Brandy Norwood, singer/actress extraordinaire has returned to Lifetime series “Drop Dead Diva.” She reprised her role as Elisa Shayne earlier this season and makes an appearance in two more episodes beginning July 8.
The superstar dished on her transition from music to acting and back again and on how her new song with Chris Brown will mark her triumphant return to music. It’s been a while since “The Boy Is Mine” and we’re itching for a new Brandy hit!
Talking about her new single “Put It Down” featuring Chris Brown, Brandy says, “I’m really excited about it, it’s my first single in four years...It’s great to be back on the music scene.”
She says the music video will debut sometime this month.
We know she can sing and act, so why doesn’t she serenade the cast during an episode of “Drop Dead Diva?”
“I have not been asked yet to sing. No, so I don't know - I don't think Elisa can sing,” Brandy says of her character.
However, we heard that Brandy and the show’s star Brooke Elliott like to sing and have jam sessions off camera. Maybe she can broker a deal to get a singing cameo if she gives Brooke a feature spot on an upcoming single?
“I'm going to make Brooke a deal,” Brandy laughs, “She can appear on my album if she lets me sing on ‘Drop Dead Diva,’ that's fair right?”
However, we might have to wait a while for that, because for now, Brandy says, “I try to keep my music and my acting as separate as possible because I want to give each as much time as possible in the different focus.”
Brandy will reprise her recurring role as Elisa Shaye on “Drop Dead Diva” on the Lifetime Channel on Sunday July 8, 2012 at 9pm. Bonus: Talented tennis star Serena Williams will be appearing in the episode as well.
