Groovevolt.com reports that recently in an interview with XXL’s Hip-Soul Magazine, Brandy spoke out about her new album, her failed marriage to Robert Smith, and the her separation with Rodney Jerkins. The singer is currently in the studio with Timberland. “With Timbaland, I’m able to experiment and do things I never thought I could do with my voice. Like I’m rapping a little on the record. Talking a lot of crap,” she adds, “I wasn’t able to be the best that I can be on Darkchild’s stuff (Rodney Jerkins), because there was so much going on with the track. Not to say that the tracks wasn’t dope or that I don’t appreciate the success we had, but at the same time, I never felt like I was being the best artist that I could be. Everything was all about Rodney, and I understand that, because he’s talented and he’s a genius, but I wanted to shine as well.”
