New Video: Toni Braxton – ‘Hands Tied’

Published: Wednesday 14th Apr 2010 by Sam

The video for the second of Toni Braxton‘s new singles, ‘Hands Tied’, premièred literally moments ago. Check out the Billie Woodruff directed clip below…

Stunning! Besides the fact, Ms. Braxton, at 42, is giving performers half her age a run for their money (“eh eh eh”), it’s refreshing to see a video in this day and age which actually put the funds spent on it to good use. Classy, glossy, and cinematic, Toni knocked it out of the park with this one. The song is one of her best offerings in a while too. I love it all!

‘Hands Tied’ is lifted from Braxton’s latest LP ‘Pulse’, which is due out on May 4th via Atlantic Records.

    I loved Toni Braxton in the 90’s her music was awesome but Im not feeling this song or this video. She still sounds awesome though the song is just boring to me.

  14. wtf April 14, 2010

    I love this song!!…..been singing it for months now..didnt know she was making a video for it

  15. geronimo April 14, 2010

    AMAZING…. go toni go

    people will always hate …. comparing you to rihanna is an insult, wtf people.

  16. JJFan1814 April 14, 2010

    that album won’t push 150k debut week

  17. Didnt See The Signs April 14, 2010

    why do you have to mention allude to Rihanna in this post. You are a very disgusting blogger

  18. geronimo April 14, 2010

    go toni

  19. geronimo April 14, 2010

    @ erin chenault
    is that you, on your avatar? very handsome, r u available?

  20. Carlitos April 14, 2010

    why do people hate so much? really though. you waste your time typing a message to stir up controversy. well, it doesn’t work. not with this woman. she’s been through hell and back and she’s still in the game. your non-purchase in her album is a appreciated. only true fans deserve the right to listen to her. btw, 150k sales in the first week is a lot. really. whitney didn’t even do that. so…keep hatin’. as she makes her music and videos, you’ll still be at home on the computer just typing hatred comments. such a waste of s**** and egg.

  21. Nari April 14, 2010

    Haven’t seen an elegant & s*** video of this stature since En Vogue. This is how grown folks do it. Great job Toni B.

  22. Rashad April 14, 2010

    Actually Carlitos, with all due respect, whitney did over twice as much. She did 305k in her first week. This video is good and the song is good..but nothing about them are great. Nothing screams HITS. It’s just something to make toni a little more relevant. The unfortunate truth is, considering how much RnB is struggling right now..she needed to come a little harder than this. But ima supporter and wish her the best

  23. Aunt Jackie April 14, 2010

    It’s alright, prefer her older material.

    Video is simply & S***!

  24. Jai Brandon April 14, 2010

    Love it! I ignore the haters. They have no lives and I feel sorry for them. Anyway Go Toni! Looks amazing! She will do 250K first week.

  25. cafflo April 14, 2010

    The production of this song reminds me of Superhuman by Chris Brown. Anyway song is kool video is kool nothing to go wow for tho. Doesn’t really get me excited for Ms. Braxton but best of luck to her.

  26. TEDDY_RUGSBY April 14, 2010

    @JJFAN1814 YEAH BECAUSE JANET JACKSON LAST 3 ALBUMS DID ANYTHING…..20.YO FLOP…… DAMITA JO……FLOP……….DISCIPLINE….FLOP…..BYTCH YOU FAILL……NEXT

  27. Gucci April 14, 2010

    You can eh eh eh all you want Samantha but Toni clearly jacked her hairstyle! Obviously she doing something right. Keep throwing shade…. But isn’t it funny that everyone you support is a flop, and everyone you hate is shitting on you.
    BLOG FAIL. Two pink flamingo queens with an opinion that doesn’t change anything.

    With that said. I DO LOVE this song. Toni gave me what i wanted…a major improvement from that garbage that y’all were cheering about yesterday. The only thing I’m hung up on is her new image. I don’t understand why the haircut and edgy attire was necessary for Toni. It’s like she’s trying to keep up with the times, but we would have loved Toni just the way she was….like the way we love Sade. The Rihanna Knockoff hair was so not necessary..
    Still love you Toni but please never try to dance again

  28. jweezy April 14, 2010

    @teddy damita jo did not flop. how does debuting with 300,000+ a flop andgoing platinum especially after the superbowl.

  29. Lorenzo April 14, 2010

    Now that’s the toni i remember!

  30. Tami April 14, 2010

    Toni I love you, your a gorgeous women but get back to the music too much posing and skimpy outfits and lack of quality lyrics. This song is awful the video I kept watching because I liked the outfits

  31. keith April 14, 2010

    Billie Woodruff has done a great job with both of these videos! These are two of my favorites from the “Pulse” sessions.

    Watching the video, all I could think was that “Marcus” better get his ass back home to “Angela” before she comes and ruins the song, lol……

    Jokes aside, love this video also. Makes me like the song a little more and contrary to the opinion of some fans I think she jacks the Rhianna look quite well.

  32. Ben April 14, 2010

    I like this one better. Song is decent. Video is kinda like a modern Flashdance, but I like the personality she brings to the table here.

  33. trina b April 14, 2010

    The best parts of the video were the men and Toni’s vocals. She is stunning. Thanks Toni for putting Victor Webster in the video. That man makes my blood boil and ergo make this video ipod worthy. I will download!

  36. boom.boom.PAW! April 14, 2010

    @GUCCI
    Oh please! Eh, Eh, Eh, totally JACKED Kelis’ style. Don’t act like Big head ass Rihanna is a trendsetter, when CLEARLY Kelis is the creator of Rihanna’s look.

  37. Fritzma April 14, 2010

    Glad you are Baaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaack Toni, Big Time..Love you big time..Hands tied Video is off the chain..

  38. DorianF April 14, 2010

    Toni absolutely DID this video! I’m glad that she is back givin these “artists” a run for their money. The outfits looked great and she looked even better!

    Great Song + Great Video = Success!

    Hopefully it does well on the charts.

  39. hello April 14, 2010

    She looks hot. Hope her song does well on the charts!!!

  40. Miss M Carey April 14, 2010

    Toni deserves it…….I wish her luck 🙂

  41. SOOS April 15, 2010

    Oh it is absolutely anti-feministic.

    Associations of conservative American parents will bann this video (and I think they are right). That moment when the married man took away his ring was disgusting.

    I was waiting during the whol video that by the end there wouldn’t be a moral message, but wasn’t.

    It’s about: being a b**** is cool, cheat your wife/husband is good, disgusting video I think.
    I am liberal, but this is ultraliberal, and I hate it.

  42. Richard April 15, 2010

    Gorgeous video and great song!

  43. Joey April 15, 2010
