Exclusive: Brandy "Still Human" Mixtape

This is the seventh & last "mixtape" that I've created (or is it? Read more below.)... & it's easily my favorite, as it's far & away the most played collection of songs on my iTunes. I believe Brandy's Human era is the best era musically anyone's ever had & since you are familiar with this blog, & therefore are likely fond of Ms. Norwood's music, I'm sure most of you have your own playlist of unreleased Brandy songs from this era, but this is mine. Still Human includes pretty much all of the material that leaked right around the release of the Human album that didn't make the cut, as I was very excited, to say the least, at the time, which is why you even have her John Legend collaboration on there, but it just so happens that everything that emerged with Brandy's name on it at the time was incredible! Obviously Brandy's signature brilliant vocal arrangements are present here, but I can't even begin to put into words how amazing the music that this woman has created is & how thankful I am to have it at times like these when there is a total & utter R&B drought out there, so take a listen above & prepare for bliss!

1. Gonna Find My Love
2. After The Flood
3. Drum Life
4. Surprise Ending
5. Locket (Locked In Love)
6. Porcelain Doll
7. Bring It Back
8. 2nd Thought
9. Quickly (ft. John Legend)
10. Throw It All Away
11. Freedom
12. Keyed
13. One Thing

As for these "mixtapes," if you all are enjoying them, then I am happy to report that I have been busy putting many more together & I can post them if you'd like... in fact, I actually thought I could create a separate blog to throw 'em up on & possibly provide download links (as I'm not up for risking the years of work I've put into this blog going to waste because of a few DL links). Another idea I had that you might like however is one I picked up from That Grape Juice (which I don't visit on a regular basis anymore, so I don't know if they've done this in a while or not) & that's posting a 'Best You've Never Heard' every weekend or so (right here!), which would have me weeding through all the multitudes of leaked material from everybody over the years & finding the absolute gems that we're all always on the hunt for! So, hopefully you've read this & if you'd like to share your thoughts on what you'd like me to do moving forward, just drop me a comment! Thanks :)
