Brandy, MC Lyte, Yo-Yo And Queen Latifah Reunite To Perform “I Wanna Be Down (Remix)” At BET Hip Hop Awards
Did you tune into last night’s BET Hip Hop Awards?
Don’t worry, I won’t judge if you didn’t, because I only got to check out the last 30 minutes of the show for myself. But what I was lucky enough to catch before it went off was Brandy reuniting with MC Lyte, Yo-Yo and Queen Latifah for a performance of one of my favorite songs, “I Wanna Be Down (Remix).” All four ladies reunited earlier in the year on “The Queen Latifah Show” to talk about the story behind the creation of the beloved remix, but they recently took the stage to perform the jam for its 20th anniversary.
Brandy looked flawless as usual, jamming in a flannel ensemble with big hair and thigh-high boots as brother Ray J fanned out in the audience, while Queen Latifah, MC Lyte and Yo-Yo reminded everyone that black does not crack.
Speaking on the performance on Instagram, Brandy said “Dear God, thank you for this moment!” And Yo-Yo said “20 years of sisterhood and great music. Love you ladies @mclyte @4everbrandy @queenlatifah and the greatest producer @keithcrouch wish you could of been here. We lite the stage up!!”
The ladies definitely slayed the stage. Check out their performance below:
