Brandy – B7
Thank all that is holy that Brandy has blessed us with a new album! She does with conviction what another all-star vocalist on this list only did halfway. Give us her incomparable vocals with subtlety and power. Many tout Brandy as the “Vocal Bible,” a superlative lavished on the singer in more recent years with a newer generation of vocalists. However, I call her a Vocal Alien. Her ear is unimaginable. Her ability to stack 10, 12, 20 vocals for an earthshattering harmony is unparalleled. With “B7” we are reintroduced to the reason why she will go down in music history as one of the most important vocal contributions to the craft.
