Tamar Braxton learned about the delayed release of her third studio album, Calling All Lovers, the same day we all did. And now, the singer is speaking out.
In a lengthy, heartfelt message on her Instagram page, the new Dancing With the Stars contestant opened up about the delay, the project and her emotions surrounding the release of her labor of love.
“I struggled with this post for about a week and finally I have the strength, the will & the WANT to say ANYTHING about #callingalllovers since I found out about it being pushed back around the same time you all did…all things happen for a reason,some we are still searching to find. Some unexplained. Some we know crystal clear. But the bottom line is I went against EVERYTHING I preached and believed “never let a person stop you”.. Never give up and that I did. I lost hope in something that is SO personal, SO real, So needed to say, SO needed to hear. Without thinking about MY purpose,which I know, but getting in my OWN way because of FEAR, Anger,& lost hope.”
“But here I AM because of a simple Choice: change your mind and your heart! This album is a blessing I thought I would NEVER have. Love and War wasn’t “supposed” to happen. I was written off & forgotten about. But for some reason God saw fit. And so I HAVE to look at THIS album as an extension to his blessings.
WHAT?? You gave me ANOTHER CHANCE?? It’s so not about who buys it. Who likes it. But the purpose. And God I’m sorry. I realize that u didn’t have to give me ANOTHER chance to sing,to tour, to do what I love. I was mad and caught up in me that I never announced my tour with Mjb *who does that* but that was just me being my OWN enemy which I didn’t need to add MySELF to the list I’m sorry to my amazing #tamartianfriends for shutting down & not keeping u posted.”
The siger goes on to reveal that she thinks Calling All Lover is better than her last LP, Love & War.
“I don’t think I’ve ever worked so hard on something. I feel like it’s my BEST work yet. In my opinion it’s BETTER than L&W!! So OFFICIALLY I am proud to say that you can pre-order my NEW AMAZING Album #CallingAllLovers on iTunes. And my new song #catfish. Please don’t be like me and stand in front of yourself!! Don’t miss your blessing because of YOU. Forgive then PUSH into your destiny #callingalllovers8/2.”
Calling All Lovers, which was supposed to be released on September 11, will now be available on October 2.
