Dear Brandy: Welcome Back! You did that!

*Editors Note: This post was originally written on October 17 yet not posted until today

Let me start off by saying, While i’ve always been a fan of Brandy, there have definitely been at least two albums she’s released that I didn’t even waste my time listening to samples of because I was just plumb NOT interested. Just being honest, as far as I was concerned, nothing could be Never Say Never. I mean Afrodisiac was VERY good(in my opinion), but nobody really appreciated it. But that album Human? That first single wasn’t working for me and I wasn’t interested in finding out what else happened on that album.

So fast forward to this week(October 12) Brandy releases her sixth studio effort TwoEleven and I, again, wasn’t going to waste my time. as I was just plain disinterested. I love her as a person but wasn’t checking for the music. I am however glad she isn’t doing reality TV anymore because that was NOT a good look for her. She was depicted in a very unfavorable light (the whole family actually) luckily she realized that so I’m glad we’re all in agreement. But I digress…my point?

I did end up sliding over to iTunes and listening to her album. The top eight songs I wasn’t feeling as they sounded a bit overly auto-tuney…but by about Track 10 I was all in…


My summarized point: BRANDY! Did that thang…This took me back to the feeling I had when Full Moon dropped(the single NOT the album). I’m almost on “Never Say Never” levels,  ALMOST! That album right there was a masterpiece… but with Two Eleven, she’s well on her way and I’m very happy for her. In general.

Go listen for yourself and I bet you’ll love at least one track.


*On Heavy Rotation* Case

I have been carry on about “Happily Ever After” by Case for a few days now. First, it came on Satellite radio the few weeks ago and I was like, “now why isn’t this song on my iPod?” (SN: No worries, it is now) So then I’m walking through the mall and it comes on and I go to change it but I couldn’t it just sounds so good, I not only have to let the whole thing play I also I have to sing along with the chorus (loudly if need be).

“Couldn’t we be Happily Ever After? We could be strong together for so long…” POETRY

Okay, fine. Then the other day, as i’m just chillin and thinking I randomly recall the perfect marriage proposal line in the first verse of the song: “I will be your man, your protector your best friend, ’til my humble life has ended and time begins again. Couldn’t we be?…”

With that, I think it’s finally time to gone ahead and give this song the heavy rotation designation because its been on my mind to many times for me to not post it and get the chorus stuck in y’alls head too.


*Morning Playlist* “How Many Ways”- Toni Braxton

Now i’m not sure if this is because my love for the Braxtons has reminded me how much I love Toni Braxton’s music, but  I woke  up with this throwback TB song in my head for some strange reason and since my postings have been running on low fuel I thought I’d share.

I’m feeling really newsy and musical today… So standby fore more.

Also, my mind has been plagued with so many questions with the onslaught of all the foolery lately so that post will also be coming down the pipe soon…I’m eyeing Thursday, but you never know.

Stay Tuned…
