Every week on “Braxton Family Values,” we see sisters Traci, Toni, Tamar, Towanda and Trina deal with each other, their families and their careers. The one sister we didn’t really know much about, though, was Traci.
Yes, we know that she and her sisters sang background vocals with Toni in the ’90s, and we know that she loved rocking eclectic hairstyles–from short red cuts to blonde cuts–on the show, but she’s finally ready to launch her solo music career, giving us a glimpse of her passion and viewpoints.
Her forthcoming album Crash & Burn won’t be released until October 7, but Traci spoke with us about her new image, what she hopes to surprise fans with and why she appreciates the platform her sister Toni gave her to express herself. “That door is not easily open, especially these days in the industry. Sometimes they don’t listen to our generation. They listen to the younger, younger adult generation (laughs).”
