R&B star Brandy is relaunching her career as a rapper under the moniker BRAN' NU.
The Boy Is Mine hitmaker has built up her career as a singer, earning three Grammy nominations for her vocal talents.
But she's adopted the new stage persona for an appearance on superproducer Timbaland's new album, Shock Value 2, on which she shows off her rhyming skills on the song Meet in The Middle.
And Brandy is enjoying the experience because it allows her to express herself in a different form: "What I'm doing on the album is a little bit different than what everybody knows me for. It was a great experience. I got a chance to be another part of myself."
