R&B songstress and actress Brandy took time from her sitcom Zoe Ever After to debut her new single "Beggin & Pleadin".\u00a0Through a creative brainstorm session with producers\u00a0Warren "Oak"\u00a0Felder\u00a0& Andrew "Pop" Wansel,\u00a0\u00a0Brandy co-wrote "Beggin & Pleadin" -- which showcases some of her best vocals -- with\u00a0Kirby\u00a0Lauren, inspired by the singer's love life. (Brandy\u00a0and her ex-fiance Ryan split in 2014.\u00a0She also has a daughter named Sy'rai with ex Robert Smith.) "This particular song is freedom," Brandy says of her raw and gritty single "Beggin\u00a0& Pleadin." " liberty to express myself in the most interesting, edgiest way possible." "I told her my story, just a bit about what I experienced and how I went through a really hard breakup, and I wasn't able to just let it go and get over it so I was still in that place," she explains of the song, which dropped via SoundCloud\u00a0and\u00a0coincided with the Jan. 5 premiere of\u00a0her new BET sitcom\u00a0Zoe Ever After. "When I did the song, it felt real. It felt like a true apology. Everything I had in that moment, I gave it right there because of how I was feeling. It felt like the song was writing itself." Brandy stated she\u00a0looks forward to bringing the record to the stage.\u00a0"I'm here to touch a lot of people, I'm not here to just touch\u00a0a few -- to touch a lot," she continues. "If you just listen, you'll be able to touch and reach and be able to bring everybody together for music, especially if it's authentic. Unity -- that's what we all need." Brandy closes the song\u00a0with a shout out\u00a0to herself.\u00a0"It's all about what you believe at the end of the day," she says. "I believe that I'm the shit."
