Remember Brandy? She start her successful career with “Baby” back in 1995 as the song peaked at #4 on the Billboard Charts. Yesterday it was announced that she is joining the cast of The Game on BET playing Chardonnay, a sassy bartender who unexpectedly becomes Jason’s (played by Coby Bell) new love interest. The producers are saying that she is a “fun, strong woman who gives Jason a run for his money because she’s the first woman to turn him down and call him on his BS.”
She also has an album coming out in 2012 off RCA/Chameleon Records, a first for her. It looks like it’ll be a good one since she is in the studio with the likes of Sean Garrett, Rico Love, Bangladesh, Timbaland, Frank Ocean, Jim Jonsin, Hit Boy, Ester Dean, Danja Hands and Chris Brown at the production helm.
Last but not least Brandy is slated to partake in Tyler Perry’s The Marriage Counselor. Does that movie sound familiar? It generated some buzz when Tyler cast Kim Kardashian as a marriage counselor in the movie and then Kim announced her divorce to Kris Humphrey’s. Want to talk about bad timing?
Brandy is excited about 2012, “This is a dream come true,” says Brandy. “’With ‘The Game,’ I’ve joined the talented cast of a smart and entertaining TV show and I get to work with the amazing [show creator] Mara Brock. And I’m working on a film with Tyler Perry, who’s a genius and someone I’ve always wanted to work with, AND I’m back in the studio working on a new album! Talk about being blessed! I’m surrounded by inspired writers and producers who believe in me as an artist and who want to bless the world with timeless music. Music gives my life a purpose and I’m thankful it lives in me.”
The Game begins Tuesday, January 10, at 10pm ET/PT on BET.
