Brandy Signs New Deal, Eyes 2012 Release

August 26, 2011

Remember the 90’s? Arguably the greatest music decade of the past century. (Since I’m an 80’s baby its hard for me to argue for any decade before then anyway.) Nonetheless, Brandy Norwood’s stamp was left all over the 90’s with hit singles like, “I Wanna Be Down,” “Baby,” “Have You Ever?” and of course the everlasting classic “The Boy Is Mine” with Monica. Brandy broke onto the scene in 1994 with her self-titled album Brandy and promptly sold over 4 million copies.

Although Brandy is one of the top-selling female artist of all time, she has found it hard to reach the same level of success she saw during the 90’s. Her biggest accomplishments of late have been her on-screen appearances with a successful run on ABC’s “Dancing With the Stars” competition and her reality series Brandy and Ray J: A Family Business.

After Brandy’s 2008 release Human failed to live up to her fans expectations, Brandy sought out change. She cut ties with her then management company, Roc Nation. She also severed ties with producer Rodney “Darkchild” Jerkins, who executive produced and co-wrote the disappointing album Human. And now it seems Norwood has completed her transformation in preparation for an early 2012 release.

A few days ago word got out that Brandy signed a joint deal with RCA Records and producer Breyon Prescott’s Chameleon Records to facilitate her sixth album. Brandy says that the album will feature her getting back to her R&B roots with a new school feel. According to reports producer Bangladesh will handle most of the work behind the boards. The 90’s are back in full effect everywhere you look, so I don’t think it’ll be hard for people to get down with that.
