she really digs the fuck IN on her unreleased mess

i wonder if a lot of it didn't make albums because most people may not "get" it

messages not being universal enough maybe, etc.



THIS DAMN SONG,M SDAFKNASDFLK

Ghan get your ass back in the studio with Tim and STAY there

this is one of the most substantive tracks ever written by/for an RnB artist.

I wish Brandy would consider re-recording and updating it. It really is a masterpiece

Franks pen game at one point was genius

The world needs a song like that.

Freedom is such a perfect interpretive vocal. It would never be the same if she touched it again 

that take, whenever she recorded it between 07-08 was magical. One of my most favorite songs

this is going to sound really random but freedom leaked around the time tomb raider anniversary was released dffff

all I can think of when I listen to that song is the game. The ruins and the old roman colosseum (as she sings about lions and crowds etc)

I’ve always linked two and two together

There’s something pretty sinister about “Anybody”, for me

Definitely haunting toward the latter half of that song with the backwards violin and weird vocal choice to almost mimic or counter what was happening with the violin. It was an incredible moment Ndndnfn and of course these LOWS she’s hitting

4:00 to the end. This haunted house vocal  :uhh:

!!!! That video would have been epic

The treatment she had for the Afro era is so weird to me. Even if Full moon didn’t sell 9 million copies over, she wasn’t no damn flop. She deserved a big ass budget and should have been performing at the BET awards on the main stage.

I will never understand why they settled for anything damn less

Yeah, it really blew my mind that she got the pre-show :dead:

Wasn't it the week after the album dropped? She debuted at #3 after two big artists at the time (Lloyd Banks and Lil Wayne), if I'm not mistaken. They did her dirty.

escape def.  I always felt like she was talking about suicide


(https://youtu.be/XqbIAlfuAyc)

No one likes escape ?

I'm losing all my patience
It's so hard to resist it
You don't know what I'm going through
No more hesitation
Some things are so enticing
I know what I have to do

Escape from my mind
Escape from my life
Escape anywhere
Escape far away
From here



I just seemed so dark like she was right there with razor blade to her arm.  Am I reaching or does anyone else see it ?


Also that guitar riff is everything

Wow!!! I totally agree with you!! It took me getting a little older and revisiting this song to really appreciate it but it definitely made me feel depressed when I GOT it.

The lyrics and the vocal delivery....

“Cuz to me love is worthless with no you and meeee”

And the “it should be clear how, I ride for you”


Something about her phrasing and tone with that crazy beat. And the end...we don’t want, no one to knowwwww

So haunting. One of my fave Brandy songs

Question, why do some of the fans call Brandy "Ghan"? I've seen it for years but never knew where it came from.
Title: Re: GHan's darkest song?
Post by: Annie on January 03, 2021, 05:52:35 AM
I think Afro called her Ghan first 
I don’t know was it a Gandhi reference?
i know we were changing words and names to God, Saints and historic people a lot to express a song or a person’s greatness

What does it mean?
i call her GHandy because she is so powerful and revered, but so humble at the same time. much like Gandhi  :ohwow: :ohwow:
Oh, I see.  I've seen y'all using that nickname so many times, but I really had no idea what it meant.
