Brandy’s Dreamy ‘Brave’ Cover a Hit With Sara Bareilles
Say what you wanna say, sing what you wanna sing: Brandy threw her followers for a bit of a loop earlier this week when she posted a cover of Sara Bareilles' 2013 hit "Brave," and Bareilles, herself, is raving.
Tuesday night (January 9), Brandy uploaded her dreamy rendition of the track, which was nominated for Best Pop Solo Recording at the 2014 Grammys, to Twitter. Well, more accurately, she uploaded video of herself lip synching along to a recording. Suffice it to say, it was a little strange, but the sentiment was lovely.
"#brave is what I have to be to live the life I am meant to live. What a beautiful song," Brandy wrote.
And Bareilles couldn't help but agree, noting "[I] can't stop listening" on Twitter (she also later called the cover "f------ awesome").
And fans of both artists chimed in, too. "Please make it available for purchase! Love how you tweaked the melody a little and made it your own, so great," one tweeted, while another noted "What a Compliment. And How Beautiful."
Brandy has since uploaded her version of "Brave" to SoundCloud — check it out above and let us know what you think in the comments.
