Brandy Tells All: The Stories Behind Her Classic Records

Brandy, “Best Friend” (1995)

Producer: Keith Crouch

Album: Brandy

Label: Atlantic

“I loved ‘Best Friend.’ I actually think that was the song that should’ve been the first single, because it was about my brother Ray J and he was in the video. It was so much fun just working with him, because it never feels like work when we work together. We were just young and we had so much fun doing that. It was great to do a song about him, because he means everything to me.

“It was just about our relationship. We were not going through anything at the time. I just wanted to dedicate a song to him that meant something to me. It was like one of [the ‘I Dedicate’ skits] but it was a full song. The dedication interludes were about people who inspire me from the legends and greats to the people that were just people that I grew up with.”
