Brandy and Daniel Caesar Hit the Studio

Could producer Darhyl “DJ” Camper be the mastermind behind a Brandy and Daniel Caesar duet? According to Instagram, yes. The newly married musician shared studio moments on Thursday (April 19) as he had “revival” with “The Vocal Bible” and “Get You” crooner.

We haven’t heard much solo music from Brandy besides “Beggin and Pleading” and 2012’s Two Eleven, which deserved much more. Back in 2015, Camper revealed he and Brandy were working on a five-track EP. “It’s something refreshing. I’m not putting Brandy in the club. You won’t hear Brandy in the strip club or in elements like that,” said Camper. “When you think of Brandy now, think of stadium status or arenas. Think of like the movie 300 with the Romans. It’s going to be big and classic. That’s what I’m having her around this time around. If you think Coldplay is big, watch what Brandy does.”

As the new kid on the block, Caesar is enjoying his stroll around the music business. He recently released the music video for “Best Part” featuring H.E.R. and even charted on Billboard’s Hot 100 chart with his single “Get You” featuring Kali Uchis.

We can’t wait to hear more about this collaboration from this musical trinity.

Revival.

Chloe x Halle Dazzle on April Music Issue of NYLON Magazine

Chloe x Halle is living their best lives right now. The sister duo graces the cover of NYLON’s April music issue.

On the stylish cover, Chloe sports a pink Tibi suit while Halle rocks a Burberry hoodie and blazer. Throughout the music issue, the Parkwood Entertainment signees share advice from Beyoncé, their message to young girls, penning “Warrior” for A Wrinkle in Time and more.

Last month, Chloe x Halle released their debut album The Kids Are Alright, which received rave reviews. The album opened at No. 19 on the Billboard Top R&B Albums chart. No matter where the The Kids Are Alright debuted on Billboard, the album is still a must listen.

See photos and experts from Chloe x Halle’s NYLON issue below.

On advice from Beyonce…

‘Let the world catch up to you, because what you’re doing is outstanding, and it’s needed in the world right now’

On overall message in their music…

I think we just want to let other girls know that your feelings are valid and, as a human being, you’re powerful and valid and beautiful.

On penning “Warrior” from A Wrinkle in Time…

We watched the trailer for A Wrinkle in Time, the word that stood out to us was ‘warrior.’ And we kind of just wrote a love letter to ourselves as young girls and what we want to be, and it came out to be ‘Warrior’
