Toni Braxton’s ‘Pulse’ Pushed Back – Again

toni3 Toni Braxtons Pulse Pushed Back   Again

Toni Braxton‘s serially delayed LP ‘Pulse’ has been pushed back yet again. According to Amazon, the record, which was originally slated to hit stores  earlier last year, will now be released (provided it doesn’t get delayed again) on May 4th. The album will serve as Toni’s first release on new label Atlantic Records.

It’s quite sad to see Toni’s project being dealt blow after blow like this. While the reason for the delay is unknown, one thing that is a near certainty is that should she not drop a hit prior to the album’s release, it’ll likely be curtains for the whole album. After all, we’ve seen it time and time again; albums getting pushed back so much that when they do finally hit stores no one cares. Here’s hoping things work out for Ms. Braxton.

Randomness: I’d be lying if I said I was actually feeling much of the material I’ve heard from ‘Pulse’ thus far; however the brilliance that was her last album ‘Libra’ has me optimistic that she can still serve up the hotness.

Your thoughts?

    You said you don’t know the reason for the pushback but you stated it in your statement. Yesterday is not a hit. It would be suicide to release this album when Mo, Tasia, Sade, Aggie, J-L all your favs are dropping albums around the same time.

    I just think that her time has passed. i hope she does well but unless she gets a hit and some high profile promo, she’ll just be a 1st tier Deborah Cox.

    i think libra was really overrated.

    not big on “yesterday” but i could see this project being really good.
    i’ve enjoyed most of the material leaked.

    Sad to hear what’s going with Toni”s latest project but truthfully speaking this project has no buzz and Toni”s buzz has been little to none since the beginning of the last decade during the heat era. Hopefully things smooth out.

    Well that’s the way the cookie crumbles these days. Gone are the days when you got a single and then EAGERLY anticipated the rest of the album. Now you announce a release date and then two weeks later the entire album leaks all over the net. Too many songs leaked….I also think it’s a shame that we complain soooo much the state of the music industry, yet when a consistent SOLID Veteran releases and album we don’t support it. SHAME. I’ll support Toni all the way, but the best thing for her to do is either get out and promote “Yesterday” or move on to the next single and promote that one! Yesterday has didn’t tank. It did well on Urban AC, she just needs that PUSH!

    Toni Braxton has sold 50 million WW , won numerous awards including 6 grammy’s.
    Rihanna will never be as amazing as Toni Braxton. NEVER! Rihanna is a puppet so don’t compare that alien, jughead b**** to Toni Braxton because shes a legend.
    Only reason she decided to pushback her album because the whole album leaked. Shes recording new tracks.

    For what it’s worth, it was always their plan to release two singles before the album dropped… unfortunately it sounds like a CYA before the flop move, but I just hope they push the next single. Yesterday ended up faring just about as well as Please did, and I worry that the next single will do no better than Trippin.

    I love Toni and the reason for the new date is the leaks, I bet shes recording new material because theres already like 16 leaks…and for who doesnt know, Yesterday wasnt just a hit, it was a international hit! (check tehcharts)! Rock out Toni

    I think, pushing back is best they can do…
    Album will flop hardly if there’re no hits…
    but all leaks from are not hits, but sometimes not bad songs

    referring to her to deborah cox is such a bad comparison, Toni has won grammies and even scored countless no.1′s. shes a true star that belongs in the realm of Janet, whitney, etc whereas miss cox is like a mya, christina milian etc…
    Toni needs a good hit and good promotion, the music entertainment sucks ass as no longer are real artists appreciated, its about who has the right game. so far Toni needs something big.
    but GO TONI.

    I cannot believe this !! the record label are really taking the piss with this release —
    how anyone can say they not feelin the tracks thus far!! have u got youtube!! Yesterday IS a Hit and will be an even bigger one in the UK when it eventually gets released (original not trey songz version) Im really pissed and feel sorry for Toni as this has been more or less ready since 2008!! I love the songs that ive heard from this album (Melt is just pure perfection and should have been the lead single back in 2008 when it was first leaked + Not a chance & I hate love – both amazing!!) I personally think that Music is general has lost its way (being able to download future singles from albums before they get an official release?? no one even notices when they do get released. Record labels seem to have forgotten how to do their jobs!! 1 – release a single 2 – follow it with an album and stick to one release date!!! SIMPLE. Im praying this gets a UK release, Yesterday will be huge here:)

    Yesterday is scheduled to be released in the UK on the 22nd Feb, It already has so much buzz over here I am amazed, I have kids 15 – 18 asking me (a major Toni fan) if I have heard Toni’s new track Yesterday and that it is brilliant! Bless them that they only are hearing of Toni now and not when she was at her high! lol

    But I have a feeling Yesterday will be big here as well as her follow up single Woman which comes out in May over here.
