Broken Silence is the third full-length studio album and fourth recording by American female hip-hop artist Foxy Brown. It was released on July 17, 2001. The album debuted at #5 on Billboard Hot 100 with first week sales of 123,000 copies. To date the album has sold 553,000 copies in the U.S and more than 1 million copies worldwide. It is certified Gold by the RIAA. This is currently Foxy's only album to be released in the 2000s, being her last studio album.
Foxy Brown began recording a more street-oriented album, much different from her mainstream image with Chyna Doll.
Rapper Nicki Minaj has stated that this album was a huge influence to her as a young girl.
"Oh Yeah" is the first single from Trinidadian American female hip-hop artist Foxy Brown's third album Broken Silence. The music video was shot in Jamaica in the middle of 2001. It starts with Foxy Brown rapping in a forest near the river and later with her then boyfriend and the track's featuring artist Spragga Benz.
"BK Anthem", a song that was originally recorded and released as a street single in late 2000 was released as a B-side to the "Oh Yeah"s single. The music video was shot with a camcorder style. The song peaked at number 82 on the U.S. Billboard R&B charts and failed to make the Billboard Hot 100
The final single released from "Broken Silence" was "Tables Will Turn", it was released in late 2001. The single features Baby Cham, who is now recognised as Cham. The Music video finished with a snippet of the then very popular album song Candy.
"Candy" was never officially released, only as a vinyl release. The song had no official video, and Brown refused to concede to Def Jams wishes to release the song, based on its huge popularity, instead, preferring to release Tables Will Turn. Despite this, and the fact it had little to no official promotion, no music video, it was hugely successful on the radio; it managed to chart at 48 on the R&B/Hip-Hop Singles & Track Chart and number 10 on the Rap charts. "Candy" is the highest charted song from the album. The song was also featured on many soundtracks, noticeably, the film The 40-Year-Old Virgin, Dark Angel Sound track  and Friday after next.
