Brandy & Ray J Team Up

Superstar siblings Brandy and Ray J Norwood are set to premiere a new VH1 reality series “Brandy and Ray J: A Family Business” about the duo taking over the family empire. Viewers will get a first hand glimpse into the lives of the Norwood family unit and their family business Rn’B Productions. Run by the siblings mother Sonja, Rn’B Productions features a lineup of musical artists including Brandy, Ray J and their father Willie. But with Sonja ready to take a step down, Brandy and Ray J will have to fill her shoes quickly all the while taking the family business to the next level.
“The Norwood’s are an incredibly talented family who truly love each other and I think our viewers will relate to that,” said Jeff Olde, Executive Vice President, Original Programming and Production, VH1. “They are also a family in business together in a rapidly evolving industry, which offers a whole other level of complexity in their relationships. I was struck not only by their bond and honesty with each other, but also by their ability to put family first amidst all the rewards and struggles their industry can provide.”

In their new 11, one-hour episode series, both Brandy and Ray J will expand their roles in the family business. Brandy will step back into the music scene and team up with famous producer Timbaland for a new album all the while raising her seven year-old daughter Sy’rai. We’ll also see Ray J stepping out of his notorious bad boy image and collaborating with Rodney Jerkins and other popular R&B heavyweights. Father Willie will continue to sing and coach his famous children while being the original voice of reason. And the matriarch of the family, Sonja, will strive to keep her famous family on the right track, while passing the family business down to her two superstar children.

  1. Just read this on concrete loop. Oh boy! I’m guessing I’m just really getting tired of all these reality shows! I say let’s all team up on here for a reality show called Brown Sista: get into cat fights, showcase how much money we have, the cars we drive, how we raise our kids, where we work, how we “run the city”… I can keep going. What do you guys say? Think they’d buy it? LOL.

  2. Now that is a reality show I would wat TOY.

    As for this new venture with the enitire Norwood, I will not be watching. It does not sound interesting and neither Brandy nor her brother has a career really worth mentioning at the moment.

  3. I hate reality shows but I would definately watch this. I LOVE Brandy!!!!

  4. I’ll watch to see what its like. just to show some support, cause I love Brandy.
