Tamar Braxton has been relatively quiet on the music front in recent years. However, she’s set to turn the volume all the way up tomorrow with the release of new song ‘Crazy Kind Of Love.’
The soulful track is lifted from the soundtrack for movie ‘True To The Game 2,’ which the singer makes a cameo in alongside Rotimi and Vivica A. Fox.
Prior to its premiere, a snippet has surfaced. Check it out below, where word from Braxton about her revived passion for music also awaits…
Speaking to Billboard about her involvement with the film and its music, she said:
“I’m just really excited about this project. This song and this whole project really got me into recording again and wanting to be an artist. And I never thought that I wanted to have a record or to even have that kind of passion, and because of this film and because of this particular record has made me fall in love with music again.”
When asked squarely about whether this spells a broader return with new music, she was more coy. She replied:
“Well, I don’t want to say yes or no. [Laughs] But the interest is definitely there. The spark has definitely been fired up. So we’ll see.”
Comments like this make it unfortunate that Tamar hasn’t got a TV show on-air at present to fully provide context about what looks to be disillusionment with music and the industry at large.
She hasn’t dropped an album since 2017’s ‘Bluebird of Happiness’ and, truth be told, hasn’t released a well-executed campaign since the ‘Love & War’ LP way back in 2013.
In the time since, it’s been one mishap or the other. A lot of which seemed to be attributed to dramas in her personal life that flowed into the professional.
With much of that in rearview, it’d be great to see her get her musical train back on the track.
Time will tell if ‘Crazy Kind Of Love’ kickstarts that process.
