Brandy DROPPED From Label!

Brandy has reportedly been dropped by her label Epic Records, according to Black Voices.  And their reason was that her album sales for her comeback album Human were piss poor.  The album was released  in December and has only sold 196,509 units to date according to SoundScan. And thanks to the recession, nobody's trying to roll with those types of numbers. It's also being reported that Brandy has split from her management team at Roc Nation.  They split due to "creative differences."  I hope that wig line she's the face of is bringing in some change... UPDATE: Brandy is claiming it's not true that she was dropped.  We posted this story based on a typically very credible journalist source ( who we linked in this article)  who broke the story themselves.    I do know one is known to have lied before.  Just sayin'...

well: leave beyonce and

well: leave beyonce and ciara alone. if she had focused on her craft and not be a man chaser having children unmarried and other legendary activities maybe she will still be relevant today. Bey and Ci work hard and they would never abandon their fans for years on end. either way i like brandy and wish her the best. if it’s true i’m sure she’ll do movies. with the economy i cant see another label taking the risk. How would u feel after ur live takes all different negatives she was prepin her album before this accident happened..which is why there was them leaks like 'Sweet Nothings' and 'What have u done for me' etc that came around early 07 I would never ever say that brandy abandoned her fans. shes knows da importance of her fans, shes always said she loves her stars because without her stars she cant shine. And shes always refered to her musical efforts these days as have purpose..because she has a responsibility to make good music.. She worked hard on Moesha, and her albums at the same time.. so where u going wid this abandon fans for years. Watch when beyonces decides to have a couple of kids and u dont hear her for while is that the attitude u gon take? Brandy has had a kid, and everything on beyonce was put in a group and easily outshined that group. So it was easy to spot da gem..(stil got love for kelly and michelle) But i know dat bran gon get her way in the end.. never stop making music..Vocals..are SMH a REAL SUMTHIN she can do anyhing with the right promotion, which she never got this time round.. no posters, no tv adds no proper exposure for her comeback. KEEP FIGHTIN BRANDY

Its a wrap! Sorry to all you

Its a wrap! Sorry to all you Brandy fans. She was good during her time but her time has come and gone. Oh and also to all Brandy fans, if it will make you feel any better, alot of other rnb chicks that came out around the same time as Brandy or slightly before her they don't stand a chance either. This music game is a BEAST. You have to be on the grind 24 hours a day (and wait on being a mommy, baby momma and wife) until you have the music game in a choke hole.

Michelle: LMBAO! So many

Michelle: LMBAO! So many people are so right on so many levels. They need to bring artist development back. It’s like they are trying to banish R&B all together. @TEE-HEE I agree 100% with you. The great thing about these comments is that everyone had wise things to say about what’s going on in the music industry. I can’t remember the last good R&B album I’ve heard. No one’s hating on Ciara at all but honestly this years BET awards and her rendition of Heal the World kind of put her in a bad situation. Honestly none of these artist are that talented to me. Ciara can and should have never changed up her style. She said she wasn’t a Whitney Houston from the door and I respected that but she should have stayed Ciara. Sexy doesn’t work for her although I think she is a gorgeous girl.Beyonce is a beautiful girl who is getting over on her looks because if you really think about it she isn’t any better than the rest of the girls out. Her grind is crazy but honestly listen to the lyrics in her music. It’s pop corn music. She’s a glamourized video girl. I was a hard core Beyonce fan would argue anyone down until I really started paying attention. She’s good but she’s not that great. Someone even said she’s the new Michael Jackson. It’s 3:23 pm. That person should be dead by now. She has a long way to go to get that kind of coverage and that tribute at the Essence Festival did not help at all.Anyway I wish Brandy the best of luck. Rock on B rocka. Never degrade yourself. Keep your integrity, love god and things will be fine baby girl. Dont know what you are talking about but Bey did a very good tribute at Essence! She should have done that at the BET awards.... My thing is, why are yall talking about other artist? Either you're selling or you're not, thats just business! Bey is selling, Ciara not so much the last go round but she isnt a vocalist so she doesn't really count. So to all the Brandy fans, if yall would go out to support her projects, this would not have happened. Leave other artist out of it!!

