As we get closer to the release date of Brandy‘s sixth album Two Eleven, the Grammy-winning crooner shares the deluxe cover art and tracklisting for the project.
As far as features go, the tracklisting shows only the Chris Brown appearance on “Put It Down,” but that doesn’t necessarily mean that there aren’t more. We’ll probably have to wait and see whether Ms. Norwood has some surprises up her sleeve.

After spending a few years away from the game to be a full-time mom, R&B veteran Brandy is preparing a triumphant return to the spotlight and unveils the cover art for her highly-anticipated sixth LP, Two Eleven.
Ms. Norwood says the album, her first since 2008’s Human, is full of gimmick-free, “real R&B music” and is totally different from her previous projects.
“It’s a little bit sexier than my previous albums — very vibed out, and it’s versatile,” she told Rap-Up. “It has so many different R&B sounds and different R&B records on there. I got a chance to work with different people more than I did in the past because in the past, it was pretty much one producer that I would work with and I didn’t really get a chance to explore a lot of different talents. I was able to do that with this album.”
Contrary to previous reports, Brandy didn’t get to work with Timbaland due to scheduling conflicts — “It sucked because Timbaland is like one of my favorite producers,” she said, regretfully — or Rodney Jerkins, but the album does feature a lot of writing from Sean Garrett and appearances from Chris Brown and Monica. Drake and Frank Ocean are also rumored to have contributed their writing talents to the project.
