News We Like: Singer Brandy for YRB Magazine April Issue
The latest issue of YRB Magazine sees Brandy pose in a set of fashion forward images as well as talk about birth, evolution and death and how they have, alongside her icon Whitney Houston’s passing, have determined the title of her latest album Two-Eleven.
Rocking a short haircut in the photos lensed by Miguel Starcevich, Brandy looks super glam.
Here are some snippets from her interview and more images from the shoot.
On Her New “Sound”:
“It’s definitely R&B, but it has the crossover appeal. It’s grittier, it’s edgier, it’s just different type of R&B. It’s not your regular smooth, soft with the beat type music,” she describes. “It’s just taking risks and hearing how I sound over different types of music, and I wanted an album that different people can listen to. Not just R&B, but pop and hip-hop. I wanted everyone to have something that they can listen to on this album.”
On Two-Eleven representing her birthday and the day Whitney Houston passed away:
“Some of the titles I was working with were Rebirth, Reincarnation, Reinvention, Resurrection… I just felt like Two Eleven describes all of that. It’s the day I was born, and each year, I evolve and change with time. It also has a whole new meaning to it because I gained my angel. My icon is my angel now. It’s all tied in there and I just think it best represents who I am and the responsibilities I have moving on.”
On why she worked with Frank Ocean:
“His music speaks volumes, and I was able to experience that before everyone else knew,” she says. “I always knew he was really special and I just wanted to see how we could vibe, what we could come up with together in the studio this time around. He’s just a genius. I think his songs have so much substance and so much depth, and you need that on an album as well.”
