Jesse McCartney Rings Up Toni Braxton

Jesse McCartney and Toni Braxton

Beyoncé isn’t the only one to put a ring on it. Singer-songwriter Jesse McCartney exclusively tells Rap-Up.com about a similar ring-themed track he wrote for Toni Braxton’s new album.

“I did a record for Toni Braxton called ‘My Ring’s Too Heavy,’” says the soon-to-be 22-year-old pop star, whose album Departure: Recharged hits stores today. “Three weeks later, Beyoncé came out with a record called ‘Single Ladies’ and it sort of has a hand and a ring theme behind it.”

The song was recorded for the “Dancing with the Stars” alum’s sixth studio album, due out on Atlantic Records. “No offense to Beyoncé, I think Toni’s is a little bit better in my opinion, but we’ll have to see what the charts do.”

Meanwhile, the “Bleeding Love” songwriter has plans to hit the studio with “American Idol” Jordin Sparks for her sophomore album.

    Jesse, you’re a big goat for calling beyonce out, cos this sh*# has got nothin to do with bey, because you’re trying to get attention, that sucks boy. And for ur info the dream and christopher wrote single ladies. And you have no right to compare em both! You bloody loser!
    Next!

    Troy Carter, Eve’s long time manager, is Toni Braxton’s manager now. Toni IS better vocal wise, let’s face it. I totally agree. Shut up babybenz!

    Actually Jesse,

    Toni had a song titled “Take This Ring” on her 2005 album Libra.

    Sorry bro but you’re not a trendsetter.

    Jesse wasn’t saying that Toni herself was better than Beyonce, he was saying that the track he wrote for her is better than “Single Ladies”.

    I can’t wait for Toni to come back out. There was a song leaked a couple of months ago (or even more) called “Melt (Like an Iceberg)” and i loved it.

    Don’t go calling Jesse a big goat, babybenz. Jesse was just given his opion. Rich, the two songs have nothing to do with each other. rod grey, Jesse has wrote for Leona Lewis, he will be witten for Jordon Sparks later on this year. In my opion, Jesse should be keeping these songs, because all the songs he writes get popular.

    HAPPY 22ND BIRTHDAY JESSE!!!!!!!!!!

    Jesse was giving a opinion, he didn’t say he was setting a TREND he just said it was ironic, and atleast he knows whats up, toni is the elder therfor she deserves respect and she has good soul music(although now she has to compete with the beyonces and rihannas), you def can’t say the same for beyonce(sorry but its true) and beyonce writes songs similar to toni’s but they most cetainly don’t even compete.
