Album review: Brandy and Ray J, “A Family Business”


A collection of songs performed by various Norwood family members (including mom Sonja and dad Willie), “Business” is awkward and adorable and really, really wholesome. It’s probably the only “urban” record you’ll hear all year where any mentions of “eight balls” are references to playing pool.

Brandy’s solo tracks are welcome reminders of what a great voice she has; Ray’s Chris-Brown-goes-to-the-disco tracks are less essential and everything else is critic-proof. Who’s going to criticize Brandy’s daughter, Sy’rai Smith, blithely autotuning her way through a pint-size banger about how much she loves her family — even though it’s awful?
