New Music: Tamar Braxton – ‘The One’

The One

While she awaits the birth of her first child, Tamar Braxton delivers her second single “The One.” On the breezy follow-up to “Love and War,” the mom-to-be samples the Notorious B.I.G.’s classic “Juicy.”

“It has so much energy, it’s so fun, it’s a summertime anthem record,” the “Braxton Family Values” star told Rap-Up TV of the feel-good track, which was produced by Yung Berg and LaShawn Daniels.

She shot a video for the song last month on the beach in Santa Monica. “The concept of the video is just a summer throwback,” Tamar said of the Gil Green-directed clip. “It kinda gives you that feeling when you was in high school and you was with your boyfriend or your girlfriend and you go to the park and you hang out and you get all cutie, and it’s just funners.”

The 36-year-old singer recently inked a deal with L.A. Reid at Epic Records, where she will release her album Love and War later this year.

    OMG….for the record – Tamar is very light skinned. She tans on a regular basis to ‘darken’ her skin. If you watched BFV, you’d know that. Also, for folks who have nothing but negativity to give, why are you even reading the article or wasting your precious time putting in a comment. Go find something that will put a smile on your face and comment about that! Geez!

    This is such a chill song. Great use of the sample. She’s going in the right direction with the album. Love and War is already an instant classic.

    @MinajSlayedMetGala, you sound stupid. None of her music leaked. You might have heard versions she preformed from her showcase but you haven’t heard any studio recordings yet.

    I’m all over this song.. is perfect for summer and I’m so in love with it. It’s been on repeat for about 2 weeks no, the unedited version. Now I can buy the radio ready edit. If you don’t already have love, you’ll be looking for it. The song makes you want to be.

    I love tamar..I wanna say that first. I feel songs have been done over this track for years and its yime it stops. I feel this was done as an cd filler and should have never been released as an single. Just being very honest, nothing against tamar at all.

    Tamar’s not playing, we’ll be seeing a lot of her this year.

    don’t think this will blow up the same way love and war did. the production is too dense and not modern enough. it will appeal to more adults than anything else. i must note the similarities between her 1st two singles and keyshia cole’s work. keyshia sampled this already and even some of her phrasing and overall vocal choices here remind of her. this hook isn’t too catchy here either. rooting for her. decent-ish song overall.

    YEEEEEESSS!!! I remember when this song leaked back in November or December and I was in LOVE with it. This is no shade to Tamar, but I think a sample like this would have been a good look for Beyonce. It could’ve been a way to describe her and Jigga, as well as a way to pay homage to B.I.G. Oh well, still love how Tamar sounds on it though.

    I like the song, but…
    We got Ciara, now Tamar. Does anyone plan on putting out a single this year that isn’t a cover of a 90s classic?
