Right Here (Departed) is the first single from Bandy’s upcoming album “HUMAN”. If you don’t already know the song and video have been available for a few weeks now. The video even reached #1 on 106 & Park. I am a huge fan of Brandy. Here’s what I thought of the new material.
The song – Instance classic. It’s produced by Rodney “Darkchild” Jerkins one of Brandy’s long time collaborators and friends. I was a fan of a song he did recently with Natasha Bedingfield called “Angel” and so when I heard this song for the first time I was pleased to hear that it has similar production style.
The Video – She looks beautiful and passionate but it took some time to grow on me. I wasn’t entirely convinced that enough happened in the video or that the director did justice in editing it together. But – being the Brandy fan that I am, I have watched the video many many times and it has grown on me.
The single cover – Nice photo of Brandy and nice font used. Not sure it says much about the song, but it’s a typical RnB cover and it’s well done.
