New Video: Tamar Braxton – My Man


Tamar Braxton ripped the stage at the 2017 BET Awards with a stellar performance of her new hit single “My Man.” Quickly following her performance, the singer/reality star debuted the cinematic music video to the ballad.

Shot in black-and-white, the tale of infidelity inspired by her actual parents is brought to life by the R&B siren herself. After discovering that her man is having an affair with a friend, Tamar finds the hotel where they are laid up and busts through the door.

Slamming the girl into the bathroom sink, she tells off her husband, leaving him shocked and surprised.

“Word around town is that you live with her / And you said that she took your heart away / I told them that’s a lie / Cause I don’t want to hear no bullshit stories about my man,” she sings.

Tamar is currently prepping for the release of her new album, which she will be releasing later this year through her own independent imprint, Tamartian Land Records and Entertainment One.

Check out the video for “My Man” below.

Mary J. Blige & A$AP Rocky Perform at BET Awards

If any younger viewers doubted it, or weren’t in the know, Mary J. Blige showed off why she’s still the Queen of Hip Hop Soul on Sunday night at the 2017 BET Award.

The R&B legend brought her emotional new album, Strength of a Woman to the stage with a medley performance that everyone should be talking about.

Kicking off her set with “Set Me Free,” Mary launched into the song that was likely written with her estranged husband Kendu Isaacs in mind. “There’s a special place in hell for you,” she sang. “You gon’ pay for what you did to me.”

But soon, the horns came out and her attitude shifted to self-love on “Love Yourself (Remix).” Joined by A$AP Rocky, a group of musicians, and Black Panther-inspired men, Mary explained the importance of loving oneself through turmoil.

Trey Songz 2017 BET Awards

Trey Songz brought the sexy R&B early at the 2017 BET Awards on Sunday night.

Mr. Steal Your Girl gave a sensual medley performance of two tracks off his latest album, Tremaine. Trigga opened his set with “Nobody Else But You” surrounded by smoke. He sang to a single dancer, moving from center stage to a bench and then to the floor.

The subtle romancing didn’t last long though, and Trey brought out the “Animal.” For the provocative cut the R&B heartthrob was joined by a crew of scantily-clad ladies, whom he sang to.

“I’m a boss, I’m a boss, I’m the leader of the pack,” he sang, while the dancers lined up on a plush bench. “Boomerang, boomerang, baby, gon’ and throw it back / Do your thing, do your thing, girl, you don’t know how to act.”

Watch Out! The Hooligans are in the house!!

New Video: Trina feat. K. Michelle – If It Ain’t Me


Trina and K. Michelle fight back in the video for their brand new collaborative single, “If It Ain’t Me.”

The sexy R&B/Rap song is the latest single off Trina’s forthcoming album. In the Michael Garcia-directed video, the female rap star’s boyfriend (played by Dave East) isn’t remaining faithful when he’s out of town. The rapper is seen getting way too cozy with dancers at a strip club.

“Who you lovin’ when I go out on the tour? / Bring back a check, I bet that bitch is such a bore,” raps Trina. “Who you lovin’, who you wanna be f***in’? / I got ni**a groupies at me, but my vibrator buzzin’.”

K. Michelle shows up as the ride-or-die best friend, helping Trina through the heartache. “Somebody loves ya baby / And you know who it is, you know who it is / If it ain’t me then who?,” sings K.

She also adds the third verse addressing a petty dude who she left in the dust. “No more love, I’m wasted / Jack Daniels my baby / Pour it in my cup, forgot about you already,” she sings. “Ain’t no coming back to this / I just packed up my sh*t / Petty ni**as is the worst / I ain’t got time to be hurt.”
