Brandy Signs With Motown Records, Talks Eighth Album

After a brief stint as an independent woman with B7, Brandy has announced that she's officially signed with Motown Records.

The singer/actress released the following statement: “I’ve always wanted to work with Ethiopia [Habtemariam, Motown’s CEO and chairwoman]. I’ve just always thought that she was just a bad-ass Black woman who loves music, knows music, and I saw her work her way up because she’s so talented. So when I heard that she was who she is now at Motown, I was like, ‘If I ever were to go back to a major label, I would want to work with Ethiopia.’ And it happened.”

She added:

“I used to always wonder when I would watch Diana Ross, Michael Jackson and all of the amazing Motown artists, ‘Would I ever be able to make it in that time? What would I have sounded like on Motown?’ I would have loved to have that Motown sound. And then, years later, I get this opportunity to do this unbelievable partnership with them. And it’s Ethiopia. And it’s Motown. And I’m like, ‘Wow, this is the universe! I’m going with this! I have to go with this.’ They’ve just been so supportive of me.”

Here's what she said about her forthcoming eighth album:

“I can’t wait to get started on the music because it’s going to be so refreshing, so different. And I’m just looking forward to singing and listening and learning and growing all over again. I feel like I’m reborn. I feel like I have a whole new energy, a whole new spark, to keep going, to keep moving, and to keep doing what I love to do, which is sing, rap, act and dance.”

I can't wait to hear it.
