Grammy winning-singer Brandy took a few notes from “The Color Purple” movie and channeled one of its most unforgettable characters Shug Avery for her new video “Beggin and Pleadin.”

The mini-movie, which premiered exclusively on BET this past Friday (April 15), features Brandy in a sparkling headdress and garb like the sassy juke joint singer who was portrayed so famously by “Being Mary Jane” star Margaret Avery.

“It’s every artist’s dream to inspire and possibly add to another artist’s creative journey,” said Avery to Brandy in a recent social media post. Check out their similar looks in the photo below and tell us what you think about Brandy’s new video:
