Singer Brandy Norwood just unveiled the artwork to her upcoming album Two Eleven.

Check it out here.

When you want to make a statement, put on your Diva weave, strike a Diva pose and get the Diva retouchers in!

I can’t seem to identify the designers but she’s donning some pretty navy suede boots, a pair of shimmering slashed navy trousers, a navy brasserie (yes I’ve checked right up close it’s definitely not black), a huge statement geo/tribal black and gold necklace and of course a sleek, “bitch hold my ponytail”, ponytail.

The pose is empowering, confident and sexy, and in the same vein as Mariah Carey’s The Emancipation of Mimi cover, in the sense that it is a break away from her usual portrait and half length styled shots. Her arms outstretch against the walls clearly signify her new found strength and her new “I’m comin’ through y’all” attitude.

As per usual these days, the Deluxe edition cover is just a lazy, uninspired colorised version of the standard edition artwork with a really amateur looking vignette applied. I’m pretty sure an outtake from the album shoot would have faired much better.

Anyway Ms Norwood clearly means business this time around, let’s hope she delivers the goods! The album is slated for release on October 16th.

P.S: I know I may go one about this a lot but I wish artist’s would remain consistent with the artwork and promotional images for each era (The caricature artwork for Put It Down doesn’t sit anywhere with this classy image!). Rihanna will always remain my perfect example of how it should be done.
