Brandy’s ‘Beggin and Pleadin’ will put you on your knees


I can’t get enough. Brandy ‘s new song “Beggin and Pleadin” is so good you sort of feel bad for those who haven’t heard it yet.

With a mix of ’60s doo-wop, trap and Southern guitar blues, Brandy commands the tune. In “Beggin and Pleadin” it’s clear she knows she’s being hurt — “Damn boy why you make it so hard/stop putting your foot on my heart” — yet says “wave me back,” hoping he’ll come to his senses.

Brandy’s gospel-laden vocals start with a rolling boil and only get hotter and more raw as the song stomps on, and the “good God almighty” and “wave me back” repeating phrases stay with you long after the song ends.
