Watch: Tamar Braxton Debuts New Song ‘King’ On ‘The Real’ [Performance]

Published: Monday 14th Sep 2015 by Sam

Tamar Braxton may not be pleased with the delay of her new album, but she’s more than happy to share material from the set.

During the season 2 premiere of her talkshow ‘The Real’ today, the 37-year-old seized the moment to perform new cut ‘King.’

The track sits alongside single ‘If I Don’t Have You’ on ”Lovers’ which struts into stores on October 2nd via Epic/Streamline.

Will the ballad help build heightened hype? Watch below and let us know…

Commendable vocals, which were great in places.

It’s not a ‘Love & War,’ that much is a given. But we’ll wait on the studio version to decipher whether it really resonates with us or not. In the meanwhile…

    Slay, can’t wait for the album. Love & War was a great song/album, and I feel she deserved to win at least one grammy.

    • Queen Molly September 14, 2015

      Hey boo you ready for new Adele music? I hope it slays

      • Skyfall September 14, 2015

        Yasss, she’s playing games but I’m ready to be slayed

    • toohotfortv September 14, 2015

      Yeah, I’ll give her at least one grammy… I wouldn’t be mad at that at all. That little lip quivering at the end of this performance deserves an oscar too… Tuh!

      • Skyfall September 14, 2015

        Screamms!! I love Tamar but I was like wtf wrong with her lips

    • mr.m September 14, 2015

      Toni is incomparable!
      Well, both Toni and Tamar slay your fav vocally.

      • Queen Molly September 14, 2015

        Beyonce ,Toni ,and Tamar all slay Shittina Faguilera vocally kiiiii….. Xtina is the most tragic vocalists on earth Bye f*******.

      • mr.m September 14, 2015

    • Chile, leave my weave at the door and don’t steal it like those broke ass barb stans September 14, 2015

      She’s the best looking Braxton too. No shade, no boiling hot tea, but the other four CANNOT even come near her level of aesthetics and NATURAL beauty, especially Tracy the troll. My brother likes Towards and he saw her in person, so I’ll cut her some much needed slack.

      • cassandra chen September 14, 2015

        So delusional….

      • Carlitos September 15, 2015

        WTF? Are you Helen Keller? Toni is the most talented vocally and the most attractive.

  3. mr.m September 14, 2015

    SLAY TAY!!

    • Chile, leave my weave at the door and don’t steal it like those broke ass barb stans September 14, 2015

      Ooh, I like that! Slay a bit unapologetically please!

  4. Riley September 14, 2015


  5. What now September 14, 2015

    I gotta give the gurl ha credit, she sounded gud. The song iz cute 2. Who ever told ha 2 go w/ dark hair and the new makeup beat deserves that Grammy that she waz salty that Rihanna won over her album. KIII. Still, cute performance.

    • Chile, leave my weave at the door and don’t steal it like those broke ass barb stans September 15, 2015

      It was probably Kim jumble. She was a celebrity client on one of the episodes from L.A. Hair this season.

  9. Queen Molly September 14, 2015

    This floptina stan is so pressed kiiii madT cause Beyonce has been slaying Christina her whole career?

    • Christina Aguilera September 15, 2015

      Beyoncé has never slayed any Xtina besides xtina has more album sales than her

      • isi September 15, 2015

        You don’t believe that do you? Beyonce>Christina in sells and impact. Dont do it, Xtina is my girl but come on! This is universal knowledge!

  10. Queen Molly September 14, 2015

    @Beyrihliyah do you see this racist xtina fan calling me a negro? Lmao like bitchhhh im mixed sit down.

    • BeyRihLiyah September 14, 2015

      Lmaooo your still half negro and yall both are going for blood

      • toohotfortv September 14, 2015

        I’m wondering what is wrong with being called a negro? Umm… bask in the privilege, sweetheart 😉

    • jdek September 14, 2015

      you know you aint mixed with s*** your a dark skin 100 percent NEGRO b****. So sad

  11. WRTW? September 14, 2015

    The anointing in her voice! SlayMar!

  12. Lady1 September 14, 2015

    She’s no Toni Braxton, and that’s nothing but the truth. Toni is beautiful, classy and has the best voice

  13. RoyalBey September 14, 2015

    Standing Ovation!

  14. Monica Stan September 14, 2015

    I couldn’t even understand what she was saying half the time #Overrated

    • toohotfortv September 14, 2015

      That’s that signature Braxton mumble lol

  15. Royalkev September 14, 2015

    I have to say, this performance is probably her best. I’m impressed and I haven’t been before when she’s on stage singing live. She did an excellent job!

  16. Gee September 14, 2015

    Tamar seems to be more comfortable and confident on stage and this performance displayed that. Her vocals were on point as well. Overall a great job Tamar.

  17. Credits September 14, 2015

    This is a Toni Braxton ballad. I mean Tamar does sound great but imagine if that was Toni in her lower register during the verses…

    • Cough Cough September 14, 2015

      Toni in 1995 would slay it, Toni in 2015 would sound good but it wouldn’t have much of a climax

  18. jdek September 14, 2015

    Love this woman on stage!

  19. @JanetCIARA_ September 14, 2015

    She is releasing the same day as JANET “Unbreakable…..
    Hmmmm we shall see how this goes

    • Cough Cough September 14, 2015

      Janet will probably sell more because of her hype but Tamar’s album will be better in every angle.

      • Queen Molly September 14, 2015

        Janet is all hype…..

