Brandy has revealed the title for her highly anticipated new album, and the name is very personal for more reasons than one. The R&B star said her new LP will be called Two Eleven, which represents both her birthday (February 11) and the day her idol Whitney Houston died.
Though Brandy will pay tribute to the gone-too-soon icon with her album title, so far she has refrained from singing any of Houston's songs. At a concert in Los Angeles recently, she revealed that to do so would be too much to bear emotionally.
"I heard there was a rumor that I was doing a Whitney Houston tribute tonight," she told the audience, according to TheYBF. "Unfortunately that's not true, because I would be an emotional wreck right now. I'm just not ready to sing any of her songs. You guys know what that's like."
Brandy recently released the video for the first single from Two Eleven, "It All Belongs To Me." The Rico Love-produced track reunites her with fellow R&B diva Monica for the first time since 1998's "The Boy Is Mine." Brandy's album is due in stores this June.
