    Brandy Gets Love From Kanye, Timbaland on New Album
    From her new boyfriend Quentin Richardson of the Los Angeles Clippers to producers Kanye West and Timbaland, to a certain critically acclaimed group from Great Britain, Brandy's new album is deeply inspired by the men floating in her circle.

    "It's called Afrodisiac," the singer said last week as she soaked up the sun in beautiful Montego Bay, Jamaica. "It's about love, it's about passion. It's romantic, and that's where I am in my life right now. I really feel love and passion right now."

    Props to the Q-Dog.

    Brandy sings literally about love on her first single, "Talk About Our Love," which was produced by Kanye West ("Whom I love, whom I think is a genius," she says). The love Brandy sings about is so strong that it can't be swayed by busybodies poking into her business. "I swear they got some nerve, spreading what they heard," she laments on the cut. "I can't give them no burn/ I can't be concerned with all that talk/ ... That's my word."

    "We collaborated and we just came up with a great melody," Brandy said of working with West, who also raps on the single. "It's about two people in a relationship where everybody is in and out of their business, which is something that everybody in a relationship goes through."
    Brandy and Kanye play love interests in the song's video. "Kanye is a great person and he's so passionate about his music," she said. "He really believed in this song. He told me this was one of the best songs he's done all year and he really sold it to me: 'Look, you got to do this song.' With that much passion and confidence, I had to do it."

    The other beatmaker in Brandy's life is Timbaland, who replaced Rodney Jerkins as her main producer for the new album. "I needed to change my sound, I wanted to explore my versatility and my creativity and my art," she said about parting ways with Jerkins, who helmed most of her last two LPs. "I wanted to do my own thing, and I've always wanted to work with Timbaland."

    Timbo provided the singer with a plethora of tracks, one of which she holds especially dear.

    "When we hooked up, it was like magic," she gushed. "He let me be me, and I let him be him. One of my favorite songs is called 'Coldplay.' It's definitely inspired by the band Coldplay, whom I love. That song is just raw: It puts me into a position where I am very open and you can hear the struggle and the pain in my voice. It's autobiographical."

    Brandy implied that lyrically, she dove into plenty of firsthand experiences for Afrodisiac's material. "Everything I do has something to do with what I've gone through in my life," she said. "I definitely wanted to incorporate that in my art. I t makes it more real when you add what's been going on in your life in your music. I've grown and I've gone through some things in my life, and I celebrate that, I honor that."

    Afrodisiac is due June 29.

    I can't wait! for this album! Hopefully we'll get a tracklist soon. I love Talk About Our Love so hopefully that gives an indication on what the rest of the album sounds like. What I do know is this:

    The album, which deals with the hardships and triumphs of love and relationships, features 13 tracks, some of which are still subject to change, and has some upbeat tunes.

    Some of the songs that stood out were Talk About Our Love, featuring hot hip-hop artiste Kanye West, Cold Play, Saddidy and How I Feel. While all the songs on the album are good, ranging from the soft Have You Ever to the more racy What About Us, it was too quick a listen to tell which song on the album will be a hit.

    Wow I can't wait for this album now! Not sure if I'll like it as much as Full Moon and Never Say Never, as she did switch producers but we'll have to see
    These foolish games are tearing me apart

    I've been looking for information like that all around the net
    Nice one Honey

    It looks like Kanye is the man everyone wants to work with at the moment.
    I wouldn't call him a genius though :-?

    I'm really looking to this album and the title is cool
    Shame she's changed her font though

    Kanye is apparently working with both Mariah Carey and Jennifer Lopez on their next albums - looks like they're all jumping on the bandwagon!

    I can't wait to hear this album - I quite liked "Full Moon" even though most of my friends thought "Never Say Never" was better. It will be nice to hear Brandy working with some other producers, instead of the same old Jerkins team, because "Full Moon" sounded a bit "samey" after a while.

    I reckon this album will either be a massive hit, or flop totally. I'm hoping it will be a hit!

    It's snippets time (again) ... taken from a recent radio interview where she previewed a few tracks from her "Afrodisiac" album: Come As You Are, Cold Play, Afrodisiac. Links no longer work - scroll down to BBB's posts for the audio.

    I just saw the video on Launch. I'm quite impressed with the song. It's got an old school flavour to it and imo her voice is improving, looking forward to the album!

I had planted in my head a vision of how I wanted the video to be, and thats NOTHING like what I imagined. the video isnt to hott, but the SONG has Potential to be a HUGE HIT. i LOVE the song, and her album comes out on my birthday, what a gift
