Brandy took a soft approach on her music journey as she took on Coldplay‘s massive hit “Magic” this week.

Posting the version on her TwitMusic account, the Twitter media uploader site, the song was instantly retweeted by fans.  It skyrocketed on Billboard’s real-time Twitter tracker and hit blogs around the world.

Ray-J created a softer, more sultry R&B melody for his sister Brandy, whose airy voice adds a depth to the traditionally more upbeat tune.

Brandy has been a Coldplay fan for years, sampling their hit song “Clocks” in her song Should I Go.”  She has been in and out of the music scene since 2006, when she took a large amount of time off to deal with personal issues, but the release of her cover has Brandy fans drooling at the thought of a massive return.  For now, “Magic” is all fans can hold onto.
