Brandy : Two Eleven (October 16th)

During the album's listening part on August 20, 2012 at Germano Studios in Manhattan, New York, Two Eleven's executive producer Breyon Presscot revealed that there would be fifteen songs on the final track listing. Eleven of the songs were previewed at the album party but not all were completely mixed, mastered or finished.



Previewed tracks
"Do You Know" (produced by Mike WiLL Made It) sees Norwood firing back at her love. In the lyrics she "cuts down her man for failing to return her affections."

"Hardly Breathing"(written by Rico Love and Jim Jonsin) where Norwood speaks of the anguish of having her partner leave.

"Let Me Go" (produced by Bangladesh) described as an "up-tempo club song." On the chorus, Norwood sings "You know how I get when you let me go", and later in the song she makes reference to twitter and her mother. The song interpolates "Tonight" by Swedish pop singer Lykke Li.

"No Such Thing As too Late" (written by Love and Jonsin) sees Norwood talking about the emotions of a new relationship. Lyrics include the line "When you really love somebody / you can wait / 'cause there's no such thing as too late."

"Put It Down" (featuring Chris Brown)[53] (Shondrae Crawford, Sean Garrett, Chris Brown, Dwayne Abernathy) has a distinctly hip-hop flavour, with Norwood taking on her "rap-singing" vocal performance she last used when assuming her persona of "Bran'Nu" on Timbaland's album Shock Value II (2009). "Put It Down" is built around a "mid-tempo thumping production" courtesy of Bangladesh. The song first entered the US Billboard R&B charts at number 98 and has since reached number 13, becoming her biggest hit on the chart in 10 years.http://youtu.be/E5svXAZ9-Qk

"Scared of Beautiful" (featuring Frank Ocean) (Christopher Breaux, Lamont Neuble, Wayne Nugent, Kevin Risto, Tim Stewart) is a duet between Norwood and Ocean, and features the duo exchanging lyrics about looking forwards and not backwards, with lines such as "I wonder why there's no mirrors on these walls no more/ You can't tell me why you're so terrified of beautiful".

"So Sick" (written by Sean Garrett) (produced by Bangladesh) another record which was written by Garrett. On the song, Norwood addresses a lover who pushes her too far and "violating her trust", it includes the lyrics "How far do you think I'll let you push me before I cross the line?".

"White Flag" (written and produced by Hit-Boy) the ballad discusses "emotional defeat".

"Wildest Dreams" (written by Sean Garrett) (produced by Tha Bizness) A introspective ballad, "Wildest Dreams" speaks about Norwood's losing out emotionally. Lyrics include the line "Never in my wildest dreams did I think someone could care 'bout me/ Not just the way you love me, but you know I'm emotional (sometimes)."http://youtu.be/wGAQNzCXX-c

"Wish Your Love Away" (written and produced by Mario Winans) where Norwood sings with angst for her lover "who played her like a fool". Centred around a melody of "serrated drums" and a "piping" pan flute Norwood singles "Remember that you told me you were with it, and all them other bitches you could do without."

"Without You" (produced by Harmony) showcases Norwood's "strong vocals" with a "confident" attitude. It drew comparisons to "Enough of No Love" by Keyshia Cole, both Cole's song and Norwood's song were produced by Harmony Samuels.

i think she will do better than Human at least lol which did like 70k in first week sales things are looking very good for her thus far, her album is pretty anticipated and i don't think she's gonna put out a sub-par album, she has been working hard on this album for the guts of 4 years and described this as her 'last chance'...she ain't playin i also heard that billboard or rolling stone described it as the album of the year...or something along those lines

I'm scared she's going to as well But I love her and her albums never disappoint, she doesn't have a "bad" album to her name. I wish the bidge wouldn't take 4 years between projects though

Really, don't even look at me...

Re: Brandy : Two Eleven (October 16th)

I love all of Brandy's albums. Really can't understand why she flops so hard. I mean, her stuff is quality, unlike so many of the singers out there.

Her duet with Monica earlier this year hardly set the charts on fire Yet Monica is still having a good career so there is hope for Brandy.

Re: Brandy : Two Eleven (October 16th)

She will be fine. Put It Down is doing well on radio and Wildest Dreams was just released. RCA seems to be doing a much better promo job than Epic so i'm very hopeful. This will be a good era. I can feel it in my puss
