Brandy Signs Deal with RCA Records; Sixth LP Due in 2012
It looks like Brandy‘s music career is back on track. The R&B songbird has inked a pact with RCA Records. The agreement brings her back to the Sony Music family as a recording artist under Breyon Prescott’s label Chameleon Records. In 2008, Brandy released her one album for Sony, ‘Human,’ but left the label in 2009 after it sold miserably in the marketplace.
The 32-year-old singer is currently in the studio working on her sixth album, which is slated for an early 2012 release.
“Throughout her career Brandy has consistently won the vote as everyone’s favorite female vocalist,” said RCA CEO Peter Edge in a press release. “I am sure that in her next chapter at RCA and in partnership with Breyon Prescott, we will record her most exciting music to date.”
Likewise, Brandy is thrilled to be back recording music again. “This is truly a blessing,” she said. “Breyon Prescott, Peter Edge and Tom Corson [RCA Music Group’s CEO and chief operating officer] believe in me and have introduced me to a home that also believes and knows exactly what to do with the type of music I’m doing. Breyon and the team at RCA/Chameleon are creative and forward-thinking and I am thrilled to be working with them.”
As we previously reported, Brandy is documenting her journey back into the music scene in a new reality series ‘On My Own.’ In a trailer for the show, the Grammy-winning singer was adamant about making the hottest R&B album possible. “This is my last opportunity, I’m bringing everything I have to this project,” she says. “I really feel like this is my last chance.”
This may not be Brandy’s last chance but it’s certainly her third go-around at being relevant in the music game. We hope she will make this one count and show us that you can still hang with the rest of the R&B divas. Good luck!
