Just when it seemed as though Brandy had finally gotten her act together, the sands under her feet have begun to shift once again. Why so figurative? Well, tell us if you don’t imagine her ‘Two Eleven’ album tumbling down the Billboard charts when you discover that its release date has been delayed again.
RCA Records has announced that ‘Two Eleven’ has been pushed back yet again, this time to October 16th. The record was previously set to hit stores in April before it was shifted to August 28th and then October 2nd. Prior to his latest new break, Brandy shared her frustration concerning the many changes with the Urban Informer but it seems her team is still struggling to get a handle on the project.
Just yesterday, Brandy released her new video for ‘Put it Down’, which features Chris Brown. Luckily, the song has been gaining momentum on Urban radio and it is expect to climb beyond its previous #23 peak on the Billboard Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart.
What else is there left to say about Brandy and ‘Two Eleven’? This is gross mismanagement of the highest order and it is frustrating to see one of the industry’s most talented artists suffering in such a manner. On the bright side, she was an excellent host of ’106 & Park’ yesterday and I sense she would be a fine addition to the ‘American Idol’ judging panel next to Mariah Carey or serve as a BET Awards announcer alongside MC Lyte.
