Video: Tamar Braxton f/ Future – ‘Let Me Know’

Tamar Braxton

In between hosting “The Real” and taping her reality show “Tamar & Vince,” Tamar Braxton still finds time to slay the screen in the extravagant video for her new single “Let Me Know.” The R&B songstress shines in all her diva glory in the clip, which she directed. She switches up her look several times, from blonde to brunette, and even covers her naked body in glitter.

The Future-assisted song samples Aaliyah’s “At Your Best (You Are Love).” “I’m definitely a fan of Aaliyah,” Tamar said of the late singer. “She was one of my good friends because her uncle [Barry Hankerson] and my sister [Toni] were affiliated at the time, so I spent a lot of time with her.”

Tamar is currently in the studio finishing the follow-up to last year’s Love and War. The new season of “Tamar & Vince” premieres tonight at 10 p.m. on WE tv.

Tamartians, get your life below.

Video: Gwen Stefani – ‘Baby Don’t Lie’

Gwen Stefani

A day after dropping her comeback record “Baby Don’t Lie,” her first solo track since 2006, Gwen Stefani steps into a trippy world in the colorful and grainy video, directed by Sophie Muller, who’s helmed many of Gwen and No Doubt’s videos.

The blonde bombshell shows off her effortless style as she walks alongside some animated creatures and dances in the streets with her girls, while rocking her pink Beats and Pumas.

The song, produced by Benny Blanco, Ryan Tedder, and Noel Zancanella, is not entirely autobiographical. “You know, parts of it are and parts of it are pulling from the past,” said Gwen, who is married to Bush frontman Gavin Rossdale.

In between tapings for “The Voice,” she hopes to release her third solo album in December and has collaborated with “Hollaback Girl” hitmaker Pharrell on a song called “Spark the Fire.” If that wasn’t enough, the mother of three is simultaneously working on a new No Doubt album.
