Is Two Eleven more influential than it's given credit for?

Iono about you gorls, but when I listen to Two Eleven in 2020, I'm struck by how ahead of its time it is.

I can hear its influence throughout the current landscape of R&B and Hip-Hop - trap, minimalist alternative R&B, and dark pop, to name a few.

Do ya'll hear it too?

 :gorlonfire:

Is the album being overlooked on Best of the Decade lists?

Yea I feel that it doesn’t get the love it deserves it’s a really good cohesive album. But it lacks a certain Brandy aspect about it.

No it was a bunch of leftovers and sub-par productions by PICO...

The promises of a drake collab weren’t kept, barely Brandy’s Songwriting. No live instrumentation. It was an album of the season I guess with barely a direction.

Slower is iconic though

It was Ghan's mixtape alber.

A bunch of hot songs thrown together for a quick microwave tea ...

Nowhere near the creativity of GODfrodisiac and was missing the cohesiveness of Snoreman
then vs. now

great grandma and i :wub:

If the new music ever comes I hope she breaks that 2nd single curse.. with how long she’s been gone she needs to drop 15 singles and videos at once tbh

No

Maybe songs like the Mike Will joint, which he had never done before her but no

I think her next album will be influential in a lot of ways and stand the test of time. She isn’t doing songs that were once demos for every other artist and she’s writing this time

No guarantee, but i can see the next album being something that people look too. TwoEleven was just a good collection of songs IMO

Nothing wrong with that but i hold brandy to a higher standard and i don’t think she held herself to one in that regard at the time.

Yea. When I go back on that album, it just seem dated like Human. Human is just boring now. I can’t even get into Piano Man and I freaking loved that song at the time.
