BRANDY INKS NEW DEAL WITH 'EPIC'


Brandy has inked a new deal with Epic Records, a label spokesperson confirms to Billboard.com, declining further comment. The artist, who was most recently signed to Atlantic, is prepping her Epic debut for release later this year.

Brandy’s final Atlantic album, 2004’s "Afrodisiac," has sold 416,000 copies to date in the United States, according to Nielsen SoundScan.

Last December, Brandy, born Brandy Norwood, was cleared of all charges stemming from a fatal car crash the year before, including a recommended misdemeanor vehicular manslaughter charge, which carries a penalty of up to a year in jail.

The artist had rear-ended another car while traveling on an L.A. freeway. The driver of the car, a 38-year-old mother of two, died the following day from injuries she had sustained.
