Tamar Braxton Covers Rihanna’s ‘Diamonds’ at Paris Show

Tamar Braxton

Following the release of her chart-topping album Love and War, Tamar Braxton headed overseas for her first solo concert in Paris, France. The “Braxton Family Values” star performed before a sold-out crowd at Nouveau Casino and met up with her French Tamartians.

During Monday’s show, she had fans singing along to her Biggie-sampled single “The One” and sizzled with her ratchet club banger “Hot Sugar.” She also performed an acoustic cover of Rihanna’s “Diamonds.”

“I had a BALL! #cantwait2comeback,” tweeted Tamar.

She will join John Legend on his “Made to Love” tour starting Oct. 20 and is gearing up for the release of her first Christmas album on Oct. 22.

    I Love Tamar, but girl is a little off these days. She needs to practice more before doing major shows. She doesn’t have much control over her voice after giving birth, but hey more power to her.

    @A, I cant see anyone much paying to see her and John Legend


  4. okay so here's the deal

    I love Tamar, I think shes very talented, transparent and hilarious. there’s no denying that she can sing, BUT..why does she need the backing track and lip synching for most of “Hot Sugar” and can she please refrain from channeling Beyonce circa 2009..when she was covering Rihanna’s “Diamonds” I could not help but see elements of Bey’s “Dangerously in Love” especially at the 3:20 mark (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=50n3ABKhHKE) but I guess thats bound to happen. def a good performance from Tamar, shes wayyy better than most of her peers vocally..the performance aspect will certainly improve as it already has following her sub-par showcase on the wendy williams show. 7/10.

    Good performance of “The One” but I don’t like her version of “Diamonds”. She’s a very good singer and her album is one of the best this year but her sister Toni is from another planet and I’m waiting for her new album with Babyface.

    These are my videos!!!!!!! :)

    Love her the tone of her voice. No surprise that Diamonds was sang better the original singer.

    And what the hell is @A talking about?


  8. Deon Jefferson

    I didn’t even watch the other performances, I only clicked on this story because I knew she was covering “Diamonds” by Rihanna. I like Tamar but I think she needs to stick to her own material.


  9. Heather

    Pretty good cover.





  11. muzikxxx

    She has that annoying Beyonce reverb going on to make her voice sound bigger. She sounded good tho.


  12. mellisa

    i dont understand the hate. she sounded great, better than the person the song belongs to. of course she was over the top its TAMAR.
