Brandy's Afrodisiac album:
I hold this so dearly bc I remember listening to it all winter and really understanding why not just her fans love it but why critics hailed it has some of her most cohesive and quality work. Eventually I caught on to the fact that this album was the first of Brandy's discography to tie in experimentation, slick simmering R&B, more exposed voice layering with no digital distortion and very hazzy dream like quality, while being less futuristic more raw then anything she's done. .
This was definitely Alt-R&B for it's time. The way it's packaged it's not Janet Velvet Rope or Aaliyah Self Titled tinges of Alt-R&B. However it's on the opposite end of that spectrum in the same way as H.E.R, Jhene, FKA Twigs, etc is. Everything is slick, defined, soothing, flowing, and organic unlike Futuristic R&B is. This album has a lot to offer in terms of delivering a sensually charged but not overly at all sexual approach while having listenable and relatable themes that go hand in hand. All that separates it from the digitally pushed Full Moon album or Old-School R&B self titled album or even her other Best Work "2/11". .
Damn😱🤭 @4everbrandy and @wolfjames our true beast with their vocals. If you look on YouTube Brandy was backstage during one of his performances and she copied the same high note he did backstage. Although she’s said she’s not comfortable using her range doesn’t mean she don’t have it. As she said before “a b*tch got range” Lmao🤣🤣🤣 And tbh I think she’s starting to get more comfortable with these beautiful vocals and I can’t wait for her new album and to show off that body physique Brandy got curves😍👌🏾✨😏 @4everbrandy101 @4everteambrandy @pourthesyruptv @bethertv @bethertv #brandynorwood#staronfox#lukejames#rnb#soul#vocals#music
