Without a proper album last year, Tamar Braxton stormed the Billboard Adult R&B Songs chart and nearly claimed her second number-one single with â€œCrazy Kind of Love.â€ The R&B superstar is destined to get closer to securing more hits when she releases not one but two new albums soon.
Braxton spilled the beans about follow-ups to 2017â€™s Bluebird of Happiness in a recent interview with Entertainment Tonightâ€™s Brice Sanderâ€.
â€œIâ€™ve said this before, this is my best work yet, but this is my best Tamar yet, so therefore this is my super best work yet,â€ she expressed. â€œThis is me living in my truth, being this new Tamar, this newfound relationship with myself, and Iâ€™m really loving the music thatâ€™s coming out of me now.â€
When asked if the new music would expound on those past, difficult life situations, particularly from last summer, Braxton said, â€œI do definitely speak about those dark times and definitely those times where I needed help and didnâ€™t know how to cry out for it. And so itâ€™s a lot of inspirational, magical songs that will really help people who donâ€™t know who to turn to and needs to be healed and donâ€™t know how to heal.â€
During the promo trail for Bluebird of Happiness, Braxton revealed it was her final studio album. â€œThere are a lot of things that I want to do and a lot of things that are in the works,â€ she previously shared in a 2017 ET interview. â€œThereâ€™s a lot of things that are going on in my relationship and me being close to this music industry, and whatever I can do to eliminate all of the stress and problems off of my relationship, I would rather do that.â€
In 2018, Braxton dropped multiple shelved music videos from different album eras, including â€œThe Making of Youâ€ (Bluebird of Happiness), â€œLove Itâ€ (Calling All Lovers), and â€œPiecesâ€ (Love & War).
Back in 2020, the Recording Academyâ€™s President/CEO Harvey Mason Jr. spoke with Rated R&B and revealed what it was like to work with Braxton on â€œComing Homeâ€ from Calling All Lovers. Revisit it here.
Rated R&B also celebrated the 15th anniversary of Toni Braxtonâ€™s Libra album, which features songwriting and vocal contributions from Tamar. Check it out here.
