Editor Pick: Tamar Braxton “Money Can’t Buy You Love”

[audio:http://www.ykigs.com/1358.mp3]

When artists are a part of a family of talent, they always have issues finding their own niche amongst their siblings and then amongst their music industry peers. Tamar pronounced (Tay-Mahr) now ever popular because of her straightforward attitude and her “dot com”, “dot org” and “dot net” slang and vocabulary featured on WEtv’s hit show “Braxton Family Values”, we have come to know Toni Braxton’s youngest sister Tamar aside from her 90’s, 00’s presence. Tamar fronting The 1996 Braxton’s trio release “So Many Ways” which featured remakes of Kylmaxx’s “I’d Still Say Yes” and Diana Ross’ “The Boss” still spawned minor single hits “Only Love” and “Slow Flow” and a sleeper album tack “L.A.D.I.”. In the midst of all of that, Tamar saw her solo debut 1999/2000 with Jermaine Dupri produced lead single featuring Amil “Get None” did get some notoriety based on her talents alone but many avid supporters of her sister’s career were interested in her sound and artistry. An album with star producers Jermaine Dupri, Missy Elliott, Christopher “Tricky” Stewart and Tim & Bob helmed enough classic items and single radio ready tunes you would expect Tamar’s music career to be stronger than what she wants it to be. You can expect the album to be everything and more with smooth loving R&B tracks “Words” “The Way It Should Be” and “Can’t Nobody” and loving tunes of yesteryear “You Don’t Know”, “Miss Your Kiss”, and “Tonight”. This album is for someone who loves R&B and can remember “If You Don’t Wanna Love Me” which was released as the second single. If you would love to hear a different tone of a Braxton’s voice and happen to enjoy Tamar’s background vocals on Toni’s albums “The Heat” and “Libra” and love to hear an artist vocally exceed beyond a normal range and singing material that resonates to her experiences, check out “Money Can’t Buy You Love”.

  1. I really don’t care for her attitude. She makes herself look insecure. And, after listening to this track, I’m not impressed. The way she comes at Toni — her own blood — she makes me want better from her as an artist. No, money can’t buy love … and neither can envy.

    • Well I’ve never seen the show, and honestly I don’t let how a person acts in real life influence how I take their music. Good music is good music to me. This album is from back in 2000, I liked it, definitely slept on.

  2. I don’t care how Tamar acts on that show because I’m sure alot of her TV persona is just for Hollywood. Tamar is not lying when she says that she is one of the dopest singers. I loved her way back in 2000 when her debut CD came out and had not played that CD in years. But recently, I pulled it out and the songs still sound great and fresh. Tamar’s voice is definitely slept on. Tamar’s voice is like a Toni/Beyonce mixture which is just a beautiful voice.

  3. I really like the old song money cant buy u love. But in her case i think it did threw vince. I dont think se would be happy without his money, sometimes money can buy u love. She shoukd redo that song because that song to me is better then her new song. I love that song i want that old cd just because of that song
