On this day in music history: September 27, 1994 - “Brandy”, the debut album by Brandy is released. Produced by Keith Crouch, Kenneth Crouch, Arvel McClinton, Somethin’ for the People, and Damon Thomas, it is recorded at Human Rhythm Studios, Aire L.A. Studios, Swing Bopulous Studios in Los Angeles, CA, and Ameraycan Studios in North Hollywood, CA from Fall 1993 - Summer 1994. Singer Brandy Norwood will work mostly with producer and songwriter Keith Crouch and R&B trio Somethin’ For The People on her debut release. A number of up and coming songwriters including former Kids Incorporated regular Rahsaan Patterson and a then unknown Robin Thicke will also contribute songs to the project. The album will be a huge success for the then fifteen year old singer/actress. It will spin off four hit singles including “I Wanna Be Down” (#1 R&B, #6 Pop), “Baby” (#1 R&B, #4 Pop), and “Brokenhearted” (#2 R&B, #9 Pop). The album will also earn Brandy two Grammy nominations including one for Best New Artist in 1995. “Brandy” will peak at number six on the Billboard R&B album chart, number twenty on the Top 200, and is certified 4x Platinum in the US by the RIAA.
Meet the Reykjavík Metropolitan Police, serving the capital of Iceland. By the looks of their incredible Instagram account, a normal day includes holding kittens, eating candy and wearing false mustaches.
For the record the Icelandic police are probably the best police force in the world, There has only been one instance where an officer shot and killed a civilian in the entire history of the country (which is nearly a hundred years) and everyone was completely devastated by it, the police especially — because, as made clear in their statements after the incident, they understand their function is to protect the people. Not to mention that their general police go unarmed except for special squads.
Let’s run through some more facts while we’re on the subject: Compared to 31,000+ shooting deaths in the US in 2009, Iceland had… 4, because they have very rigorous screening processes for gun permits. There is very little economic disparity between upper, middle and lower classes, and social welfare programs take care of their people. Drug use affects less than 1% of the population between 15 and 65 years old, and 90% of drug-related court cases are settled with a fine rather than jail time. Violent crime is virtually non-existent. [x]
Iceland is like if you took the entire idea of chill and personified it as an country, and this exemplifies that.
