yet another brandy post relegated to the back of the ontd bus

With an upcoming spot on talent show ‘Majors & Minors’ and a new tell all documentary on the way, it seems that Brandy Norwood is trying to make her way back to the forefront of music debate.

For after a difficult last few years riddled with poor album sales, intense personal drama and well documented label disputes, there is no denying that many of her ever loyal fans are hoping that upcoming years will serve to mark a more positive time for the performer.

But what can Brandy do to get back on top?…

Creatively ground breaking and one of the many faces at the forefront of 90s Pop culture, Ms. Norwood rose to fame as a crossover teen sensation in the early 90s. Gracing our ears with her unique tone and dominating our screens with the hit show ‘Moesha‘, the ‘Never Say Never’ singer found herself at the heart of the international music scene.

R&B enough to enjoy the embrace of urban audiences but clean cut and radio friendly enough to easily cement herself as a certified Pop sensation.

However, later years brought difficulties in the form of the Beyonce’s and Ashanti’s of the world, which saw the entertainer go from an honored member of the R&B royal family to the struggling less popular alternative.

Unable to compete with the chart successes of the fresher counterparts that she herself inspired. With what many refer to as ‘real R&B’ gaining recent notoriety with the recent releases of Jennifer Hudson, Kelly Rowland and Monica, is there enough room for Brandy in today’s charts?

say what you want about Brandy, but the fact that she keeps getting TV shows means that people really do want to see her. They wouldn't put her in multiple shows if they thought she wouldn't attract an audience. Peace <3
