New Music: Brandy – ‘Magic’ (Coldplay Cover)

Brandy

Brandy comes through with a cover of Coldplay’s “Magic” for your Sunday listening pleasure. The R&B songstress effortlessly remakes Chris Martin and his band’s hit single off their album Ghost Stories, and the results are, well, magical.

Brandy has been working on the follow-up to her 2012 album Two Eleven and has teased a summer release.

Just last week, she surprised Keke Palmer with a visit to her BET talk show “Just Keke.”

Hear Brandy put it down below.

    Before the haters come flocking… It’s just a COVER FOR THE FANS… We have been desperately missing her voice.

    Now that that’s covered, Brandy b**** you SLAYED this cover. I can’t wait to hear this new project. I hope Brandy continues to delve into different sounds. Her voice can do basically anything. Also hope that we get a dope club banger with a rapper before the summer ends

    You people gas Brandy’s vocals up sooo much. Stop calling her the vocal bible. NO ONE of credibility gave her that title but her fans & her brother Ray-J. Y’all gotta stop.

    @Nick, Regardless of if that’s true or not, that has what to do with vocal ability and talent?!? Nothing at all honey.

    [Reply]

    Nick Reply:

    @Whitney, You got me there, most talented vocalists can’t even sell albums these days. The D list thing is not an insult, it’s just to say they are past their prime whether it’s an age factor or the current music climate.

    @JFV, You might want to youtube “vocal bible” & see what pops up for you. Cause it’s not just fans giving brandy vocal praise. Its actually alot of credible people.

    @JFV, producers and writers, as well as artists called her the “vocal bible”. fans just caught on. don’t be mad.

    @face, Mad? Nobody’s mad. You are pathetic if you think Moesha comes anywhere near Whitney/Mariah/Celine among others. She sings alright, but let’s not show our inner stan. It’s quite embarrassing.

    @JFV, you’re an idiot. Even if her vocals are “hyped up” why should that make YOU mad? don’t worry about who’s hyping who, just worry about how you’re gonna pay your month’s rent with your broke ass

    STAR Reply:

    @JFV, why did you come to her page to spew hate if she’s so irrelevant and not a legend to you? This woman sang with the greatest of all time, Whitney Houston. Do you think Whitney would just share a duet with anybody??? You’re dellusional. This woman is praised by manyy artists and producers and writers. Did you not see how many people praised her for 20 years of being in the business? If not, do your research and YouTube it. Just because she’s not your taste doesn’t mean she’s not legendary. Get a hobby Bc hating doesn’t look good o you.

    the cover is amazing. much better quality wise than the original. so haunting.

    The title “vocal bible” was actually coined by songwriter (and signee to John Legend’s label) Stacy Barthe. Stans and fans only started to use it afterwards. And Brandy is one of the most praised and revered artists of this generation, crossing all genres, from R&B to Pop to Gospel to Rock. She’s respected by musicians from all walks. Do your research and you’ll see that she goes far beyond internet stans.

    And this cover is stellar. Excellent work Ms. Norwood.

    @Effetz, Fucking thank you! The haters think that’s something that started with the fans. The industry insiders know the real deal when it comes to Brandy!

    @Effetz, Fucking thank you! These hating ass hoes are in here mad at Brandy because they’re favorite singers don’t have the same credentials she has. Always insecure hating ass hoes hating on people with legitimate, God-given talent.

    Like, fall the fuck back. Brandy doesn’t make music for people like that. Let her have her own crown, dammit!

    @Nick, Fucking troll gtfo. While u stay hating on blogs Brandy continues to earn money, respect and praise from the music industry. Everyone with musical ears understands what an incredible vocalist she is, clearly you do not. I feel sorry for you. God bless!

    [Reply]

    Nick Reply:

    @Yohan, So, a troll is someone who doesn’t agree with you? You gtfo. I never said I was a hater, I like some of her singles. Just because I feel her voice is limited? And?
    Janet Jackson among others have had huge careers with limited range. This is Rap-Up, not the Brandy shrine. All of us have opinions, let’s leave it at that. Stop being so defensive. Brandy does not know you.

    @Nick, no actually. She’s been staring in ‘The Game’ and winning NAACP awards. Stop the hate, monica.

    i’m completely here for that cover. she should link up with Mustard to get a good hood anthem on the next album but i’d love to hear more alternative r&b too.

    Deejay Reply:

    @white chocolate, Just……….NO!!! We don’t need another “bussin on the beat hoe” song on the radio. All that shit sounds exactly the same. That’s what’s wrong with u people. You want all music to sound like a carbon copy. Brandy can do a lot better than DJ Mustards repetitive ass recycled beats.

    SdotB Reply:

    @Deejay, THANK YOU!! I say the same thing to myself everytime i hear one of his repetitive azz beats on the radio…same tempo, same melody, same instruments, no diversity at all whatsoever…i hate this generation of music, everyone wants everything to sound the exact same…music has no uniqueness or authenticity anymore…

  17. Ashton

    Am I the only one that thought this wasn’t very good?
    1. Regardless of technique or range, I think Brandy’s voice is obnoxious and it sounds like she doesn’t even form words, like I know everyone has accents or whatever but her diction is terrible. Same with Sia

    [Reply]

    Patboy Reply:

    @Ashton, Huh? Brandy’s voice, even if its not your taste, is far from “obnoxious”. Do you know how to use that word? And how can you even start an argument about someones voice by saying “regardless of technique or range” as if those things don’t often supersede actual vocal tone. Do you even know what the word diction means? You’re using it in place of the words pronunciation or enunciation. Diction ones actual choice of words not how one says them. Its no wonder your didn’t like the cover. From where i’m standing, you hardly have a grasp on the english language.

    Brandy sounded good. I love how soothing and smooth her voice move and flow. I wouldn’t mind a duet with Coldplay and her! Who know, they can asked her to perform MAGIC with them one day.. Her harmonies stack and melodic tones isn’t to be played with..
