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

What ya hear this time
Go on and speak ya mind
I know somebody's lying
It's always somethin
Her auntie told your cousin
Then all your homies jumped in
And now the whole hoods buzzin
He said, she said
Don't let it get in ya head
Baby don't say
Something that you will regret
I'm on your team
It's us against them you'll see
Hey, we ain't gon stop
They just want what we got

The more they talk about our love
The more they make it obvious
The more they seem so envious
How can they talk about our love
When they don't know one thing about
Instead they just runnin they mouth
So all we do is tune them out

I swear they got some nerve
Spreadin what they heard
I cant give them no run
I can't be concerned with all that talk
I won't be involved
That's my word
See I'm not the one
They got me confused
They got me messed up
Don't you think I've had enough
When it comes to what we do
All that matters is us two
Don't pay them no mind
We just gon show and prove

The more they talk about our love
The more they make it obvious
The more they seem so envious
How can they talk about our love
When they don't know one thing about
Instead they just runnin they mouth
So all we do is tune them out

Heres a couple of things I can't honor man
How you listen to a girl who still wanna man
Tell me the truth is that a man or Juwanna Man
I'm wonderin why she "Ret' ta go", like Wanda Van
When we met you was a V like Madonna man
Now you went field runnin plays like Donovan
McNabb before you get in a cab
I trade in my cab
Just to take you back to last summer man
You don't remember when you was my sweetest
You don't remember I called you Reeces Pieces
Cause it's no wrong way to do you know what
She turned around giggle said you so nuts
But nowadays we actin way too grown up
But how ya ex girl get that new numba
The rumors was so numerous
For sticking by me I had to give you two thumbs up
And that's why

The more they talk about our love
The more they make it obvious
The more they seem so envious
How can they talk about our love
When they don't know one thing about
Instead they just runnin they mouth
So all we do is tune them out

The more they talk about our love
The more they make it obvious
The more they seem so envious
How can they talk about our love
When they don't know one thing about
Instead they just runnin they mouth
So all we do is tune them out
