For most Black millennials, there’s an instant sibling association between Brandy and Ray J. Ever since they co-starred in videos like Brandy’s “I Wanna Be Down” and her hit 90’s sitcom Moesha, they’ve shown each other brother-sister love and been open about their family connection. From music, to television, to film and reality TV, the Norwoods have always had each other’s backs.
