Update, May 17 at 9:19 a.m.: Brandy has seen the clip of Jack Harlow not knowing “Angel in Disguise” and responded accordingly. “I will murk this dude in rap at 43 on his own beats and then sing is ass to sleep,” she tweeted May 17. Before you doubt Brandy’s rap abilities, watch her play rapper Xplicit Lyrics on ABC’s recently canceled Queens. Brandy later clarified that she was just having fun and it was “all love,” but we’d still like to hear Harlow respond — and not with a song about wanting to “do more with her than do a feature.”
Original story follows.
Ye is a Jack Harlow fan. The rapper formerly known as Kanye West tapped Harlow for his debut event for Donda 2 earlier this year and went so far as calling Harlow one of the “top 5 out right now.” But Harlow hasn’t quite returned the favor and read up on the Book of Yeezus. If he did, Harlow would know a bit about Ray J, who’s intertwined with Ye thanks to their mutual ex, Kim Kardashian. Then, for instance, he’d be able to recognize the distinctive voice of Ray J’s famous sister, singer and actress Brandy. Instead, Harlow learned they were siblings live and in public, during an interview on Hot 97.
For the New York radio station’s “White Ish Wednesday,” hosts Ebro, Laura Stylez, and Rosenberg quizzed White Boy of the Moment Harlow on his musical knowledge. When they played Brandy’s “Angel in Disguise,” he was clearly struggling. “Aaliyah?” he blurted out, looking puzzled. The hosts resorted to giving him hints, with Rosenberg and Ebro telling Harlow the singer’s brother had a sex tape that made people famous. “Who’s Ray J’s sister?” Harlow asked. The hosts got a laugh out of it, with Ebro marveling, “That’s amazing.” “Y’all got a good clip on that one,” Harlow joked, red-faced.
