In a recent interview with Kempire Radio, JoJo praised R&B veteran Brandy for her gift, insisting she is a top vocalist of her generation. “To deny Brandy’s influence would be a lie and foolish,” says JoJo. “I mean Brandy is one of the most incredible vocalists of this generation.”
The “Disaster” singer says she didn’t grow up listening to the “I Wanna Be Down” hitmaker but adds that she has a lot of respect for her craft.
“But did I grow up studying and listening to her in that way? Honestly no,” she says. “But did I always respect her talent? A thousand percent. To run into her, every time we see each other, there’s so much love, so much respect and her gift is undeniable.”
JoJo even had pleasant things to say about Brandy’s rapping alter ego Bran’Nu, which came to life on Timbaland’s ‘Shock Value II.’
She adds: “I think it’s actually really fresh, I think that she really pulls it off. Whenever I see her performing as Bran’Nu live, I think it’s pretty fly.”
We definitely side with JoJoâ¦do you?
