Editor’s note (Sept. 29): Tiffany Evans was added as a special guest to two lineups.
Grammy-nominated singer and songwriter Tamar Braxton has enlisted several R&B singers to join her for her Love and War 10th Anniversary Tour.
Teairra Mari, Nivea, Candiace, Drew Sidora and Tiffany Evans are among the performers.
Sidora will perform two dates while the others will perform one.
Braxton extended its tour itinerary after high demand following its earlier announcement. It was previously four dates. It is now six dates.
Her tour will start on Oct. 22 at the House of Blues in Dallas and end on Jan. 20, 2024, at the Sound Board at the MotorCity Casino Hotel in Detroit.
Braxton is touring in celebration of the 10th anniversary of her sophomore album, Love and War. She is enjoying the success of her latest single, “Changed,” which was released on her birthday (March 17) earlier this year.
Her SWV-inspired song has climbed the charts and is currently at No. 3 on Billboard’s Adult R&B Airplay chart after peaking at No. 2.
In 2019, Mari released the seven-track EP Rehab, which included previously released songs “Deserve” and “I Ain’t Got It.” She followed suit with another song, “Somebody.”
Earlier this year, Nivea celebrated her birthday with her new single “Killa.” It marked her first single release since 2022’s “Virginia.” Prior to that pair of singles, she rolled out her EP, Mirrors, in 2019.
Most recently, Sidora has released her new single “Throw Us Away.” The song was produced by haZEL and is the lead single from Sidora’s debut album, tentatively titled SHIFT, which is set to be released in 2024.
Originally intended to be an EP, Sidora had a change of heart and decided to turn it into a full-length album.
“I’ve recorded so much music. At first, I was planning an EP but, now, I have so much story to tell and so much music to express that I am finalizing my first full-length project,” Sidora exclusively told Rated R&B.
She continued, “As you all know, I’ve been in music for a while, but the timing now seems so right. I used to be so discouraged at what didn’t work out, but it’s all about God’s timing. Because I am in this shift in my life, I plan to tentatively title my debut project SHIFT.”
Last year, Tiffany Evans collaborated with Jawan Harris as Jawan x Tiffany to release their new song “Patience.” They are releasing a new song titled “Issues” on Oct. 6.
