MULTI-PLATINUM, AWARD-WINNING SINGER/SONGWRITER BRANDY READIES RELEASE OF NEW FULL-LENGTH ALBUM B7 FOR JULY 31
BABY MAMA FT. CHANCE THE RAPPER
#7 ON ADULT R&B AIRPLAY CHART
Toronto, ON – July 21, 2020 – GRAMMY Award-winning singer/songwriter, Brandy, is set to release her highly-anticipated new studio album, b7, on July 31, 2020 via Brand Nu Entertainment/Entertainment One. The album is available for pre-order/pre-save now at all DSPs and at brandyb7.shop.
In addition, her single Baby Mama, ft. Chance the Rapper, is currently at #7 at radio on the Adult R&B Chart. Released around Mother’s Day, the track is an ode to raising her daughter Sy’rai and a larger anthem to all mothers working hard to support their family. Watch the video here.
b7 is Brandy’s first full-length release since 2012’s Two Eleven, and her most personal to date. She went back to basics for b7, assembling a small core team she would write and produce the entirety of the project with, anchored by DJ Camper (H.E.R., Tamar Braxton) and the late LaShawn Daniels, who helped pen some of her biggest hits including, The Boy Is Mine and What About Us. Working with writers and producers that studied what she’d done in the past and could push her gave Brandy the confidence to completely shed herself. “Because this was such a personal project for me, I wanted to make sure the music was right and the best for me—and it took a minute,” she says. “I was trying to find my sound … and get to a place where I could express myself as honestly as I could creatively.”
b7 is a 15-track confessional exploring Brandy’s journey over the last few years, and how she came to be the resilient, spiritually grounded woman she is today. Brandy dominated pop music in the ‘90s with her blend of hip-hop soul and contemporary R&B paired with a richly unique tone that led to genre purists hailing her as the “Vocal Bible.” A generation of R&B fans can tell you exactly where they were the first time they heard I Wanna Be Down, or saw her Bankhead bouncing in the middle of Times Square in her iconic Baby video. By the time she was 19, Brandy was arguably a peerless pop star. Her groundbreaking sophomore album, Never Say Never, had catapulted her to higher heights as she was in our living rooms every week on Moesha. Brandy was the first Black artist to be the face of CoverGirl, had a line of Barbie dolls, and was the first Black woman to play Cinderella in a film—that she did all of this with micro braids down to her hips made her all the more inspirational for young Black women across the globe that had never seen this kind of Black girl magic. Brandy has sold more than 40 million albums worldwide and is ranked one of the best-selling female artists in American music history by the RIAA, having sold over 11 million albums in the United States.
