Unveiling their first video Wednesday on BET’s 106 & Park, R&B quintet Brutha announced plans to release their debut album this year following their highly anticipated reality series “Brother To Brother” on BET. Slated for released Dec. 9, Brutha’s self-titled Def Jam debut is led by the uptempo single “I Can’t Hear the Music” featuring Fabolous. (below) Comprising of the five Harrell brothers — Anthony, Jared, Jacob, Cheyenne and Grady — Brutha is rooted in the soulful, energetic harmonies voiced by such predecessors as the Jackson 5, Boyz II Men and New Edition. Ranging in age from 19 to 25, the Los Angeles-based siblings worked with an array of well-known songwriter/producers, including Ne-Yo, Rodney Jerkins, Jazze Pha, 112 founding member Daron Jones and Elvis Williams, who did the first single. “This album is real R&B from dance and mid-tempo grooves to heartbreak songs and ballads,” group member Anthony told Billboard recently. “It’s young and fresh and we keep it energetic with our dance moves.” Brutha’s documented journey entitled “Brother To Brother” will be aired on BET starting November 18th. “We grew up with humble beginnings and don’t want to lose that integrity,” says group member Grady, whose siblings number 13 in all: eight boys and five girls. “All the flashy things that people dwell on in the industry … that isn’t us. It’s family first before the professional thing.” Filmed over a six-week period in Los Angeles and other locales, “Brother To Brother” chronicles the group’s pursuit of a recording career while also covering everyday issues that all families experience.