      • toohotfortv September 15, 2015

        That’s just an ignorant statement all around. The sheer experience and technicality of a janet/jimmy jam and terry lewis album can not really be matched by any pop artist (let alone an “urban” artist). Do you know these people’s pedigree? Do you understand their track record together? Hype? Chile cheese and bologna… gtfoh with that!

      • Cough Cough September 15, 2015

        Janet’s last 3 albums were super forgettable… Stop being delusional and acting like she’s been making great music, recently…. She has not. Which is why her two singles are weak

  20. #JACKIE September 14, 2015

    Is she singing in French or something? B**** enunciate

    • jdek September 14, 2015

      At least she can sing unlike your fave

      • #JACKIE September 14, 2015

        She will forever be Toni’s lessor.

      • jdek September 14, 2015

        And your fave is literally EVERYONES lessor……25k…..

  21. Centurion September 14, 2015

    @rihanna #THECREEPER SOLD OUT in 3 Hours!!! Thank you guys! And if you missed it, #THECREEPER launches Globally on the 25th!!! @PUMA

    • jdek September 14, 2015


  22. Chile, leave my weave at the door and don’t steal it like those broke ass barb stans September 14, 2015

    Yes! Come on and DELIVER, Me. Tamar! I love it! Her “Rated R” era is among us and her “Homogenize” era is yet to follow. I’m so impressed with the locality in this song! Please, Tamar! Get us life and promote the HELL out of this album. It’s had so many setbacks already, but that doesn’t mean it won’t scan platinum. Hell, K. Michelle wishes she could deliver this type of depth and vulnerability. She trying to kill me with all this slayage. First, the s*** smart mouth bop “Catfish” and now this? Look, just expect a universally acclaimed album. Sorry haters, but she did that! Yep! She with a capital S!

  23. RIHANNA>beyonce September 14, 2015


    • Tyler Makiavelli September 14, 2015

      River Island sold out? B**** when???

      • RIHANNA>beyonce September 14, 2015

        B**** when it came out and was biggest seller in RIVER ISLAND chain in the uk and opening ceremony in usa! Numbers don’t lie but fagssssss like u lie

  24. pat September 14, 2015

    Couldn’t even understand first half but she slayed later

  25. StrawberryMuffin24 September 14, 2015

    Rihanna putting out everything but that srapped album poor dat!

    Beyawance has not been slaying Xtina there whole career the only thing Beyawnce has been doing her whole career is lip-synching to pre-recorded tracks and stealing other artists!

    Tamar Slayed this performance vocals on fleek!

  26. Theman September 14, 2015

    Janet’s album will be classic. TF are y’all talking about? It’s the hype, artistry etc..

    • Queen Molly September 14, 2015

      A classic? pls the album will be forgettable it won’t outsell Beyonce or Rihannas last albums

    • IcyOne September 14, 2015

      Janet’s album won’t even be remembered the second week, and that’s assuming anyone even bothers to remember it during the first. There is no hype or artistry. Just an aging pop star trying to squeeze out one final stale nugget despite her current dust bin status.

  27. blinged September 14, 2015

    Tamar killed that, im definitely getting the new album ????

  28. Mo September 14, 2015

    Tamar’s voice, talent and appeal is just all around basic and mediocre.

  29. Slay_Hive September 14, 2015

    Kanye’s $200 sneakers sold out in twelve mins and they looked a whole lot better than those ugly cheap looking creeper puma’s lmaooo. Now thats impressive. Rihanna’s star power is small compared to the heavyweights she’s influenced by.????????????. Where is that album at tho?
    BTW Tamar’s performance was cute

    • RIHANNA>beyonce September 14, 2015

      But yet Rihanna they still SOLD OUT!! Beytranny and the house of tackiness couldn’t get anyone to purchase those dreadful creation

      • Slay_Hive September 14, 2015

        Biitch bye. House of Dereon was her mother’s creation and it was started from the ground up. It wasn’t attached to river island or puma. Beyonce also has the best selling celebrity fragrance of all time and any simple thing she wears sells out without even having to endorse it. You’re a fool if you don’t think Bey’s name holds power! She slays effortlessly boo!

  30. Credits September 14, 2015

    Her upper chest slays but I feel like her head notes get too airy and are usually hit and miss…is it just me?

  31. StrawberryMuffin24 September 14, 2015

    Tamar Slayed this performance especially the ending notes and runs her range is good too anyone who says other wise are just straight up hating!

  32. Junior in Jamaica September 14, 2015

    Not feeling her.

  33. cocobutta September 15, 2015

    Beautiful song. Other than the start thats one of her best vocals live on telly. Think her BET celebration of Gospel vocal been the best “Be Grateful”!

    Ready for the album

    (sidebar: #coderedcomingsoon)

  34. isi September 15, 2015

    Not feeling Tamar never have never will and that’s my personal opinion! Where did all these fans come from all of a sudden? They certainly didn’t buy the first three projects or singles. Such a mystery! Nowhere to be found album and single day.

  35. StrawberryMuffin24 September 15, 2015

    I have always been A Tamar fan bitter bish the woman can sang period! And I bought her last album and i’m gonna buy the new album so have several seats!

  36. Keith September 15, 2015

    LOL at “where did all these Tamar fans come from?” I was wondering the same thing and I actually HAVE been a fan since her first album at 19….

  37. Julie January 21, 2016

    Tamars voice gives me goosebemps. I love her, its about time she shines.I pray shes feeling n doing better and realizes she needs to take care of herself better for her Kings. The fans come last.
    Love You Woman