Brandy is truly a great

Brandy is truly a great artist. She is not doing what Beyonce, Ciara, and RiRi are doing and that is selling their bodies. Out of the three mentioned, I think Beyonce has the most talent, and does not have to show her body and dance to sell, but Beyonce is smart and she knows how to sell music. You cannot be mad at her for knowing the game. Brandy has to try something differnet. Not selling her body, but she has to do something to make herself known in today's music. She can sing, but she has to do something else. It is sad that the music business is that way now, but if you want to sell you have got to do it. Look at Janet, she is an ION, but she was dropped as well. Why, because she was trying to do it the same way that she has been doing it and the music scene has changed since the 90's. That goes for Monica as well. Voice alone will not get you where you need to be. You have to put something extra with it. Like mentioned by other people, Brandy has plenty of money and she is not worried about nothing, but if music is where she feels she belongs, she has got to get on her grind. Be in that studio night and day. I have Human and like it, however, out of all of her CD's, I can say this was not my favorite. If she does something like FullMoon, she will be an instant hit again. I always wonder how big that album would have been if she did not have to stop promo to have her daughter (she song live performances then and was on point). Last but not least, if everyone on here that is supporting Brandy and saying what a great artist she is would have ACTUALLY purchased her CD instead of downloading it, she would have more sales. That is the BIGGEST problem with music right now. People have the CD, but they did not buy it. We hurt the artist and cause the artist to get dropped. It is not the label's fault, it is ours because we cheat the artist. Please support these artist and buy their CD's. This is the prime example why Brandy has to do something a little more than just sang, because people are not going to buy your CD if you do not. They will just download it and say it was good, but she does not get the money for it.

Btw, Mariah cant sing live anymore. She blamed her aweful vocal performance at M.J's memorial on emotions when Jermaine sang better than her.

Life..........Just needed

Life..........Just needed to get this out. This world is HELL.: I NEED YOU GUY’S HELP!!! AS WE ALL KNOW THAT CONGRESS WOMAN JACKSON-LEE MADE AND OFFER TO HAVE A RESOULITION PLACE IN CONGRESS! THAT HAS BEEN SHOT DOWN. TMZ HAS LOST SOME COOL POINT. WE AS A COUNTRY WHITE AND BLK, NEED TO STAND TOGETHER ON THIS. TO ME THIS IS NOT ABOUT MICHAEL JACKSON, WHEN YOU LOOK AT WHERE THE COMMENTS ARE GOING. THIS IS ABOUT HAVING THE BLK COMMUNITY LOOKED DOWN ON IN EVERY WAY. HE DID DO A LOT, AND HE DID DO DRUGS. MOST HAVE. WHAT DOES THAT HAVE TO DO WITH HIM BEING HONORED. HE MADE A LOT OF BAD CHOICES IN HIS LIFE, WHO HASN’T. “WHEN HAS WORD’S SPOKE LOUDER THAN ACTION?” TO GIVE SO MUCH OF YOURSELF, TO HAVE THE ENTIRE WORLD RESPECT YOU. YET THE LAND WHERE YOU WERE BORN OPPOSE AND HATE YOU. I THINK THE DREAM OF AMERICA IS FADING. MR.OBAMA IS GOING TO HAVE THE WORST PRESIDENT WRAP WHEN HE LEAVES. DUE, TO THE CONDITIONS THAT ENTERED INTO. HIS NAME WILL BE STAMPED ON THAT. BECAUSE HE IS NOT A TRADITIONAL PRESIDENT. WHERE AM I GOING WITH THIS YOU MAY ASK. I AM JUST A WOMAN THAT IS VERY DISAPPOINT WITH HER COUNTRY RIGHT NOW. NOTHING HAS CHANGED HER, THINGS ARE BETTER THAN THEY WERE. BUT TO SAY A CHANGE HAS BEEN MADE IS A MISTAKE. OPEN YOUR EYES, LETS NOT DEPEND ON THE NEXT PERSON TO TAKE A STAND. MICHAEL JACKSON BROUGHT US ALL TOGETHER (ALL RACES). LETS TACKLE TO WORLD IN HIS NAME. LETS SHOW THEM THAT ACTIONS SPEAKS LOUDER THAN WORDS. WE FALL DOWN BUT WE GET UP. FOR A SAINT IS JUST A SINNER WHO FELL DOWN, AND GOT UP. REGARDLESS, HE WAS JUST A MAN. A MAN THAT HAD A VISION OF OUR WORLD THAT WAS FAR GREATER THAN COULD IMAGE. MICHAEL JACKSON FLAW WAS THAT HE COULDN’T SEE THE EVIL IN THOSE AROUND HIM. HE LAYED THE FOUNDATION FOR THE STUPID THINGS THAT ARE BEING SAID TODAY. WHY, CAUSE LIKE OUR HEAVEN FATHER STATED: MARVEL NOT THAT THE WORLD IS AGAINST YOU. YOU ARE NOT OF IT. YOU ARE A PART OF ME. TO HAVE EVERYTHING THAT HE HAS DONE……….TO BE FOR SHADOWED BY THE THINGS THEY SAY HE DID. LET’S THIS HOLD TRUE. THE LORD PUT MICHAEL JACKSON THROUGH THOSE TRIALS FOR A REASON. TO SEE IF HE FELL SHORT OF KNOWING WHO THE REAL KING OF KINGS WAS. HE DID NOT STOP DOING WHAT HE HAD DONE ALL ALONE. HE LOST FAITH IN THE WORLD, BUT NOT GOD. IT WAS HIS TIME. SO LETS STAND TOGETHER AND SUPPORT, UP LIFT AND ENCOURAGE. P.S. I apologize for this rant. I just needed to get this out, and i wanted to do it where i felt most comfortable. Thank you for reading this if you did. Sorry for taking up so much space for those who could careless. I WILL NOT SUPPORT. MJ - MAY YOU REST IN PEACE

