    Tamar talks new single

    Tamar Braxton’s ready to break out on her own again with a new single set to drop this summer.

    The "Braxton Family Values" star told ThatGrapeJuice.net that fans should expect music that will have them heading for the dance floor…or at least doing a little shimmy in their chair.

    "That’s the kind of music that I like, and that’s the kind of music you can expect from me," she said. 

    Tamar has attempted to go solo once before with "If You Don’t Wanna Love Me," but she views her forthcoming album as a reboot of her personal career.

    "I really feel like this is my first go-round at solo success because this is who I am. Before I had to act like somebody else and sing like somebody else," she explained hinting that she was prompted to sound like her sister Toni Braxton. "That’s not where she is right now. She is on her own two feet, and she loves her music."

    But what’s up with all her references to Beyonce and Lady GaGa? Find out in the video below.
