Multi-talented artist Tamar Braxton is celebrating the success of “Crazy Kind of Love”, the first soundtrack to the upcoming theatrical release “True To The Game 2,” scheduled to be in theatres nationwide late November 2020. Released earlier this year by Manny Halley Production, Imani Entertainment and Boss of Bosses, “Crazy Kind of Love” recently charted #2 on Media Base and Billboard, increasing by +140 and +96 points consecutively.
Manny Halley, CEO of Manny Halley Production, and Imani Entertainment originally contacted the Grammy-nominated artist about a supporting role in the film but knew he needed Braxton for the soundtrack as well. “When our team was exploring our artists for the “True To The Game 2″ soundtrack, we knew it would not be complete without Tamar,” said Halley. “Once I heard the final track, I knew it had to be the lead single. I am thankful for Tamar’s contribution to the overall project. Tamar is a superstar and we are here for her!”
In addition to Tamar Braxton, the “True To The Game 2” soundtrack will features music by Burna Boy, Jeremiah, OT Genasis, Derez De’Shon, Freeway, Wheezy Beatz (Young Thug F/ Gunna “Hot,” Meek Mill F/ Drake “Going Bad,” Lil Baby F/ Drake “Yes Indeed”), Dave East, London on Da Track (Rich Gang’s “Lifestyle,” Summer Walker’s “Over It,” French Montana’s “No Stylist”) and many more.
In select theaters late November 2020, “True To The Game 2” is the sequel to the original New York Times bestseller by Teri Woods, and stars Vivica A. Fox (“Empire”), Andra Fuller (“The Haves and the Have Nots”), Erica Peeples (“Fall Girls”), Niatia “Lil Mama” Kirkland (“When Love Kills: The Falicia Blakely Story”), Iyana Halley (HBO’s “Sharp Objects”) and introducing Jeremy Meeks.
Directed by Jamal Hill (“Brotherly Love,” “Deuces”), the story picks up a year after the murder of drug dealer Quadir Richards, whose death carries consequences for all who knew him — especially Gena (Peeples), his love interest. Separating herself from Philly’s dangerous scene, Gena has reinvented herself as a journalist, living and working in New York City. Forced to take some time off work, Gena is sent on assignment to Los Angeles for a career-changing story.
Supporting cast include Rotimi (“Power”), Tamar Braxton (“Braxton Family Values”), Faith Evans, Waka Flocka, Bre-Z (“All American”), Bernice Burgos, Juliet “Juju” Cee, London on Da Track and Paul Saucido (“Friday Night Lights”).
“True To The Game 2” is written by Preston Whitmore and produced by Manny Halley, Rodney Turner II and Yolanda Halley. David Wolfgang (“Bloomers”) serves as director of photography.
