Whitney Houston may no longer be with us, but her memory lives on in the music of the artists she inspired. One such artist is Brandy, who revealed last night that her upcoming album will be titled Two Eleven, both because that’s Brandy’s birthday and because it’s the day the legendary singer passed away. (We can think of another diva who recently named an album after a number that was dear to her.) During yesterday’s show at the Factory in Los Angeles, the “It All Belongs To Me” singer also performed her 2008 single “Right Here (Departed)” in honor of Houston. Watch below.

Brandy has also revealed that Two Eleven will drop this June and feature collaborations with Sean Garrett, Chris Brown, Bangladesh, Frank Ocean, Hit-Boy, Ester Dean, and Danja.
