R n’ B singer Brandy seems to be keeping a low profile these days. The singer’s fifth studio album, Human, was released late last year and got rave reviews- garnering 4 out of 5 stars from Billboard Magazine. Great reviews however did not lead to great sales and thus the singer’s album and both her singles, Right Here (Departed) and Long Distance, have struggled on the charts. Like other R n’ B divas of the late 90’s, Brandy finds herself struggling to find her place in a musical landscape now dominated by a new generation of female singers.
Brandy, Monica and Toni Braxton once dominated the R n’ B charts- but those days seem long gone now with radio stations showing little to no love for artists who started out in the 90’s and beyond.
So how does Brandy stay relevant? Acting. Brandy is one of the few singer/actresses who can actually act and rumors have been swirling around for some time now that her momager, Sonya Norwood, was in talks with the CW to bring her daughter back to television with a new sitcom. A hit show would do the singer well and give her a vehicle for her music. Hopefully these rumors pan out. I loved Moesha.
