New Song: Toni Braxton & Babyface – ‘Hurt You’

R&B legends Toni Braxton and Babyface have teamed up again, mixing and meshing their iconic talents for a new Motown flavoured album.

Having cooked up prior hits together in a artist-producer context (see: ‘You’re Making Me High’ ‘Breathe Again’), the pair’s new project is a duet affair

Originally due on Monday, the LP’s lead single, the stirring ‘Hurt You’, received its premiere via Foxy 107.1 moments ago. That Grape Juice has you covered, though. Take a listen below…


Vocally rich and sonically stellar, the haunting track relays a negative narrative in a way that ironically demands many a replay. Put simply, it’s a winner! If there’s any justice in the world, this’ll be embraced by Urban radio – or, at the very least, its Adult Contemporary strand.

While some artists’ talents age like milk, Ms. Braxton and Babyface prove themselves a fine wine, getting better with time.

    It is so inspiring to see them put their differences aside and make AMAZING music. I’m glad Toni and Babyface have put the LaFace drama behind them. Positive thinking, love it.

    Well said, this is absolutely sublime! So glad Toni is returning to her roots, this style of music is where she shines most. I always felt like out of all the “super divas” she was the most soulful and capable of bringing that into mainstream. That’s what makes her so special.

    Bring on this album plz!

    I love a good ballad but this a complete snore. It will not do anything to revive their career or help with the Chapter 11 bankruptcy.

      STONY says:

      totally agree with you this one is weak as hell a ballad need to be strong like halo of beyonce or stay by rihanna that’s the kind of ballad which tops the charts something deepwith a catchy melody

      You are really stretching, because Toni she is neither bankrupt nor is in need of a career revival. She has been there ,done that, and still doing. Good job Toni and Babyface, you are speaking to your fan base!

      I think it could have been better had she vocally given us thunder, she took it too easy.

    Im a huge Babyface fan and I enjoy the classics from Toni as well but this is just okay, sorry guys. I was expecting it to sound like the waiting to exhale soundtrack for some reason. I think she may have some big comeback shoes to fill against her sisters song “Love and War” cause that’s been the best ballet to me in the past year.

      Real says:

      Does everything boil down to charts with you people? You silly ass 90’s babies haven’t lived long enough to know that music is supposed to be enjoyed by the listener, it’s not supposed to be seen as some competing dog in some chart race. It’s the record companies job to fret over things like charts and sales. Just listen to the damn song and not concern yourself with where it lands on the Hot 100.

        RINA says:

        b**** i was born in 1987! ok! secondly i am thinking about toni and she needs a hit badly!! the song is ok but it wont give her career the push it badly needs!!

      Crystal Brown says:

      You all do not really know what music is all about. Toni is speaking to her fan base , she is not into popularity that last for 2 weeks and ppl forget about it. It is all about storytelling …

    I like it, the song is nice, Toni´s voice is like fine wine and… well Babyface was not good in this, his voice doesn´t sound good, like altered or something.
