India Arie slammed Jack Harlow for not knowing Brandy and Ray J are siblings.
Jack got himself back in the hot seat after not identifying Brandy’s voice and not knowing she’s the sister of Ray J. Many people felt some way about the matter, but India Arie might take the trophy for being the most bothered.
On Thursday, the r&b songstress shared her opinions on the ordeal on her Instagram story. In a series of posts. India says, “Just because you make Black music doesn’t mean you know Black culture. If U don’t know Brandy’s voice when you hear it … WHO EVEN ARE YOU?”
She continued, “WHEN AN ACTUAL MUSICIAN! WHO MAKES BLACK MUSIC Deduces one of the industries’ MOST IMPORTANT VOICES @Brandy to [Ray J’s] SISTER? who is famous (mostly) for his Proximity to Kim Kardashian.”

For context purposes, HOT 97 played a sample of Brandy’s song “Angel In Disguise” and asked Jack to decipher the artist. However, he couldn’t and initially guessed Aaliyah. Host Peter Rosenberg tried to assist Jack, giving him a hint of her famous brother.
“Her brother is the reason why a lot of people are famous, you could argue,” Rosenberg said.
“Who’s Ray J’s sister?” Jack asked confusingly. “Brandy and Ray J are siblings? Nobody’s ever told me that in my life.”
