WATCH: Brandy Channels Margaret ‘Shug’ Avery From 'The Color Purple' In New Video

Brandy debuted the video for her new single "Beggin and Pleadin" on Friday. The music video is set in an old school juke joint as she pays homage to the classic 1985 film The Color Purple. 

The music video happened to drop on Margaret Avery's birthday, the actress who played Shug Avery in the film. 

Brandy channeled her character in the video and Ms. Avery wrote a message, praising the singer on Instagram:
