Toronto, ON – July 31, 2020 – Eight years seems like a lifetime to wait. Finally, GRAMMY Award-winning singer/songwriter, Brandy, releases her highly anticipated seventh studio album, b7, today via Brand Nu Entertainment/Entertainment One. Executive produced by Brandy along with DJ Camper and LaShawn Daniels, this 15-track confessional is her most personal to date as she was able to debut her writing skills for the first time in her career. With songs like the instant-grat track, Rather Be, and No Tomorrow, Brandy was able to take her life’s lessons and channel them into her first masterpiece as an independent artist. The album also features Daniel Caesar on the Grammy nominated single, Love Again, which has garnered over 85 Million streams worldwide, Chance The Rapper, and her daughter Sy-rai Smith who appears on the single High Heels, and background vocals for Baby Mama. Other featured producers and writers include Hit Boy, Cory Rooney, Victoria Monét, Antonio “Tony” Dixon, Kim “Kaydence” Krysiuk among others. The album is available now at all physical and digital retailers.
Also today, she releases the powerful video for her new single Borderline The dark, edgy track has Brandy interrogating her relationship with love over a hypnotic, downtempo groove. The haunting video for Borderline was directed by Derek Blanks and illustrates the darker, emotional loneliness that can take over a romantic relationship. “This is my most personal album to date,” says Brandy. “Every song tells a story.” Watch the video for Borderline here.
Borderline is at radio now and follows her single, Baby Mama, which is currently Top 10 on Billboard’s Adult R&B Songs chart. Watch the video for Baby Mama, ft. Chance the Rapper, here.
b7 marries the silky, smooth vibe she established on Never Say Never with the ground-breaking experimentation of Full Moon, albums that are revered as R&B blueprints for their use of multi-layered harmonies, unconventional song structures and forward-thinking electro-soul beats. The album explores Brandy’s journey over the last few years, and how she came to be the resilient, spiritually grounded women she is today.
