Is anybody checking for Brandy anymore? The reason I ask is because her posts seem to get the lowest views for this site; which is odd considering some (her fans) call her the "Vocal Bible". Anyway, for those still interested, the singer has released the video (finally) for single Put It Down [Review here].
I was wondering why it was taking so long for this video to drop; the single debuted at the start of May, and the video was filmed at the start of following month. However, having just watched this awkward affair, I bet the delay was due to a desperate editor/ director fervently trying to stitch together a half decent showing from a bunch of bad takes.
I really wish Brandy had contained her excitement and waited till she'd seen the finished product before she made this comment:
I wish I could tell you who’s directing it......it’s going to epic, which is great because I haven’t had [an epic video in a] while and it’ll be my first video [as a solo artist] in four years. Can’t wait till it’s out!!!"The time taken to create this (bad) tribute to Beyonce's performance style, as well as that premature statement with the multiple use of the word "epic", only heightened the expectations for the video. Unfortunately, it delivers in all the wrong ways, and makes me think Brandy might need to go back to the drawing board if her upcoming album, Two Eleven, contains more of this "feisty" new persona because she doesn't quite pull it off convincingly here.
