Video Fab: Brandy's "Departed"

Brandy debuted her brand new video for "Departed" tonight. It's been a minute since she's really been on the scene with new music and videos. And it looks like B-Rocka is officially back. Tia Mowry's husband Cory Hardricht is also featured in the vid. But back to Brandy, can we get a hand clap for her wig crypt keeper?

i loooove brandy. i'm so glad

i loooove brandy. i'm so glad she's back cause i've loved this chick since the sittin up in my room and baby baby days when i was in like the 4th grade. BUT i do think brandy needs to come harder with the song if she wants to take OVA. obviously her loyal fan base will support her, but come on b-rocka come a lil harder and cant nobody stop u. yayy brandyyy!!!

I agree that Brandy makes

I agree that Brandy makes timeless music. I also agree that this song has a positive message. HOWEVER, I wouldnt have chosen this as the first song to release. I'm sure the album will be fire tho. I don't know what the strategy is for her album and this career, but it appears that they/she is not trying to capture a new, younger audience (because Brandy is no spring chicken in this game with all these younger artists coming out daily) but it seems she is trying to maintain her old audience. I like the look I always thought she had afro-asian features and looked nice when she played around with that. The teeth do look a bit big, but I've never been a fan of veneers. The only criticism I have is that Michael Jackson stance and neck roll with the arms out. What is that Brandy? Overall, I'm excited to see she's back and i'm definitely going to cop the album when it drops.

[quote comment="192242"]Brandy looks fab and sounds great. She doesn't have to stand up to Bey. Bey has to stand up to her. Brandy is the legend with a music catalog that has and will continue to stand the test of time. Bey is cool. But , Bey is of the moment like fast food. When she's out of sight her music is out of mind. Nothing much of her catalogue is worth listening too beyond the life of the cd. It's all very time stamped, whereas Brandy, Mary J, Tamia,Janet, Mariah, Whitney's, etc... music is timeless. Maybe, Bey will one day get out of get rich quick mode and really use her talents to put a body of work out that is of substance, not just geared for the top of the charts or big sales. I think she will mature to that level....one day. I hope it will be with the next cd. I do want to own something of Bey's that I won't be too embarrassed to play five years down the road. Right now I don't own anything of hers because I am waiting for her to deliver quality over quantity.[/quote] AMEN!!!

Ummm's picture

I have always love brandy ,

I have always love brandy , LIKE YA'LL SAID THE BEAT IS GOOD BUT MOST OF ALL THE CONTENT OF THE SONG IS DEEP ( HAS MEANING). ON A DIFFERENT NOTE, I READ YOUR POSTS AND I HAVEN'T SEEN ANYONE MAKE MENTION OF THE VENEERS. WHAT'S UP WITH THAT , IT'S NOT LIKE SHES 50 CENT WHO NEEDS IT , SHE HAD CUTE SMALL TEETH WHICH SUITED HER , NOW HER VENEERS ARE SO BIG AND THEY ARE SO OBVIOUS, CANT EVEN SEE HER GUMS!!! SORRY I AM NOT A DENTIST BUT SINCE I HAVEN'T SEEN HER ON TV FOR LONG TIME I JUST REALLY WANTED TO FIND THE OLD NATURAL (BRAIDS AND ALL) BRANDY I HAVE COME TO KNOW. ABOUT B , THEY ARE SO DIFFERENT. THEY ARE NIGHT AND DAY. BEYONCE IS COMPARABLE TO TINA TURNER WHILE BRANDY IS WHITNEY. I LOVE BEYONCE BUT TRUTH BE TOLD. I WOULD BUY BEYONCE IF I WANTED TO DANCE AND ENJOY A NICE BEAT AND LYRICS. AND I WOULD BUY BRANDY IF WANTED DEPTH WITH TRUE VOCAL.

There are people that are

There are people that are young now and don't even know anything about Brandy..many people think that the music out now is real music..It is not...Give Brandy her props...It used to be Aaliyah, Monica, and Brandy...Brandy was here before Beyonce..she was here before Ashanti....she has substance...substance is whats missing on the radio now
Candice's picture

I'm about to shut the haters

I'm about to shut the haters down...Brandy is the real deal...She doesn't have to ho herself like Beyonce...Brandy's music has substance...She reaches all people..Brandy doesn't have to be about things to get her point across...The only thing that concerns me is that most singers change after awhile..I don't want Brandy to change her lady like ways...She needs to really shut people down everybody with this new album thats coming out...Her last album was incredible and many people didn't buy it..It wasn't promoted like it should of been promoted...Those of you that bought it..know it was good...Welcome Back Brandy!!!
Candice's picture

I love Brandy, I don't care

I love Brandy, I don't care what anybody has to say about her. She is the original diva. How many of these other chicks in the game had their own TV show, and basically branded braids back in the day. Not to mention she has shared the screen with some of the fines brothas, including Usher, Merlin Santana, Fredro Starr, Mekhi Pfifer, just to name a few. So you know what "HI HATERS."

