Love and War - Tamar Braxton

Tamar Braxton has just released the music video for her single Love and War which was released in the U.S. in December and has to date reached number 56 on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart. It has also reached the top 10 in both the U.S. and U.K. R'n'B charts. It would be wonderful if an elegant R'n'B song like this was a hit worldwide. Tamar was one of five sisters who over the years were the group The Braxtons. Her voice on Love and War is as beautiful and strong as any of her sister Toni's songs.

Here is the video for Love and War which is the lead single from Tamar's album of the same name which is released in February.

and as a reminder of just how fabulous Tamar and her sisters were in The Braxton here is their powerhouse cover version of Diana Ross's The Boss.

and as great dance songs should be heard here also is the Masters at Work remix of The Boss.

4th and Vine - The new single by Sinead O'Connor

4th and Vine is the new single by Sinead O'Connor and is released on February 18th. It is the second single taken from her latest album How About I Be Me (And You Be You?)

4th and Vine is such a great and positive song. I remember liking it as soon as I heard it last year.
Here are two performances of the song.

The first is the brand new music video which was directed by Kathryn Ferguson.

and the second is Sinead's performance of 4th and Vine on Later With Jools Holland show from last November.
