Was Brandy Dropped By Epic: Human Comeback To Blame?

A once chart dominating R&B singer, Brandy is now rumored to have found herself without a label to call home. According to BV Buzz, the “Long Distance” and “Baby” singer has officially been dropped form Epic Records in addition to losing management assistance from Roc Nation! But is Brandy’s drop really that surprising considering the seemingly forgotten comeback attempt with 2008’s “Human” ? Sources say Brandy is without a label home because of the album’s lackluster performance since November. In fact, a source tells BV Buzz that they “didn’t see the benefit in giving her another album.” Brandy signed a deal with Epic after solely recording under Atlantic Records in 2008. “Human” was the former “Moesha” star’s first new album in four years and first project since a tragic accident and subsequent civil suit. “Human” spawned two singles, with the lead single “Right Here(Departed)” peaking at no. 34 on Billboard’s Hot 100. According to Nielsen Soundscan, Brandy’s “Human” has sold just over 196,000 copies in the United States.
