Tamar is the Braxton everybody is buzzing about. This week she is celebrating the release of her sophomore album, she along with John Legend and Jaheim are competing for megabytes on smartphones.
Tamar Braxton – Love & War (Buy)
Tamar Braxton has taken full advantage at the opportunity to reach her aspirations as a solo artist. Since becoming a fan favorite on the Braxton Family Values reality television show with infamous lines like "Tamar Dot Com," she quickly turned TV fans into music consumers with "Love & War." The fourteen track album denotes the obvious happy and sad icons caused when love strikes.
John Legend – Love in the Future (Buy)
John Legend continues to collaborate with G.O.O.D Music leader Kanye West, who co-produced the majority of the album. "I worked with Kanye more on this album than I had before…to work together kind of added a little bit of extra time to the process. But I think it was worth it," Legend told XXL.
Outside of Mr. West, Legend limits the album guest to frequent collaborator Rick Ross and Homeschool artist Stacy Barthe.
Jaheim – Appreciation Day (Buy)
It has only been three since Jaheim released his last album Another Round, but in that time, he has been out of sight. With a rejuvenated connection to fans, 'Appreciation Day' is a project he crafted directly to fulfill his supporters. "It's been so long since I’ve had a chance to create music from my heart for the fans that have loved and supported me from the start. I decided to call the project ‘Appreciation Day’ because that’s exactly what this album is," he states.
Raheem Devaughn – A Place Called Loveland (Buy)
From the title, the expectations on how to best intake 'A Place Called' is obvious. "This album will be a relationship thinktank…I just wanna take people on an eclectic ride, eargasmic-wise and let them enjoy it," Raheem told Singersroom. Do not be alarmed if this album leads to baby.
