Tamar Braxton searches for true love in the cinematic video for her new single “If I Don’t Have You.”
In the Harlem Nights-inspired clip, the “Braxton Family Values” star teams up with her fellow reality stars including “Real Housewife of Atlanta” NeNe Leakes, Shateria Moragne-el, and “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” stars Malika and Khadijah Haqq. The ladies work at a brothel and are used to a revolving door of men, but this time around, one man in particular has captured Tamar’s heart. But there’s one problem: He’s not in love with her.
Speaking about the concept of the song, Tamar shared some details: “It’s not a love song. And it’s not about Vince,” she said of her husband, Vincent Herbert. “It’s about an ex that I loved that wasn’t in love with me and I’m in a relationship by myself.”
In regards to the treatment for the video, Tamar explained: “I thought about it and I was like, ‘You know, it would be really cool if I had my real girlfriends in a bit of a brothel. But you know it could be in the 1930s, it could be—2015!” she told ET. “And it doesn’t necessarily mean that we’re selling ourselves. It just means we’re all looking for something, and you don’t really know what each individual is looking for ’til you see the video.”
The song will appear on Tamar’s upcoming album Calling All Lovers, due July 31.
