Overview

She may be Toni Braxton's baby sister, but Tamar is a diva in her own right. Although the sassy songstress possesses smoky, pew impassioned pipes reminiscent of Toni's, lyrically, Tamar is more round-the-way girl than Hollywood Hills princess. Forget the glamour. Tamar demands love and respect. From the party romps "Get None," featuring Jermaine Dupri and Amil and "No Disrespect," produced by Missy Elliot; to the plaintive ballads "If You Don't Wanna Love Me" and "I'm Over You," Tamar proves that she's not the woman to play games with. Despite her self-sufficient stance, the sometimes sultry Tamar is not totally opposed to being wined and dined. On the piano-heavy "Money Can't Buy You Love," which finds Tamar hitting a piercing high note à la Mariah, she muses that her suitors shouldn't be afraid to share the wealth. Not that the younger Ms. Braxton needs to concern herself with fiscally based friendship. After all, her flawless debut sounds a lot like money in the bank.

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Roxanne Blanford
This solo debut from Toni Braxton's younger sister, Tamar is both impressive and enjoyable. It features a fitting mix of soulful ballads and upbeat rhythm tracks, replete with mellow harmonies and sassy backbeats. Tamar collaborates with top-notch producers Jermaine Dupri and Tricky Stewart to create a smooth, radio-friendly sound along the lines of Mariah Carey and Christina Aguilera. While not in possession of a vocal range as refined as her sister Toni, Tamar hits her own mark on standout tracks "If You Don't Wanna Love Me," "Tonight," and "Get None." This recording is primarily a quiet display of Tamar's competence at present day rhythm & blues with some contemporary hip-hop flavor thrown in. If it wasn't such an all-around good listen, it would certainly be worthy of recognition on the basis of its professional presentation alone.

I think Tamar should have been a platinum recording artist with this album including best album of the year and best video of the year for the song Get None feat Jermaine Dupri.
