Some people may feel like 24-year-old Jack Harlow can do no wrong these days.
Well, the Louisville rapper took a rare L during an interview when he slipped up on a quiz about Brandy. The R&B icon even posted a fiery response!
While chopping it up with NYC radio station Hot 97, Jack's knowledge of a pivotal era in hip-hop and R&B was briefly exposed when the hosts played Brandy's 1998 song "Angel In Disguise." Though he was tipped off about Ray-J being her brother, he still had no idea who was singing.
Brandy is a beloved Grammy-winning R&B singer from the 1990s and early 2000s known for smooth bops like "The Boy Is Mine," "I Wanna Be Down" and many more.
She also starred in the '90s sitcom 'Moesha' on UPN, which lasted for six seasons. (Netflix picked up the show in 2020.) "Brandy and Ray-J are siblings?" Jack asks. "Nobody's ever told me that in my life!"
Brandy herself then caught wind of the clip and wrote, "I will murk this dude in rap at 43 on his own beats and then sing his ass to sleep." Fans couldn't believe she popped out with such a savage comeback.
Turns out that Brandy was only kidding about slaying Jack on his own beats. In fact, she didn't know that Jack was a real rapper. "I didn't know he rapped so I was just poking," she tweeted.
At 43, Brandy is still making hella moves, from performing at the NFL's 2022 NFC Championship Game to working with the likes of Chance The Rapper, Anderson .Paak and Daniel Caesar.
The late Lil Keed from Young Thug's YSL label is another younger act who jumped at the opportunity to collab with Brandy or 'Moesha,' which is how he knew about her. The two dropped a track in 2018 called "Smack On God" where Brandy complements Keed's high-pitched lyrics.
Maybe Jack will tap Brandy for a collab one day, too.
He's already shown his appreciation for other important R&B figures like Louisville's own Static Major, known for writing for Aaliyah and Destiny's Child. Static posthumously inspired Jack and Bryson Tiller's intimate 2020 single "Luv Is Dro."
