While Brandy readies her next album, the R&B diva pops up on a pair of songs for newcomers Mystery Skulls. The band, consisting of Luis Dubuc, Casey Crawford, and Zack Ordway, calls upon the singer and guitar legend Nile Rodgers for the disco-infused “Number 1″ and “Magic” off their upcoming debut Forever.
“I think I found my number 1 / You can never be a one-hit winder,” sings Brandy on the blissful track.“I wrote the song with [Brandy] in mind,” Dubuc told The FADER of “Number 1.” “Then one day she heard it through someone we both knew, and she said yes. We were in the studio like a week later. When she showed up, she asked to sing on my other track, ‘Magic,’ as well. Brandy’s voice is stunning!” Forever is due October 27. Stream “Number 1″ below.
