The one and only Brandy is back with a colorful, new music video for her latest single, "Baby Mama" featuring Chance the Rapper.
Directed by Derek Blanks with creative direction by Frank Gatson, the Grammy Award-winning songstress dons fly threads and fresh cornrows as she hits every move in a plaid suit while singing about being the strong, confident and proud single mother that she is.
"The inspiration for Baby Mama was, of course, my daughter and how she makes me a better person," she writes in the caption of the visual posted on YouTube. "I wanted to do a song about her and speak to all baby mama's out there that may feel like they can't make it or they can't push through, you know, if you use your child as an inspiration you can do anything and I want to everybody to feel that." She went on to give "a huge shoutout" to Chance The Rapper. "He spit a really really dope verse on it and I’m so pleased with it."
Earlier this week, Brandy chatted with ABC's Good Morning America and chatted about her Mother's Day plans before unveiling the album cover for her seventh studio album B7.
"I think I'm gonna just cook and just spend some time with my mom and my daughter. We're all together quarantined so we're looking forward to that day so we can love on each other some more."
The album is slated for July 31 as the release date. You can pre-order her album digitally and in vinyl form on Amazon Music.

Kelly Rowland's new "Coffee" music video is here and clearly she did not come here to play. The singer-songwriter released the stunning visual for her latest single on Thursday night (April 16) with a quote breaking down the meaning of the song's title and who it's meant to resonate with.
"To me, COFFEE is about embracing your individuality, sexuality, or imperfections. Not comparing yourself to others," notes Rowland in the video's YouTube description. "We need to celebrate ourselves more often — with this song, I want you to have yourself in mind. I want to remind women all over to reignite their magic!"
The Steven Gomillion-directed video features Rowland and a plethora of black women of different shapes and sizes, dressed in various nude tones. Afros, braids, black and white color schemes flow throughout the video, accentuating the beauty that is #BlackGirlMagic.
Watch the warm visual above. You can also catch Kelly occasionally chatting about love, sex, and more grown folks topics on her Instagram Live series Coffee with Kelly.
The Weeknd’s new album After Hours arrived last month. Today (April 7), Abel Tesfaye shared the new music video for “Until I Bleed Out,” which is the closing track on the album.
The clip finds The Weeknd at a confetti-covered party in an old movie palace. As he struggles to stand upright amid all the papier-mache, he finds that the ground is moving in circles.
After Hours follows 2016’s Starboy. Previous visuals from the LP include “Heartless,” “Blinding Lights,” “After Hours” and “In Your Eyes.”
The Weeknd has also shared a deluxe version of the album with three new bonus tracks — “Nothing Compares,” “Missed You” and “Final Lullaby” — as well as four new remixes from Oneohtrix Point Never, Chromatics, the Blaze and DaHeala.
After checking out what fans are tweeting about the video, watch the clip above.
The Until I Bleed Out video feels like an overindulgence of House of Balloons life. With The Weeknd trying to escape it and ultimately running towards a clean slate. pic.twitter.com/qDBNbeyPCE
