Sunday Selection: Brandy - "Right Here (Departed)"

It’s been almost four years

since R&B sensation Brandy released any music. Has anyone missed

her? I don’t know about you, but I have. Brandy has always been unique

in her own way - whether she’s singing, acting or modeling. I must

say that I’m glad that she’s making a comeback. There’s no need

to revisit the ups and down that Brandy has experienced in the last

few years, but it’s refreshing to know that she hasn’t let those

trials and tribulations hold her down.

This past week, I had the pleasure

of meeting Brandy for the first time. She looked great! She was all

smiles, very very humble and thin as a rail, but that’s ok we all

know she doesn’t eat any meat!

But anyway, I got to hear her

new single "Right Here (Departed)." Initially, I wasn’t sure about

the song. Brandy has had some hits over the years, and even though this

song is decent, I don’t think I’m going to put it in her category

of “hits.” “I Wanna Be Down,” “Baby,” “Best Friend,”

“The Boy is Mine,” “Almost Doesn’t Count,” “Full Moon,”

and “Have You Ever” - those were all hits, but this song is missing

the same staying power. 

I love the message in “Right

Here (Departed)” which speaks about people supporting one another

when times get tough, similar to her relationship between her and her

fans. In my opinion, it comes across as more of an album cut or third

single as opposed to the first single after a four year hiatus. But

then again, I guess the song portrays Brandy’s true feelings, so she

wanted to come back expressing just that. What do you think - Hot or

Not? Brandy is set to drop a new

album titled Human in November, but prior to then, I’m hoping

she’ll drop another single that’s bangin’!Until next week, y’all enjoy

this week’s Sunday Selection – “Right Here (Departed)”
