With her sixth album Two Eleven due to be with us in a matter of weeks, Brandy enlists 2 Chainz and Tyga for some new raps on the remix to her latest single, “Put It Down.”

There’s a lot at stake with this album for the Grammy Award winning singer, as she revealed in a documentary trailer for On My Own last year.
“The evolution of Brandy is crazy. I’ve gone through some things that I haven’t yet sang about… From the break up with my ex-fiance, to the struggles since the car accident, and then Human not performing well at all, and then to being cheated out of Dancing with the Stars; it’s like failure after failure after failure…” she reflects openly.
“I’m bringing everything I got. Everything I have to this project. I honestly feel like – and I’m not trying to get emotional but – I really feel like this is my last chance… This is time away from my daughter.”
Will all that pressure produce a diamond of an album? We find out next month.
Brandy’s current single, “Wildest Dreams,” is out now.
