From doo wop pop chick to top chick? That’s clearly the motto ‘Braxton Family Values’ breakout star Tamar Braxton has adopted. Indeed, the multi-octave songbird has long sung of her desire to soar on the solo tip.
And, if she thinks that ‘Love & War’ – the lead single from her forthcoming, yet-titled LP will be the key to flying the coop…then she just may be right! Fire awaits below:
A Toni Braxton/Keyshia Cole cocktail of sorts, the singer’s soaring vocals sell this song in ways that her older sibling or Cole may have not been able to. For, despite her polarizing personality, those who love or hate Tamar for her oft-over the top ways cannot deny she’s proven time and time again that she can back it up.
A telling narrative with dramatic (much like the songstress herself) instrumentation, ‘Love & War’ was a full listening experience without being “too much”. Undeniably worth the wait, it will be interesting to see how ‘War’ battles against its electropop counterparts on Billboard.
Either way, this will be on constant repeat at TGJ headquarters!
