After a long hiatus, Brandy is back with a brand new album, Two Eleven. Brandy’s sixth album was released on October 12 2012. Two Eleven features collaborations with some of the biggest and best names in the music business, including Drake, Frank Ocean, and Chris Brown. The title of the album comes from Brandy’s birthday, February 11, 1979. February 11 is also the day that Brandy’s friend and idol Whitney Houston passed away, an entertainment icon with whom Brandy was very close.

About the author

After my childhood dream of achieving Olympic figure skating gold fell through, I moved on to Plan B: become a writer.

I graduated from Marymount Manhattan College in 2011, and since that time, I have worked as a writer, editor and blogger. Luckily for this site, my love of TV borders on obsession.
