During the conversation, Brandy told Apple Music about her relationship to fame.

“It’s not as fun as it used to be. Things have definitely changed but I’m blessed to still have the passion for music, and I definitely have a lot of love out there for me and I feel like I have a responsibility to inspire people and to bless people with music,” she said.

“My want for fame and my want for popularity — that doesn’t satisfy me. Do I need people to notice me in Target? Do I need people to recognize me at Ralphs? I don’t have an ego in that way — I’m not addicted to fame. I know what fame did to me early on. I went through a lot,” she continued.

“It took me forever to complete this album, and to finally complete it after 8 years, it just felt like I was whole, and that this is something I can be proud of. I feel like I can breathe now,” she said of recording and releasing B7. Click here to listen to the interview.
