Als Brandy (Norwood) twee jaar is zingt ze al de sterren van de hemel in het plaatselijke gospelkoor waar haar vader de scepter zwaait. Nadat haar familie van McComb naar Los Angeles verhuist volgt ze een studie op de Hollywood High Performing Arts Center. Brandy gaat niet veel later aan het werk als achtergrondzangeres bij de boyband Immature. Met producer Keith Crouch, die werkte voor de groep Somethin’ For The People, maakt ze haar debuutalbum Brandy dat in 1994 verschijnt. Wereldwijd werden er van dat album zes miljoen stuks verkocht en in de Verenigde Staten kwamen er drie top 10-hits.


Nederland leert Brandy pas kennen als The Boy Is Mine, van haar tweede album Never Say Never, de Top 40 voor drie weken weet aan te voeren in 1998. Een jaar later staat ook Have You Ever in de Top 40.


In 2001 keert Brandy terug in de lijst met een remake van de Phil Collins-hit Another Day In Paradise. Haar versie met haar broer Ray J staat drie weken op nummer 4. Met hem maakt ze in 2010 ook de realiti-serie Brandy And Ray JL A Family Business Van haar derde album Full Moon weet later ook What About Us de lijst te bereiken.


Na een pauze verschijnt in 2004 haar vierde studioalbum Afrodiciac. De track Talk About Love, waarop ook Kanye West te horen is, wordt een bescheiden vijfde Top 40-hit voor de zangeres. Two Eleven is in 2012 haar zesde en vooralsnog laatste studioalbum. In 2015 maakt ze haar debuut op Broadway waar ze in de musical Chicago de hoofdrol van Roxie Hart voor haar rekening neemt.


In 2018 staat Brandy weer volop in de schijnwerpers met I Could Be Wrong, de track van Lucas & Steve die door Radio 538 wordt uitgeroepen tot Dance Smash.


Songtekst

[Brandy] Excuse me, can I please talk to you for a minute
[Monica] Uh huh, sure, you know you look kinda familiar

[Brandy] Yeah, you do too but, hmm
I just wanted to know do you know
somebody named you
you know his name

[Monica] Oh, yeah definitely, I know his name

[Brandy] I just wanted to let you know, he's mine

[Monica] Uh,no, no he's mine

[chorus 1]
You need to give it up
Had about enough
It's not hard to see
The boy is mine
I'm sorry that you
Seem to be confused
He belongs to me
The boy is mine

[Brandy]
I think it's time we got this straight
Let's sit and talk, face to face
There is no way you could mistake him, for your man
Are you insane

[Monica]
See I know that you may be
Just a bit jealous of me
Cause you're blind if you can't see
That his love is all in me

[Brandy]
See I tried to hesitate
I didn't want to say, what he told me
He said, without me
He couldn't make it through the day
Ain't that a shame

[Monica]
And maybe you misunderstood
Cause I can't see how he could
Wanna change something that's so good
All of my love was all it took

[chorus]
You need to give it up
Had about enough
It's not hard to see
The boy is mine
I'm sorry that you
Seem to be confused
He belongs to me
The boy is mine

[Monica]
Must you do the things you do
Keep on acting like a fool
You need to know, it's me not you
And if you didn't know it, girl it's true

[Brandy]
I think that you should realize
And try to understand, why
He is a part of my life
I know it's killing you inside

[Monica]
You can say what you wanna say
What we have, you can't take
From the truth, you can't escape
I can tell the real, from the fake

[Brandy]
When will you get the picture
You're the past, I'm the future
Get away, it's my time to shine
If you didn't know, the boy is mine

[chorus]

[Monica]
You can't destroy this love I've found
Your silly games, I won't allow
The boy is mine, without a doubt
You might as well throw in the towel

[Brandy]
What makes you think that he wants you
When I'm the one that brought him to
This special place that's in my heart
Cause he was my love, right from the start

[chorus 2x]

[Brandy] He belongs to me [sang in chorus]
[Monica] The boy is mine, not yours [after chorus]
[Monica] Not yours
[Brandy] But mine
[Monica] Not yours
[Brandy] But mine
[Monica] Not yours
[Brandy] But mine

I'm sorry that you
Seem to be confused
He belongs to me
The boy is mine
