Back in 1994 (when artists still released REAL remixes of their songs), Brandy dropped a remix of her hit single “I Wanna Be Down” featuring MC Light, Yo Yo and Queen Latifah. Brandy was THAT CHICK, and at this year’s BET Hip-Hop Awards they celebrated the album’s 20th year anniversary and performed it together.
I have SOOOO many memories linked to this album (we used to practice singing Brokenhearted during study hall, lol) so I was excited to see this performance. Brandy’s voice hasn’t changed at all, and I loved the look she was rockin.
I liked how Brandy mixed plaids and went for a slightly glam Hip-Hop West Coast/Cali Girl look. Her makeup was flawless + the curly hair suits her face so well.Click here to see the performance (unfortunately the embed video autoplays, which is muy annoying); to recreate Brandy’s look you’ll need:
2 plaid shirts (one to wear, one to wrap around your waist)
Cutoff Shorts (if you’re too busy to make your own from an old pair of denim):
Over-Thee-Knee Boots (Brandy wore a pair with a slight heel like below but a flat boot will give the same effect; if you want to toughen the look back up go moto).
Oversized Gold Hoops:
Tons and tons of bangle bangles:
How did you like the performance? Brandy’s look? Comment below!
