#INTERVIEW: Brandy Talks Two Eleven Anticipation & New Love

Necole Bitchie recently chatted it up with Brandy in honor of today’s album drop, Two Eleven.

The two discussed Brandy’s longevity in the music industry, expectations of the new album and her new found love (of course).

Check out the excerpts.

Necole: Your album is almost here, how are you feeling right now.
Brandy: I’m excited, I’m nervous, I’m scared, and this is a very special project to me. It’s a project that I really believe in but at the same time, I would love for it to touch people the way its touched me, and reach as many people that it can reach. I’m so nervous about it, but I am also excited about it.

N: Would you say its one of your most personal albums?
B: Well, All of my albums are personal, I don’t really sing songs that I don’t really relate too, but I will say that this album shows so many different sides to who I am as a person. I’m very vulnerable on this album but at the same time sexy. In love, It’s the story of love and how it comes in different phases and transforms you in different ways.

N: You have been in the music industry for almost 20 years and honestly, there are people that do not realize that you have sold over 30-40 million records worldwide.  Sometimes with artists like yourself, you have to reintroduce yourself to a new generation. What has that been like for you?
B: Well this time wasn’t a challenge for me, because it just didn’t seem forced. It seemed as though I got into the studio and I was able to create something different but not so different where people who loved my music and have been following me wouldn’t be able to embrace it. This time around, it felt natural and authentic. When I first put out the ‘Put it Down’ song, it took a minute to catch, but I knew that it was something special about this return. The previous times I tried to come back, it was kind of difficult because I didn’t really believe in the music that I was doing, I didn’t really believe in the videos that I was doing, so it felt forced and like, if I don’t believe it then no one else is going to believe it. This time, it felt like it was the right time, I had the right team. It feels like I’m a new artist just rediscovering myself, its so much fun.
