Rank #1: Brandy

Podcast cover

Early into this episode of Soul Sisters, Brandy remarks on the "hundred thousand butterflies" she feels when we remind her of how much success she's had, on the Billboard charts and beyond, in her 20-plus year career as an entertainer. From her lightning hot debut album that she put out when she was only 15, to her Grammy win for the best-selling female duet of all time "The Boy Is Mine," to her legendary work with Whitney Houston in Cinderella and her starring role on Moesha, Brandy has been an inspirational figure for as long as most people under 40 can remember.
