Tamar Braxton is back and is drawing on real life for her her new single ‘My Man.’
Viewers of the current season of ‘Braxton Family Values’ will have seen the singer and her sisters spilling on the controversial split of their parents.
And now Ms. She, Me, Her chronicles the narrative on the debut offering from her next studio album.
Emotionally charged, the song sees Tamar lamenting about a woman, known to and loved by her family, who goes on to “take” her man.
The TC and Corey Rooney penned production is the first release on the songbird’s new label Tamartian Land Records.

While it’s difficult to see how this would fit into the contemporary radio climate, it almost doesn’t matter because it’s strong enough to grab interest on its own accord.
Vocally, Tamar turns in a stunning performance and conveys each lyric with conviction.
‘My Man’ is also a welcome throwback thematically to the pre-Girl-Power era.
Sure, we’re all for the fist-pumping ‘Independent Women’ narrative that has been “a thing” since the early 00s. But it’s so populous that it’s almost frowned upon these days to sing about the trifling “other woman.” So much so that it dilutes the pool of topics female acts can pull from and largely sees them aiming their lyrical bow and arrows at the man. As such, there was something deliciously delightful to hear Tamar scold the “heifer” who stole her bae.
After the lukewarm ‘Calling All Lovers’ album, this has renewed our excitement about Tamar musically.
‘My Man’ is available to purchase on iTunes.
