well the era is bittersweet
i dont get to say the music is all that good
i dont get to say the vocals are all that good
but seing what shes capable of independent has kinda established that we take her work for granted
and it needs to be revered  more

so its like a 25 anniversary ep for me
i do want her to get another grammy
want her writing to improve and budget to come back
want her to get her a writers room leave it to the professionals

and be great

and stop with the second guessing herself reworking songs so heavily
I think you do too much but I agree with some of this but Brandy needed this to know who she is as an artist...this is the most sure of herself that I have seen her in over 20 years. She needed to come up from the ground and build herself back up and believe in her gift.

>>><<<

The next era will be even bigger/better and I truly believe that with everything in me.

Like she said; B7 was a healing album for her

Imagine what Brandy will be/is recording in the headspace she’s in now and with the opportunities she has now. So exciting

nope nope nope dont want to hear it
she took her heealed azz and recorded this track after the release of that album
were no longer doing the unheard and unreleased potential brandy is gonna slay and be better than ever  routine

right now in october 2020 shes putting out bullshit
and thats the energy untill further notice

Ddddd this is strongly worded but I kinda agree. This release really burst the bubble of anticipation and hopefulness that she'd deliver after all those years. For some this album worked, and for others it was underwhelming. I'm sad that it's shaken my faith in her ability to produce another classic, but maybe it's for the best. With lower expectations maybe the next mess will feel better to me. It's just hard to reconcile bc I've always put her on a pedestal above every other artist and with B7 she showed (to me at least) that shes not really capable of delivering without the right people involved. Her current team doesn't seem like the type to be honest and push her to be better.

So yeah, all that to say that the expectation of her next mess to be revolutionary ain't realistic anymore. She's showed what she's capable of on B7 after working on it for 4 years, so no point in wishing for any better the next go round.

Yes and I honestly think that was the lesson for most of us placing her on a pedestal
now its like Okay we really see its just the voice and nothing else really not even her ear  and musical choices can even be on that pedestal anymore. weve touted her as this magical vocal producer in which she does have some skills but not enough to pull off a project by herself clearly
The universe showed me with the dc incident that the idolatry needs to stop
and everytime i fall back into it something happens removes her from the pedestal again

If you remember i was the main one saying dont drag her the album will come when its time

and in 2020 its time

time to see that shes not a musical savior
time to see that it really was the machine when its all said and done
time to see shes no ones writer
time to see she cant even produce  her own mess right
time to see she ain't on point when it comes to her product
time to see that because of lack of vision she cant do a simple song without ruining the essence of it with her so called "perfectionist" bullshit cause aint shit perfect

and so now its about giving her  her flowers now because its a wrap

the era is about celebrating her more than new hot music

and again the universe let the b7 turn me way the fuck off again
and when i get sucked into the hype this shit gets released

im so done  lol

Ch ... Where is ur Music career... ?   cause u acting like you've accomplished everything this gurl did...but i bet u can't even do a quarter of what she did her whole career...   *click on baby mama's part   "U can't do it quite like i can"

We all know that when it comes to managing an era, bran and her team are NEVER on point and it's been like that since at least Human but she's still standing and on her grind even more now...
Yeah the single choices are not always the right ones but if there's a couple of things u can't deny and take from her is her vocal abilities and her ear to make even the most boring beat sound great as a whole...and the whole industry cant say otherwise.

Now u dont like the album.. FINE! but to act like she's less than the great artist that she is....! absolutely not ! and u're doin way to much.

for example. Whitney's last album was underwhelming to me, production and vocals wise... was she less of a great singer after that to me?! nop. (plus she lost her vocal abilities but still) it didnt take away all the things she accomplished ...

So y'all need to stop acting like Bran's music is the pits and that she's a lessor .. y'all will not.
it's one thing to not like this project and some of her choices related to that but to act like just because of one project u dont like she's not the icon that she is... ch..please...   several seats.

oh by the way, i H.A.T.E. this remix...  but Bran>>>>>>  y'all favs!

Yeah Lew is doing A LOT! You hate it so much but stay talking about it. In every damn thread. Shut the fuck up. Whew you are exhausting. Weird self

But i dont hate it im just beyond shocked at all of it i cant believe it

And im gonna say what i feel about it at everyturn untill i can get over it

And its getting worse so my shock is renewed

Im not weird i understand whats happening and why but its hard to accept
If i didnt care i wouldnt have shit to say

You need help.

