Brandy: Stupid in Love

This is a track from Rihanna's new album but a version of the song hit the net not too long ago with Brandy singing it instead. I ignored it for a second so you may have heard it but I love this version so much more. Brandy's background vocals and just overall delivery made the song a better listen and much more convincing. Brandy kills it. She gives a real depth to the song.

LOL @ pop confections. That's true.
Music is subjective, so yes it all boils down to preference and what one wants to hear. I'm not a huge Brandy fan but I do like the fact that she has grown and learned some musicianship. I use the word "depth" because of her delivery. She tapers phrases and actually has dynamic contrast. Even if I don't love her voice all of the time, I do appreciate the layers in the performance.
