With their long relationship in the business, Toni Braxton and Babyface decided to collaborate on an album together. “Love, Marriage & Divorce” is expected to be an amazing album from the people who made songs like “Where Is My Love?” and “You’re Making Me High”. The album drops November 25th.
It had been over three years since either artist last graced Adult R&B, with Braxton’s 2010 hit “Hands Tied” peaking at No. 6 and Babyface’s 2009 single “I Need a Love Song” reaching No. 16. In their careers, Braxton has tallied 14 Adult R&B top 10s, including six No. 1s, while Babyface has notched 13 and four, respectively. According to Billboard.com
The Babyface-produced “Hurt You” is the first single off his and Braxton’s duets album “Love, Marriage & Divorce,” slated for a Dec. 3 release on Motown/Island Def Jam. Braxton picked up her fourth No. 1 on Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums with 2010′s “Pulse,” while Babyface’s last studio set was 2007′s “Playlist” which debuted and peaked at No. 7 on the survey.
“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.
