We are excited for Brandy’s new album! Two Eleven follows Norwood’s least commercially successful album, Human (2008), which failed to enter the top-ten of the US Billboard 200. Its foundations can be traced back to 2009, a time when Norwood had been working on a second album with Epic Records, involving contribution from Ne-Yo and Stargate as well as The-Dream and Tricky Stewart. However, after singer-songwriter Amanda Ghost was appointed the new president of the label in February 2009, Epic terminated Norwood’s recording contract with the company. As some of the material recorded under Sony Music was left with the label and re-recorded by other artists, her departure from the company temporarily halted production on a sixth studio album. By mid-2009 however, she resumed work on brand new songs in the studio with producers such as Sean & Kadis.
Nicki Minaj has gone a little skimpy on us and that’s not a bad thing. But, we still don’t get the full grasp of who she is.
