New Song: Toni Braxton – ‘Get Loose’

Published: Tuesday 23rd Dec 2008 by Sam

We reported a few months back that R&B songstress Toni Braxton had signed a new deal with Atlantic Records and was set to drop her first single ‘Get Loose’ toward the end of the year. Indeed with just a few days to go before the year is out, the song has surfaced. Produced by Rodney ‘Darkchild’ Jerkins, the uptempo song unsurprisingly has a very Darkchild 2008 sound. By that I mean it has elements similar to cuts such Brandy’s ‘Right Here (Departed)’ and Beyonce’s ‘Scared of Lonely’.

As I type and listen to the song over again, I’m still on the fence about this one. It’s decent enough on first listen, however in terms of a ‘comeback’ single and chart prospects, just doesn’t really cut it for me. A grower? Perhaps. A miss? Perhaps. {Thanks Devonte!}

Hit or Miss?

    This sounds like something on the Disney Channel this doesn’t work for me as a comeback single at all Toni needs a ballad!

    Song is different, but its fun and I’m happy to hear new music from Toni. She’s experimenting. But none the less the chick has talent. So haters fall back.

    i am one of the biggest toni fans and in my eyes she can do nothing wrong. like previously stated this can be a hit or a miss. i personally think that melt (like an iceberg) should be the first single. that song is hot and i can get it in to that. i feel that this song is not really going to do well but i will support my boo no matter what single she puts out.

    I love Toni like a fat kid love cake, But this record is not one that will bring her back to pop dominance. But good luck Toni!!!

    It could be betta…she need to go back and work it out a little more. Hopefully this is not the finished track!

    I like the beat, but, I think she should go back to the drawing board on this one.

    Definitely a miss! And I’m surprised because Dark Child usually brings the heat. Not this time though.

    Knowing how diff his sound is nowadays, I’m not surprised that this was the outcome. It’s no HWME, but it’s good enough for a ‘comeback’ I suppose. As long as she stays true to herself like always, then I’ll be fine.
