Brandy is all over the map these days. She just released “Beggin and Pleadin” a bluesy, guitar-based song that recalls the soul of Ma Rainey, B.B King, and Etta James, with her raspy vocals confidently riffing on the track. It’s definitely not what you’d expect from the singer in this climate of oversexed, same-sounding R&B, but I welcome her growth.

This follows the premiere of her new show Zoe Ever After, a show about a businesswoman coming into her own after a divorce. I watched it; it’s cute. I’ll need it to grow on me.
