Brandy: 2012 Album Preview

Title: TBA | Release Date: May

Initially planned for a March release, Brandy's yet-untitled first album through her new deal with Chameleon/RCA (made official last August) is now scheduled to arrive in May. "Fans have been patient with me, tweeting and asking when the album is coming," says Brandy ( @4everbrandy), whose most recent album, "Human," arrived on Epic and peaked at No. 13 on the Billboard 200 in 2008. "So the pressure is on. But this is my chance to get it right this time: to make sure the music and setup are together. I'm in good hands now with my new label home and creatively. I feel very confident going into 2012."

Judging by the depth of the creative collaborators onboard-a lineup that includes such marquee producers as Jim Jonsin, Bangladesh, Danja and Hit-Boy plus go-to songwriters Rico Love, Sean Garrett, Ester Dean, hot newcomer Frank Ocean and Chris Brown-the singer has every reason to feel confident. "It's definitely the R&B Brandy with this album, from dance songs to bang-out ballads," the singer says of the project.
