Sean Garrett Praises Brandy’s ‘Two Eleven’ LP, Hates ‘Our Generation’
Sean Garrett has been praised as one of the best R&B songwriters of the past decade, but on Saturday (Sept. 29) in Atlanta, he preferred to take the conversation off of himself. He only wanted to talk about one singer: Brandy.
“The Brandy album is all I’m talking about tonight,” he told The BoomBox on the red carpet at the 2012 BET Hip Hop Awards. “That album is nuts. I just feel like… I couldn’t believe that people were really ready to discount her as an incredible artist.”
“I just hate that about our generation; we’re so quick to dismiss greatness,” he stated. “When other people can tour until they’re 70 years old and we don’t even embrace our people enough to encourage them and lift them up.”
Garrett is mainly excited about bringing Brandy’s new sound to the masses because he says it’s what R&B is in need of these days. He and producer Bangladesh, who crafted the beat for her Chris Brown-assisted “Put It Down,” knocked out six songs on the chanteuse’s sixth LP, entitled Two Eleven.
“It’s amazing,” Garrett continued. “I actually keep talking about it but it’s really, really dope. If y’all love ‘Put It Down,’ if y’all love ‘Wildest Dream,’ just wait.”
Two Eleven is slated for release Oct. 16.
