When Brandy's "U Don't Know Me ... Like You Used To" came out, the Timbaland/Aaliyah influence was too present to ignore, but without question the sound was perfect for Brandy.

Fast forward five years to 2004, Timbaland had produced Brandy's Afrodisiac album to critical acclaim but underwhelming sales, mainly due to a lack of promotional push by Atlantic Records.

Just think, if Afrodisiac had of come out around the time of Nelly Furtado and Justin Timberlake's last albums, it would have been a worldwide smash. Instead it was the most revered but least successful album of her career.

My first offering today is the Timbaland produced, Static penned "Sirens". A bonus track from the international CD single of "Afrodisiac". The beat is ridiculous, Timbo beatbox in full effect.

Brandy's Human is now available at iTunes and Amazon. CD is in stores around the world tomorrow.

Brian at Concreteloop has a very on-point review of the album. You can read it HERE. IMO, Human is the best comeback r&b album since Emancipation of Mimi.
