Nearly four months after tapping sisters Toni, Towanda, and Trina to assist on ‘Broken Things’ – a critically acclaimed gem lifted from her August due sophomore set – Traci Braxton returns by her lonesome with another offering from the LP entitled ‘Lifeline.’
Penned by Nye the Songwrita & Mariam Aquarium, with production helmed by Dave Lindsey, the emotional cut comes as an ode to the man in Braxton’s life.
“Secure and safe / And what you do reciprocate / Protect me from tidal waves / And anything that comes my way,” she belts. “Knight in shining armor you / And anything you say I will do it / And I will never face no type of danger here with you baby.”
Before you tune into ‘Braxton Family Values’ to see the behind the scenes action of the creation of this song and its parent album, tuck in below for your first full listen to ‘Lifeline’:
Could Nicki Minaj and 6ix9ine be well on their way to their first respective stints at #1 on the Hot 100? If the steam behind their joint single, ‘FEFE,’ is any indication the answer is “yes.”
Despite Minaj’s contributions to the track being greeted with controversy (as 6ix9ine’s currently facing allegations stemming from a reported sex act that included a child), the tune’s fared well on the charts.
Boasting a top 5 debut upon its premiere on the Hot 100 last week, this week saw the cut step up to the #3 position. Now, to add to its success, ‘FEFE’s been certified Gold.
While ‘Whitney,’ the first authorized documentary about the life of pop icon Whitney Houston, left jaws dropped from its recounts of the singer’s troubled dealings with drugs, rumored lesbian relationship, and tumultuous relationship with ex-husband/singer Bobby Brown, the most shocking allegation from the film came from the singer’s assistant who claim the ‘I Will Always Love You’ singer confided in her that she was molested as a child by her cousin, singer Dee Dee Warwick. The claim was substantiated by Houston’s brother, Gary, who claimed he too was a victim of Dee Dee’s advances.
Since those accusations came to light, Houston’s mother – Cissy – adamantly denied the claims in a lengthy statement (click here to read). Now, Dee Dee’s sister – the famed Dionne Warwick – has followed suit. In a recent sit down with Larry King, the ‘Walk on By’ hitmaker referred to the ‘evil’ allegations as ‘hogwash’ and ‘unforgivable.’
