Although widely known as a cast member of WEtv’s hit series’ Marriage Boot Camp Reality Stars and Braxton Family Values, Braxton is finally ready to release her first full-length album. Traci is hands down down for hr candor. She had a few moments today to chat about her new album, ‘Crash & Burn’.
What came across was sincere passion for this time in her life.
E8: So we think we know you, because you are on the screen, but what did you discover about yourself while working on this album?
Traci Braxton: (laughing) “I had a lot to say.I talked about love, about life, about real love, discovery. It was something that I did. I didn’t have to deal with my sisters saying we will did this or we will do that over here.
E8: What was the discover?
Traci Braxton: “I can find new love. I can find and follow my passions and my dreams. I thought my dreams of making it were over. I thought it was all dead and gone. I discovered that I can still do it. I can be happy.”
E8 If someone never met you and you had to pick one track on the album to explain who you were, what would it be?
Traci Braxton: “Passion” It’s it talking about the physical sense of love. It’s taking a bout that drive and desire.I am glad that I found that passion. I fell in love all over again”
When she hung up the phone she sounded genuinely happy. Good for her!
