Brand Norwood wows on a bluesy, Ray Charles-styled song about her contrition about stepping out on her man.

Beggin & Pleadin is definitely about trying to get forgiveness and realizing that you may have let go of the best thing that ever happened to you.  Brandy’s vocals are amazing, showcasing more soulfulness than we’ve heard from her in a long time.  The emotional content of this track is strong as her pleading comes through with ease, earnestness, and vulnerability.  The lyrics are good, too, as they leave any pretense behind and get down to brass tacks.  While it may not be the most radio-friendly track in her repertoire, it is one of the most interesting of recent memory.
