Singer and actress Brandy Norwood had a uniquely close relationship with the late Whitney Houston, so it’s no surprise her new album will be in part a tribute to her mentor. Brandy’s new album will be called Two Eleven, a reference to the day Houston passed as well as Brandy’s birthday. VIBE reports:

It looks like a new Brandy album isn’t too far out on the horizon.

Brandy announced at a West Hollywood show Friday night (March 2) that she would soon be releasing Two Eleven, later tweeting a release date of June 2012 to her followers.

According to Rap-Up, the title represents her birthday, Feb. 11, as well as the passing of her mentor Whitney Houston.

“It’s just gonna be a different album, but of course expressing the love that I feel now and the struggles and different situations that I’ve gone through in the past,” Brandy said to Rap-Up.
