Tamar Braxton recently scored the No. 9 spot on the Billboard Adult R&B Airplay charts for her new single “Crazy Kind of Love.” The song was released on March 20 and is a remake of Whitney Houston‘s 1985 single, “Saving All My Love for You.”
Tamar’s hit single was also featured on the “True to the Game 2” soundtrack. The R&B singer implied in an interview with Billboard that this was the only song that she has sung that was not original. “For me, this is like one of the first songs that I hadn’t written before,” she said. “My publisher actually played this for me, and Manny [Halley] had called me about doing a song for the soundtrack. … And once he played it, I instantly thought it would be a good fit for the movie,” she said.
Tamar celebrated her large accomplishment by retweeting the music video on Twitter. A fan page congratulated the “Braxton Family Values“ reality star for “sitting pretty at number 9 on the Billboard charts.” Tamar responded, “And my big sister is #5,” and concluded her message with a heart and star emoji. Toni Braxton, Tamar’s oldest sibling, ranked above Tamar with her single “Do It.”
Shortly after posting on Twitter, the Grammy-nominated singer shared a photo of the Billboard list in an Instagram story. She circled the No. 9 slot and wrote over the image in pink letters: “Won’t he do it!!”
“Crazy Kind of Love” is Tamar’s first top-10 R&B single since 2017, when “My Man,” from her fifth studio album, “Bluebird of Happiness,” ranked No. 3 on the charts. Her recent hit record reportedly had nearly 1.4 million streams on Spotify. In addition to topping the charts, the television personality is also co-hosting the new VH1 reality show “To Catch a Beautician” with celebrity hairstylist Johnny Wright.
