Let me tell you something, I don’t care what you say about Tamar Braxton, she is alright with me. Y’all know that in the past Tamar has not been one of my favorite people, but this right here has COMPLETELY changed how I feel about her. Reality TV does not do every artist justice. I definitely think in the court of public opinion, much of Tamar’s over the top ways on television may have left a lot of people looking at her sideways. Whatever you may feel about Tamar’s personality, good, bad, or indifferent you can’t deny her talent. I always felt that Tamar needed just SHUT UP and SANG. Well, that is exactly what she did. Bae-Bae, Tamar made her to the Wendy Williams show to perform her single Love and War and she TURNT IT!
Mic stand in hand, hair teased teased to the GAWDS, and a form fitting dress that was serving 1990’s Anita Baker realness, Tamar showed up and showed out. This performance was epic. It was so reminiscent of how things use to be. No lights, no dancers, no props, just a Bish that can sing and a mic stand. Yes Gawd Hunty!
True R&B still lives and is about to make a resurgence. I’m glad to see that Tamar has positioned her self to be one of the leaders of the pack. It is time to see some game changers. I think people are over the bubble gum. The trendy clothing, clown makeup, colorful weaves, computerized beats, Young Money on the remix, all that sh*t has got to go!
Whitney Houston left a spot open in music that so many younger girls have failed to fill. The seat is just sitting there for the taking. By no means am I comparing Whitney’s voice to Tamar’s. However, this performances definitely gave me classic Whitney Houston T’s. The lyrics, the power, the emotion, all things Tamar was effectively able to convey to the audience. That is the mark of a true singer. Tamar Go In and Let have. I hope you stay on this path. Please do not be a Kelly Rowland, give us one hot single then the rest of the CD is sub par. You have a supporter in The Doll…
An example of what I mean by a bish that can sang and a mic stand. Anita Baker’s classic Red Dress performance of Body & Soul at the Soul Train Awards
