A frail Braxton had to sit down after her dramatic performance to The Beatles Love alongside performers from Cirque de Soleil.

Tamar Braxton Vs. Toni Braxton

R&B Divas Go Head To Head: Tamar Braxton Vs. Toni Braxton
38-year old Tamar Braxton-Herbert, best known as Tamar Braxton recently dropped her new studio album Calling All Angels. While the rollout for Calling All Angels hasn’t been the smoothest thanks to a delayed release, the final product was nothing short of well-rounded, enjoyable R&B album. Arguably, Tamar’s third album trumps her Grammy-nominated sophomore effort Love and War. Love and War was more high profile particularly given its phenomenal title track, but Calling All Angels shows tremendous artistic growth for Tamar.

What’s most impressive about Calling All Angels is Tamar’s voic...

Rap Newcomer Fetty Wap Takes Top Honors

Fetty Wap Takes Top Honors On The Billboard 200
It’s a good week to be a “Trap Queen” – or something like that! Rap newcomer Fetty Wap sees his self-titled debut album take top honors on the Billboard 200. That’s right, Fetty Wap debuted at #1 on the big chart, to the tune of 129,000 units – not too shabby. Wait at minute – how much did Fetty Wap actually sell? 75,000 copies – 54,000 copies less than it impacted when streams and tracks are considered. But first place is first place, right?

Fetty Wap wasn’t the only story of the Billboard 200 this week. Don Henley lands in third place with Cass County, selling more copies than Fetty...

25 Best R&B Albums Of 2013

12/27/2013 6:30pm EST
It truly saddens me to see R&B, a personal favorite style of music, in a state of uncertainty.  2013 found the numbers of R&B down considerably, a trend that is consistent year in and year out. Save for a select few commercial bright spots (led by an unexpected Beyoncé album), R&B only dented the charts. Even so, finding 25 albums with some significance wasn’t difficult to do.  Sure, some of the lowest ranked albums have their flaws, but each has some reason for being selected.  Enjoy!

12 Songs For Lovers – A Soundtrack That Will Boost Any Relationship

10/26/2013 4:00pm EDT
Janelle featuring Miguel primetime
Love songs can be so touching and certainly can propel any relationship (and in some cases hookups).  I have constructed a list of 12 ‘love’ songs that have the emotional and physical connection between lovers in mind… or something like that!  I attempted to make some narrative, but like most soundtracks, they’re all over the place anyways!

Track 1

Raheem DeVaughn, “Complicated”

(A Place Called Love Land)

As we know, no one relationship is ‘cut and dry’ by any means; all are their own diverse entity.  Among Raheem DeVaughn’s best tracks on his underrated indie-R&B album A Place Called L...

2013 Chart Trends: Top 5 Over & Underachievers

Tamar Braxton : Love & War
“You win some and you lose some.” At least, that’s what they say.  That’s the case with numerous albums in 2013.  I have chosen five albums that exceeded sales expectations and five albums that fell short of expectations.  Let’s see who made my list…

The Overachievers 

Honorable Mention(s): Justin Timberlake, The 20/20 Experience (no. 1 bow, 968,000 copies sold it’s first week);  Ariana Grande, Yours Truly (no. 1 debut with 138,000 copies sold)


Tamar Braxton, Love & War


Selling R&B is a test in itself.  If you’d told me Toni Braxton’s little sis would move six figu...

Will R&B Ever Recover From Sales Inconsistencies?

9/10/2013 7:30pm EDT
John Legend
On Tuesday, September 3, 2013, I felt reassured about the output of R&B music.  As perused the CD aisle at the local Best Buy, I felt excited to see the majority of new releases were R&B (Neko Case and Nine Inch Nails among exemptions).  That observation should be shocking in itself.  This included established artists like John Legend, Jaheim, and Raheem DeVaughn, as well as rising artists in Tamar Braxton (a ‘reintroduction’ you might say) and Ariana Grande (a pop/R&B blend).  From my perspective, being an R&B lover who’s at his best singing along with a slow jam, I was happy to see such a...

Review: Tamar Braxton, 'Love and War' - Braxton Impresses (Vocally) While Some Material Underwhelms

9/10/2013 9:56am EDT
Tamar Braxton 'Love and War'
Apparently there is room for more than one Braxton. Yep. Tamar Braxton, the younger sister of multiplatinum R&B singer Toni Braxton is living up her moment in the spotlight.  Tamar  previously released a solo album, Tamar, but that was way back in 2000.  Now 13 years later, Braxton returns with the biggest solo hit of her career (“Love and War”) and an album poised to make a much larger wave than Tamar ever could.  Love and War accomplishes what it is supposed to; it introduces (or reintroduces) Tamar Braxton as a worthwhile R&B artist in her own right. Is it impressive? I wouldn’t call it ...

Here we have Ke$ha, who has made a presence in the fail category of fashion for some time. The flowers here can't cover up everything, like the overly-bronze leggings. there's also the draped ropesall over the place and the too-small panties and corset.
