Toni Braxton is back. Four years after teaming up with Babyface on Love, Marriage & Divorce, the R&B legend returns with her ninth studio album Sex & Cigarettes.
Braxton’s 8-song effort features the previously-released singles “Deadwood,” “Long As I Live,” and the title track. Colbie Caillat is the album’s lone guest (“My Heart”). Elsewhere, Toni handles things on her own on “FOH,” “Sorry,” and “Coping.”
Recently, Toni Braxton revealed what fans should expect from her first solo album in eight years. “It’s a lot of pre- and post-sex on this album,” she told “Sway in the Morning.” “Have you ever had a guy that came to your bed, smelling like sex and cigarettes? Not literally, meaning the scent of somebody else he’s been with. You just know. The intuition is letting you know something is going on. That’s what the album is about.”
Additionally, Toni’s fiancé Birdman praised her talents. “She’s a legend,” the Cash Money boss told Rap-Up. “She do her thing. She’s just prolific with that shit. I think she’s a one-of-one and a very special talent in the music business.”
