Earlier in the week, we got our first glimpse of Brandy on the set of her new music video for “Put It Down,” the lead single from her forthcoming sixth album Two Eleven, due October 2. Now the singer-actress gives a closer look at the Hype Williams-directed clip with the official stills from the set.
B-Rocka gets close with her collaborator and co-star Chris Brown, rocks ’90s styled braids and shows her moves, courtesy of fame choreographer Frank Gatson Jr. (Michael Jackson, Beyoncè), in front of two Ferraris in the latest shots.

KeKe Palmer unleashes her inner Brandy circa 1998-99 and serves wholesome sex appeal in the video for “You Got Me,” the Kevin McCall-assisted single from her upcoming debut mixtape. Palmer, who stars in Ice Age: Continental Drift, makes the transition from child star to budding diva in the clip without falling off the wagon.
Less than 24 hours after her reliving her journey on Behind The Music, Brandy opens a new chapter with “Put It Down,” the lead single from her upcoming album Two Eleven, her debut on RCA/Chameleon Records.

The single hits iTunes on May 8, and precedes the album which features production from Timbaland, Mario Winans, Danja, Hit-Boy, Noah “40” Shebib, Rico Love, Ester Dean and Frank Ocean.
