In addition to being Brandy’s little brother, Ray J is a bonafide celebrity in his own right.

His journey into the spotlight began in his teenage years. Brandy was already a prominent figure in the music industry at that time, and Ray naturally gravitated toward the entertainment world. He released his debut album, Everything You Want, in 1997, but it failed to generate any real buzz. However, his 2005 single “One Wish” from the album Raydiation, was a smash hit.

The song reached No. 11 on the Billboard Hot 100, becoming the highest-selling solo song of Ray’s career. After making strides as an artist, Ray ventured into other areas of entertaining, slowing building his media empire.

“I never really wanted to do the music thing in the beginning,” Ray said during an appearance on The Blackprint with Detavio Samuels (per REVOLT). “At the time, I wasn’t ready. I wanted to hang out with my friends. I just wanted to be a young kid exploring the world. I don’t want to say I was pushed to do the music. But it was in my lap.”

Despite his initial hesitation, Ray built a solid music career, but his time as an entrepreneur gave way to an even larger net worth.
