Twenty-five years since she won her first Billboard Music Award, Brandy hit the stage at the 2020 Billboard Music Awards.
Backed by music director Adam Blackstone, the R&B icon delivered a spellbinding medley of old and new hits during Wednesday’s show at L.A.’s Dolby Theatre, starting with “Borderline” off her latest album b7.
She then welcomed Ty Dolla $ign for the debut performance of their collaborative single “No Tomorrow Part 2.” The two showed off their chemistry as they brought their new duet to life.
“I’m a huge fan of Ty Dolla $ign. I think he’s a brilliant artist,” said Brandy. “He’s always shown a lot of respect for my music so I just felt like the sound of our voices would be great.”
For the finale, the 41-year-old singer took it all the way back to 1998 with her classic “Almost Doesn’t Count” off her sophomore album, Never Say Never.
In July, Brandy released her first album in eight years, b7, featuring appearances from Daniel Caesar, Chance the Rapper, and her daughter Sy’rai.
In addition to Brandy, the Billboard Music Awards featured performances from Alicia Keys, Post Malone, Doja Cat, Khalid, Swae Lee, Sia, and En Vogue.
