From The Vault: The Braxtons – ‘Slow Flow’

On their hit reality show ‘Braxton Family Values’, Toni’s sisters Trina, Towanda and Tamar are depicted as the Party Girl, the Responsible One and the Diva respectively. Well, this week’s From The Vault will showcases the trio as members of underrated R&B group, The Braxtons. Lifted from their 1997 second album, ‘So Many Ways’, ‘Slow Flow’ is yet another example of the talent with which has blessed the Braxton family.

The laid-back groove is evocative of the R&B scene during the mid-nineties: New-Jack beat: check, DJ-scratches: check, melancholic synth-line: check, great vocals: check.

Moreover, each member is apportioned ample light to flaunt what they’re working with. From Trina’s deep, mature vocal, to Towanda’s soulful tone (one we must add lends itself well to Gospel music), and of course Tamar  – whose voice proves just as big her personality. Indeed, any such doubt of her ability is dispelled when she takes charge and treats us to a melisma-heavy final chorus.

Hopefully at some point, the show, without losing its comical and inspirational appeal, will provide more music-related storylines for the ladies. As, like this song and numerous others attest, they are worth so much more than the ‘roles’ they’ve been assigned. Of course, seeing Tamar act like Tamar is great – however, it’d be hot.com if we’d see more of such antics in a recording studio.

Bring On that reunion album!

Hot Shot: Alexandra Burke Arrives In LA

Pop starlet Alexandra Burke was spotted strolling through the Los Angeles‘ LAX Airport earlier this week.

The X Factor winner has taken up temporary residence in the US, as she completes work on her hotly anticipated sophomore set. Producers Burke has worked with on the project include Rico Love (‘Motivation’), Andre Merrit (‘Disturbia’), Wayne Wilkins (‘Fight For This Love’), RedOne (‘On The Floor’), and  Swizz Beats (‘Get Me Bodied’). {Pic Source}

Randomness: With X Factor USA set to launch in September, I sure hope plans are being put in place to use it as a launchpad for Alex Stateside. Besides the $5 million deal signed with Epic Records US two years ago, it’s common knowledge that Alex is one of the very best things to come from te X Factor franchise; it’s high time she was showcased as such. For, in every sense of the word, she is world class.
