Mark your calendars. Brandy has finally set a release date for her sixth album Two Eleven.
The follow-up to 2008’s Human will arrive on August 28 via RCA/Chameleon Records, Brandy announced via Twitter. The title represents the month and date of her birthday, February 11. It is also the day her mentor and friend Whitney Houston passed away.
The album features the Chris Brown-assisted single “Put It Down” and “It All Belongs to Me,” her duet with Monica, along with contributions from Bangladesh, Frank Ocean, Rico Love, Sean Garrett, 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,” the 33-year-old singer 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.”
While Brandy has remained tight-lipped on details, Garrett revealed a drum-heavy record he did with Bangladesh called “Sick.” “I feel like a lot of women are gonna love that record,” teased the hitmaker, who contributed nine tracks to the album.
