Brandi D. of the platinum selling girl-group “Blaque” excitedly announced the release of “LOVE IT” on October 4, one day before her birthday. The highly anticipated solo debut from Brandi D. is going to heat up the winter with a diverse collection of powerhouse hits, club-ready anthems, and sexy R&B-dosed jams. Brandi’s album will feature collaborations with a myriad of A-list talent. She hit the studio with R Kelly, Trina and Cassius D Kalb whom has written for Bruno Mars and Lupe Fiasco. “LOVE IT” produced by the Platinum Brothers, is a slow sexy rhythm, mixed with a perfect electric guitar break. Brandi D. explains, “The lyrics of “LOVE IT” came from a space of being in love . . . it’s about the mind and not the physical and how someone can really get into you without even touching you.” Brandi D. achieved global pop stardom when she first joined forces with Shamari Fears-Devoe, and Natina Reed in taking the music scene by storm in ” Blaque”. The group’s debut album sold more than 1.5 million copies and was certified Platinum with songs such as “808”,“Bring It All To Me”, “I Do” and “I’m Good”. Listen to her new single below.