Why does everyone hate

Why does everyone hate Beyonce ?: Mariah Carey is far beyond anything that Beyonce has ever done. Beyonce is well know for being a publicity whore, or a corporate whore who endorses just about anything.Mariah Carey albums are quality albums that you can pull out at anytime. Mariah Carey is diva but she not overbearing.Why is it that so many people dislike Beyonce. I mean so many people. It could not be hate. We do not know her on a personal level. We dislike her music and believe that she is overated.We are sick of people saying she is the best when she is clearly not. Why do so many people dislke Beyonce ?Ponder on that. Why has Brandy getting dropped turned into a anti - beyonce post?!

Love Brandy, but Human wasn't

Love Brandy, but Human wasn't a commercially viable album. It's one thing to go left of radio, but it has to be hot and "Right Here(Departed)" wasn't that. "Long Distance" was too 90's pop ballad-esq. That type of sound is not in right now. She can still be current and ho without doing what everyone else does. I firmly believe that. Look at Full Moon. A very hot album, that got her her last top ten hit and could've really had legs in 02 if she didn't have to stop promo for the birth of her daughter. Judging from the producers lined up for album six, it seems like she's getting back to her old self. She's going to need a label that's behind her music as well though. Brandy is new to this generation in terms of being a superstar. Her last super smash album was in 98. These kids today need to be reintroduced to her. IMO, she has to stop lipping her performances too. Brandy can sing and kills studio recordings. If she wants the respect of being a great vocalist in this generation she's got to do it without the extra shit. She's not doing dance routines on stage so there is no reason for her to be lipping. She wont grow as a live singer(improving on notes, intonation, endurance, creativity,dynamics, etc...) if she doesn't. Mariah Carey needs to lip because her voice is gone now. Brandy has no business doing it when she's just standing on stage and singing. She's got it in her. She's just got to stop being scared. As for Beyonce, she failed at the BET awards because of song choice. Nobody wanted to see her singing "Ava Maria" in some underwear-ish wedding dress when it was suppose to be about MJ? WTF? The girl can sing her ass off. Her music could use more work, but she's got some great songs in the mix of her last three solo albums. Still no classic album though. She shut down the Grammys in 04 singing "Dangerously in Love", shut down the the first dance with Pres. and Firs Lady Obama singing "At last" She's more known for dancing and singing, but the chick can stand flat foot and blow too. She just has to do more of that as she continues to grow in order to balance out the respect in both areas. Nobody can sing and dance like her right now. She's hyped because she's considered the full package, with a great voice, looks and dance ability to a certain extent(she's no Janet lol). As I said earlier, her music needs some work overall though. If she ever does a classic album, some people are going to kill themselves because it's going to take her to another level, period lol.

