Brandy inks global partnership with Motown Records

R&B star working on new album

Making major moves to kick off the summer, GRAMMY Award-winning R&B icon, songwriter, producer, actress, and entrepreneur Brandy inks partnership with Motown Records. To celebrate the big news she just delivered a showstopping performance of “Rather Be” as part of the first-of-its-kind performance and content series launched by Motown Records and COLORSxSTUDIOS in honor of Black Music Month. Her instantly recognizable vocals take flight on this fan favorite from 2020’s B7.

“Brandy is one of the most prolific voices in the history of music,” Motown Records CEO & Chairwoman Ethiopia Habtemariam shares of the partnership. “Her contribution to R&B continues to influence newcomers and contemporaries around the world. We are ecstatic to welcome Brandy to the Motown family and eager to join her in making musical history.”

Brandy is currently putting the finishing touches on her anxiously awaited eighth full-length offering and Motown Records debut, coming very soon.

Brandy has defined the sound, style, and soul of modern R&B. Throughout her incredible career thus far, she has earned a GRAMMY Award and sold over 40 million albums worldwide, cementing her as an indisputable and inimitable global icon. At the same time, she has appeared in dozens of television series and films, including famously starring in Moesha as the lead character, garnering a NCAAP Image Award. Speaking to her impact, artists such as H.E.R., Drake, Erykah Badu, and John Frusciante of Red Hot Chili Peppers have publicly cited her as an influence, and Daniel Caesar duetted with her on the hit “Love Again” from 2019’s Case Study 01. Meanwhile, her sophomore opus Never Say Never has notably moved 16 million units worldwide to date. Most recently, B7 bowed at No. 12 on the Billboard Top 200.
