To be honest, there are times we don’t wanna hear “all that singing” from an artist. What we mean is, “Yeah, we know you can “holla”, but do you always have. to. holler?” Such isn’t the case with us and Tamar Braxton. We like when she gives us a ballad because that means she’s gonna give us the vocals. First, there was “My Man” and now “Blind”, and of course we noticed the homage to the incomparable Ms. Etta James. Both songs are from Tamar Braxton’s new album Bluebird Of Happiness— out TODAY.
