Fan favorite Brandy released her official first single last week, “Right Here (Departed),” (click here to listen) produced by long time friend and collaborator, Rodney “Darkchild” Jerkins. And after the single dropped, it seems as though a slew of new information about Brandy’s new album, now officially titled Human has surfaced. The album also has an official release date of November 11th, and her single will officially impact radio September 16th, although it’s already getting spins all over the country.
Brandy also sat down to talk about the album. Here’s what she had to say:
“Human is my most personal album to date. I have grown so much since my last album. Being able to express myself and my journey through my music is a feeling I can’t describe. With this new chapter of my life it feels good to have Rodney, a familiar face, by my side again. He brings out emotions in me like nobody else.”
In addition to speaking about the album, some information about producers, writers and song titles has also surface. Brandy worked with British pop singer/songwriter Natasha Bedingfield, as well as other new songs such as “Long Distance,” “Torn Down” and “Piano Man.” On her fifth studio album, Brandy has also worked with Brian Kennedy, who was responsible for producing Rihanna’s fourth #1 single, “Disturbia,” RedOne, James Fauntleroy (producer of Jordin Sparks’s “No Air”), as well as The Clutch.
SEAN KINGSTON PREPS SECOND ALBUM
Jamaican-American singer/rapper Sean Kingston is on the way of releasing his sophomore effort. In a video blog, Sean Kingston says that he has just recorded four new songs which will later appear on his upcoming second set.
Kingston refuses to give further information about the release date of his upcoming album and his new singles. He just said that the singles that he is working on are handled by Atlanta-based producer Polow Da Don.
PCD ALBUM DELAYED
The popular girl group the Pussycat Dolls seem to be the latest to suffer an album push-back. Doll Domination, originally slated for September 16th release, has been moved back a week, now dropping on September 23rd. What is with all these albums being pushed back?
I’m think that these labels just need more time to rush out new singles and videos to draw more interest to the project. It seemed as if the Darkchild-produced “When I Grow Up” was doing well with all of the performances and video play, but has since died out. Now the Dolls need a little something more to light the fire into the interest of the project again.
