Brandy set to make music comeback with Chance the Rapper collab
Brandy is set to make a comeback with a Chance the Rapper collaboration this week.
The R&B legend - who has sold more than 40 million records worldwide - will release new single, "Baby Mama", with the Chicago native on May 1.
The track - which is produced by Hit-Boy - was teased on Instagram with a 15-second snippet posted on Brandy's page.
And the 41-year-old singer - who has 17-year-old daughter Sy'rai with music producer Robert 'Big Bert' Smith - has revealed the song has a "powerful message" about motherhood and "striving" for "independence".
Speaking on SiriusXM's Laura Coates Show, she said: "It has such a message.
"It's celebrating mothers out there who are out there doing their best for their children and striving in their independence, in their strength, in their power. I just wanted to come out with a powerful message like that."
The "The Boy Is Mine" hitmaker's upcoming song follows 2019's "Freedom Rings", which was released to coincide with the 25th anniversary of her acclaimed 1994 self-titled debut album, and "Love Again" with Daniel Caesar.
Brandy's last studio album was 2012's "Two Eleven" and she is known to be working on a new record.
Last year, the Grammy-winner - whose full name is Brandy Norwood - was honoured at the 2019 BMI R&B/Hip-Hop Awards with the BMI's President Award.
And during her acceptance speech, the "I Wanna Be Down" singer promised new music was on the way.
She said: "I love you guys. All of the sacrifices and everything you've done for my life to continue to be what it is ... I just appreciate you guys so very much.
"I'm looking forward to just singing all of my new songs and all of my songs together on every stage that I can possibly sing on. I'm ready for the world, are you guys?"
