After two years and much anticipation, Bluebird Of Happiness, Tamar Braxton’s fifth studio album has arrived.
The 11-track project, which was executive produced by Braxton, Vincent Herbert, and Rodney Jerkins, includes fiery singles we’ve all taken a listen to like “My Man” and “Blind.” Surprisingly, Bluebird only features one guest artist, which is rapper Yo Gotti, who appearances on “Hol’ Up.”
Earlier this summer, Braxton shared with Rap-Up
that the album would be a combination of her past works. “It’s almost like Love and War
and Calling All Lovers
got together and had a baby,” she said, also noting it as her “best work yet.”
However, in addition to gushing over her love for the album, Braxton did make mention that Bluebird would be her final album. Visiting Wendy Williams this week, the songstress confirmed her words once more, but did assure that she wouldn’t be quitting music all together. “I have to take a step back and figure out what is working and what is not working,” she said.
Apparently, during the process of making the album, Braxton embarked on a much needed journey for joy, expressing, “On my quest for happiness, I had to get in tune with my spirit,” she said. “I felt so broken, so lost, and confused about everything. [I still feel that way] somedays, but I’m a lot better than I was.”
Braxton is set to join Xscape and Monica on “The Great Xscape Tour”
this fall, which kicks off Nov. 22 in Richmond.