First let me say i agree with everyone....love seeing a black sista get up and do their thing without comprimising themselves *cough Ciara cover cough* J/K but do ya thang Brandy. HOWEVER....... still trying to figure out where that mole came from..im hoping she really did have a pimple to cover up and she isnt trying to be like some other chicas who try to create a "beauty mark". did anyone notice her teeth looked a little....horse-ish..no?? ok bye....*runs to avoid flack*

LOL. I'm not a huge Bey fan,

LOL. I'm not a huge Bey fan, and I understand if some people may not like her, but why do the people who hate her keep bringing her up. lol. And how can you say that Beyonce is the "here and now" when that old ass girl has been around for 10 years! I know her songs are not as chill/deep as "Almost Doesn't Count" or Full Moon, but that I think that's the whole point. Brandy is the type of artist that you play while youre cleaning the house or driving to work...Beyonce has never wanted to be that as much. She does come out with a ballad every now and then...and I have to say (maybe I'm alone), but I STILL play "Me, myself, and I", "Emotions", AND "Yes" (and that's not even counting the Destiny's Child songs "If" and "Cater 2 u" are cute too) I agree that "Get me Bodied", "Dangerously In Love", "Check on It" or even "Bugaboo" are not lyrically genius songs, but when they come on, they always take me back to some fun summer from the past..and thats saying something. Whatever.

[quote comment="192295"]Brandy just has something that none of the others do. I don't know what it is. I listen to "Afrodisiac", and I know why it was rated among the top 10 albums of the year by so many critics. She is a class act. I'm so glad she's come through what she went through and is now back with more brilliant music. Go ahead, Dark Child!![/quote] I was thinking the exact thing, yes yes she's back with Dark Child now they can crack out the hits. I loved the song and she look beautiful I'm feelin it a LOT. Go Brandy!!!

Glad she's back but why would

Glad she's back but why would she film in the midst of a parking lot, freeway and traffic? It only serves to remind everyone of her accident. Or is that the idea

I think this song will have

I think this song will have to grow on me. I like Brandy. I'm glad she's back. Never Say Never was my cd. And I'm still mad that someone got me for my original and my bootleg. D@mn sticky fingers!!! Why does everyone have to compare every female singer to Beyonce? Can't they both just live and do what they love to do...SING? I am so sick of all the comparisons. I never have once heard Beyonce go off about anyone else's music; comparing herself to someone else. Let It Go! They are both two talented ladies. Let them do what they do.

I love it! I'm so excited

I love it! I'm so excited she's back with the hotness and can't wait until her album drops. She has always been one of my favorites besides the late Aaliyah. Her music is always good, nice to groove too, and she never fails to have a song with a real message, just like this song. She is a true artist!

How did Beyonce get injected

How did Beyonce get injected into a conversation about Brandy. Brandy is in a class of her own that existed before Beyonce and will exist afterward. Acting, singing and writing. Remember Moesha. Beyonce would love to be there. Making more money from things will be Bey's claim to fame. However, money at the price of kicking folks off the bus is not that great at all. Now the song is interesting, however I am tuned out to sensitive songs now because everything is about a beat. I like the video and concept but I need to work on the song before I add it to my play list.

I'm soooo happy Brandy is

I'm soooo happy Brandy is back!!! I missed her so much. This is just a reminder that R&B music is not dead. Love the song, I think it has to grow on some people. With all the things she has went through and being out of the game for 4 years, she will definitly be bringing something good. And I still say people slept on Full Moon. Love you Brandy!!!:)

dang, is it like the end of

dang, is it like the end of the world to mention beyonce without it FIRST being mentioned in the post? where is that written? tasha got an edit about that on the side? who the hell cares if someone brings up beyonce and she is not mentioned in this post? ppl act like beyonce's name cost just to drop. like, how dare u say it! man, get outta here with that mess. ppl can say it whenever they want. it's not about comparing to beyonce on a singing level moreso chart comparison cause no matter what music beyonce puts out, good or bad, it will sell cause she sells. but w/ other artist like brandy, tamia, monica and the likes that can actually sing their a$$es off--they don't get the top of chart status like beyonce--so my opinion on ppl bringing up whollier than thou beyonce is that they wish it would be a chart topper like the way a beyonce song would shoot up, but this actually has substance. no knock to Beyonce.

I was thinking people might

I was thinking people might think that was trying to play God in the video, but I'm gonna have to say that she like some sort of Guardian Angel. And those who believe know that Guardian Angels can be Family and friends, or even perfect strangers. I mean, I can't imagine Brandy thinking THAT high of herself to compare to God, so I'm going "Guardian Angel". [quote comment="192318"]Love me some Brandy. I Love the song, but is she supposed to be God doing all the things she says in the song? How bout we leave all the saving to Christ. Not a great 1st single but a great Christian song. :-D[/quote]

Who cares if Beyonce's coming

Who cares if Beyonce's coming out with a new CD. It would be a very sad day when we as consumers only had the choice of 1 artist per slot to support. I always loved Brandy's music, maybe not her personality so much though. There's guarrantee that Beyonce's CD is going to be any good either. Their being distributed basically through the same label, so lets just hope for the best for Brandy, or better yet go out buy what she's putting out.
