This week saw ‘All The Way Home’ hitmaker Tamar Braxton watch her new album ‘Love & War’ take off all the way to the top of Billboard charts.
Skyrocketing to Billboard 200’s #2 (R&B: #1) spot(s), the songstress fended off competition from the likes of Robin Thicke, Jaheim, and John Legend (whom she is due to tour the States with in the coming weeks).
Seemingly winning on every front, as she is also in hot promotion of season 2 of hit WeTV series ‘Tamar & Vince’, today SHE was given a new notch to add to her winner’s streak after Billboard unveiled a chart record she set.
Find out what it was below and hear Tamar sound off on her new album, tour with John Legend, and so much more:
“The youngest sibling of R&B icon Toni Braxton first appeared on the list with “Tamar” (No. 42 debut and peak) on April 8, 2000. 13 years and five months later, Braxton sets the female record for longest time between an initial chart listing and a first No. 1 in this chart’s SoundScan era (December 1992 to present).
The record was previously held by Angie Stone, who waited eight years and two weeks (1999-2007).”
Tidbit: Elsewhere on the R&B charts this week, John Legend‘s newest project ‘Love In The Future’ sold 68,000 copies to land at #2 on R&B charts while Jaheim‘s ‘Appreciation Day’ clocked 58,000 to land at #3.
Congratulations are in order to all!
