1994 (album version)
"Brokenhearted" is a R&B ballad performed by American recording artist Brandy. It was written and produced by Keith Crouch and Kipper Jones for the singer's self-titled debut studio album, Brandy and its chorus contains an interpolation of "Cry To Me" as performed by Loleatta Holloway. A remix version of the song, produced by duo Soulshock & Karlin, including vocals by Boyz II Men lead singer Wanya Morris, was released as the album's fourth and final single in August 1995 (see 1995 in music).
In the United States, the song peaked at number nine on the Billboard Hot 100, becoming Brandy's third domestic top ten hit. Fabolous' "Makin Love" featuring Ne-Yo sampled her song on Loso's Way, while Danny!'s instrumental "God Bless The Child" sampled both "Brokenhearted" and the aforementioned "Cry To Me".
