Love and War
No one puts baby Braxton in a corner.
Tamar Braxton may be the youngest of five sisters, but she’s successfully managed to emerge from Toni Braxton’s shadow.
Sharing DNA with the Unbreak My Heart singer means Tamar can hit those low notes almost as flawlessly as Toni does. She clearly exhibits that on her second album, Love and War.
Tamar has said she considers this to be her real debut as the self-titled album she released in 2000 was not her vision realised.
This time around, there is a mix of cheeky nu-age r&b (One On One Fun, Hot Sugar), ballads (Love and War, Pieces) that allow Tamar’s voice to soar while channelling her idol, Mariah Carey (Pieces) and even adding a gospel track (Thank You Lord) to close the album. Like old-school R&B singers used to do.
In addition to penning some songs, Tamar enlisted the likes of Sevyn Streeter, Lashawn Daniels and Brian-Michael Cox as song- writers and Da Internz and even Diplo on the beats.
Love and War is a solid pseudo-debut. – Helen Herimbi
