Brandy has sold more than 25 million albums worldwide and as a result has taken home over 100 awards and honors. Yet the acclaimed singer and her pop hits have remarkably been absent from the charts for this entire half-decade. Now, more than four years since the release of her last project, “Aphrodisiac,” the 29-year-old is on the comeback trail with the impending release of her fifth studio album, “Human.”
Reunited with longtime executive producer, Rodney “Darkchild” Jerkins, who is responsible for her most successful album, “Never Say Never,” Brandy has unleashed the project’s lead single, “Right Here (Departed)” Already beginning to impact at radio stations across multiple formats, the song’s success will ultimately determine the resonance of the entire comeback project, which is currently scheduled for release on November 11.
In an exclusive interview with DJBooth’s DJ ”Z,” Brandy steps inside the booth to talk about which human elements are showcased on the new album, why her work with Darkchild produces such special results, what the future of her acting career beholds, and how she plans to fulfill a certain responsibility to her fans.
