5 Best Songs From Brandy’s ‘Full Moon’ Album
In 2002, Brandy was at a crossroad in her career. The R&B star who had grown from a teenage phenom into a young woman before the world's eyes, was stepping into adulthood, which meant a shift in her image, style, and the content of her music.
Arriving on the scene in 1994 with her multi-platinum self-titled debut, Brandy would quickly capture the hearts of urban America, as well as the mainstream, who embraced her as the next black pop queen in the mold of the likes of Whitney Houston and other crossover stars.
Having established herself as a force to be reckoned with heading into the release of her 1998 sophomore release, Never Say Never, Brandy would see a leap in her maturation and artistry, teaming up with Rodney "Darkchild" Jenkins for one of the most celebrated and cohesive R&B albums of the late-'90s. Selling over 16 million copies worldwide, Never Say Never turned Brandy into one of the biggest artists in R&B music.
Taking nearly four years to unveil her third studio album, Brandy would make her long-awaited return in 2002 with Full Moon, an album that continued her artistic progression and presented the songstress as a grown woman and having shed any of her teenybopper tendencies.
More than a decade after the release of Full Moon, and 20 years after first wowing the public, Brandy is remembered as one of the brightest R&B stars during the '90s.
