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.
