Tamar Braxton Inks Deal With Epic Records?
It’s been a long time coming for Braxton Family Values star Tamar Braxton. If you know a bit about her musical history, you know that she hasn’t had the best of luck as far as record deals go. According to TV One, in the past the 35-year-old singer reportedly signed deals with Dreamworks Records, Tommy Mottola’s Casablanca Records and Universal Records. Unfortunately, none of those deals really worked out for the youngest Braxton sister. Late last year, Tamar inked a deal with hubby Vincent Herbert’s Streamline Records, an imprint of Interscope Records. But that also seems to be old news, as the singer appears to have recently signed a deal with Epic Records.
No official announcement has been released on behalf of Tamar or Epic, yet. But, on the company’s website, Braxton is listed among their roster of artists. The singer’s highly anticipated album Love and War was scheduled for a February 2013 release, but was pushed back for unknown reasons. Whether or not the label change had something to do with the release of “Love and War” being delayed is unknown, but it is certainly a possibility.
On iTunes, Braxton’s popular single, “Love and War” rose to the top of the charts within hours of its release, selling 84,000 downloads during the first week, in addition to debuting at number 57 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. Recently, the single was briefly removed from the iTunes Store. After it was put back up, “Love and War’s” publisher was listed as Epic Records.
So far, the rescheduled release date for Tamar’s new album has not been announced, but we’ll be sure to keep you posted!
