Don’t Call It A Comeback: Brandy’s “Two Eleven” Debuts At Number 3, And Number 1 On R&B Charts
Just when people, Brandy included, were ready to count this lady out, it seems that B-Rocka’s time in the music industry might not be over just yet. The singer’s new album, Two Eleven, which was released last week, pulled in about 65,000 copies to land at number three behind country singer Jason Aldean’s Night Train album, which took the number one spot, and Mumford & Son’s Babel at number two. Before you laugh at the numbers she pushed, you have to remember that the music industry is nowhere near where it used to be, what with all the bootlegging and what not, so not that many people, even some of the big names, are pushing the highest of sales anymore. And for someone who has hasn’t seen the top 10 since Afrodisiac in 2004, it’s safe to say that homegirl has come a long way–or hell, long enough. The album’s sales not only gave her the third spot in the top 200, but it also gave her the number one spot on the R&B charts. Her song “Put It Down” featuring Breezy is also number three on the R&B charts behind Miguel’s “Adorn” and the oh-so-classy “Pop That” by French Montana. The album is actually pretty good (according to our deputy editor, all of her albums are bangers, they’ve just received little exposure. I went MIA after Full Moon), especially my favorites, “Wildest Dreams and “Slower.” So don’t sleep on it or her folks! And if you’re extra cheap, at least check it out on Spotify.
Does that mean Brandy is officially back? I’ll leave that up to you to decide, but after all her ups and downs over the last few years, and to see how grateful she is to be back in the game, I won’t count her out. Congrats!
Do you think she’s back? And what do you think of the album?
