Biography

Whether she was singing pop-friendly urban soul or acting in her own family-oriented sitcom, Brandy's winningly wholesome persona helped catapult her to stardom during her teenage years. She scored the longest-running number one female duet in chart history (teamed with Monica on "The Boy Is Mine"), a testament to her mainstream appeal, and she spent several years as the title ...

I gave an overall review of this album here on amazon. (Search for it if you will) But here's a breakdown of each individual track.
01: WHO I AM - A great opening to the album and the most autobiographical song on the record which sums up the reasoning behind her break up with her ex husband and how she felt in the relationship. It's a beautiful song with a great beat and nice vocals. The kinda song that will make you smile. [Album highlight]
02: AFRODESIAC - The first of the records several club tracks and this doesn't disappoint. A very bubbly up-tempo track which is guaranteed to make ya dance. It has an attractive vibe to it; almost as though you've heard it somewhere before. [Album highlight]
03: WHO IS SHE 2 U - Another track from Timbaland and a mid tempo track with very old skool r'nb twinge to it. The kinda song that'll get a smile on your face and get ya groovin'. [Album highlight]
04: TALK ABOUT OUR LOVE - I'm sure this song needs no overview, but none the less...a great track. [Album highlight]
05: I TRIED - Timbaland back to his old tricks. A very Ginuwine and Aayliah style track. A nice mid tempo number to kick back to and Brandy even sings us a line from a Coldplay song! A remedy for a hard day. [Album highlight]
06: WHERE YOU WANNA BE [featuring T.I] - The second cut from Kanye West and it shows a different side to his productions skills as he delivers a very smooth mid-tempo number. A classic sounding track which showcases Brandy's sexy voice as she sings in low registers. [Album highlight]
07: FOCUS - A sexy track with a nice mellow vibe. Timbaland hits again with his trademark unconventional beats. (Can this man do no wrong?!?) Not a track I was keen on at first, but it grew on me.

This album is hot from start to finish. Unlike previous Brandy albums which feature a handful of great tracks and lots of filler, Afrodisiac is solid stuff throughout. For the most part, Brandy knocks the slushy ballads and slow jams on the head in favour of mid to up tempo 21st Century RnB, highlights of which include the title track, Turn It Up and first single Talk About Our Love. Brandy also shines in her more melancholy moment on tracks like I Tried and Should I Go. Brandy reflects on the break up of her marriage on many of these tracks and truly wears her heart on her sleeve making each song all the more 'real' for it. Timbaland's production is tight through out and pushes the album on to another level. Highly recommended!

Brandy releases Afrodisiac after a long awaited return to music.
Afrodisiac is the kind of album that you wait and wait for and then start to think 'What If It's Not As Good As I Think It's Going To Be?' and then are surprised to the very core when you first listen to it.
Brandy, being one of those artists who's revolutionary sound makes us go crazy was bound to bring a new flavour to hip hop and she manages to do so with Afrodisiac. She talks about all sorts of topics ranging from the usual love and even the industry. She manages pay her respect to Aaliyah without losing any meaning from her songs.
The songs are an assortment of ballads, dance tracks and the mid tempo songs that are standard in any album. BUT, what Brandy has manged to pull of with this album has took this genre of music to another level. The sound is so fresh, although some of the recognisable Timbaland beats are present even he (as a producer) has outdone himself and created a classic.

Though she's all of 25 years old, Brandy Norwood has already experienced as many ups and downs as some women twice her age. In addition to having three platinum albums and a string of Top Ten hits, Brandy also married and divorced the father of her baby girl. But the heartbreak seems to have worked to her advantage: "Afrodisiac" is her best album and a clear departure from the cutesy bubblegum fare of her prior CDs. Replacing collaborator Rodney Jerkins (who was running out of fresh ideas on 2002's "Full Moon"), Brandy ropes in producers Timbaland and Kanye West for a more grounded, mature sound. Brandy no longer wants to be down; she IS down. Musically, "Afrodisiac" hardly reveals anything new; Timbaland's presence is immediately recognizable on infectious cuts like "Who Is She to You" and "I Tried." What really matters here are the honest lyrics, some of which seems to directly refer to her dissolved marriage ("Say You Will" and "Should I Go"). Other tracks of note include the kickoff single "Talk About Our Love," a hip-hop flavored jam produced and featuring West, as well as "Should I Go," which samples Coldplay. Timbaland has openly declared his love for the British group, and his sample of their hit "Clocks" works surprisingly well. After three albums of kiddie r&b, Brandy finally appears to be growing up. "Afrodisiac" is a step in the right direction and gets my nod of approval.

This is in my opinion the best of all of Brandy's albums. Her music has matured substantially. Afrodisiac is probabley the best song on her album, i can understand why she has chosen it as her favourite song. Her music is relaxing and has great beats. I loved this album and I listen to it alot. I would recommend this album to anyone.
