Since bursting onto the scene at age 15 with her multi-platinum self-titled debut album in 1994, this trail-blazing pioneer has sold more than 40 million albums worldwide and is ranked one of the best-selling female artists in American music history by the RIAA, having sold over 11 million albums in the United States alone. During her reign she’s recorded six albums: Her 1994 debut, 1998’s – “Never Say Never,” 2002’s – “Full Moon,” 2004’s – “Afrodisiac,” 2008’s – “Human,” and in 2012 -“Two Eleven.” Brandy has also earned scores of awards, including a Grammy, an AMA, two Soul Train Music Awards, two NAACP Image Awards, three Billboard Music Awards, four MTV Awards, six Soul Train Lady of Soul Awards, two Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards, and three BMI Awards.
