Album Cover: Toni Braxton & Babyface – ‘Love, Marriage & Divorce’

Love, Marriage & Divorce

Toni Braxton and Kenny “Babyface” Edmonds star in the musical drama Love, Marriage & Divorce. The R&B powerhouses have revealed the movie-like cover for their duets album, which navigates the ups and downs of a relationship.

It’s been 21 years since the Grammy-winning diva and legendary producer worked together on 1992′s “Give U My Heart” off the Boomerang soundtrack.

“I think because Babyface and I have both gone through divorces, we can relate and we can collaborate together on this topic and make it so others who have gone through this situation can relate,” Toni tells ESSENCE.

The album is due Nov. 25 featuring the single “Hurt You,” for which the video premiered last week.

What do you think of the cover art? Weigh in below.

    So far the visual art is better than the actual music. I’m hoping that “hurt you” isn’t the strongest single on the album. Toni is synonymous with the word flop after the shenanigans she pulled with “Pulse”. If this album flops too, she will officially be a joke. You would think that after all the bankruptcy crap that she would want to clean up her name by showing off what an amazing singer she is. Kind of hard to be her fan after so much stupidity. Doing weird ish with your money is your own business but can you at least take the time to be a worthwhile artist again?

    @TiredofToniFlopping, You are full of Crap and need to get it together. Which 90s artist still sell the same way? Toni has hits for years, which I cannot say the same for about 90% of these gimmicks walking around. Popularity wont last for ever but true talent like Toni will NEVER be done away. Pulse was an awesome album and she did not make herself sick that she could not promote it. Flop? You are delusional as hell. You are so quick to talk about money worries yet stories how that came about is lacking. After the comment you posted, you are officially a JOKE. Toni got nothing to prove, been there, done that and still doing. With all the heart disease, lupus and deal with an autism child, guess what she is still standing. Toni is the definition of resilient. “Tired of Delusional fools”

    @Crystal Brown, thank you for saying exactly what I was going to say. Disrespectful people who calls themselves fans but then to make stupid remarks and criticism. They are the worst.

    @Tamika, What’s really bad are so-called fns who play the roll of yes men and delude artists into thinking their shitty music is good. I’m looking forward to LMD coming out because I refuse to believe that this first single is the strongest song on the album. “Hurt you” pretty much sucks and I KNOW that talented veterans like Toni and Face can do better.

    @Crystal Brown, No need to get all up in your feelings. Pulse did flop and so did MTAW. There’s nothing wrong with honesty. Being a Toni fam doesnt mean that you have to be delusional.

    @Crystal Brown, oh so fans can’t be critical? Sounds more like brainwashed stan behavior than being a fan. I’m all for fans being critics because at least we’re being critical of something we love rather than haters just randomly trolling.

    @Crystal Brown, “Delusional fool” how about you being deluded enough to not acknowledge the freaking stupidity that went down with the Pulse album. Leaking every track on an album and then systematically putting the shittiest ones on the final track list is just plain suspect. I don’t believe that shit was just bumbling foolery or an accident. As a fan I’m sure that most of us are grateful that she leaked all the tracks so that we didn’t get stuck with that nonsense on the Pulse album. That had the potential to be great and the final track selection was terrible. If you think otherwise then you’re delusional. Most of the songs I listen to from the Pulse era are the ones that didn’t make the album or were randomly used as bonus tracks. PLEASE don’t do that shit again, Toni. I hope she accomplished whatever with that album and can finally get back to being out great work.

    @Friedchickenisha, Go support the album so it will not be a flop if that is what all the negative people on here believe or go somewhere and CTFU!!!

    @Len1975,

    Flops aren’t measured by the number of people that support the album. IMO, it’s the quality that matters. Some people say Libra was a flop and I completely disagree. That’s my favorite album and I don’t care that I don’t know anyone else who has it. Libra sold poorly but was not a flop because it was chock full of great music. Pulse was just a flopping disaster.

