Hey, y’all!

If you follow me on any social media you know that I’m a huge 90s R&B fan and even huger Brandy fan! I’ve been down with Miss “I Wanna Be Down” since Thea days and have remained a close follower of her career through the years. Her vocal acrobatics and little nuances are effortless, controlled and her very own signature that many have tried to imitate to no avail. Her voice is like an oxymoron: so raspy, but so pure. And the layers are so insane that it sounds like she’s harmonizing with herself at times, even when she’s singing live! A true artist’s artist, fellow peers have expressed their admiration for Ms. Norwood soon to be Mrs. Press. John Frusciante, former guitarist of Red Hot Chili Peppers, said, “You can’t hear [the elaborate harmonies] with your conscious: you have to hear her voice with your subconscious,” and credited Brandy as the inspiration for the guitar work on the band’s Stadium Arcadium. Her list of admirers is never ending, as Rihanna, Solange, India.Arie, Jojo, Kelly Rowland, Jessie J, legendary Whitney Houston, Missy Elliot, Jay-Z, Tyra Banks, Kanye, Jill Scott, Chris Brown, Jennifer Hudson, Kim Burrell and more have expressed their respects regarding the iconic voice.

As a lover of artistry, I’m beyond grateful for Norwood’s musical contributions. In all her amazing awesome sauce, however, I’ve always said that if for whatever reason music hadn’t worked out, she could have been a supermodel. Much like her alluring tone, her features are so uniquely beautiful and distinct. Her eyes are squinted with a stunning almond shape, her build is slim but still shapely, and she has sexy gams that stretch for days! Checking her Instagram is a daily practice of mine (fret not, I’m not a stalker… okay, maybe sometimes), and I live for her selfies. They just further confirm what I always knew to be true about the striking beauty that is Brandy Norwood. It’s probably clear that I could express my obsession with this musical great forever, so to keep things moving along, here are 7 pics that prove why Brandy could have been a supermodel. No caption or words needed because she’s just that GORGE!
