  • Avoiding the dreaded sophomore slump, Brandy delivers a fresh-sounding, well- crafted second album that sounds as much like pop as it does R&B. NEVER SAY NEVER features a song, "Have You Ever?," that was written by mega-songstress Diane Warren and produced by super-producer David Foster. The lead single, "The Boy is Mine" is a duet with fellow R&B'er Monica. Keeping up with the trend of big-time collaborations, multi-platinum rapper Mase makes an appearance on "Top of the World," which seems custom made for jeep jockeys.
  • Although sprinkled with other contributors, most of the album was produced by Rodney Jerkins. With a focus that is sometimes lost on a follow-up to a smashing debut, Brandy's composure and experience shine through in a product that is 16 songs deep. The album also contains a cover of "Everything I Do (I Do It For You)," produced by Foster.
Professional Reviews
Rolling Stone (7/9-23/98, p.136) - 3 Stars (out of 5) - "...Brandy exudes more pizazz than the Hanson brothers combined and bursts with enough naive charm to make Jewel look like a jaded sailor. Her second album bubbles with that same effervescence..."

Entertainment Weekly (6/12/98, p.77) - "...Although her soft, smoky voice is better suited to a croon, there are moments in the gospel-fired `One Voice' that find her effortlessly raising the roof. But she'd rather play it low-key and go with the groove..." - Rating: B

The Source (7/98, p.168) - "...Brandy's R&B/Pop sound ignites a fire within that expresses every female on the brink of womanhood's need to be heard..."
