Tamar Braxton dropped a new video to her latest single, “If I Don’t Have You” last week. 

We’ve got behind-the-scenes footage of the sultry video set in a 1930s brothel co-starring Nene Leakes as a madam. Braxton and sisters Khadijah and Malika Haqq play the ladies of the house.

Braxton says the song is an ode to vulnerability and honesty. “The whole vibe of ‘If I Don’t Have You’ is about being transparent, being aware with yourself,” she said. “If I don’t have you in my life, I don’t have anything! Because sometimes we say things that we don’t mean, and people can get the wrong message by having an argument or not being able to express ourselves, so this song is just something that you can just play and let it talk for you.”
