Tamar Braxton On New Album: “It’s A Grammy Sandwich”

Budding Diva Hits Studio With Darkchild

Tamar Braxton is on the comeback trail.

In a bid to divorce herself from the drama surrounding her sensational axe from The Real, the 38-year-old is re-focussing on music.

And much to the elation of her Tamartians, she’s finally opening up about her brand new album.

Speaking during a sit-down interview with Hollywood Today, the media maven revealed she’s been logging in studio time with a major producer. Also teased were her touring plans for the as yet untitled LP.

Details below…

Grinning ear to ear, the youngest of the Braxton clan named Rodney ‘Darkchild’ Jerkins as the principle hitmaker she’s been in the lab with.

Per the clip above, Tamar described their collective chemistry (with her executive husband Vince Herbert) as a “Grammy sandwich” in the making.

Bold words, but given that her last two projects have indeed yielded nominations it’s not a totally far fetched notion.

That said, she does have her work cut out for her commercially following the poor performance of her last LP ‘Calling All Lovers.’

Do you see it for Tamar?

Your thoughts?

      Yesssss, agree. Stay and Fight, King, Broken Record, all gems that her Record Company slept on. She could be Huge if they just released the right songs, which they NEVER do

      But why is she chasing a Grammy though? Her music making doesn’t seem organic to me. It seems forced and largely driven by ego or a need for validation.

    I actually miss this woman, I didn’t even realize it! … and I couldn’t deal with all her shade on The Real! I’m sure Rodney will give her some great music! He’s reliable! I’d really love to see what they come up with for her new project! Tay’s obviously another talented Braxton!

        I’m not that invested in Tamar’s camp (#1), so I’m not taking on any stress and worrying about her musical output! She’s the artist! It’s not my job! If I like what she’s offering, I’ll support it! Simple as that!

        As for Bran, that topic requires that we both have some background knowledge on a situation that’s taken place years ago (#2) and (#3) an understanding of where certain points derived from! I’m not interested in a lengthy exchange with someone looking to get a rise out of me! … (#4) … and lastly, I’m just not here for debating with a f*** boy on a blog that’s probably in a shitty mood everyday of their life (“Ughhh”)!

      That is the problem with you Tamar fans love to put others done vocally but, Tamar voice is very pitchy and inconsistent. Live performances are out there for the world to see, oh and you guys alway have a reason for her inconsistency. Leave Bey and Riri out of this, and go get some sale for calling all lovers

    I’m here for this. Rodney has knows how to create magic and has been one of my all time fave producers since Vanessa Williams back in the day (look it up) he may not produce a crossover hit but he knows how to craft Grammy worthy timeless classics.

    Her last album was amazing and deserved way more recognition, but unfortunately her antics outshine her talent.

    Tamar is definitely talented and I hope this album gives her a bit more success….Having said that, I am way more stoked to hear Toni’s new effort (Love, Marriage, Divorce Part 2). Its been too long since I heard that sweet voice.

    I hope that means she’s working with LaShawn Daniels again cause he wrote some great stuff for Love & War. I’m a bit iffy thinking Darkchild is known for bangers and Tamar can’t really work her way through it but if they find some common ground like he did for Toni in the early 00s it’s gonna be AMAZING!

    Calling All Lovers was a great album but they released the wrong singles at the wrong time. Angels and Demons should’ve been first but by the time it was released, it was competing with her other singles for airplay and ppl didn’t even know it was out.

    CAL was a great body of work it was a more mature effort than LAW in my opinion. Hopefully this new album is a balance between both albums to satisfy all of her fan base.

    Dang… I missed Tamar. Honey, that’s all that matters your Man, Munchkin and Music. Better get into that surrogate life. She and Vince have their embryos just implant them and get your babies.

    Don’t sleep on CAL when I put that record on I always find myself screaming “Tamarrrrr, you betta COME ON with that marriage music.”

    Simple Things gets me every time. Whooo!

    Maybe she is maturing into her fine wine stage, as this is the BEST interview I’ve heard her in for a long time.
    Came across so well, so I hope the project shines over pettyville shades.

    Less is more for her as she took on waaay too much during Calling All Lovers era and most of us picked up on that before the album came out.

    I enjoy her voice when it’s on point as her range is great.

    I thought CAL was a Grammy sandwich and one of the best R&B records released in a while. This new album is gonna have to come with a lot to top her last 1. I just hope she stays away from the Beyoncé-ish songs. There were a few tracks that I felt were trying to take on songs from bey’s self titled. Anywho, I miss her, can’t wait!!
