LOS ANGELES » Brandy is suing a record label that she says has refused to allow her to release new music.

The Grammy-winning singer sued Chameleon Entertainment Group in Los Angeles Superior Court on Tuesday, claiming it won’t allow her to record or release new music in an attempt to get her to sign a new recording deal.

The suit says Brandy signed with Chameleon in 2011, which released her album “Two Eleven” in 2012. The deal gave Chameleon the option to release four more Brandy records, but her suit says the label refused to allow her to record a new album.

The lawsuit says Brandy terminated her contract with Chameleon but wants a judge’s ruling that it is void.

An email sent to Chameleon seeking comment was not immediately returned today.
