Traci Braxton is ready for round 2!

The third eldest of the Braxton clan stepped out for her first taste of solo shine with 2014’s ‘Last Call’ (click here to watch) and now – four years after seeing its parent album, ‘Crash & Burn,’ set R&B charts ablaze – is ready to call on fans again for support of the follow-up.

Taking to the hit WeTV series ‘Braxton Family Values’ to tease, “Traybird” teamed up with her legendary, Grammy-award winning sister Toni Braxton (as well as Trina and Towanda) to assist with the first taste of what that follow-up will sound like.

She’s back!

Nearly two years after introducing her faithful fans (affectionately called #Arianators) to the gems found aboard her tertiary album, ‘Dangerous Woman’ (see:  ‘Into You,’ ‘Side to Side’ featuring Nicki Minaj, and many more), Ariana Grande‘s returned with the copiously teased tune, ‘No Tears Left to Cry.’

The high octane cut not only show Grande flexing those oft-envied vocals, but also sees her continue her scrumptious synthesis of pop & Urban sounds that have lined her past offerings.

With claims of “inauthenticity” and “appropriation” aplenty, the center of Iggy Azalea‘s fall from grace has not been centered around poor promotion or musical missteps (as most of her releases BANG), but instead have been concentrated on race and culture.  This idea, the rapstress asserted in a recent sit down with GQ magazine, is not far from her gaze – even if she doesn’t talk about it.

Will her impassioned plea fall on deaf ears?  Read inside and see the stunning photos that accompany the tell-all interview:
