Last month, when we first played Brandy's new single, "Right Here (Departed)," I immediately started wondering what the concept for the video would be. So, when I saw that the clip had its world premiere last night, I was excited. B-Rocka usually comes strong. Plus, I'd heard about the I Am Legend slant it might take. Eh, not so much. The clip shows Brandy reaching out from "the beyond" providing comfort to those she was forced to leave behind. That's it. No, not legendary in the least, but you know what? It works. Sometimes, the simplest of concepts make for great theater. Maybe I just missed seeing her face on my screen. It might just be that, since I even forgive the latest meaningless Ray J cameo. I mean, he is family. Producer Rodney Jerkins also appears, as does fledgling actor (and husband of Tia Mowry) Corey Hardrict. Check the clip below and let us know what you think. Brandy's back! And even in its simplest form, "Right Here" is right on time.
