Lady Gaga Helps Out Best Friend Tamar Braxton Land No.1 On iTunes
Lady Gaga has a good heart, especially when it comes to her friends. Many of you may know Tamar Braxton – Toni’s younger sister – or you may know her from her spinoff show Tamar and Vine on WeTV which followed the singer’s life on wanting to get back into the music industry and record her forthcoming album. Earlier this week, the season finale aired, where Tamar can be seen performing her song ‘Love and War’ and it didn’t take long for the song to climb the charts on iTunes.
Now, where does Gaga come into all of this? While the single was on the second spot, without any kind of promotion – excluding WeTV – Gaga wanted to do something special for her dearest friend, by tweeting out her support for the singer, prompting thousands of people to retweet the comment and buy the song.
The mother monster had tweeted:
“K I NEVER PROMOTE ARTISTS but if u want your mind blown check @tamarbraxtonher “Love & War” She’s Toni Braxton sister + her voice is BEYOND.”
“MYSELF AND @tamarbraxtonher have been the best of friends since her husband Vincent discovered + signed me when I was 20. SHE IS INCREDIBLE.”
“Buy ‘Love And War’ http://itunes.com/tamarbraxton It would mean a lot to me monsters if u would support her. Its her turn to shine. #2 on iTunes.”
After Gaga contributed, the single went straight to No.1, beating out Bruno Mars’ Locked Out Of Heaven and will.i.am’s Scream and Shout. Braxton and her husbad/manager (who also manages Gaga’s career) Vincent Herbert are now hoping to finish off Tamar’s forthcoming album, which is surely going to be a hit after her success with the lead single.
