R&B veterans Toni Braxton and Babyface continue to show the rookies how its done with an onslaught of live performances of their new joint hit ‘Hurt You’.

Already blazing ‘The Tonight Show’ and ‘Arsenio Hall’, the duo were most recently spotted at ABC’s ‘The View’ lending a stirring live rendition of the reunion single from the duets album ‘Love, Marriage, and Divorce’ (Feb. 4).

Braxton also played co-host on the ladies’ panel as the twosome were also greeted with news that the tune had reached #1 on Billboard.

Via Billboard:

Toni Braxton and Babyface each end lengthy absences from the top of Billboard’s Nielsen BDS-based Adult R&B radio airplay chart, as their duet ‘Hurt You’ steps 2-1.

The song is Braxton’s first chart-topper since “Just Be a Man About It” led for two weeks in 2000, while Babyface hadn’t reached the summit since “Every Time I Close My Eyes” resided at the apex for two weeks in 1997. “Hurt” is Braxton’s seventh No. 1 on the ranking and Babyface’s fifth.”

The chart ascension ends the lengthy 17-week reign of Robin Thicke‘s blockbuster tune ‘Blurred Lines’.

    Are you even listening to the radio, it obvious you are not, because this song pays daily. Twitter had it all day, plus billboard, so I don’t know where you have been
