For Ebony’s annual Music Issue, R&B stars, Monica and Brandy are featured on the cover. Monica’s album, New Life, is in stores now, while Brandy’s album, Two Eleven is set to drop this summer. It features ‘Put It Down’ with Chris Brown.
In this issue that hits newsstands this month, Brandy clears up rumors about her brother Ray J, and admits that she is ready to wear on the “fourth finger, left hand.”
“I wish we were engaged. He’s taking a little long on the ring side of things, but I’m patient. I wanted to impress him. I wanted him to be proud of me; I was inspired by him. So making the record and him being there, it’s just all a part of it. Him and my daughter. I want him to love my songs. I want him to love my voice.”
