Tamar's Single is No. 1


Tamar Braxton released her new single 'Love and War' yesterday and shot to no. 1 on the US and UK iTunes charts...

But wait. There's more. Not only is Tamar's single is no.1, it's no. 1 ahead of Rihanna, Alicia Keys, Bruno Mars and Taylor Swift.

Well done, Tamar. Well done.

Damn, I thought that was Toni at first glance. I like the song. Good job Tamar.com

The song is hot. I'm not a fan of her antics, but I'm glad she's doing well. I like it because it's a "grown" song, not that "pop that pop that" type singing some do...

What I don't like is that it sounds like Keyshia Cole's "Trust & Believe". Same producer.

Good for her. Hopefully she can get the career she wants and be happy she isn't do wop pop popping anymore.

A simple R&B song with good lyrics and powerful vocals. No dance beats. No corny ass rapper featured. No hoodrat lyrics about how some no good negro did her wrong(I see you Keyshia). And she kept her clothes on. Can't hate on it at all.

-2 Chainz became the hottest rapper out at age 36
-Charlie Wilson damn near 80 years old putting out hits still
-Susan Boyle came out the projects of England looking like Mrs. Doubtfire and snatched everybody's wig on the Billboard 200
-NeNe went from stripper to reality "housewife" to sitcom star

If all of them can do it, then there's room for Tamar as well.

Tamar might looks like muppets on treasure island and have an alopecia hair line, but Atleast she can sing ! She don't got to be naked like beyliar and riwhora. I think her music will be a breath of fresh air

This should not be a shock to anyone that has watched her show or BFV and heard her SING!!! She can blow. Truth be told she can sing better than Toni because her range is off the chart. Love the song and despite her over the top attitude, I have to give credit to her and Vince (for making her wait). They killed it!!!

Good she deserves it :)

I bought the song twice, once on my hubbys itunes and once for mine. i wish we could combine our itunes so i dont have to always buy 2 damn songs

Well, the song isn't bad. And she did good on her performance last night.

OFF-TOPIC: But considering her husband being fat, why are so many Black men in the music industry that are managers and producers are FAT? I dunno, but I just notice that. They are fat and round.

NENE was a stripper? Who the hell paid to see that woman naked? WHO? WTF was she, a food stamp stripper? You slide an EBT card down her ass crack?

I swear Nene is beyond ratchet and a Black female stereotype to the 10th power! I can't stand her. I wish she would go away.

WOW! With no radio airplay? But i do have to say, when i heard her sing on the show yesterday, i was blown away! the song is relatable, and she can BLOW! she really surprised everyone (even though i do think vince bought a few thousand copies...lol!). But this, Adele and Brandy's song goes to show that real R&B is slowly creeping back to popularity. I have to give credit where it's due. CONGRATS TAMAR!!!

I haven't purchased music in YEARS, but you got my $ Tamar. I stopped that song after 1.5 minutes because I was amazed. This lady can BLOW!!! Her attitude is still a mess, but I'm sure it can be frustrating watching people with little to no talent get deals while she's bursting to showcase her gift.

I will be purchasing her album!

Yay for real talent!

Toni had her day in the sun and we'll never forget. But now it's Tamar's turn...she's been waiting a long time! Go 'head Tay Tay, bring us that old R&B back!

Tamar's album will probably be the FIRST album I WILL ever purchase in LIFE

Wow WelL done indeed!! Her perseverance really payed off, unless Vince payed for it to be there. She looks just like Toni in that pic. Toni once said Tamar is a better singer than her.

THE SONG IS GOOD AND TAMAR DID WELL SHE JUST JUST NEEDS TO CHANGE HER ATTITUDE BECAUSE KNOW ONE IS GOING TO KEEP DEALING WITH IT.

Brava Tamar! This song is HAWT!

Hopefully it can top the Billboard 100 singles chart. Hopefully.

