By way of first week sales garnered by her 2013 release ‘Love & War’ and her reign on Reality TV, Tamar Braxton holds an enviable position in R&B.
So, there’s no doubt that her fans had high hopes for her latest set ‘Calling All Lovers‘, which-despite failing to fly commercially- was well-received by her core base.
This month, said hopes have been dashed to flames.
Surprising news below…
Featuring lyrics and arrangements creator by the ubiquitous singer/songwriter Tiyon Christian, the R&B album has learned that it has no chance of winning an award at next year’s ceremony when it take place on February 12th 2017.
For, when members of the Grammy voting committee received their first-round ballots recently they found that ‘Lovers’ was not submitted to compete in the categories it was expected to nab nominations in.
These being Best Urban Contemporary Album and Best R&B Album.
Worrying, as it was released on October 2nd 2015, almost a year before the ceremony’s September 30th 2016 nominations deadline.
First-round ballots are due back on the 4th of November.
