Tamar Braxton Net Worth: Career Beginnings
Tamar is the youngest sister of the Braxton family which includes the most popular of them all- Toni Braxton. Born on March 17, 1977 in Severn, Maryland, Tamar began to sing as a toddler. Together with her older sisters she sang in a church choir that was pastored by their father. Tamar formed a group named The Braxtons comprising of her four sisters Toni, Tracy, Towanda, and Triana.
The Braxtons signed with Arista Records in 1989 and released their debut single “Good Life” in 1990. The single was commercially unsuccessful reaching #79 on the Billboard charts. The group’s inability to be marketable was blamed on the obvious age difference between the sisters, causing Arista Records to annul their contract with the group. Older sister Toni won a recording deal with LaFace Records while the rest of The Braxtons were hired as back-up singers.
In 1996, The Braxtons sans Toni released an album titled So Many Ways, a remixed single of the same name featured rapper Jay Z. After Tamar left the group to sign with DreamWorks records in 1998, the other sisters went their separate ways.
“Ridiculous” was supposed to be Tamar’s debut solo album but the failure of the singles to gain airplay saw it being cancelled, a self-entitled album “Tamar” would go on to become her debut solo album but its commercial failure caused DreamWorks to drop her off the label. Tamar returned to working with her sister Toni who had now gained worldwide recognition, she co-wrote and sang background vocals for five of Toni’s album and even appeared in some videos.
