I think Tamar Braxton has realised that Love And War isn't going to happen at this point. It's a realisation that might explain the fiscally considerate, black and white video that has been served to accompany the delicious Rnb groove- which let's not forget managed to hit #1 on the Itunes chart for all of about 24 hours.
"Truth be told", Tamar's weave was the thing that held my eyes captive throughout the entirety of the video. The way she worked it so artistically and with such flair had me convinced it was a metaphor for the tumultuous relationship of the lyrics. I just can't figure out how at this point. What I am sure of, is that a large portion of the budget went on its maintenance- so consistently luxurious and life-giving it was.
I hope Tamar realises that if she wants to compete, or be on the level of the Beyonces and Gagas of this world, she's going to need to come with more than just a great song and great hair: we need great visuals too! That being said, I'm going to let this video slide because I'm not sure any amount of money would have reignited the buzz Love And War had when it first hit in December.
With an album reportedly due in March [source], Tamar better get those coins ready to push this project harder, because there is an army of established, blonde haired Divas returning to music in 2013 with a lot to prove.
On a related note, what is it with budget videos and Divas and the beach [link]?
