Babyface & Toni Braxton Eye Hit With ‘Hurt You’

Published: Wednesday 28th Aug 2013 by David

September 3rd may mark the release of Tamar Braxton‘s new studio album, ‘Love & War’, but it seems her far more seasoned sister Toni is on course to scoring a new chart win of her very own.

How, you ask?

Meet us below for good news…

In its first week of release, Braxton’s new single ‘Hurt You‘ (a collaborative effort with Babyface) speeds to #17 on Billboard’s Adult R&B airplay chart, marking the singer’s 23rd appearance on the chart and Baby’s 21st.

Reaching an audience of 2.2 million radio listeners in its launch week, the number enjoyed airplay every hour on the hour on Adult charts on August 19th, months before the December 3rd release of the pair’s new album ‘Love, Marriage, Divorce’, the follow up to her 2010 effort ‘Pulse’.

To date, Braxton can boast of six solo albums. The first of which, ‘Toni Braxton‘ has now been certified 8x Platinum in the US for shipments of 8 million units- enjoying a US peak position of #1 upon its July 13th 1993 release.

      Hi! If you are single and seeking serious relationship, I suggest that you should try on — Rìchfìshёs.οrg— the largest successful singles and admires club with 2,000,000 members, maybe you will meet one near or in your city and the customer service will manually block scammers there, it’s worth a try!

    B**** PLEASE!!!

    Toni Bankrupt’s last ‘hit’ was 14 years ago; 1999, therefore, it isn’t going to happen in 2013.


    • Cassandra Chue August 28, 2013

      Soooooooooooooo delusional. Toni has hits for days, therefore she has nothing to prove. Also remember HATERS never reach far in life.

    unless it tops the hot 100 or the hiphop/rnb chart……who cares?? toni hasnt had a hit since he wasnt man enough in 2000. she has good music but she needs a hit or she will just flop AGAIN!!

    more than a woman……FLOP

    and i thought ciara was the only triple flop LOL!!

    • Liam August 28, 2013

      More Than A Woman and Libra both certified Gold…only Pulse was the album of hers not to be certified…..SMH

      • TINA JONES August 28, 2013

        @ liam

        and you think a gold certification for toni braxton albums that came out before 2006 is good??? smh. toni even says on behind the music that more than a woman flopped badly……get it together hon.

    • Ceejayye August 29, 2013

      @Tina Jones ; The only reason that these albums ” flopped” is because she was diagnosed with Lupus and was told by her doctor that it wasn’t safe for her to perform. She feels better now and thinks that she is strong enough to tour again , this is just one of many hits to come from Miss Toni Braxton 🙂

      • TINA JONES August 29, 2013

        was it unsafe to perform when she went on dancing with the stars???

    • Cassandra Chue August 30, 2013

      Yes, Tina the doctors (except 1) thought it was unsafe. Know someone story before you talk things you obviously do not know nothing about. You haters can never stop the blessing !

      • TINA JONES August 30, 2013

        wow ok so assuming that is even true…….that means she would rather go on dancing with the stars but the same risk cant be made to promote her music to her fans??? LOL!! and this is the b**** you stan for! WOW!!!

    • Crystal Brown September 2, 2013

      Yes Tina I STAN for someone with common sense! DWTS is in one location, promoting an album is traveling to various places and very hard on someone with lupus and blood clot . Toni has nothing to prove, been there done that and still doing. True talents cannot be suppressed dear, it does not matter how hard you try with your negativity.

      • TINA JONES September 4, 2013

        but her vegas residency was in one place and she quit that…….waiting for next excuse.

    • JOSH September 16, 2013

      Tina, Toni had to quit the vegas show because she did not know she had Lupus and was performing 6 nights a week, running her body down, and had a massive heart attack. Was told by doctors she would NEVER be alble to perform live again. She has since not been able to promote her work which is one of the reasons she wanted to retire. She has not been able to tour and their are times when her doctors will not allow her on an airplane. She is under the care of doctors who are treating her with steroids. From one human being to another I just think your comment is shameful and not positive or uplifting, or accurate in any way shape or form.

      • geno September 20, 2013

        excuses and lies…..u must be her publicist…

    • Crystal Brown October 3, 2013

      @Geno NO, we are actually aware of what is going. We don’t stay in holes like you and only crawl out to comment negatively. Toni was on every health show and network taking about Lupus and autism, you really need to get with the times. BTW she don’t need no excuses, bec. she got NOTHING to prove, she is just doing what she love.

    Love this song

  8. LeBeast August 28, 2013

    Awesome duo! I will always love Toni. Forever.

  9. Teflon Boy August 28, 2013

    Love this, such a grower!

  10. Kingbrenan August 30, 2013

    You can’t compare Ciara to Toni.
    Toni is a legend and Ciara is just…Ciara.
    Not to mention, Toni has won 6 Grammys and sold over 60 million world wide.
