Pass Or Play? In “Roller Coaster” Toni Braxton And Babyface Lament Ups & Downs Of Love
If you look at the personal lives of wonder producer Babyface and legendary singer Toni Braxton, you can see how these two would come together to sing about the ups and downs of love. Babyface divorced his wife, Tracey Edmonds, after nearly 13 years of marriage. And Toni just ended a four year separation and 12 year marriage from husband Keri Lewis. The couple finalized their divorce this past summer. If anybody knows that love can take you on a wild ride, it’s these two.
Hence the release of their new song “Roller Coaster.” The duo blends perfectly as they sing about how despite arguments and not being able to stand the other person, they know they won’t be able to love anyone else. For the chorus both Babyface and Toni harmonize:
“When love is like a roller coaster / Always up and down / When love takes over your emotion / Spins you round and round.”
