If you’ve already played out “Love and War” on your iPod, you’ll be happy to know that Tamar Braxton has dropped her new single, “The One,” just in time for summer, and it’s definitely hot!
The Braxton sister samples the Notorious B.I.G.’s “Juicy,” (aka Mtume’s “Juicy Fruit”) and croons about only needing one man in her life–Vince?
“You know very well, who you are/You’re the only one, you’ve got my heart.”
The singer talked about the summer banger with Rap-Up TV, which was produced by Yung Berg and LaShawn Daniels, and discussed the video, which she did while preggers in Cali: “It has so much energy, it’s so fun, it’s a summertime anthem record.”
“The concept of the video is just a summer throwback. It kinda gives you that feeling when you was in high school and you was with your boyfriend or your girlfriend and you go to the park and you hang out and you get all cute, and it’s just funners.”
We’re still waiting on that new album, Love and War, but with mommy duties coming, we’ll probably have to keep waiting. But to hold you over, here’s “The One,” with the singer performing it live. And to hear the iTunes version, click over to Rap-Up.com. Tell us if it’s a pass or play for you!
We know how much you love Tyler Perry’s Temptation star Lance Gross. So, when ESSENCE got the chance to visit his NYC hotel suite and have an intimate one-on-one with the Hot star, we took your burning love questions with us.
ESSENCE.com Relationships Editor Charli Penn got up close and personal with the hunky thespian, and new Magic Shave spokesman, who spoke candidly about what’s hot and what’s not to a man. For starters, he wants women to beware of a man’s representative and know that you’ll get further with a brother like him if you know how to take it slow.
“Take your time,” he says. “That’s the only way that you’ll truly get to know a person over time. A lot of people show up with their representative and that can last a year, two years, even three years. When it’s right, it’s right.”
