Tamar Braxton Heads to a Brothel in ‘If I Don’t Have You’ Video
Tamar Braxton finds love in an unusual place in the stylish video for her latest single, “If I Don’t Have You.” In the clip, the R&B singer plays a lady of the night who works in a brothel.
She brings some of her reality TV stars along to co-star in the video. Former The Real Housewives of Atlanta star Nene Leakes plays Madame Nene who runs the brothel and gives the ladies a hard time. Rick Ross’ ex-girlfriend Shateria Moragne-el, and celebutante twins Malika and Khadijah Haqq play Tamar’s co-workers in the bordello.
The centerpiece of the video is Tamar falling in love with a client but, unfortunately, the man is not in love with her. The 38-year-old songstress pines for him throughout the clip while displaying many stylish and sexy looks. We're particularly fond of the all-black one-piece bathing suit look and the matching jacket with the gold embroidery.
“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!” says Tamar about the video. “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.”
