Brandy Discusses Her Battle With Depression In New People Magazine Cover Feature

Grammy award-winning American singer Brandy has opened up about her battle with depression in a new interview with People magazine.

The singer who shared insight into her fight with mental illness in her new album “B7” with tracks such as “Borderline” and “Bye Bipolar” revealed her daughter saved her life after she contemplated suicide during her very dark days.


The cover star for the latest issue of People magazine recalled that a 2006 accident she was involved in which claimed the life of a woman sent her spiraling downwards. She also noted that a series of heartbreaks further reinforced the decision to end her life.

However, thoughts of her daughter, Sy’rai Smith who she shares with former partner, Robert Smith, kept her going.

“I remember laying in bed super depressed. I told myself, So, you’re just going to go out like this? That’s wack. You have a daughter. If you can’t do it yourself, do it for her because this is not the way to leave a mark in her life.

“If Sy’rai wasn’t here, I wouldn’t be either. The place that I was in, it just felt like I wasn’t going to make it through”.