    @Friedchickenisha, Hey, i think that the only problem with the last two Toni´s album (Pulse and LMD – from the three songs that i could listen to) is that the songs are having very poor soul from her. The songs lost the glowing, i don´t know how. But still support both Toni and Baby. For me they are the best! Go Toni and Babyface

    @TiredofToniFlopping, the stupid thing u doing is the fact that ur not basing your views on facts, but on the foolish stupid views the media said abt toni. Toni set the record staight about the bankruptcy issues, if u were a real fan, ud know what realy caused all the flops and bankruptcy! But ur just a fool following what the rest of the foolish media who tries to bring toni down! So your comments are stupid! Pulse didn’t do well sales wise, but it was a great album, just low promotion. Libra did well for an album with no promotion, even good media commented on that part!

    Its exciting, they are collaborating with each other again. Give U My Heart is one of my favourite songs from the 90′S.

    Pulse didn’t flop, it was a great album that actually wasn’t promoted right. Her manager sucked at the Time, and she had just recovered from being Ill. I actually brought the album and LOVED IT.It Seems to me that everybody’s expectation of Toni is suppose to be so perfect or in competition with else . Why can’t you listen and enjoy her music . You listen to all of that other crap you call singing, and they can’t sing for shit. Everybody can jump around with their pants hanging down to the floor, cursing and calling women bitches and hoes and women are actually dancing around to it. And to the fool ‘ve always saying Toni work is a “flop” maybe your one of the down low brothers who like to take in the behind, because your always downing Toni. Making me have suspicion about your ass. I don’t give a damn if it do flop, I’m buying it anyway. So you might as well go sit your Motherfucking ass down, who died and made your ass boss bitch? What do you do for a living? Beside dipping in everyone else’s business bitch.

    @Friedchickenisha Not because you don’t like the pulse album does not mean it is a flop. The PULSE ALBUM was amazing, it just was not promoted. Most times the artist gets the blame but the problem lies with the label. Most of these artists out today that you guys claimed are winning with the crap they put out are just for today. A few months from now they are all forgotten. I can pick any song from Toni, Babyface, Anita Baker.etc, and they are still fresh and are telling stories. By the way, this is a Toni and Babyface album, not Toni’s album alone. Some of you need to get with the program and stop talking bull!

    The new tony braxton album LOVE,MARRIAGE,DIVORCE is simply of the hook she is still sexy as hell and still producing amazing hits after hits-one cnt find fault whn it comes to toni’s music take her “PULSE” album for instance the songs are all essential,all the songs on tht album is amazing who cn find fault with the hit singles “WOMAN” and “WHY WON’T U LOVE ME”she poured her heart and soul in wth each and every track.and now the new album-she just goes from level to level never disapionting her fans. There are artist who should and must tke some lessons from here,she cn still teach them a thing or two.and she looks incredible compare to most ppl her age .and as for baby face her did bring it to the album.wht a great colaboration.

    Toni braxton and baby face colaboration is off the hook, I so love it tony braxton still have it tht one thing fr sure,artist cn still learn so much fr her,and as fr baby face he still has it fr someone who has been out of action so long.tony braxton is still sexy compare to women her age.tony braxton pour her heart and soul out to each and every song she does- her medical condition can’t keep her down thts how strong she is-she is a real inspiration fr other artist.she so does knw how to produce killer albums after album

    I’ve listened to the entire album and I only heard two songs that I might want to hear again and not on repeat. @Crystal Brown, why is it that anyone has to be a fool because they don’t have the same opinion you have? This music will stand or not on it’s own without condecending remarks to people who are giving their opinions. Let’s see what the album does on the charts. OBW I thought Beyonce’s new album wasn’t that hot either, see can do a video a day on each of the songs and that’s not going to change that. Do you still hear anyone talking about it? This is a new age people are not forced to listen to music they don’t like.
