Hot on the heels of her chart-topping debut, Tamar Braxton is getting into the holiday spirit. The R&B diva has announced her very first Christmas album.
The seasonal set will arrive on Oct. 22 and finds Tamar putting her own spin on holiday classics. She has also recorded some original tunes and plans to add some “swagger and soul” to Christmas.
Just this week, her album Love and War debuted at No. 2 on the Billboard 200 and No. 1 on the Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart with 114,000 copies.
On Oct. 20, she will hit the road with John Legend on his “Made to Love” tour.
Braxton isn’t the only R&B star with a Christmas album on the way. Mary J. Blige will release A Mary Christmas on Oct. 15 featuring collaborations with Jessie J, Barbra Streisand, and Marc Anthony.
