Tamar Braxton and John Legend each have new albums out that share their takes on that powerful four-letter word that makes our worlds go round—Love and War and Love In The Future, respectively—and now the two have joined forces for what is sure to be a must-see tour this fall. Tamar recently stopped by the VH1 headquarters to discuss her upcoming tour, as well as her two new loves—her son Logan Vincent Herbert, and her album Love and War, the title track of which Tamar says is the soundtrack to her relationship with her hubby and manager Vince.
The new mother is not only in love with her little boy (who she jokes is “a lot of fun” and is “just like his daddy, very fickle and insubordinate”), but with her musical labor of love, her album Love and War, which shot to the No. 3 spot on the iTunes Album Charts upon its release on September 3rd. For this album, which Tamar considers to be her first despite having released an LP called Tamar back in 2000, she made sure that she was involved with the writing and concepting of the material from the start. She explains why this was so important to her in the clip below:
When asked to name her favorite tracks on the album, Tamar gushed without hesitation, “All of them! I really, really love this album, and if this wasn’t my album, I would want it to be.” She expressed the same unabashed enthusiasm when talking about her love and appreciation for her tour mate, John Legend. “He had no idea that I was such a superfan,” she gushed. “I would see him in passing and I’ve always been a huge John Legend fan, so when it came about that he wanted me to open up for him I was just like, ‘Oh my gosh!’ I don’t think he knows to this day that I’m a huge John Legend fan. But I’m sure he knows now.”
