Brandy – Talk About Our Love

I recently stumbled across the video for Brandy’s hit single ‘Talk About Our Love’ which featured and was produced by Kanye West, and remembered somewhere that this had sampled a Mandrill song, but wasn’t sure which one. Further digging showed that Kanye flipped the track called ‘ Gilly Hines’ and introduced it to Brandy, who was nearing the closing stages of finishing her album.

Luckily, they managed to get the track done just in time for the album deadline, and even made it as Afrodisiac’s lead single , replacing the Timbaland produced single ‘Black Pepper’. This was produced around the same time as Alicia Keys’ single ‘ You Don’t Know My Name’ and no doubt draws similarities.
