He has released 17 albums to date, with several going two and three times platinum, and he has sold more than 30 million albums worldwide.

Now to mark his 25th anniversary as a recording artist, McKnight will debut his 18th album, Genesis, on 25 August, which will be released worldwide through SRG | SONOS Recording Group and will feature the hit single Forever.

As the lead single from Genesis, Forever quickly hit the Top 20 on Billboard’s Adult R&B Songs chart and continues to surge up the Adult R&B (Urban AC) radio charts all over the country.

Brandy has sold more than 40 million albums worldwide (including the five times platinum selling Never Say Never) and is ranked one of the best-selling female artists in American music history by the RIAA, having sold more than 11 million albums in the United States.

During her reign she recorded five albums: In 1998 – Never Say Never, 2002 – Full Moon, 2004 – Afrodisiac, 2008 – Human, and 2012 – Two Eleven. In 2016, Brandy released Beggin & Pleadin, a bluesy trap-soul melody that was greeted with much admiration. There is more to come as Brandy works towards recording her seventh studio album.
