Brandy Talks R&B And Her Good Friend Frank Ocean
Brandy brought on a few of her favorite producers to work on her upcoming album Two Eleven, both Sean Garrett, Rico Love and Bangladesh, but she also got the notorious Mr. Frank Ocean.
Brandy tells MTV News that although Ocean contributed to this album and 2008′s Human, she would’ve loved to have an actual feature from him on the project, as well.
“He’s an amazing artist, [with an] amazing tone and amazing voice,” she said. “I had the pleasure of meeting him before everybody else met him, so I had a chance to work with him on my last [album], as well as this one. It’s always great working with Frank Ocean and he’s actually a dear friend of mine.”
Brandy also shares how she wants to bring back real R&B:
“I wanted to do an album that’s not only rooted in R&B but an album that had edge and grit at the same time and [good] lyrical content,” Brandy explained. “An album that really expresses the things I’ve gone through, as well as what I’ve seen other people go through.”
