A busy reality TV show schedule -- with, count 'em, three programs -- isn't keeping Tamar Braxton out of the studio.
The youngest member of the singing Braxton family tells Billboard she's "more than thinking about" her follow-up to 2012's "Love and War," which debuted at No. 1 on the Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart in September and No. 2 on the Billboard 200 and received three Grammy Award nominations. "We've actually started recording some (songs) already, and I'm really excited about it," Braxton reports. "I've written about maybe 10 or 12 song, and I really, really love four of them. I have a set-up on my (tour) bus, and if I come up with ideas I just write them right there. We're right in the beginning stages of it, but I'm really enjoying the material we're starting to do."
Like "Love and War," Braxton says the new songs will reflect her state of mind at the time of writing. "Right now I'm in a place where I'm really happy, and sometimes I'm overwhelmed, but at the end of the day I'm just trying to balance it all and understand myself as a woman," she explains. "So those are the songs I'm writing right now, but I can't say whether that's going to be the end result."