Beyonce NOT dancing on stage,

Beyonce NOT dancing on stage, is like Al Sharpton without a perm. The 2 go hand in hand. I myself, cannot imagine her not booty poppin in her stage shows. She has to shake that money maker. That is what she is known for. I doubt very seriously her tours would be as successful if she just stood in front of a mic and song for 2 hours.

CF98: True but Brandy at

CF98: True but Brandy at least didn’t have to shake her booty like Beyonce does to sell records Brandy had a better voice(although Monica’s voice was better than both of them)I think the fact Brandy isn’t considered sexy or doesn’t make it a point to sell sex like so many artists today is what’s ruining her. I think the musical aspect of her career is done. She could however go into producing etc instead that would be better for her. She tries in the AFRODISIAC era and flop .SO STOP AND LEAVE BEY ALONE FOR ONCE.THANK U

Nobody wanted to see a bunch of people doing boring as ballads especially if the didn’t pertain to MJ. She’s known for being talented. Ciara shaking that ass an it most definitely ain’t helping her sale records. Hell Mariah or Whitney ain’t even selling or singing how se use to. Mariah let Beyonce’s “I Am Sasha..Fierce” out sale her “E=MC2″. They have to switch it up or get lost.

ybfcommenter: it’s amazing

ybfcommenter: it’s amazing how manipulative and exploitative these record companies are they encourage artists to abandon their core audience and sound because that’s not commercially appealing. they also fail to promote their artists with a multi-pronged advertising campaign, like interviews, magazine spreads, late night appearances and the like. and when album sales do not meet expectations in part because of the label half-hearted effort they drop the artists. collectively speaking, artists should ban together and implement some changes in the industry. too many artists end up drug addicted, poor, and alone after they’ve made their labels and managers millions. it’s sad and quite unfair Record companies are like any other business. They are to reduce debt and make money for their stockholders. This not the 1950 or 1960's when artists didn't know anything about general business practices alot of former Motown acts didn't become wealthy or even middle class. If an artists does not understand how record company work then that is their fault. Artisits have to learn about royalities, advances, marketing, management, percentage points. The truth is some artists are just want the shallow, materical stuff they see in magazines and on BET. They are content if their video is aired on BET,MTV or they invited to Piddy's party This explains the ones who sign with Bad Boy even though everyone knows that the only career Piddy nutures is his own(that mean Cassie too) BTW: Brandy will be fine because she have good investments and good business deals made for her.

Chrissette, Keri and others would kill have that. I don't know why everyone's hating on Ciara(and Bey) for Brandy getting dropped. She's doing her and her singles still sell. I don't think Brandy shoulda gotten dropped though. I hope she bounces back.

She has mad producers making sure she shelves out at least 5 top 10 singles on the Billboard Charts. True RiRi is getting attention now because of the CB fiasco…but like all things in life-it will come to pass. Rihanna will be ok even if she doesn’t sell another album..Jay-Z is gonna protect his protege. RiRi will stay paid in the game with her..endorsements, tours and I really think she’s gonna go into fashion..CUZ THE WOMAN CAN DRESS HER ASS OFF!!!! I don’t know why Ri has soo many haters…but I for one have nothing but love for her and I’ll support her to the bitter end…GO RIRI!! I hope she goes into fashion.. I like her dress game wayyyyyyyyyyy more than her vocal ability.. and what is she techno? (please stop the music? / no! please stop hurting my damn ears!

