Tonight after the #ASCAP #WomenBehindTheMusic event honorng #JazmineSullivan Event friend to the site Silent had the chance to interview Jazmine Sullivan after the show and Jazmine had this to say:
All good things must come to an end and after celebrating four successful seasons of THE GAME on BET, the Network has announced production is underway on the show’s final two seasons. In January 2011 the cult following of The Game proved that the show was a fan favorite with 7.7 million viewers for its premiere debut on BET. With seasons eight and nine, we’re excited to end on a high note by giving Sabers fans a chance to bid farewell to their favorite players on and off the field.
What made you decide that seasons eight and nine would be the last for The Game?
Shows do end; that is a part the business. I’m very happy BET gave The Game five additional seasons to explore these characters and this world. We made history when we got to the network and it’s nice to be able to celebrate the great achievements of the show.
Looking back, is there any storyline that you would have changed?
No, I don’t live in that place. I don’t regret anything that we’ve done.

Brandy was a teen she was young & fly and the girl could sing and dance. I was in love! Brandy’s first album “Brandy” came out exactly 20 years ago, on September 27, 2014! Brandy is the self-titled debut album by American R&B singer Brandy. It was released by Atlantic Records on September 27, 1994 in North America, December 5 in the United Kingdom and on several dates in Europe and Oceania, starting on February 3, 1995. The album contains a range of contemporary genres, and the songs are a mix of soft hip hop soul, pop and contemporary mid–1990s R&B. They were chiefly produced by Keith Crouch who would contribute all four single releases from the album. Aside from Crouch, Norwood worked with a range of other writers and producers, including R&B group Somethin’ for the People, Arvel McClinton, and Damon Thomas and young Robin Thicke.
Four singles were released from the album, two of which became number-one hits on the Billboard Hot R&B Singles. “I Wanna Be Down” was chosen as the album’s lead single, reaching the top ten in the United States and the top 20 in Australia and New Zealand. The song was critically lauded, and was regarded as a standout track on Brandy. The album’s second single, “Baby” was also well received and charted even higher. With the following two singles, “Best Friend” and “Brokenhearted” also reaching the top ten in the US, Norwood established herself as one of the most successful of the new breed of urban R&B female vocalists to emerge during the mid-to late 1990s. It also garnered Norwood two Grammy Award nominations for Best New Artist and one for the album’s second single, “Baby” for Best Female R&B Vocal Performance at the 38th Grammy Awards in 1996.
