R&B veteran Brandy Norwood hasn’t released a studio album since 2012 and she’s holding her record label Chameleon Entertainment and its president, Breyon Prescott, accountable for her stalling career.

Entertainment Weekly reports that Norwood, 37, is suing Chameleon Entertainment for a cool one million dollars compensatory damages as her last album, Two Eleven was supposed to be the start of a five-album deal and obviously nothing has come from that.

“Pursuant to the Agreement, Chameleon was obligated to pay recording costs for the second album in the amount of $600,000,” 10 percent of which it would owe “promptly following receipt of notice that Norwood had commenced recording of the second album,” the lawsuit alleges while noting “events occurred that led Defendants to want to delay Norwood from working on her second album” and RCA — Chameleon’s distributor — terminated her distribution deal, leaving Prescott’s company “in a bind.”

According to the lawsuit, Brandy was also left in a bind when Chameleon put the sub-zero freeze on her contract in April 2014, where they claim she had “failed to cooperate” with the label.

Brandy began her career in 1990 before catapulting to fame with her self-titled debut album in 1994, which sold six million copies worldwide and also serving as dual threat in television. Over the course of her career she has won a Grammy Award for her classic duet with Monica, “The Boy is Mine”, one American Music Award, and seven Billboard Music Awards.

At the top of the year, she released a new single in “Beggin’ and Pleadin” which was produced by famed producers, Pop & Oak.
