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

Whoo!
Yeah, darkchild
B-Rock let's go

Why don't you return my calls?
Why you trip out where I be?
You don't ever come to see me
You say that you're too busy (what?)

What the hell?
I don't have time
Why you messin' with my mind?
I can find another guy
Someone who will treat me right

I don't need this bullshit
I won't put up with it, any longer
You can, go if you want
I don't, need you pity
I will, be just fine
If you decide, that you want to leave
Close the, door behind you
I just, want to know what...

What about all of the
Things that you say
What about all of the
Promises that you made
What about all of the
Nights that you gave
What about all of the
Things you told me
What about all of the
Things that you say
What about all of the
Promises that you made
What about all of the
Nights that you gave
What about, what about
What about us? What about us, us?
What about us? What about us, us?

I thought you said you were different
Was that what I heard you say?
Said that you'd love only me
Thought that you'd be all I need (what?)
What happened to promises?
Said that you were a better man
Your words have no way with me
Cause you're counterfeit, I see

I don't need this bullshit
I won't put up with it, any longer
You can, go if you want
I don't, need you pity
I will, be just fine
If you decide, that you want to leave
Close the, door behind you
I just, want to know what...

What about all of the
Things that you say
What about all of the
Promises that you made
What about all of the
Nights that you gave
What about all of the
Things you told me
What about all of the
Things that you say
What about all of the
Promises that you made
What about all of the
Nights that you gave
What about, what about
What about us? What about us, us?
What about us? What about us, us?

Baby you should now hear this...
Now what if I said that you wasn't fit to be with
Now what if I told you you're game was played, I licked it
Yo what if I said I wasn't true, so do you
You and I know, without me there's no you
So what about the bills that were passed due
Before you, all you said to me was "Baby I'll owe you"
Forget about the brand new life that I gave you
Now what about us to me, now what about us to me

What about all of the
Things that you say
What about all of the
Promises that you made
What about all of the
Nights that you gave
What about all of the
Things you told me
What about all of the
Things that you say
What about all of the
Promises that you made
What about all of the
Nights that you gave
What about, what about
What about us? What about us, us?
What about us? What about us, us?

What about all of the
Things that you say
What about all of the
Promises that you made
What about all of the
Nights that you gave
What about all of the
Things you told me
What about all of the
Things that you say
What about all of the
Promises that you made
What about all of the
Nights that you gave
What about, what about
What about us? What about us, us?
What about us? What about us, us?

Oh, oh, oh, oh...
