She released her third album, Full Moon, in 2003—the same year that she had her first child, a daughter named Sy'rai Iman Smith, with then-boyfriend Robert Smith, a music producer.
In 2004, Brandy released her fourth album, Afrodisiac. She didn't treat her fans to her follow-up record, Human, until four years later. Between recording Afrodisiac and Human,
Brandy's life came undone: She was involved in a car accident that claimed the life of another driver. Brandy was never arrested or charged with a crime, but the accident clearly took its toll on her life. According to the singer, 2008's Human (released after the accident) is one of her "most personal and emotional albums." Around that time, Brandy explained in an interview her experience with music's healing powers: "Over the past couple of years I've been trying to get myself together, and I've been blessed to reconnect with my purpose, which is music."
In 2010, Brandy returned to television, performing as a contestant on the hit dance-competition show Dancing with the Stars. That same year, she starred in a VH-1 reality TV series, Brandy and Ray J: A Family Business, along with her brother and parents.
In 2012, Brandy released her sixth studio album, Two Eleven.
