The cover story entitled “It’s A Bran’Nu World,” which was shot by Miguel Starcevich and styled by Darius Baptist, shows the star working a fabulous pixie cut ‘do and a range of high fashion getups.
According to YRB, “Brandy is definitely in her zone. Following the release of her underrated, under-promoted 2008 album, Human, the former teen star retreated from the spotlight – a place she’s been centered since her first meeting with Atlantic Records at 15 years old. After several years of personal strife, including sagging sales of Human and severing ties with her recording label, Epic Records, the 33-year-old talent is ready to shed her skin and start anew.”
The hair is a big step up from the long weave we see in BET TV show “The Game”. It makes her look so chic!
The upcoming album titled “Two Eleven”, is a reference to her birthday (February 11th) and the day her mentor Whitney Houston passed away, Brandy is signifying a reinvention of sorts: she’s signed with a new label, RCA Records, shifted out of her comfort zone and is embracing reality. It’s a near confrontational way to reclaim her artistry. She tells YRB, “It’s taken a minute for me to really figure out the type of artist that I am, the type of music that I need to sing to reconnect with my audience. I just know with this album, I wanted it to be as honest and as real as possible,” she says. “Sometimes, you can get caught up in wanting to make hits and wanting to get on the radio and performing on everything that’s out there. I just wanted to stay true to who I was. That’s why it’s taken me so long to figure out the right home for me to put my music out there with. Other than that, I wanted my album to represent honesty and clarity and struggle and pain, as well as love, with a different sound and a different edge. That’s what this album is.”
Not sure what she’s doing with a spades on her head (shown below) but we’re sure the album will be a hit and we’re also looking forward to catching the superstar in Tyler Perry’s “The Marriage Counselor” premiering this July.