Yes, Tamar can SING. However, real music enthusiasts have known this YEARS ago when Tamar showcased her vocal talent in the Braxtons group and on her own with her previous albums. You people in here are late and basic. Tamar is THE singer of that family. #Lames

This is what happens when you hold on to your dream and don't give up no matter what comes your way. I'm happy for her. I like how she's not dressed all skanky on the cover. I know that was Vince's idea. Glad she listened. From my view it looks like only one of her fingernails has red polish. If that's the case that is a nice touch.

Wow, thought it was Toni for a hot second, congrat TAMAR!

Now I do believe Kangay, Beyaki and Camel too oaths but Tamar, nah. Her whole family is super talented and, uh, who was her sister? A major superstar once upon a time. This is actually a good song.

She sang that shit live at her release party and nailed it. She has a great voice, not just a studio singer and she has a smart management team with money behind them. win win!

Anonymous said...

She got benefits of the oath by proxy (her husband). That is not to say that she is not talented though! Her talent plus the promotion of her album on the reality show paid off! Yes, we are just recognizing her talent because she was not heavily promoted before, and on the Soul Train Awards, her singing was bonk! But she progressed and the timing is right. Kudos to her!!

I must be sick or deaf. This song is just OKAY.

The melody is nice but I'm not really hearing the lyrics for all the background vocals. Not sure if I'm actually understanding what she's saying at the beginning. Love Tamar.

I"M NOT FEELING THIS.

Who in the hell cares! Let me break it down for you. Toni Braxton is like Janet Jackson of the family. The rest of them dusty braxton sisters are tito Jermaine and Latoya. Oh my God she hideous and she look like a clown! When I first saw her man I thought he was her retarded son. Then I just he was a special olympics kid that was posing with her crusty ass. Now that's her damn husband. EW?! Tamar is Latoya Jackson of the family. The only reason why all of the braxton sisters didn't get picked for anything in life is because they so hideous! they some ugly man looking bitches! The reason why toni braxton broke is because she spent all her money on cosmetic surgery trying to fix tamar and her ugly sisters face and it still didn't work. Go somewhere and hide ho.

Not a fan, but I sure can appreciate this "Grown Woman" type of song. I was tired of listening to lolly pop, bubble gum, nursery rhyme lyrics with Artist never showing any growth throughout their careers. Thanks Tamar! I can get my "Grown and Sexy" back on. Lol!!!

This song was cool. I gotta admit I SOOOOOO wanted her to sound like shit just cuz 1)the fact that we been waitin so long to hear her ass and 2) I wanted the WORLD to clown her ass!!!! But I must give credit where credit is due. She can sing. And she a 1000 times better than Toni's ol' I-can-only-sing-in-one-key ass.

BUT for the fact (in my Judge Judy voice) that Tamar has got such a stank ass attitude, I would've probably bought her CD, BUT IM NOT! Tamar is a spoiled, self-centered, annoying ass lil stuck-up bitch and I dont support hoes like that!

....but good luck Tamar!

Do I think that Tamar can be extra? Sure. Do I think she can sing better than Rihanna,Rita Ora, hell Toni Braxton, Sure do..Congratulations is in order...

I don't know this chick, but what is clear is that the RNB community is THIRTY for different music!!! And there is large population of X-generationers who will buy albums, downloads etc... But you have to give them something worth buying, clown stunts like fake pregnancies and contractual marriages will get you but so far, people have to either love you or hate you being annoying doesn't sell.

Hope more music along these lines gains momentum on the airwaves/internet waves yada yada yada

BITCH!! My family has been in the industry since I was BORN! They worked hard, they had their big break, and they still TOUR TO THIS DAY!!! Your mama probably fucked to one of their songs to conceive of your ass, so how the FUCK are you gonna tell me??? I'm so sick of you motherfuckers watching some youtube video and suddenly thinking you know all about an industry you have NO IDEA ABOUT!! SICK OF YALL!!! GET A LIFE!!!

