Evolution and expression: an interview with Brandy

Recently I got the chance to sit down with Brandy.

Yes, this Brandy:

After an 8 years, this summer Brandy gave fans the gift of her latest, and long awaited studio album.  b7 showcases both her unmistakable talent that cemented her as a music industry icon, and the sonic evolution that comes with experience, growth and true self acceptance.  It’s an album that’s as stunning as it is touching, with songs that bring you to tears with their poignancy, and others that bring you to your feet with their irresistible beats. Check out the powerful video for her latest single “Borderline”, a deeply raw and personal song that’s brought to life by Frank Gatson and Brandy herself.



I was given the incredible opportunity to sit down with Brandy to talk about everything from singing to acting to growing up.  I’m not going to lie, I’ve never been more nervous before an interview.  I mean, BRANDY!  But she was so gracious, kind and a total star on every level that my nervousness soon gave way to pure admiration.  Apologies in advance if my immense girl crush is distracting, and that our Zoom connection was tempermental, but I think Brandy, with her humor and wisdom, makes up for it.  So here it is, one of my favorite interviews ever, with the one, the only, Brandy.
