Tamar Braxton Sets Billboard Record / Talks New Single, John Legend, & More

Published: Thursday 12th Sep 2013 by Rashad

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:

Via Billboard:

“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!

    Who is this?

    • EnRanc September 12, 2013

      Someone who’s outselling Ciara. Ooops. Everyone is. I should be more specific. Someone who is outselling Ciara, didn’t put out 10 “buzz singles” ahead of the album release, and doesn’t have a prostate.

    Longest time between 1st and 2nd chart entries ….. Am I missing something?

    Is that the record?

    • Beyhive September 12, 2013

      You are so fake.

      • cici slaaaaays September 12, 2013

    FLOP FLOP FLOP, and it’ll get worse after tonight. FOX will most definitely cancel FLOP Factor, and this is after Kelly NowhereLand twerks for Simon to keep a job that is no longer guaranteed.

    I guess she should have remembered she has an album out.

    • . : : h 2 o : : . September 12, 2013

      Kii

    • dustin September 13, 2013

      how is this relevant to the conversation?

      oh a katy stan. its hilarious even typing that. let me hit up my homegirl bonnie who writes the hits for katy to discuss her next single.

      back to the tamar braxton sales. we KNOW this was doctored a little. i’ve heard the album. its paint by numbers r&b thats been done before and done better by someone that shares some chromosomes with this chick.

      on a more important note whats goin on with mr. legend? he may need a hiatus to rediscover his mojo. i haven’t been crazy impressed with his s*** since the save room era.

      • Keri Krew Kween September 13, 2013

        Katy co-writes all of her songs you flop. She even wrote Thinking of You, her best song by herself. Not many pop stars do that

    • shisha September 14, 2013

      Please that show isn’t going anywhere and neither is Kelly Rowland! 6.8 million isn’t all that bad and its second in its timeslot! Its not Kellys show! People will get use to the new format and drama free judges!

    • shisha September 14, 2013

  17. TAMAR IS GAY September 13, 2013

    TAMAR BRAXTON IS A LESBIAN

    her husband is gay, her sister is broke, what’s new?

    old ass lesbian

    • Maka September 13, 2013

      What about ur mom????

  18. Keri Krew Kween September 13, 2013

    I don’t see how this is a record to be proud if but congrats I guess.

  19. Joan September 13, 2013

    Good Morning;
    If you don’t like someone why even get on here. especially to be the first or the second person to say something. go and get on something that you like. can any of you actually sing yourself. and why haven’t we not heard of you.

  20. Joan September 13, 2013

    Why can’t you just leave people along. Tamar can sing and Kelly can sing too.

  21. kING KIM (ROSIE IS A WOMAN) September 13, 2013

    WHERE’S ROSIE?

  22. LOL September 13, 2013

    All i’ll say is that if her husband was gonna buy her albums for her, I would think he would buy more than 117K copies LOL

  23. MuppetSayWHa September 13, 2013

    no one is checkin for you, go away Tamar. send back Toni; she’s the better sibling.

  24. Benny Porncraft September 13, 2013

    She hit a record for waiting too long to put out music? Wow

  25. The Truth September 13, 2013

    Why is she lying. Tamar didn’t write love and war she didn’t even like the song at first.

  26. Braveheart 2014 September 13, 2013

    I want to like her, but something ain’t right…and not to mention she put down several vet rnb stars when she made her comment about selling 100k+ first week. she out sold a lot of other artist than just K michelle, so she shouldn’t have said that…

    that’s cocky, and she will b humbled.

    • New Life September 13, 2013

      Braveheart, as in Ashanti? girl here –>> _/
