After a gap of eight years, Brandi is back in music with her seventh album “B7” which was released on July 31 through her record label Brand Nu and Eon Urban.
The 15-track album is co-written and co-produced by Brandy and is co-produced by Chance the Rapper, Daniel Caesar and his daughter C’Rai. After a five-year legal battle with her former label Chamilion Entertainment, Brandi told Rolling Stone that she was finally freed with the release of the record.
“I put everything I could into this project. It was so free for me, because I really had the opportunity to dig and write from my heart, “said Brandi.” I really got a lot of things out of my chest, really used music as a way to escape and heal. “

“I’m glad I didn’t rush because you want to make sure it’s your best job when you’ve been absent from music for so long,” Brandi said. “For me this album is my last project. What do I want it to be like? How do I express myself? “
After the release of her sixth album “Two Eleven” in 2012, Brandi focused on her acting career, debuting on Broadway as Roxy Hart in “Chicago” and starring in the BET sitcom “After Joe Ever”.
