Now Playing Tracks

Day 2 with affirmation from my homie @La_La_Latoya . Here is why: Last week marked the 20th anniversary of Brandy’s single “I Wanna Be Down.” While this debut single topped the Billboard charts at the number one spot for four weeks, it was the Human Rhythm Hip-Hop remix that brought rappers MC Lyte, Queen Latifah and Yo-Yo together on a track and etched the song into R&B and Hip-hop history. This 90s anthem affirms that women in Hip-hop can be strong, smitten, sexy and assertive both then and now.
