Brandy Teases “Surprise Collaborations” On New Album: “It’s Not The Typical Regular R&B Brandy Album”

Posted November 17, 2022

Brandy fans had to wait 8 long years for the release of her highly-anticipated 7th album, ‘B7’ which arrived in 2020. It was the follow-up to 2012’s ‘Two Eleven’ and fans were over the moon to finally have new music.

Now, almost 2 years removed from ‘B7,’ the R&B vocal bible promised fans that they would not have to wait so painfully long ever again for new music.

As promised, the singer recently revealed that she is working on her 8th studio album due next year, via Motown Records who she recently inked a shiny new deal as we previously confirmed.

Now, in her first interview since her recent health scare, the singer is revealing more exclusive details with ET and teasing fans with what is to come from the forthcoming project which she says isn’t the typical Brandy R&B album.

E! News: Tell us about your new album!
Brandy: Fans are going to be shocked to know what I have up my sleeve. It’s not the typical regular R&B Brandy album, I’ll just say that. 

E!: You recently signed with Motown Records. How does it feel to be working with such an iconic company?
B: It’s the label that you always wanted to be signed to and wanted to feel that magic. So to get the opportunity to be with [CEO] Ethiopia [Habtemariam] and the Motown family is amazing. 

E!: You recently collaborated with Mariah Carey on “The Roof (When I Feel The Need)”, what was that like? 
B: I mean, she’s Mariah Carey. I was blown away the entire time I was with her. And I learned a lot from her and just how patient she is in the studio. I love that, I’m going to take that with me, because I need a lot of patience in the studio, a lot!

E!: Who would you want to work with next?
B: So many people! And that’s kind of the surprise, so I can’t really get in too deep. 

E!: Your Moesha costar Sheryl Lee Ralph just won her first Emmy!
B: I know! I was so happy for her and to see her accept her award and the way she accepted it, it was monumental. It just gives me so much hope for the future, for her and myself. 

E!: As recent events have placed a renewed interest on health, what lifestyle changes are you making?

B: I just think everybody should take care of themselves. Eat right. Drink water. Exercise. You know, keep your mind as positive as possible!
