it! I love Brandy and I wish her nothing but the best. “Afrodisiac” is probably my favorite album by her!

    [Reply]

  17. KNUCK

    Firstly – It’s not going to be a “dance” song.. It’s hip-hop influenced, as is her album.

    Secondly – Brandy can release an uptempo and still shine. Some of her singles has been uptempo and her albums are full of them. If you want more of the same, you have monica’s New Life. and that’s no shade, but she sticks with her formula.

    Drake has possibly written a song for this album and she spoke about it in another interview. I’m not 100% sure she recorded, but she really couldn’t wait to record it. She has already worked with Kanye on Afrodisiac and also on Kanye’s album Late Registration, but I think we would all like to see them work together again.

    But it looks like for now, we have Chris Brown on the single in some capacity and we just have to wait to hear it. It’s going to slay.

    @KNUCK, Yes, get these hoes together. They don’t know what they’re talking about when it comes to Bran, clearly! They ain’t checkin’ for ha… But they will soon! Ohh, I hope she shits so hard on the industry and burns up the charts starting with this single! I cannot wait!!

    No it’s NOT another pop/dance trend.
    Since when has Bang/Brandy/Sean ever done a dance song?
    It’s Urban/Hip Hop
    Chris will be rapping
    it apparently is in the vein of Mario’s “Break Up”

    I can’t wait!!!!!!!!

  24. lolz

    Why didn’t they just duet? Chris Brown’s rapping sucks, it’s gonna ruin the song. I can give ya’ll a preview of his verse “Booty, booty, dick, dick, nigga I got money”. Yep that pretty much sums it up. I’m here for his singing. Nothing else.

    [Reply]

  25. Wrap

    Oh please not here for Chris’s crappy rapping. They should’ve just picked a good song to duet on. Chris should stick to singing. Every rap he does ruins a potentially good song.

    Oh my God!!!! Yes! Yes! Yes! Ok. Now I really can’t wait! I can say right now that Brandy’s album will probably be my favorite of the year. I just know it. I SO can’t wait to hear Chris and Brandy on the same track! Two of my favorite artist of all time. I remember when I first bought CB debut CD I said he should do some music with Brandy. It’s just something about the way he sings and his vocal placements that I knew he would get her. And I am truly pumped to hear what she andnFrank Ocean have done seriously. Brandy and Chris! I can’t believe it. Maaaan, I can’t wait!!!!! :)

    Yes! Finally, I can’t wait to hear Brandy’s “OFFICIAL” return ‘single’! The Starz have been waiting forever!!!!! & Featuring Chris Brown O.KKKKKKKK Bran I c u , I honestly thought it was going to feature Nicki Minaj, but it’s all good becauze Chris is the hottest male R&B artist out right now despite whether he’s rapping or not he’s “GREAT” at that to in my opinion!

    [Reply]

  31. KiKi

    I’m confused, no where does she say the first single features Chris Brown. She says the first single is titled “Put it Down” and features a rapper/singer/ Then the interviewer moves on to the next question about Chris Brown saying she is the best female singer and their work together. I was thinking Drake too… Can we please get a source on this,because from the interview there looks to be some misunderstanding.

    [Reply]

    Warren Reply:

    @KiKi, someone from twitter was the one who revealed the tea. He was at a label meeting.

    So that’s how all started, even Silent confirmed it saying “it wasnt supposed to be revealed yet”…. and he decided to post this snippet before his plan.

    its funny how beyonce tends to come up whenever something about brandy comes up or something. but Brandy and Chris? WACK!!! i dont think itll be hot, brandy is better solo and putter nothin but ‘auto-tune’ featured on her track will be just trash. Brandy, be original and come solo. Chris aint gone do nothin but cause you to get beat like poor Rih-Rih lol
    I love Brandy but for her first single to be with Chris, its not a hit, just a sample of her future to be a ‘one-hit-wonder’ like the song with Monica and her, nothin but a sample single with no exposure…#smh

    Why does it always have to be about competition with other females in the game? I’m so tired of it, heck even Brandy herself spoke on it. They each have their own lane, while they may cross paths at times, they are talented in their own right! Support and love em or dislike them and live your life…cause guess what, THEY ARE!

    As for the single I’m glad to have some new Brandy music. Not 100% sold on Chris rapping but let’s at least wait till we hear the song before we pass judgement. WOW people…

    EnormousHeart87 Reply:

    @Manofvalour, You are absolutely correct! I used to be one of those types that used to compare artist with Bey well mainly just Rihanna because of her fans but I stopped all of that last year because it’s pointless. I don’t understand why people are always comparing an artist with another artist. Beyonce is always compared to every artist in the music industry and it’s ridiculous. This is a post about Brandy and their bringing up Beyonce’s name. I’m a huge BeyStan but I respect other artists music. I love Brandy’s music and hell basically music from the 80s-early 2000s. I don’t even listen to the music anymore and all people do nowadays is judge someone.

    [Reply]

  42. EnormousHeart87

    @tye, Why are you even bringing up Beyonce’s name? And for the record, Bey hasn’t even been performing she’s spending time with her family. Are you that threatened by her or something? I love Brandy too and I’m excited about her new album but don’t try to bring other artists down to make another artist look good. Brandy loves Beyonce and she’s a BeyFan and you should respect that.

    Some of you are so DUMB, it’s sickening. Doesn’t Chris have multiple songs on the Hot 100 or the R&B/Hip Hop charts? Let’s face it, he’s BLOWING up out there. Brandy came solo last era and did pretty good, but putting her on a single by herself is too risky at this point. She’s been gone for too long, and she needs some help to get people interested in her music.

    I’m sick of you Debbie Downers doubting and dissing this already! You all haven’t even heard anything, wait for it to come out! I can’t stand you all trying to judge the album before it even comes out. She tried to give you ungrateful non-supportive people a lyric with substance, a positive inspirational theme, and great lyrical content with 2008′s HUMAN, but no one was there to support it.

    Brandy is blessing us with NEW music, and I’m welcoming it with open arms cause she has the big 4 year gaps between a lot of her albums. That’s not gonna fly. So stop being so negative making it hard for Brandy to do her. Just let her do her, and mind your own business and support or do whatever you need to do as long as it ain’t negative.

    I still don’t understand why everyone thinks it’s CB. No one has officially said it’s CB. It can easily be Drake or even Andre 3000. What i do love is that she’s building hype and conversation regardless of who she’s featuring. A part of me hopes it’s not CB, so we can shock everyone. Either, everyone who’s heard the single including Monica has testified it’s a for sure hit. Stop hating and give Brandy props my gosh, 2013 will make 20 years the girl been in the industry. She’s made her mark and is still trucking. let her shine in her element. She is the Queen of Progressive R&B.

  50. T

    People are saying its Chris because a radio personality who heard the track already confirmed via twitter that he’s the feature. He also said that Chris is rapping on it, not singing. It’s an urban track not a dance track, and he said that it’s very different. He also said it has cross-over potential.
