Brandy didn’t throw the whole genre under the bus, she did name a few artists she felt was doing their respective parts to keep R&B out there. “I think Trey Songz is holding it down. Kelly Rowland is holding it down. I think Monica is holding it down on her end. I think it takes all of us to keep doing it until it comes back,” Brandy said.

Besides talking about the state of R&B, Brandy said she hoped she got the chance to perform at the 2012 BET Awards. She hasn’t been asked to perform, but she wants her fans to pray about it. Brandy also wants fans to tweet BET executive Stephen G. Hill and petition him to get Brandy on the BET stage.

As of right now, the praying and tweeting hasn’t done anything, but we will see if Brandy performs at the BET Awards when they air live on July 1st.
