R&B singer Brandy has publicly displayed her struggle to make a comeback in music on the VH1 reality series Brandy & Ray J: A Family Affair. She also just got a big break recently with the announcement of a new major label deal.
L.A. Times music blog Pop & Hiss confirmed Monday that the Grammy Award-winning singer has signed a deal with RCA records.
“This is truly a blessing,” Brandy said in a statement. “Breyon Prescott, Peter Edge and Tom Corson [RCA Music Group’s president and chief operating officer] believe in me and have introduced me to a home that also believes and knows exactly what to do with the type of music I’m doing.”
Brandy’s previous deal with Epic Records produced one album, 2008’s Human. The album was disappointing commercially.
“Throughout her career, Brandy has consistently won the vote as everyone’s favorite female vocalist,” said Peter Edge, chief executive of RCA Music Group said in a statement. “I am sure that in her next chapter… we will record her most exciting music to date.”
Brandy is expected to release her next album in 2012.
