WATCH: Brandy Performs ‘I Wanna Be Down’
Let’s flashback to 1994 when Brandy blazed the charts with her single, “I Wanna Be Down.”
The song easily became an anthem for teenage crushes. But when the soft-voiced singer with her signature braids came with the hip-hop flared remix featuring Queen Latifah, YoYo, and MC Lyte, it took the chart topper to another level.
Laid-back and smooth with rugged lyrics that spoke to the fellas in a real, but ladylike tone, the remix showcased all the elements of fly.
Celebrating the 20th anniversary of the song and collaboration, Brandy was joined by rap royalty for a classic performance at the 2014 BET Hip-Hop Awards, which aired Tuesday night.
