Singer Brandy has claimed that she thought about committing suicide after her tragic 2006 car accident, which left a woman dead.
"I remember laying in bed super depressed, I [told] myself, 'So, you're just going to go out like this? That's wack," she shared with People Magazine. "You have a daughter. If you can't do it for 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."
Brandy's new album has received critical acclaim. She says she was worried that her album, B7, was too personal.
"I was thinking, 'Did I go too deep? Did I go too far in what I was singing about?' But I didn't dwell on those thoughts -- I'm in a place now," says the singer, "where I can be proud of moving in the right direction."
