The Brandy looks like a Pink-Haired Afrofuturistic Deity in a recent Instagram post thanks to this cotton-candy hue.

Brandy’s latest Instagram post on December 1 sparked a lot of excitement among her fans, that thought it was for potential new songs. Brandy appears to be an android in the picture while sporting bangs, straight pastel pink hair, and a gilded bodysuit.

We also initially mistook this image for an album cover as well. But it turns out it is neither an album cover nor an actual photograph. Brandy appears to be from another planet, but that is because it is the work of graphic artist Ozriy. Brandy, the R&B legend had straight, cotton candy-colored hair parted in the middle with wispy bangs. The bulk of her hair swept behind her shoulders, with black roots that blended into a stunning rose color.

The second photo in the post revealed a clearer view of Brandy’s bangs and a little pulled-back glimpse of her with her roots out of the frame. This time, the fringe has been shaved into a V-shape that falls directly between her brows, giving them an almost extraterrestrial appearance that goes with the afrofuturistic style.

Black cultural expression known as Afrofuturism links the past, present, and future. In his 1993 article “Black to the Future,” author Mark Dery introduced the phrase. The work examines speculative literature (sci-fi, fantasy, and the like) through interviews with Black authors and artists Tricia Rose, Greg Tate, and Samuel R. Delaney.

Before Dery wrote about it in the 1990s, afro-futurist aesthetics had already begun to take shape. Black artists established the movement’s aesthetic, aural, and sartorial foundation in the 1950s.

Afrofuturism is described as “a fluid philosophy shaped by generations of artists, singers, scholars, and activists whose aim is to reconstruct ‘Blackness’ in the culture,” according to Taylor Crumpton, who wrote an essay for Architectural Digest detailing its origins. In a 2018 piece for the Huffington Post, Jaime Broadnax argues that the movement must be informed by Black history and African culture to flourish.

It is insufficient to have a story that only has a Black character in a futuristic setting. It must be rooted in and unapologetically celebrate the originality and creativity of Black culture for it to be considered Afrofuturism. Through forms of expression like music and visual arts, the movement acknowledges the Black experience while forming a vision of the future.

It’s difficult to believe this wasn’t taken with a camera. The finer details of Brandy’s face, such as her stunning high cheekbones, were beautifully nailed by Ozriy. They don’t want me to go pink, Brandy stated in her caption, along with the hashtag #BlackBarbie, after thanking Ozriy for his incredible work.

Even though Brandy enjoys experimenting with her hairstyles, we rarely see her experimenting with vibrant hair colors like pink or orange. Perhaps the singer-songwriter is getting inspiration from this simulation for her appearance in 2023. For the record, we would absolutely love to see Brandy with pink hair if she needs a push.
