Brandy Essence Festival Press Room 2013-1

It’s been almost 3 years since we heard a Brandy project. Her last album “Two Eleven” was a reintroduction for her and enabled her to connect with old fans and also the new generation with songs like “Put It Down”. Since then, it’s been pretty quiet on the music front and it seems she’s spent more time focusing on her acting career with her role as Chardonnay on BET’s TV show The Game. However, there have been pictures of Brandy in the studio with producers recently and one of them happens to be DJ Camper. YouKnowIGotSoul had a chance to speak with the Grammy nominated producer about his upcoming work with Brandy which includes an EP:

“She called me and she wants to do a mixtape or EP with me. It’s just something for the fans and for the people. It’s going to be a 5 song type of thing, so we’re definitely working on that. Be on the lookout for that very soon. Working with her is a joy and she’s one of my idols. I think we can change the world especially in R&B and Soul music. It doesn’t get any better than that!”

And when asked to explain the sound of the project:

“It’s something refreshing. I’m not putting Brandy in the club. You won’t hear Brandy in the strip club or in elements like that. When you think of Brandy now, think of stadium status or arenas. Think of like the movie 300 with the Romans. It’s going to be big and classic. That’s what I’m having her around this time around. If you think Coldplay is big, watch what Brandy does.”
