Revealing the news via Twitter, R&B veteran Brandy has announced that her highly-anticipated forthcoming sixth studio album will be titled ‘Two Eleven (2/11).’ The departed singer also adds that the RCA debut project will arrive June 2012.
As far as the title ‘Two Eleven,’ the numbers extract from her date of birth and the date her idol and friend Whitney Houston passed away.
In addition to paying homage to Whitney, Brandy recently stated that she wants to make sure everything goes right on the upcoming effort.
“I really feel like this is my chance to get it right. I don’t want to make any mistakes,” the “He Is” singer said. “We want to make sure we have the first single, the right first single, so we don’t have to do a bunch of remixes and stuff like that.”
She continued: “I can’t come off of an unsuccessful album and do that again. I can’t do that. That’s why things are taking forever and I’m really trying to get everything right.”
The list of producers and collaborators currently known for ‘Two Eleven’ includes Drake, Frank Ocean, Chris Brown, Danja, Jim Jonsin, Timbaland and longtime friend/collaborator Rodney Jerkins.
Her recent duet, “It All Belongs To Me,” with Monica will also appear on the album. A video will be premiering soon.
