Transcript for Brandy on emotional new album
Welcome back. That was the music video for the song "Baby mama" from brandy's new album "B7". After an eight-year hiatus, she's returned to music with her seventh album and brandy joins us now. Brandy, thanks so much for being with us. You've been busy during the pandemic. You just released that first album, tell us about the album and how it feels to be back on the scene. Oh, my god, I'm so excited about music again. It's such a great time to share music right now, people need music, so for me it's just been such a -- such a blessing to be able to still have the passion and the love for music, you know, even though I've been gone for such a long time. "B7" is a very personal album to me. People will really get to know me when they listen to the album, know my story, and I'm really proud of that because I had to be very courageous and brave to tell some of the things that I speak about in the songs. What was the hardest subject to take on in this album? Heartbreak is always hard for me because, you know, I love really hard, so, you know, heartbreak was difficult. You know, I talk about mental health. I also, you know, talk about my love for my daughter. The video you just saw is about my daughter, my unconditional love for her. I got a chance to feature her on the album, so, you know, that was great. It's just a body of work that really -- that I'm just so -- just thankful that I was able to, you know, put it all together and it sounds cohesive and like it's supposed to sound and I'm rally grateful for that and the response has been great. I'm just so happy about that. We're grateful for the music. You mentioned your daughter, this is hard to believe that you have an 18-year-old daughter. Yes, I do. The song you worked on with her called "High heels." Tell me about that experience. Yes. The experience was so unbelievable, because, you know, of course we have a little bit of a studio here at the house. But to see her in a professional studio, in the booth, you know singing her heart out and really, like, blowing my mind and blowing everyone else's minds that in the studio, I was just in that moment. I was such a proud mommy in that moment and just giving her suggestions and her -- And she received them well? She received them well that day, yes. But sometimes, you know, we go head to head, you know, that's just how it is. Kids think they know everything. I have a 17-year-old, daughter, I know, brandy. You know what's up. , I do, I do. But when it came to the music and this song she really just respected how I wanted it, but I also respect her as well. She gave me a lot of suggestions and I just love when there's no ego and music just kind of tends to, you know, make the ego go away. I love working with her. I can't wait to work with her again. That's beautiful. We're excited because Netflix just announced it will be streaming a few throwback classic shows and among them "Moesha." It's been trending on Twitter. Already made it on Netflix's top ten. I'm so excited. I'm just like -- I'm thrilled because, you know, I've been waiting for so long for moesha to, you know, be a part of the platform like Netflix. That's huge for "Moesha." And the lot of fans who supported over the years, are like, where can we find it? Only on YouTube and it's not full seasons. For it to be on Netflix, trending, people still love it and watching it, it gives me hope that the reboot can really happen. A whole new generation of fans. We can't wait. Brandy, thank you so much for being with us. We want to tell everybody that "B7" is out now. Thank you so much for being with us today, brandy. Thank you so much. Love your personality. Thank you. Thank you. I feel the same about you.
