is it me…
or has brandy been acting a little “strange” as of late?
i swear social media has ruined most for me.
so brandy went and allegedly compared her record label to slavery.
this is what she said via tmz:
Brandy claims the contract she signed with Chameleon Entertainment is like a ball and chain, and she has filed a lawsuit to break the shackles.
The singer has been signed to the record label since 2011 and claims in the lawsuit they promised her hundreds of thousands of dollars in production costs to make her albums. Brandy says that didn’t happen after the first album.
Brandy claims the label actually tried to prevent her from recording and releasing new music, which she says put her career in jeopardy.
According to the lawsuit, obtained by TMZ, the record label tried to pressure her into giving up her non-recording avenues of including concerts and Broadway shows.
Brandy’s lawyer says in the lawsuit, “Brandy Norwood’s story is ‘Kesha Redux, but without the sex.” As you know, Kesha also referred to her contract as slavery.
Brandy filed a similar lawsuit in L.A. back in March … the latest lawsuit was filed in NYC.
She wants out of the contract and hundreds of thousands of dollars she claims they owe her for pay or play fees.
well this is what the label responded via tmz…
Brandy’s record label just clapped back, saying the singer has no business comparing her contract to slavery … since it’s been more than a decade since she dropped a hit.
A rep for Chameleon Entertainment CEO Breyon Prescott tells TMZ … Brandy’s allegations are a desperate ploy to drum up publicity instead of facing facts — her best days are behind her. The rep says Breyon took a risk “signing an artist that hasn’t had a chart single success since the early 2000’s.”
Chameleon’s rep also believes Brandy made a bonehead PR move by making the slavery comparison due to racial tensions across the country right now.
We’re told Brandy and her lawyer reviewed the contract before signing, so Chameleon finds it odd she’s now crying foul.
so i’m just gonna be 100 with it.
brandy is one of my favorite singers from the 90s.
i have pretty much all her music and some remixes.
brandy’s vocals on her tracks were literally sent from jesus.
i enjoy a brandy record…
…but brandy hasn’t been making the best moves with her career.
it’s bad when her brother is more popular than her.
whenever her singles drop,
there is literally little to no promotion for them.
when her stans find a track they love,
instead of her promoting and releasing a quick video,
it never sees the light of day.
now i don’t know if that’s the label or brandy,
but i think she is still living in that “90s” frame of mind.
there was no social media so it was basically radio and music videos.
it’s a different ball game in a “beyonce” and “rihanna” world.
i do think brandy’s time has come and gone.
these days are far from the 90s when she ruled supreme.
she doesn’t have that “machine” behind her as she use to.
she needs to also stop ranting on her social media like a crazy person.
go watch her snapchat and you’ll be like:
if she does break this contract,
she could as well go independent.
at this point,
she should be making eps.
remember when she tried to rap?
what happened to that?
the days of her selling out venues might be over.
that’s okay tho!
she paid her dues and established herself as an “icon”.
brandy may need to start over.
lowkey: and why is she not with a bigger named record label?
and who the hell is “slayana”?