Beautiful voice Tamar!Your voice is up there with the greats.....

Oath This! said...

People, please stop it with that oath shit. If it's not some oath shit it's some Illuminati shit. Somebody is always bringing it up and nobody ever provides any specific, concrete details. Why? Because they have none...on here just typing for the sake of thinking they have something to type. Take your dirty, funky, greasy keyboard and go home with that bullshit.

Tamar sounds OK, but she should have put something like this out a long time ago. She really made her mark in the "celebrity world" as a stuck up coon married to some unattractive, morbidly obese dude with lots of money and industry connections, not just one of Toni's sister backup singers. Now that she has developed into a distinct public personality of her own she wants to be taken serious as an artist? Whatever. How much did it cost her rich husband to propel her into the number one spot?

Tamar nailed that

It's a great song. I have to say I am pleasantly surprised. She has a terrific voice. Just need to tone down her attitude. That's what screwed her up in the beginning. If she becomes more positive, puts out more product like this she can make it. Plus, R&B is making a comeback for 2013 and people are ready for new female/male artists right now.

Tamar killed it. Congrats to her. Just bought Keysha cole's new cd and I was pleasantly suprised. R&B is back ya'll!

Why do people keep repeating "she's a better singer than Toni" as if that's some sort of revelation or necessary declaration? Because she seems like she's getting her "rightful" shine after supposedly being in Toni's shadow? She gets a no. 1 on iTunes and now people have to overreact? As well as down her legit, respected (in the industry) sister? A sister who's openly acknowledged Tamar's above average vocal ability on more than one occasion, mind you.

Who's "better" is subjective. Toni's no fluke or slouch. For basically 20 years the world has been quite aware of Toni Braxton's competency as a singer and performer. There are reasons why Tamar didn't break big in the 90s and early 2000s. She didn't have it or she didn't really want it. Hell, she may not have it now. She can sing (no disputing that), but it took a mogul-manager-husband and unceasing shrill and over-the-top antics on TWO reality shows on a niche cable network to get her a single no. 1 on iTunes. A no. 1 some are crediting to the tweet-promo of that fugly stunt queen Lady Gaga (no need to make the point that people in the music industry-know always knew Tamar was a great singer - Gaga's tweets appear to be instrumental in the instant success of this song).

As technically skilled as she may be in delivering vocals, Tamar has not developed an identity of her own (sings like Mariah/Toni/Beybot, mimics Beycreep onstage and in wigdom) and has always had a penchant for ratchet shit with a dash of "I'm a diva" (after Beyzombie became known for the image she'd cultivated as a blonde, booty-popping "diva"). Hell - the cover art for this song takes from Michael's Off The Wall album cover. Speaking of Michael: she and her husband have begun to claim she suffers from the skin disorder he was PROVEN to have endured as of his autopsy - vitiligo. Why claim this now, of all times? Because people are questioning why she looks so increasingly light the more she's on TV and why her makeup has her looking crazy. She also denies she's had cosmetic procedures on her face. Maybe she does have vitiligo and didn't want to go public before. Maybe she has lupus like Toni (and Michael, and supposedly Gaga) and didn't want to go public with that either - but the reference to things that the public scorned MJ over seems... Calculated and potential mendacious.

I'm no Toni Braxton stan, Tamar's song is really well done and I don't want Tamar to fail. I just want people to keep shit in perspective. Toni didn't hold Tamar back and Toni's accomplishments and legacy are not to be dismissed because Tamar puts out an unexpected (and slightly suspicious) iTune hit. There's room for both women to be celebrated - if shine and glory is what the music consuming public is concerned with, here.

And stop acting like one song/one artist is "reviving" R&B. People always want someone to come and save R&B from the supposed downward spiral of current mainstream music. There's plenty of adult/contemporary R&B to acquire and appreciate, from artists old and new.
