The Empress of R&B returns

After a nearly 9 years the industry icon is returning with a new studio album. After releasing a Mother’s Day anthem titled ” Baby Mama” alongside rising star and legend in the making Chance the Rapper she debuted the album cover on Good Morning America. This is Brandy’s seventh studio album which lead her to title the project “B7”.

In the midst of her long awaiting return social media lit up once again with another resurrection of the “The Boy is Mine” battle. Fans of both Monica and Brandy can’t enough of comparing the two. It didn’t help that the new IG show “VERZUZ” is setting the music world on fire. It was only a matter of time before there were calls to see the two got head to head. Despite this historic comparison she is moving forward with her new music and seems like we are on our way after 8 years to new music from the often titled Vocal Bible.
