Brandy, who faces lawsuits and possible criminal charges from a fatal traffic accident, is coping by recording music.

"I've just got to get that album out," the pop star tells PEOPLE. "I have to get it out, if it's the last thing I do."

Brandy's album, which does not currently have a title, would be her fifth studio album, and the first since 2004's critically well-received Afrodisiac.

"I've been gone for a long time," says the 28-year-old R&B singer-actress, who spoke to PEOPLE at the recent Christian Audigier fashion show at L.A. Fashion Week. "I really want to give the fans something that they deserve to have. So, I'm working really hard on this. I really want to make it the best work I've done so far."

The Moesha star has kept a low profile since December, when she was involved in a four-car accident in which another driver was killed. The family of the deceased, Awatef Aboudihai, who was 38, has filed lawsuits against Norwood, as has another driver in the accident.

Police investigators recommended that Brandy be charged with misdemeanor vehicular manslaughter, but the Los Angeles City Attorney's Office has yet to file charges.

Brandy declined to comment on the accident or the lawsuits. But she tells PEOPLE that she's staying strong while making her new music.

"I think it's really finding that belief in yourself, where you just have it no matter what's going on, no matter what anyone else says," she says. "I think that's the challenge, is to really have that belief in yourself."

She continues, "I'm really working on this thing. This is what I'm supposed to do. I'm destined to do it. You just keep affirming everyday, and it will just be there."

I love Brandy. Afrodisiac is still one of my favorite albums. Hope this next one is just as good. That whole car accident thing is ridiculous if you ask me. It was an ACCIDENT...no drugs or alcohol involved at all. Anyway, I hope shes doing well.

Here's a link with leaked snippets of songs that are reportedly on her upcoming release. I think they are teasers. They have been combined into one file. Enjoy.

Good to hear that she's trying to put this behind her because she has been unfairly treated by the media with the whole accident.

The level of her comeback remains to be seen. I love all the songs that have been leaked so far. The only complete ones I've heard are Follow Me and Sweet Nothings, and I love the production on those. Either way I can't wait. I just want her back in the limelight, with fresh new music. Rock on Bran :kiss: :hearts:

I think it was confirmed that both Follow Me and Sweet Nothings won't be on the upcoming album..I really like Sweet Nothings though. I think Follow Me is just ok.

Brandy looks like an alien :scared:

Two things:

1. Afrodisiac was a really really good CD. So was Full Moon.
2. I hope none of her song titles have the words "hit" or "run" in it.

I agree Afrodisiac was a great album. I hope she makes a comeback.
