Brandy is back and better than ever in the dance-heavy video for her first single “Put It Down.” The R&B diva rocks her signature braids and cozies up to her co-star Chris Brown in front of a white Ferrari in the colorful clip, directed by Hype Williams. She hits the streets and shows off some moves courtesy of choreographer Frank Gatson (Beyoncé, Kelly Rowland).

“She’s been one of my inspirations musically. As far as females are concerned, she’s one of the best vocalists,” Chris told “The Insider” on set of the L.A. shoot. “I’m honored to have the chance to be on the record with her.”

Brandy’s sixth album Two Eleven arrives October 2 via RCA/Chameleon Records. It is expected to feature contributions from Sean Garrett, Bangladesh, Rico Love, Frank Ocean, and more.

After taking fans on a retrospective of her life on “Behind the Music,” Brandy offers a glimpse into the next chapter of her career with “Put It Down,” the first single off her upcoming RCA/Chameleon Records debut Two Eleven. Her labelmate Chris Brown spits a verse on the hip-hop-flavored love song, which was written and produced by Bangladesh and Sean Garrett.

“It’s definitely something you have never heard—you probably haven’t heard Brandy over a track like this,” Garrett told Rap-Up.com. “It’s very commercial, but at the same time, it’s got a dope hip-hop influence—it’s club, it’s radio, it’s all formats.”

The single will be released to iTunes on May 8, while album collaborators include Timbaland, Mario Winans, Danja, Hit-Boy, Noah “40” Shebib, Rico Love, Ester Dean, Frank Ocean, and more.

Brandy is coming back with a banger. After reuniting with Monica on their duet “It All Belongs to Me,” the R&B singer has enlisted Chris Brown for the first single off her upcoming album.

“Put It Down,” which will appear on Brandy’s RCA/Chameleon Records debut Two Eleven, is set to premiere this month. Breezy raps on the song, which was produced by Bangladesh and written by Sean Garrett.

“It’s uptempo, it’s really different,” Brandy told True Exclusives, while also sharing her experience in the studio with the “Deuces” singer.

“The session was amazing,” she said. “I just think his artist Se7en is so talented and she gets me and Chris gets me. To work with people that love you and love your craft and what you do, I think it makes the song even better and the experience even better.”

Garrett previously spoke to Rap-Up.com about the track. “It’s definitely something you have never heard—you probably haven’t heard Brandy over a track like this,” he said. “It’s very commercial, but at the same time, it’s got a dope hip-hop influence—it’s club, it’s radio, it’s all formats.”

Brandy, who will be featured on VH1’s “Behind the Music” on April 25, has been in the studio with Frank Ocean and Hit-Boy, among others. Two Eleven is due this summer.
