CLASSIC ALBUM REWIND: Brandy Never Say Never
Im a HUGE Brandy fan so of course all of her albums are classic to me. However Never Say Never solidified her as one of the Best singer, songwriter, musicians PERIOD! Never Say Never is Brandy's second studio album released by Atlantic Records in 1998. I think at that time Brandy was only 19. The album was mostly produced by Rodney Jerkins and his team. Never Say Never earned Brandy five Grammy-nominations and was a worldwide success and a Grammy with Monica for their single "The Boy Is Mine." Never Say Never debuted at number two on the Billboard 200 and on the U.S. Billboard Top R&B/Hip-Hop albums chart. The album received five platinum certifications by the RIAA for more than five million copies shipped to US stores. While the album managed to enter the Top Five in the U.S, the Netherlands, Germany, Canada and Africa it was a top ten success in the majority of the charts it appeared on. In Asia, the album was a hit sensation, becoming one of the first R&B albums to achieve multiple chart hit singles. The album was supported by Brandy's Never Say Never World Tour in 1999, which featured sold out performances in The US, Asia, Africa and Canada. BEAST!
