Tamar Braxton’s fans were thrilled when she announced her fourth album, Bluebird of Happiness, would drop on September 29. However, many feelings have changed as of today.
Braxton just went to Instagram to reveal Bluebird will be her final album.
“THIS is my BEST & LAST album! Enjoy,” she wrote.
It’s official; a new Toni Braxton album is on the horizon.
In a recent sit down with The Insider, the R&B/Soul legend says her new project, ‘Sex & Cigarettes,’ will arrive early 2018 and that it will be for the grown and sexy.
“I’m excited; it’s been awhile. The last project I did was me and Babyface,” Braxton says. “The new album comes out at the top of the year, and it’s called ‘Sex & Cigarettes.’ I feel like I’m older; I wanna say what I feel, I don’t wanna be censored.”
As previously reported, the project is lead by the single “Deadwood,” which is said to be a raunchy record. A music video has been shot, and Braxton says it will be a steamy one.
“There’s this guy in the video who is super sexy,” she says. “I think we’re going to see a lot of him; he’s great eye candy.”
Braxton’s last album was 2014’s ‘Love, Marriage & Divorce’ with Babyface. Between time, she has been working on the Lifetime film, Fate Under Fire, which will premiere in 2018. Braxton plays Antoinette Tuff, the struggling single mom from Georgia who heroically averted a tragedy, saving hundreds of lives when she convinced a deranged gunman who stormed a Decatur, GA, elementary school in 2013 to surrender.
Faith Under Fire marks a return to Lifetime for Braxton, whose biopic Toni Braxton: Unbreak My Heart drew record ratings for the network.
Before the world gets Toni’s new project, they will be blessed with new music from her sister, Tamar Braxton, who is gearing up for the release of ‘Bluebird of Happiness’ on September 29th.
On September 29, Epic/Legacy Recordings, in partnership with The Estate of Michael Jackson, will release Michael Jackson SCREAM, a collection of 13 of his all-time most electrifying and danceable songs including Ghosts, Torture, Thriller, and Dirty Diana. In addition, SCREAM includes a newly created bonus track, “Blood on the Dance Floor X Dangerous,” a high-energy five-song mash-up from the acclaimed remixer The White Panda. The track will be offered as an instant grat when you pre-order SCREAM digitally, available on all streaming platforms.
Each track on SCREAM is remarkable in its own way. For example, “Dirty Diana” was the fifth consecutive No. 1 song from the album ‘Bad,’ which shattered records for consecutive chart topping singles off a single album; “Thriller”, penned by Rod Temperton, was the seventh of an unprecedented seven Top 10 singles from Thriller, the biggest-selling album of all time; and the Top 5 hit “Scream” is the only duet between Michael Jackson and his sister Janet. Also included are fan favorites from The Jacksons’ albums – “Torture” and “This Place Hotel” (the first single to be written, composed, and arranged solely by Michael); and, making its first appearance on a Michael Jackson album, “Somebody’s Watching Me,” the international 1985 hit by Rockwell featuring an iconic hook sung by Michael.
Fans are invited to Official Michael Jackson SCREAM Album Celebrations this fall. These celebrations will take place in six major cities around the world: Paris, London, Sydney, Berlin, Los Angeles, and Tokyo. The events will include screenings of Michael’s seven short films from the SCREAM album including the full-length 40 minute Michael Jackson’s Ghosts, rarely seen following its initial screening at the 1997 Cannes Film Festival. An after party will follow. More information on the Official Michael Jackson SCREAM Album Celebrations will be announced in the coming days.

Brian McKnight has released his 13th studio album, Genesis. The 12-track project includes McKnight’s singles “Forever” and “I Want U.”
McKnight said his goal for this album was “to figure out how to bridge that gap between the music we made in the ’90s and trying to make modern music, without sounding 21.”
He continued, “I’m 48. I can’t make a record that sounds like a Drake record, even if I wanted to. We as the older group of guys have to stay true to ourselves. I’m just gonna make great music.”
Overall, Genesis is a cohesive body of work that is grounded in traditional R&B with slight references to today’s sound. Some of the standout tracks include “I Want U,” “10 Million Stars,” “Forever” and the title track.
Genesis is the follow-up to 2016’s More than Words.
