Brandy has been more than generous with new music, especially when collaborating with other artists. Following her recent duet with Gallant (“Dynamite”), the Vocal Bible teams with Nigerian singer-songwriter Tiwa Savage for “Somebody’s Son.” It appears on Savage’s newly released Water & Garri.
In the Segun Michael Ajayi-produced track, Savage and Brandy, amid run-ins with heartbreak, remain optimistic that the perfect man will find them and treat them like deserving queens.
For Savage, it’s a fulfilled fantasy to have Brandy featured on the new project, saying in a recent Apple Music interview that she’s “the reason why I started singing, literally.”
She continued, “As a kid, just listening to ‘I [Wanna] To Be Down,’ every interview I’ve ever had, she’s my favorite, my all-time, my mentor, my everything. And I’ve been trying to work with her for years. It was a dream of mine. And when it happened this time, it’s not even just music, we connected like sisters. She’s someone that I speak to literally every other day. It’s beyond my expectation.”
As previously mentioned, Brandy has been all-in on collaborations recently. She joined Gallant on his Neptune project, partnered with Camper for “Sleep,” and revamped b7’s gem “No Tomorrow” with Ty Dolla $ign.
She’s also gearing up for the ABC series premiere of Queens. The hip-hop drama airs on October 19 at 10 p.m. EST.
Brandy’s b7 album was named the best R&B album of 2020 by Rated R&B. Read why here.
