    I notice on their new show that Sonya, their mom is trying to be too involved in their career. She is really a queen B in some way. She should lay back and let them operate within their own talent. I wonder if she ever ask herself, what does a 50+ yr old woman know about music that will be purchased by 16-35 yr olds.

    Peace fam.

    Ain't nothing different about the music the kids listen to today, it's just watered down and mass produced. Oh wait... that IS the difference.

    I know virtually nothing about Queen B, Brandy or Ray J (wait a minute, uh uh).. but wasn't Usher's mother his manager? I mean, she's gotta be at least 40+, and he went platinum I think.

    So maybe Brandy's mother understand the game. Same game different wrapping, Brother.

    One,

    On the first episode Sonya says she needs a break...

    I'm sure it is hard for her as a parent and being their manager for so long to take a step back...

    Is it because she is 50 or it because she is a woman that makes her less knowledgeable about the music now? Or both? Because there are male managers who are 50 something and they were doing a good job...Look at, well...ex manager...Matthew Knowles (Beyonce's father) He was old as moonshine and her career was off the hook...And still is even though he isn't in the picture any more.

    But it is ultimately up to Brandy and Ray J to keep their mom or not.

    Beyonce is a black Barbie for industrial purposes but I do get what yall saying, I just think the lingo evolves a little and she may be a tad bit out of the know when it comes to current sounds.

    Brandy is also trying to get her Drake on by combining her singing with rap.
    If she gets the right DJ I think it can work but it has to be the right DJ. Sonja may not get the alter ego "Bran Nu", that may be a little out of her realm of sound. A plain Brandy album will likely flop. People gotta hear something new to stay interested in a artist who has been around for a while.

    I think it's gonna work out for her , and i agree she have to come out with something
    far better then what she ever did and this sound or mixture would do it !

    she said she not gonna do all her songs that way but maybe 2 or 3
    that's enough to make the CD sale.

    I get the impression that she's more involved for business sense than creativity. From the looks of it, Ray J is still in the "boy to man" phase and could use her guidance and Brandy is so bonded with her brother that she may miss some things if Momma wasn't holding it down.
