Last week, Toni, Traci, Towanda, Trina and Tamar Braxton made good on their promise to deck our aural halls with the release of Braxton Family Christmas. And while "Christmas just ain't Christmas" without the heavy rotation of holiday classics and carols, it's always a welcome treat to hear something original. The album's first release, "Everyday Is Christmas," fits the bill with the sisters basking in the glow of love rather than the shade of family drama.
Twenty-five years have passed since the five siblings have collaborated on a joint project, but you'd never know it. Their voices almost melt into each other, creating a seamless flow throughout the song. Built upon layers of '90s synth, drum machine loops, finger snaps and vaguely festive keys, the song celebrates the gift of love as the ladies sing, "Every day is Christmas 'cause of you/Wish the whole world could feel the way I do."
Sharing lead duties, each sister brings a unique voice to the table, keeping things interesting and enhancing the overall arrangement. Although rumor has it that Tamar opted out of this particular track, the song is a great way to get reacquainted with their blended sound. Check it out below and pick up your copy of Braxton Family Christmas via Amazon or iTunes.
