We now turn our attention to the catalog of the legendary Tamia for the next edition of our Artist Top 10 Best Songs List series. The singer is without a doubt one of the greatest stars to come out of the 90’s. As we revisit her discography it serves as a valuable reminder of just how much great music she’s given us.
From our introduction to Tamia in the the mid 90’s to the current day she’s been giving us timeless music. She’s also found ways to masterfully evolve her sound to keep it current while also tapping into her signature vibe.
You can see that we had a hard time settling on just 10 songs and our honorable mention section includes a bunch of more additions. Quite honestly, we could have even added more songs to this list with ease.
