Happy Birthday to Brandy Norwood
(born February 11, 1979). She is an American recording artist and entertainer. Singles from her debut album, „I Wanna Be Down” and „Baby” became big chart hits, also reaching #1 in the American R&B/Soul chart in 1994. Producer Rodney „Darkchild” Jerkins was consulted to contribute to Norwood’s second album Never Say Never, which was released in June 1998. Norwood co-wrote and produced six songs on the album which yielded her first number-one song on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100, „The Boy Is Mine,” a duet with singer Monica that has become the most successful song by a female duo in music history. The song spent a record-breaking thirteen weeks atop the Billboard charts, and eventually garnering the pair a Grammy Award for „Best R&B Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocal.” Along with Heavy D she recorded a cover version of Michael Jackson’s, ”Rock With You” which appeared on Quincy Jones’ album „Q’s Jook Joint”.
