After weeks of hearing “sometime this summer,” Brandy has finally set a release date for her new album, Two Eleven.
Brandy’s sixth studio album, her first on RCA/Chameleon Records, is shaping up to quite the disc. In addition to the duet with “The Boy Is Mine” collaboration Monica, B-Rocka is also set to hit the studio with Drake.
Brandy has found a new label home. The Grammy-winning singer has signed a record deal with RCA Records, according to Pop & Hiss. The deal, a joint venture between RCA and producer Breyon Prescott’s Chameleon Records, comes after her brief stint at Epic Records, which she ended after the commercial failure of her 2008 ‘comeback’ album, Human.
“Throughout her career, Brandy has consistently won the vote as everyone’s favorite female vocalist,” Peter Edge, chief executive of RCA Music Group, said in a statement. “I am sure that in her next chapter at RCA and in partnership with Breyon Prescott, we will record her most exciting music to date.”
The singer, whose career has seen a revival in recent months thanks to appearances on ABC’s “Dancing With the Stars“, and two seasons of her hit VH1 reality show, “Brandy & Ray J: A Family Business,” now joins the likes of Kings of Leon, Alicia Keys, Britney Spears, Ke$ha, and Chris Brown on the newly restructured RCA Records.
Brandy is currently in the studio working on her RCA debut, tentatively slated for an early 2012 release. Congratulations are in order for B-Rocka!
