Toni Braxton & Babyface Unveil ‘Love, Marriage & Divorce’ Album Cover

Toni Braxton and Babyface blend their A-star talents together for upcoming album ‘Love, Marriage & Divorce’.

Preceded by Urban radio hit ‘Hurt You’, the album -which is billed as a musical drama-saw its accompanying cover unwrapped earlier today.

Due on November 25th, the project marks the first time the pair have sung on a record together in over 20 years, and 13 since they collaborated in any capacity (on Braxton’s 2000 LP ‘The Heat’). Prior to the then, the duo cooked up chart landmarks such as ‘Breathe Again’ and ‘You’re Making Me High’.

Speaking to ESSENCE, Toni said of their new album:

“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”.

********

Having heard a sizeable amount of the album, we’re oh so amped for the full course. Fans of the pair will be elated to note that the project isn’t the standard run-of-the-mill duet LP. It’s a qualitative, sonically rich, and a stellar addition to their respective catalogues. Very grown and sexy. We can’t get enough of a track titled ‘Steam’. Remember where you read that first!

Toni Braxton Teases New Music; Due September

Toni Braxton shocked the music world earlier this year after revealing her plans to retire.

At the time, it appeared the wear-and-tear of 20-year career had taken its toll on the Grammy-winning diva.

However, it seems the ‘Unbreak My Heart’ singer has had a change of mind – much to the delight of her legion of loyal fans. For, today saw the mother of two tease a new collaborative project with fellow R&B icon Babyface.

Taking to all of her social media accounts, the soulful contralto wrote:

Coming this September…
Find out more on tonight’s brand new episode of Braxton Family Values tonight at 9/8 C on WE tv!

Word has it the pair, whose hits include ‘Breathe Again’ and ‘You’re Making Me High’, have conjured up a Motown flavoured duet album – which is literally music to our ears.

Here’s hoping it serves as the springboard needed for Ms. Braxton to continue recording. She’s too legendary and her talent is too intact to let sales or politics stop her sharing her gift!

Keep it locked on That Grape Juice for the full tea once its poured.

TGJ Replay: “Waiting To Exhale” Soundtrack (Whitney Houston, Mary J. Blige)

Much like our ‘Retro Rewind’ and ‘From the Vault’ segments, readers of That Grape Juice know what avid music lovers we are – especially of hits past.  So in a quest to re-spin the gems and jams of yesterday we introduced a new retrospective segment – ‘TGJ Replay’.
