About this album

Afrodisiac is the fourth studio album by American recording artist Brandy Norwood, released by Atlantic Records on June 28, 2004 on most international territories and on June 29, 2004 in Canada and the United States. A departure from her previous work with Rodney Jerkins and his Darkchild camp, Brandy worked with Timbaland and his protégé Walter Millsap III on the majority of the production of the album, featuring additional credits by Warryn Campbell, Organized Noise, Theron Feemster, Big Chuck, and Kanye West.

The album debuted at number three on the U.S. Billboard 200 but had a short run on the charts, resulting into mediocre domestic sales of 416,000 copies and a gold certification by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA). Outside the States, Afrodisiac scored minor success, missing the top thirty on the majority of the charts it appeared on. The critical response to Afrodisiac was generally positive, garnering Brandy her strongest reception yet, with Allmusic comparing it to “Janet Jackson at her best.” The following year, it received a Grammy Award nomination for Best Contemporary R&B Album but lost to Usher’s Confessions album.

While lead single “Talk About Our Love” reached the top ten in the United Kingdom, later singles failed to score successfully on the popular music charts. In mid-2005, after eleven years with the company Brandy asked for and received a release from Atlantic Records, making Afrodisiac her final studio album on the label.

    What delusion is this about "no substance"? Afrodisiac contains some of Bran's deepest tracks. I mean "Should I Go" alone >>>>>

    Her best album as far as I'm concerned.

    The weakest of the six, it bit too showy & no substance. That said "How I Feel" is classic Brandy & its first two singles are classics.

    This album had so many potential hits and should have had the same success as Usher's Confessions back in 2004.

    This really feels like what Aaliyah would've been doing if she was still alive. Not only because of the two mentions of her (in Turn it Up and Should I Go), but because the entire album has this elegance that Timbaland reserved for his collaborations with Baby Girl. It really works as an album - I always want to listen to it from start to finish. It was a flop, so what? The quality of the music is astounding. The ending of the All Music Guide review said it all: "Whatever Brandy decides to do, consider her mark made."

    Like CrazySexyCool was of the 90's, minus the commercial success.

    I don't know if it is a classic for me (because Tim's using the same beats and styles over and over again) But I love it, I don't get bored or don't skip a song, easy and fun to listen :)

    Timbaland seems like he wants to give the same sound to everybody, regardless of their different vocal qualities... But it's still a good album :) my favorites are Who I Am, Talk About Our Love, Where You Wanna Be, How I Feel & Should I Go :D
