In conjunction with Musicalize and Google+, the good folks over at ThatGrapeJuice hosted a Google Hangout live-stream with singer-songwriter Brandy!
The actress sat before an intimate room of fans, media and fellow artists to talk about topics like her sixth studio album Two Eleven, and what it was like working with many talented producers on the compilation.
When asked about her which records she would’ve chosen as singles if she were in the shoes of music executives, she animatedly replied:
I would have definitely chosen “Do You Know.” And you know what? I wasn’t really feeling that song in the beginning. I wasn’t feeling some of songs that went on to be great for me. But when I got the fact that “Do You Know” was what it was, I was like, ‘Oh God we should’ve definiely released that one as a single.’ And then I definitely would’ve chosen “Without You.” What else? “Wish Our Love Away”…
Ms. Norwood went on to say that she is indeed working on a new, untitled album and may work with the likes of Mike Will Made-It, but would absolutely love to work with DarkChild, Timbaland and Pharrell again.
Speaking of collaborations, the engaged mother of one mentioned that she completed another song with her fellow “Put It Down” singer, Chris Brown. She also shared what it was like working with Jessie J on their newest collaboration, “Conquer the World.”
When I met Jessie, we were a part of the Clive Davis party one year. We were supposed to sing together and it didn’t get a chance to happen. But she always expressed love for me, and always just shown that kindness towards me. And she said she loved my voice, and she came across this song that was for her album and she asked me to be a part of it. And I was like, ‘Oh my God! Oh my God!’ Because she’s amazing. Her voice is like…Jessie J you gotta practice when you sing with her. Definitely.
Peep her full interview up top, where she talks about planning a new tour and something for television, starting a family as well as her wish to record a gospel album in the future! (Note: Interview starts at the 33:25 mark)
