Brandy on train

One week after Tyrese promoted his new album, Black Rose, by singing on a subway train, R&B Diva Brandy Norwood decided to give it a try.

In both cases, no one seemed to recognize the 2 superstars. I blame the celebrities for not knowing their audience. Especially in Brandy's case.

But in Brandy's defense, her vocals require a certain finesse in a recording studio to capture her very recognizable lower register.

As great as Brandy is, she's no match for a noisy NY subway train

Even panhandlers have to shout "ESCUSE ME! MAY I HAVE YOUR ATTENTION, PLEASE!" to be heard over the train's loud staccato rhythm when they beg for pocket change.

Watch Brandy singing her heart out in the video below.

    You bettra leave Chardonnay alone.

  • RaginB

    so basically brandy gets the same treatment on the subway as she does at her concerts...???

  • MS PEACHES

    That's cold yo!

    I didn't see Tyrese's video. I gotta check it out. But as you can see, Brandy didn't even face the people when she was singing. She sang to the camera. She was also playing around and didn't belt out the song. I've seen her do better on Instagram posts. If she wanted to impress New York commuters she should have sang Stephanie Mills version of the song and killed it, not Diana Ross's meek, understated version.

    Hi Ms Peaches! :waves:

  • http://theempirefiend.tumblr.com/ Bird

    Am I the only one that wants her with Little Roger and wants Kelly and Jason to fail at everything they touch in life?

  • Disturbing The Peace

    Man when I was in NY last year. There were people dancing on the train, singing, yelling, cussing and everybody just looking straight forward or in their phone. They prolly thought it was just the daily NY subway f**kery. This isn't news to me.

    Yes. Him and Kelly are good together. She should get with the owner son.

  • MS PEACHES

    You drinking???? LOL Sike, Some of his song are ok.

  • https://www.etsy.com/shop/AMarieNaturals Lovezoe

    You think they woulda recognized MonIca or Tiny? ???

  • Disturbing The Peace

    I don't know who those 2 people are? LOL :kona:

  • Femme404

    Hey hey now...Mo off limits.

  • http://theempirefiend.tumblr.com/ Bird

    I hate him and Kelly. She brings out the worst in him.

  • https://www.etsy.com/shop/AMarieNaturals Lovezoe

    He is no different with either one.

  • Femme404

    ONE song is ok..."Why you wanna act like that..."

  • iWasteTime

    She better sang but that is the wrong city for that, fools doing everything on the subway, and she is CLEARLY on the wrong train :lol:
    A black person would have recognized her voice.

  • MS PEACHES

    It time for the Mo and Bran remix. This man is mine.

    Chile Brandy is a vocal beast .... Vet !!!!!

  • iWasteTime

  • iWasteTime

    I agree.
    I want Jason to find out Brit Brat ain't his, get fired and lose it all!

  • SUZANNE SUGERBAKER

    they tried that last year. It tanked

  • Femme404

    Brandy's best work was Aphrodisiac HANDS DOWN.

    "Maybe I should I get up and go wash my face...cryin' never kept you at home anyway...."

  • I want to be free

    Tyrese didn't sing. He promoted his album by shouting out to the passengers.

  • SUZANNE SUGERBAKER

    so do I. Reminds me of when he was on that bus singing for co cola. The good ole days when he used his mouth to sing

  • MisTaken

    I ?? The whole album. One of my fav albums period bc it tells a story and I love a large majority of the songs.

  • Femme404

    And that's being nice.

  • SUZANNE SUGERBAKER

    wait. stop. hole the fugg up. I aint never really watched the game but you mean to tell me they bout to say Jason aint Brit Brat deddy after ALL THESE YEARS. WTF that come from

  • SUZANNE SUGERBAKER

    hey. I try.

  • SUZANNE SUGERBAKER

    wonders how many times she has really had to pull herself together like this cause for some reason she never seems able to keep a man.

  • https://www.etsy.com/shop/AMarieNaturals Lovezoe

    No. That's what they wabt to happen

  • Nancy Drew on my ibrowse today

    Hey Take! :hug:

  • Petty Rubble

    I love me some Bran Bran

  • MisTaken

    ???

  • Nancy Drew on my ibrowse today

    :chase: ROFL!

  • Letmecommentbeforeicant

    Wait the white man is giving her advice face to face and still didn't know. I would have walked up and been like...Brandy why you playing ?

  • WHITTYwithWORDS

    Don't do that; don't knock her accomplishments for a cheap laugh. She may not do big areas but she stays booked on TV, Broadway and puts on a helluva show.

  • WHITTYwithWORDS

    Brandy is a mess and I like her as a person. She didn't even flex.

  • PettyEyezPrime

    Absolutely love her!

  • Dollface

    LOVER HER! Always have. "I dedicate to youuuuu! This song's for youuuuu!" hey!!!

  • AllmylifeIhadtofight

    I stopped watching after him and Kelly got back together. That solidified it for me that the show had turned to trash. So he couldn't have his happily ever after without Becky.... I meant Kelly ?. And WTF was she doing at the wedding ain't that much being cordial in the world. Fuq Kira don't know who she want azz. You don seen Malik dog everybody azz out. You think your couch got the magic touch???

  • _perfectly__incomplete__

    Bit of a hit to the ego

  • iWasteTime

    No. I just want it to be ...lolol

  • Zettai

    Exactly. Riding the train in Chi you'd listen to the same crap plus a bunch of no-talent mofos freestyling out of nowhere. Wish I'd heard one that was actually good once, but I never did.

  • ?Sugar&Spice?

    LOL I swear, the other sites are more scandalous but if you want a good read, this is where it is.

  • BLOODBLOOD

    Hahahahahahaha who cares about brandy azz

  • ShadeMstr

    Brandy was on the wrong train with the wrong people, The 2, 5 and 4 train is a better choice for her and the attention she was seeking.

  • Tonia Hannah

    Attention whore! Smh her and tyrese ugh...

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    I love all her albums.... all are solid masterpieces yasss

  • Divame

    How did they not recognize her voice tho ?

  • kekeb

    THIS is prooooobably why she's single. . . But she did sound pretty good.
    I was looking for Tyrese though (misleading title)

  • misunderstood

    Yaaaaaaaaaas!!! The better get their life who does not recognize Brandy

  • misunderstood

    Yaaaaaaaaas they better get their life, who does not recognize Brandy?

  • what?why

    Why is this surprising? These people live in their own heads and the media encourages this la la land.

  • XoXo

    More like...You Can Have Him... LOL

  • Guess Who

    NO1CURR about Branson or her quest to be noticed on a subway. That girl been taking uppercase L's a lot lately. SMH.

  • Ke$hiaFromBelly

    Brandy can do NOOO wrong in my book. Shes even cool n person....the subway riders aint no they were witnessing DOPENESSS! #stan lolol

  • Dee

    Yup! That broadway show is awesome. I have to give her big props on that and she had some great hits. But she looked and sounded a mess in that subway so why bother.

  • Dee

    Keeping a man is a lot of work on our part so I am not mad at her for that.

  • Cricket404

    I like the Mexicans with banjos and sombreros on the A train.

  • Crazy tee

    I thought she sounded better singing on the train then she does on her albums....weird....Maybe she should record her next album on a subway train

  • gntory

    I'm so sick of Brandy's "weed smokers" lip arss. I'm just trying to figure out why she thought people on a busy train would give 2 fux when she can't even sell out a concert!
