The former X Factor judge was sporting long blonde hair extensions and all-black ensemble as she arrived at Southwark Crown Court on Thursday morning (9 January) for a preliminary hearing.
During today's ten-minute hearing, the N-Dubz star spoke only to confirm her name and say she understood the process.
The trial will begin the day after her 26th birthday. A case management hearing will take place on 27 March.
Tulisa has denied being involved in the supply of Class A drugs after a newspaper sting operation accused her of offering to introduce an undercover reporter to a drug supplier.
She was arrested on 4 June and released on bail.
She denied the charge during an appearance at Westminster Magistrates' Court in December, where she was granted unconditional bail and told to appear at Southwark Crown Court today.
After that hearing, her lawyer said: "In due course Tulisa will give a full answer to these allegations in court proceedings."
The Young' singer appeared at Southwark Crown Court alongside rapper Mike GLC, who has also been charged in relation to the incident. He too has denied the charge.
Around 40 photographers had gathered outside ahead of her arrival.
Tulisa, 25, has kept a relatively low profile since her arrest last year, although she has gradually returned to her social media channels, most recently sharing pictures via Instagram of herself working out.
