Toni Braxton Spills On Secret Mariah Carey & Janet Jackson Collaborations

Published: Tuesday 20th Mar 2018 by Sam

Toni Braxton is strutting the promotional pavement for new album ‘Sex & Cigarettes’ – which drops this Friday.

During her press run, she lifted the lid on collaborations that were in the plans with fellow divas Mariah Carey and Janet Jackson.

Details below…

Speaking to Pride Source, the 50-year-old opened up about two occasions where duets with the legends were on the cards. Interestingly, in the case of Jackson, it was very recent:

Peep the excerpts:

Why did we get a Whitney and Mariah duet and never a Mariah and Toni duet?

You know, Mariah had reached out to me about doing a duet, but unfortunately, it was just before I knew the bankruptcy was gonna happen (Braxton filed for bankruptcy in 1998 and 2010), but no one in the world knew. So when she asked me about doing a song together, immediately I wanted to say yes, but I couldn’t because what was about to unfold.

Why aren’t you calling her right now?

I’m gonna have to do that. There was talk about of me and Janet doing a song together on this particular project, but she was pregnant. But my people had talked about it. “Perhaps you and Jan should do a song together.” But, hey, maybe me and Mariah. We were neighbors for a second, so I probably should’ve reached out to her then, but it’s never too late. You’re actually gonna spark me to maybe talk to her about doing a remix or something. That’s actually a really good idea.

************

The prospect of both collabs is oh so titillating – especially when considering that they aren’t out of the realm of possibility in the future.

More broadly, we’d love to see legends of their stature come together more often. As their talents and narratives compliment each another well.

Your thoughts?

    Mariah and Toni could do a more mature take on The Boy Is Mine concept….instead of fighting over the man, they can argue over who should take the two timing loser lol…here, you have him! But I’m here for it in any capacity dahhhling *Alexis Colby voice*

      Love the concept. That type of song would do well.

  4. Teflon Boy March 20, 2018

    Mariah and Toni would be hot duet, I’ve always thought so.., It sounds as though it’s not been a priority for Toni which is a shame. They shouldn’t wait too long, as no one knows what is around the corner. I would love to hear them pining for a lost love together.., not a Christmas tune or an inspirational tune. Whatever they do together should be s***.

    Im here for it….But Toni make sure you have some writing credit on the song so Mariah does not snatch your coins. Because you know Mariah will take writing Credits Quick!

    • MariahTheOne March 21, 2018

      Claude Mariah always WRITES the Songs, unlike some of y’alls fave who don’t even write a word yet take credit 🤷🏽‍♂️🤷🏽‍♂️

    • JOHNVIDAL March 21, 2018

      That´s because Mariah actually writes unlike a few thieves out there lol

  6. TY March 20, 2018

    MARIAH AND TONI WOULD BE HOT,

  7. Jackx March 20, 2018

    They should do a remix to Toni’s long as I live feat mariah that would be dope af

  8. Slick March 20, 2018

    Mariah and Toni, yes! Babyface needs/should to produce the track. A ballad would be perfect. They can remix it to an upbeat song later.

  9. DeanD March 20, 2018

    I’m here for a duet with Toni’s mumbles and Janet’s whispers!

    • SuzieQ March 20, 2018

      Please!
      I screamed so f*cking loud!!! YESSSSSSS!!!!

  10. Lmfao_Hoe March 20, 2018

    Omg I’m here for all of this but yo I always wanted Tevin Campbell and Mariah to duet in the 90s my gawd both voices would’ve been beautiful on a ballad. Tevin needs to make a comeback, he still vocally there 💯

    • Deyzz April 3, 2018

      I agree. His voice was so awesome for a young guy.

  11. eric March 20, 2018

    I wish I could spark her to record with Kenny Lattimore. Her voice would blend perfectfully with his; Mariah and Janet, hardly.

    • Deyzz April 3, 2018

      I agree with Kenny, Mariah or Keisha Cole, but not Janet. She can’t sing! How long can she sing her tunes??!

  12. justafan March 20, 2018

    I would love it if Mariah sang in her lower vibrato on the duet! Cuz she can go sultry low like Toni. Yessssss yess yess. Two legends

  13. David Victor Pavon March 20, 2018

    Janet Toni Mariah can sing a sensationanal song together.

  14. Olusheyi March 20, 2018

    I am do here for a Toni and Janet duets and a Toni and Mariah duet. Oh please let them happen

  15. JohnnyBlaze82 March 20, 2018

    I’m here for all 3 to do something together….a music collaboration, a tour, or even a movie with musical numbers. Mariah was gonna be in “For Colored Girls” with Janet but she got pregnant with dem babies…so Thandie Newton played her role.

  16. madbrax March 21, 2018

    Toni and Mariah would be everything.

  17. DanYiel Iman March 21, 2018

    I’m here for Toni Braxton!!

  18. angel keys March 22, 2018

    She nearly also had a collabo with AALIYAH and Left Eye, backing track and vocals had been laid down and ended up being two separate songs –

    Aaliyah – All I Need
    Toni Braxton – Give Me Some Feat Left Eye

    Bet you die hard R&B heads didn’t know about that one!

  19. angel keys March 22, 2018

    CORRECTION:-

    Aaliyah – Don’t Worry

    HELLO PEOPLE! I’M NOT SURE WHY YOU GUYS ARE NOT COMMENTING ON A JANET AND TONI COLLAB MORE THAN A DAMN MARIAH TONI COLLAB.

    TONI AND JANET BOTH MAKE S*** SONG AND HAVE AMAZING TONES.

    I’M HERE FOR A JANET AND TONI COLLAB 1ST BECAUSE THEY’RE GONNA GIVE ME SOMETHING S***.

    FOR SOME REASON I FEEL MARIAH WILL OUT SING TONI ON A SONG BUT A JANET AND TONI COLLAB THAT A PERFECT BLEND OF HARMONIES.

    • Deyzz April 4, 2018

      We want to hear singing. Not cooing!!! I miss the Anita Baker and Whitney days.
      This would be the next best tbing. Besides, Mariah does not have to over power Toni. She had duets in the past One Sweet Day, I’ll Be There, etc and she held back when she had to.
      Toni and Mariah would be real singing in my ears.

  21. Amanda D. April 5, 2018

    I can see a Janet/Toni duet!😊
