Well, Toni Braxton fought through her retirement thoughts and is back with a duet with her good friend, Babyface.
“Hurt You” is the first single from their new album, Love, Marriage, Divorce, and it gives you just about everything you need from these two R&B giants. It falls right in line with how many people in relationships feel when they’re the cause of it coming to an end. Oh, you know how it goes: you say or do something that can’t be taken back, realize how bad it stung your significant other and basically you have some serious apologizing to do.
The single is not about Toni hitting those major high notes. Instead, it almost sounds like a reintroduction of her voice to the listeners. It hasn’t been confirmed yet, but “Hurt You” was likely produced by Babyface and written by he and Braxton.
While older artists (older meaning when they first came out, not their age) tend to have a hard time getting their music played on even adult contemporary radio stations these days, “Hurt You” is extremely radio friendly and it looks like both Toni and Face should prepare themselves for hearing their new work on the air soon.
