I had the pleasure of meeting the lovely Brandy yesterday when she came to Atlanta and performed at the Honda Battle of the Bands. I wasn’t sure how many songs she’d sing, but she surprised me by taking it back with “What About Us,” and “Full Moon,” before closing the show with “Wildest Dreams” and “Put It Down.”

If Brandy had the right promo this era could’ve been GREAT. Continue reading

Most artists that were praised at one time will go through a period where their popularity dips for some reason or another. That may end up meaning that their albums don’t sell the way they used to. Sometimes it’s the fault of the artist, other times it’s just not the right time. Continue reading