You sound beyond ignorant, I am wondering if you know this. Ummmm....>Brandy WAS R&B in the 90's, had 2 tv shows, a songwriter, right ow getting paid royalties for Moesha being in syndication on The N, and more. Brandy was respectful and Sonya did not let her grind or show her body at a young age, Sonya kept them in church, and they are a tight family. I am appalled that you would put a black female down who actually paved the way for many young R&B artist in a respectful way. Brandy had a kid yes in her 20's out of wedlock but your acting holier than thou like you dont know any females with the same,

Truth: This has got to be a BIG FAT LIE!!! Why brandy of all people? Why not Rihanna’s not singing a**, she isn’t doing anything but street modeling and is not in the studio right now. At least Brandy came out with a cd last year . Rihanna only made more sells of her GGGB because of that Cb mess, sympathy. I personal think rihanna was going to get dropped soon, but after the Cb mess she got to stay because the the increase in cd sells. Every Brandy cd has been on point, human was a bit different but after listening to it a couple times more I found it to be a jem. All of Brandy’s cd are that way, because they are so good we have been force feed that garbage techo, T-pain mess everyone is doing now, that when someone like Brandy’s music comes alone when ten to forget what REAL music sounds like. Brandy didn’t dumb down her music and the records company couldn’t take it. I blame the record company if this is true, they didn’t promote Our B-Rocka Brandy right, if they had she would have more album sells. Look at Rihanna she finally got promoted right on her 4th cd GGGB and look where she is, it took her 4 cd’s and a drastic image change to do that though. Brandy is the real deal and the record is Stupid to have let a Jem like Brandy go, granting this is true which I pray isn’t. I disagree-Rihanna is on her 4th album and has always been consistant. She's working on her album and I guarantee it will be a hit. She has mad producers making sure she shelves out at least 5 top 10 singles on the Billboard Charts. True RiRi is getting attention now because of the CB fiasco...but like all things in life-it will come to pass. Rihanna will be ok even if she doesn't sell another album..Jay-Z is gonna protect his protege. RiRi will stay paid in the game with her..endorsements, tours and I really think she's gonna go into fashion..CUZ THE WOMAN CAN DRESS HER ASS OFF!!!! I don't know why Ri has soo many haters...but I for one have nothing but love for her and I'll support her to the bitter end...GO RIRI!!

Michelle: @ Just,Umm I

Michelle: @ Just,Umm I thought you were supposed to be able to state your own opinion on this page. Like I said I’m not bothering Ciara and Beyonce. I guess people just want to hear what they want to hear. And just because someone goes platinum doesn’t mean their music is good. I know damn well majority people on this site doesn’t have Taylor Swifts album and thinks she talentless but the chick is 4 times platinum. I’m done. Too sensitive! LOL! and i listen to taylor her music is good.

Um it ain't the recession.

Um it ain't the recession. Ray Jay don't have a problem making money pimpin' Hos. Our society has changed. If you ain't selling your body people ain't buying. I bet if Brandy had a sex tape out her CD sales would climb. She should take the same advice Jamie Foxx gave Miley Cyrus...oh wait. Miley is fucking RICH & WHITE.

Thats what Brandy gets

Thats what Brandy gets because she was talking smack about Beyonce to Kelly and then she went and signed with Beyonce's husband to manage her. I actually like Brandy but these artist (all of the) need to be more creative and make really good music. I think RocNation would have whored her style out and thats not Brandy.

Nunya: Yall must realize,

Nunya: Yall must realize, Brandy is still getting paid off of moesha and the parkers. Some of yall must not have read the article she did for vibe years ago. she gets a percentage of the parkers, thats how countess was able to get out of her contract from moesha. Oh Brandys mom was making sure her daughters future earnings was correct. And just because a person is not in the spotlight like they was before dont equate to them not having money. go a long way, if done correctly. I agree--If these celebs are smart--then they should have an accountant who can manage their money and find ways for them to invest and make money for themselves. The music game is never promised. I Chris Brown has a solid team behind him, cuz if he's spending money stupidly and mis-managing his money..he gonna end up doing a reality show like Hammer and Flava Flav. Album sales don't pay the bills anymore...its tours, endorsements, investments...etc.etc..