If you’re that concerned,use that energy to showcase mixing skills and submit it to her team and maybe you’ll be able to help mix the next album.

The album is not terrible. The lyrics are not terrible. I get that the song structures are weird. I get that the mixing may not be the best. But to discredit her as an artist just because you don’t like her first independent album is going too far. She had others worrying about mixing for almost 30 years. This is her first time. Give her room to make mistakes at it. Give her room to grow at it.

Ranting in every thread about the same thing solves what?

No I edited the tracks I needed to hear the change on and others wanted
The album is just okay content wise
and the product she put out is actually her debut as an artist imo
vs just being an artistic interpretation for others
and there is alot to be desired after all these years
and i totally get she needs to grow
but im not glossing over this at all for anyone

Nobody asked you to gloss over it.
You past “gloss over” about 25 rants ago.
If it’s her debut as an artist, then by the standard a lot of legends never debuted as an artist.
What you need to heal, a Brandy album can’t do it for you.
She bared her soul in this music. That’s really all that should be asked of an artist.

Yes i know its very personal
and thats another animal altogether
but thats honestly secondary to my upset about it  thats like part 2
i cant belive how sloppy it is technically
but i will get over it
And Musically alot of artists have helped me heal
but for this one I dont need it for healing purposes
so i dont have the emotional connection others are having with it

Did you ever ponder if maybe it not being technically precise was also part of the artistic expression? Maybe, just maybe, that was a part of the approach and another form of expressing the subject matter and the various stages of mental health.

You’ve followed Brandy long enough to know the public version of her highs and lows. Try connecting her story to the songs and see it for her connection to healing, instead of your own. Because only seeking healing and emotional connection from your favorite artist, without regard for their own, can be selfish.

No i did not ponder that because during afrodisiac era she stated that this album was not as technical as the others so she was bringing a more raw voice to sessions and wasnt overdoing the vocals to the ground :)

and for b7 she stated that part of the delay was making sure she and everything  sounds clear

so i honestly think she missed alot of things because she does not know how to listen for the glitches enough to relay to an engineer what needs to be fixed

I just want good relatable music from her and this album is very down in the dumps and focusing on mental ilness and pain and whatnot and its just not diverse enough theme wise

most ppul seek to raise their vibration with music
which is why alot turn to gospel for its uplifting qualities

everyone has to do their own healing with the tools they have sometimes music can be a tool


What does something she said in 2004 have to do with her approach to an album she released 16 years later?

Most people? So are we to act like other genres (rock, blues, etc.) don’t make music that focused on pain and the lows of life? But Higher vibrations!!!!


No shade, but it’s not hard to see why a person who refuses to deal with their own mental issues wouldn’t like an album based around dealing with mental issues.

It has potential. They need to clean it up a bit. It’s not terrible but does sound sloppy on some parts. Like the harmonies and Ty’s entire verse can be a lot cleaner

!!!!!!!!!

She should’ve just slapped him on after her 3rd verse too. Brandy didn’t need to add nothing herself outside of some extra shit harmonizing w/ Ty at the end

I haven't read thru this thread and won't but hopefully they finish this up or just don't release it at all. The song didn't REALLY need anything imo. Furthermore, this is Brandy's best album since afro

I dont understand this logic we all have our ways we can be successful if bran has found great success with her art that is amazing but it doesnt invalidate anyone elses
My career is not in music but i do have some experience in the engineering side of it mostly because I wanted my own production to be as close to industry standard as possible and it is alot to study and experience but that is beside the point but we as fans have been forced to move our attention and focus away from bran mostly to cultivate our own talents. So its all  a learning experience

Right we see very clearly now its just the voice
and everything else should be handled by the professionals

Her career speaks for itself I dont have the power to do that  and im not trying to
but the veil has been lifted and our expectations are adjusting accordingly
As ive said Im still in shock by what the veil lift has revealed
but its getting better

and whitneys last album is on my phone right now its a great effort given what shes been through
but she kept its cute remaining just the voice

Well shes definitely been knocked off the pedestal
which is not surprising very powerful structures and people have been brought down and taken off their pedestals as well this year even pre covid
but as ive stated this era is more celebratory for her complete body of works and career
and we are gaining more appreciation for it
rather than dismissing it as old energy that can be outdone by the next project

thanks for your input
