Be sure to pick up a copy of Brandy’s HUMAN album which drops on Tuesday, December 9th – just in time for the holidays. I’ve had the opportunity to take an early listen and I have to say that I am very happy that BRANDY IS BACK! She has an incredible voice. I had the honor of being one of the writers/producers on one of the songs on this album: TORN DOWN. There is a leak of this song on the internet and it’s not the version that is on the album. The leaked version is in a lower key and sounds very different than the album version – but they both sound good to me! Brandy’s Back!
The song TORN DOWN was written by James Fauntleroy, Kevin Risto, Dapo Torimiro, Waynne Nugent and produced by Dapo Torimiro for Dapomiro Productions and Bruce Waynne and Dirty Swift for MIDI Mafia.
