The iPod Shuffle – Brandy’s “Angel In Disguise”

07.01.13 4 years ago 5 Comments

Four years after the debut of her 1994 eponymous album, a then 19-year-old Brandy released Never Say Never, a more mature LP that featured the fan favorite “Angel In Disguise.”

With raspy, yet, soft vocals, “Angel…” finds Brandy singing a familiar “everything that glitters isn’t gold” tune to a once-blinded lover, all while reassuring her loyalty to him. Frequent collaborator Rodney “Darkchild” Jerkins’ haunting, almost dark production and fellow R&B singer Joe’s background vocals perfectly blend with the Grammy winner’s lower register, making for a sonically hypnotizing hook and overall song.

Brandy may not be the big name draw she once was 15 years ago, but R&B contemporary hits like “Angel..” are why the singer remains a mainstay on many music players today.
