Ray J Preps New Album, Supports Brandy on ‘DWTS’
When Brandy hits the stage for the 11th season of ‘Dancing With the Stars,’ the Grammy winner will have the support of her younger brother Ray J who will be cheering for her every step of the way. Ray, who has always shared a close relationship with his sister, revealed that aside from his music projects and shooting his reality show ‘Brandy & Ray J: A Family Business,’ he can’t wait to support his sister as she competes against the likes of David Hasselhoff and former NBA baller, Rick Foxx.
“I’m more excited about that than anything,” he told The BoomBox. “I feel like it’s the Super Bowl coming up for us and I’m actually on the fields on the sidelines so I’m excited. I’m a little nervous for her but I know she’s gonna do real good and I want everybody to vote for her.”
While his sister is lacing up her dancing shoes, Ray has been busy in the studio working on his forthcoming, untitled album. Set to feature appearances from Ludacris, Pitbull and Gucci Mane, the 29-year-old has been putting the finishing touches on the album which he executive produced alongside Rodney Jerkins. “It should be something real explosive and the music should really just speak [for itself].”
Aside from their personal business obligations, the Norwood family, which includes mom Sonya and dad Willie Ray Sr., just rapped up shooting the second season of their reality show which will return to VH1. ‘Dancing With the Stars’ kicks off at 8:00PM on Monday, Sept. 20, on ABC.
