Biography

Whether she was singing pop-friendly urban soul or acting in her own family-oriented sitcom, Brandy's winningly wholesome persona helped catapult her to stardom during her teenage years. She scored the longest-running number one female duet in chart history (teamed with Monica on "The Boy Is Mine"), a testament to her mainstream appeal, and she spent several years as the title ...

Product Description

Afrodisiac is sensuous, soulful, even a little gritty, an album that showcases Brandy's passionate voice and announces in no uncertain terms that she's all grown up and knows what she wants. The hot first single, "Talk About Our Love," was produced by and features Kanye West.

Amazon.com

After a breakup, childbirth, and a reality show, the one-time teen star finds herself growing up a little more on Afrodisiac. While this isn't a concept album--the songs aren't ordered as such--it's filled with the frustrations and pleasures of Brandy's past few years. At the same time, her vocals are richer than ever, reaching a Blige-like level of expression on "I Tried" and "Who is She 2 U." Timbaland's production on nine cuts anchors the disc; he even makes the title track's sampled baby, a link to his classic work on Aaliyah's "Are You That Somebody," belong. The biggest triumph, though, is "Talk About Our Love," pop-soul from Kanye West that could come straight from the summer of '74, even including his rap. Further release comes with Timba's "Sadiddy," an anthemic celebration of being out on the town with a carload of friends. The girl may be older, but she still knows how to have fun. --Rickey Wright

Customer Reviews

Brandy's voice is smooth and beautiful and fits each song perfectly.
Junette C. Hew
All the songs are remarkably well written, the beats are really good they weren't forced and the producers didn't try to do too much with the beats.

Buy this album and if you want to listen to great music every single day pick up "all" of her previous albums you will not be disappointed.

A decade into her career, Brandy shows she still has what it takes to entertain fans and casual listeners alike on her latest album "Afrodisiac" which debuted at #3 on Billboard's album chart in July.

Although she only co-wrote one of the album's fifteen tracks; the eye-opening "Finally," it is certain that most of the material on this album was written with the singer specifically in mind. Take for instance the defiant opening track "Who I Am."

"Just for the sake of my daughter/I tried to stick to the plan/But I had to get rid of the weight/On my fourth finger, left hand/To everybody listening/Sorry if you're disappointed/See the life I chose was only what/I thought I wanted/Nothing's picture perfect/Looks can be deceiving."

Even though a great deal of the subject matter is deep and reflects the burdens of the singer's life from the past few years, this does not prevent "Afrodisiac" from being stuffed with potential hit singles. Although the lead single "Talk About Our Love" featuring Kanye West failed to become a smash hit despite a catchy chorus and delightfully retro vibe, "Who Is To U," could easily become the disc's first smash hit. If the original does not ignite at radio it is almost guaranteed that the forthcoming remix planned featuring the ever-overrated Usher most certainly will.

In addition, the mellow romanticism of "Say You Will" is as catchy as it is charming, and "Turn It Up," where Brandy tips her hat to Timbaland, who produced the majority of the disc, are both the kinds of songs that should find themselves getting overplayed at radio. The title track, where Timbaland samples his own production of the late Aaliyah's "Are You That Somebody" and "Necessary" are also worthy of honorable mention.

Brandy aka B-Rocka is one of the best female aritist around. She has always been my favorite R&B artist since her self-Titled debut album "Brandy" dropped in 1994. Nearly a decade later, her voice, her sound, her swagger has only improved. Her voice is like a treasure, once you've discover it, you'll never want to forget it. All of her albums (1994's Brandy, 1998's Never say Never, 2002's Full Moon & 2004's Afrodisac) are certified classics in my book, expecially Afrodisiac. Every song on the album is soulful, some great dance tracks and some really relaxing R&B slow cuts. Brandy does not get the credit she deserves, which is why Afrodisiac didn't get alot of radio play and/or press. This album should be 2x Platinum if it's not already.

My Favorite Tracks:

1. Who Is She 2 U?

2. How I Feel

3. Afrodisiac

4. Saddidy

5. Where I Wanna Be ft. T.I.

6. Come As You Are

7. Turn It Up

8. Talk About Our Love ft. Kanye West

Brandy's fourth album AFRODISIAC is in my opinion her best cd. The grooves are tight, and it definately feels like her most personal. She got away from working with Darkchild and brought in some new producers for a new sound. While vocally she hasn't always been the strongest, she always sounds nice regardless. This album shows us a more mature Brandy. Some highlights include "Who I Am", "Turn It Up", "Come As You Are", "Talk About Our Love", "Who Is She 2 U" and more. An underrated R&B album.

After listening to "Afrodisiac", singer/actor Brandy's 4th studio effort, I can't help feeling sorry for her. This is one of many stellar R&B CDs that commercially make it nowhere due to lack of promotion or just flat-out neglect on most of the public's part. "Afrodisiac" is more than just an artistic statement - it is the sound of a maturer, stronger, vocally more powerful and emotional Brandy taking risks with her music while still remaining real with it. Once again, reigning super-producer Timbaland is the main person to thank for delivering with the production on 9 of the album's 15 tracks. Other producers include Kanye West, Organized Noise & others. Sean Garrett's pensive genius also blesses this record with spectacular results.

While Brandy may have only lent her actual helping hand to one of the album's 15 tracks in terms of songwriting, Brandy not only sings the material with a lived-in feel, but the material itself was obviously related to her in the 1st place. "Who I Am" is an emotional ballad where Brandy finds strength after a bad relationship with lyrics equally compelling as her actual voice. Album track favourite "I Tried" is a heavy-hearted ballad where heavy synthesizers, faint guitar strings & closing violins emphasize Brandy's emotional struggle with an unfaithful lover whose misdeeds she tries to neglect, but in the end, refuses to put up with (in other words, she eventually leaves). "Finally" is a ballad that, while lighter with the production, is equally passionate and emotional with the same purpose of making the right decisions & leaving a bad relationship.
