Brandy hasn’t given her first interview since the announcement she’s now engaged to love of two years Ryan Press. On the engagement Brandy told People magazine, “It was a spontaneous thing for my fiancé. He just felt it.” Adding, “He worked really hard on the ring. I’m not a big diamond girl, but I really love this diamond he did. It just represents how he feels about me, and I’m really blessed to have someone like him in my life. He’s truly a gift.”
During another interview with Pop Stop TV she says, “I’m very excited. I’m definitely on cloud 11. At one point I gave up on love so to have this feeling and feel like it’s the first time, with the person that I feel like God has created for me to be with is just magical. I want it to stay like this. Every married couple we’ve been meeting [we've been asking] like what’s the secret? Communication is a big one so we’re gonna see what this thing does.”
On Kim and Kanye baby announcement she says, “I am very happy for Kim and happy for Kanye. I was looking at pictures of them online and they just look so happy. I’m really happy for her.”
We reported a few days ago that singer Brandy became engaged to her music executive boyfriend Ryan Press. The couple confirmed the news through a spokesperson saying only, “They are thrilled and happy and Brandy feels this is so right,” via Us magazine.
Now we’ve finally gotten our first glimpse of the singer’s engagement ring. _______READMORE
Brandy has just released a new single, “How High”, as a little gift for her fans around the holidays. And, I must say, it’s a treat. Can I just add how much I love Brandy’s voice. There’s nothing like it. So raspy, passionate and soothing all at the same time. Check out “How High” Below.
Brandy is now engaged to her music executive boyfriend Ryan Press. The couple, who’ve dated for over a year, became engaged over the Christmas holiday and the singer is reportedly thrilled.
Earlier in the year Brandy did an interview with Sister2Sister magazine where she discussed a possible engagement. She says, “I keep hearing about a ring. People keep calling me, hinting to me about it, but I don’t know,” she told the magazine in August. “I’m going to be patient and let it happen and just let it be. . . I guess it will happen when it’s the right time,” reports Us magazine.
She also did an interview with the Wendy Show back in October where she discussed the desire to be married and felt it was unchristian of her and Press to be living together unwed. Guess she finally got her wish.
Brandy has released the official video for “Wildest Dreams”, her second single release off sixth studio album, “Two Eleven”. Check out the video release below.
Last Tuesday, Brandy debuted her new album, “Two Eleven”, to the world. For her first week album sales, Brandy debuts at number 3 on the Billboard 200 with approximately $66.8K albums sold, 66,856 to be exact, according to Hits Daily Double.
Now, some people are surprised by these numbers because, well, it’s Brandy! But don’t be too sad, Brandy was able to garner the #1 album on the R&B Charts!
She arrived on the scene with her self titled album, “Brandy” in 1994. Fast forward 6 albums later and Brandy is number 3 on the charts. A little known fact is that Brandy has never actually had a number one album. Shocking huh? _______READMORE
Brandy is making her promotional rounds for her latest album “Two Eleven” and has been in New York City for the past week. She was spotted wearing a multicolored sweat shirt, white mini-skirt and black boots and she look during a night out on the town. And, she looked absolutely fabulous!
Brandy covers the November issue of Vibe Vixen magazine and in it she dishes on the passing of her idol Whitney Houston, finding love with current beau Ryan Presson, making a her return to music and current album “Two Eleven”, her obsession with Lauren London and more.
On Whitney passing on her birthday, and would she ever do a tribute song:“I don’t think I’m ready for that yet. It’s really about the overall purpose, which is music. I remember her telling me, ‘Nobody can be you so don’t try to be something other than you. Be yourself and stay true to that.’ That was the last thing she said to me. That was the last time I heard her voice. It’s all a spiritual thing to me. The day, the passing, it’s all…

Being opening up to love again, with her beau Ryan:
I couldn’t get it right. I got really close to being married and it didn’t happen. After that, I dated a little bit and it was always something that just wasn’t connecting with love and me. _______READMORE

I think its safe to say that Brandy is definitely back in the game. Today Brandy’s 6th album, “Two Eleven,” was officially released and she is definitely giving R&B a much needed boost. From beginning to the end, Brandy is staying true to herself with this new CD. For me, Brandy had always been the “hopeless romantic” when it comes to her music. “Two Eleven” is no different. Using her signature raspy tone, Brandy tells a story of being in love throughout the CD. Showing her mature and sexual side with songs like, “Slower”, “Put it Down”, “Can You Hear Me Know”, Brandy keeps a clean yet alluring demeanor. She also stays true to get R&B roots with songs like “No Such Thing as Too Late”, “Without You”(my favorite), and “Scared of Beautiful”, where she discusses love and being afraid to love again. _______READMORE
