Brandy's Back To "Talk About Our Love"

03/25/04

NEW SINGLE FEATURES KANYE WEST
NEW ALBUM DUE JUNE 22ND

Atlantic Records has announced the return of Brandy with the release of "Talk About Our Love," the first single from her eagerly awaited new album. Produced and co-written by Kanye West, who is also featured on the track, the single is shipping to radio in early April. Tomorrow, March 26th, Brandy fans will be able to hear the single for the first time when it makes its world premiere via AOL Music's First Listen program.

Brandy's as-yet-untitled fourth album is slated for release on June 22nd. With the exception of "Talk About Our Love," the album was primarily produced by Timbaland. Brandy will unveil her new collection to members of the media at a special launch event to be held in April in Montego Bay on the island of Jamaica. The event is being hosted by The Tourism Board of Jamaica, Half Moon Resort & Spa and Air Jamaica Airlines.

This marks Brandy's first new music since 2002's RIAA platinum "FULL MOON," which debuted at #1 on Billboard's "Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums" chart and at #2 on the Billboard 200, her highest-ever first-week position. "FULL MOON," which was nominated for a Grammy as Best Contemporary R&B Album, featured the smash crossover hit, "What About Us?"

Brandy's new album is her first release since she began a new management relationship with Benny Medina and his Handprint Entertainment company.

Brandy is the consummate modern artist, a charismatic and multi-talented star whose gifts span a diversity of creative worlds - from music to film to fashion. Since making her Atlantic debut a decade ago at the age of 15, her list of achievements includes multi-million-selling albums- including 1995's RIAA 4x-platinum certified "BRANDY" and 1998's RIAA 5x-platinum certified "NEVER SAY NEVER," and a string of enormously popular singles-including "Baby," "Sittin' Up In My Room," "Have You Ever," and the RIAA double-platinum, Grammy-winning, #1 smash, "The Boy Is Mine."

An accomplished and acclaimed actress, Brandy has starred in her own long-running UPN series, Moesha, as well as in such films as Walt Disney Pictures' Rodgers and Hammerstein's Cinderella, Columbia Pictures' I Still Know What You Did Last Summer, and ABC-TV's Double Platinum. At the same time, she has devoted herself to a number of humanitarian causes, including the Norwood Kids Foundation in McComb, Mississippi, as well as being named the first International Spokesperson For Youth by the U.S. Committee for UNICEF.
