Album Snippets: Toni Braxton & Babyface – ‘Love, Marriage, & Divorce’

Published: Friday 24th Jan 2014 by Sam

February 4th is quite literally around the corner, as such so too is the release of Toni Braxton and Babyface‘s new concept album ‘Love, Marriage, & Divorce’.

The hotly anticipated set sees the frequent collaborators join together for a body of work that critics are already hailing as stellar.

Ahead of the project’s roll-out, the LP has made available for preview. So what are you waiting for? Take a listen below…

 on iTunes!

Yes, yes, and yes!

It has been approximately forever since a through and through R&B album has served up such consistency, such quality. What a solid set of “grown and sexy” cuts, all of which are tied together with a well-executed concept.

Having heard and loved much of the LP in full already, the snippets have us salivating at the prospect of the complete package.

Roll on February 4th!

Tidbit: ‘Sweat’ needs to be a single.

  2. BeyIsKing January 24, 2014

  3. FutureCIARA January 24, 2014

    I really dont want Toni to flop anymore! I hope not with this project.

    Its almost inevitable though.

  4. FutureCIARA January 24, 2014


    Hey Cuunt, Its been a minute since Ive seen you here!

  5. *ℙᏫℙ ℝᏫᎩAℒᎿᎩ* January 24, 2014

    I Will Buy It. 😀

  6. *ℙᏫℙ ℝᏫᎩAℒᎿᎩ* January 24, 2014

    I think I need “Heart Attack” In My Life Now, It sounds So Gooood. 😀

    I want it as a Single With a Cool Music Video.

  7. BeyIsKing January 24, 2014

    @FutureCiara lol I’m back

  8. Carlitos January 24, 2014

    OMFG! Words cannot express my LOVE for this project. These songs sound AMAZING. These two are brilliant together. Toni’s voice is unmatchable. And PS, I agree with you @*Pop Royalty*, “Heart Attack” is SO GOOD. It needs to be the next single, seriously. A cool and fresh video is what it needs. It actually kinda sounds like Robin Thicke meets Pharrel Williams. I digggg.

  9. Carlitos January 24, 2014

    Are you talking about Toni? Please, don’t degrade her as if she’s not worthy. She’s a LEGEND. R.E.S.P.E.C.T.

  10. RoyalKev January 24, 2014

    Nice! Toni’s voice is so dreamy! I definitely love Toni on I Wish & Face on I Hope That You’re Okay.

    … But I hope the next singles are:

    #1 Heart Attack (R&B/main chart crossover/Dance)
    #2 I Rather Be Broke (R&B/main chart crossover)
    #3 Reunited (Adult Contemp.)

    & yes, in that order! Please!
    I wish them luck, I’ll be supporting this!

  11. fredrick January 24, 2014

    Nice snippets…this must be a great album…my fav are 1.Rollercoaster 2.Heart Attack..

  12. Absolved January 24, 2014

    I like Toni and I like Babyface, but I hate duos and duet collaboration albums. I’ll need to be really wowed to get into this.

  13. casandra shue January 24, 2014

    This is an awesome album guys, good job. Some of these people talking about flop, does not even understand that quality will outweigh popularity forever. @futureciara LOL at you talking about flop, Google Toni and Babyface discography and respect, they don’t chase after trend!

  14. TRUTH SERUM January 24, 2014

    I Rather Be Broke…. NEEDS TO BE THE NEXT SINGLE…

    Its Toni’s strongest song/potential single in YEARS…

    And I think “I wish” is GREAT! It gives me the 90s Toni on it…

  15. *ℙᏫℙ ℝᏫᎩAℒᎿᎩ* January 24, 2014


    IKR?!!! We All Need This Song RIGHT NOW.

    in Addition, I Will love it more if “Take it Back” get a proper Release as a Single In valentine’s Day maybe, This Album has potential. 😀

  16. Mr. CEE January 24, 2014

    For those of us on here that actually KNOW R&B music and not here to STAN and talk ish, THIS people is why Babyface is the legend producer he is and Toni is the R&B legend she is. SOLID, EXCELLENT album!


  17. Harper January 24, 2014

    Ciara stans are always throwing around the word “FLOP” . Toni and Babyface are LEGENDS, something Ciara will never be. Now that we’ve gotten that outta the way, this sounds like a promising project full of real love music!

  18. LMFAO_HOE January 24, 2014

    Yessssss !!!!!! Jesus is so good. Toni and Baby Face have created an instant CLASSIC. This album is straight R&B something that has been missing since the 90s and early 00s. Toni sounds so refreshing and full of life including Baby. Can’t help but wait to purchase this. RATED 9/10 aa a body of full QUALITY MUSIC need recognition and most definitely ACCLAIM.

  19. DOSSOME January 24, 2014

    I’m definitely buying this…HEART ATTACK>>>>>>>

  20. Stephy Tha Lambily January 24, 2014

    Is Toni Braxton a legend?

  21. Stephy Tha Lambily January 24, 2014

    This “LEGEND” word is getting thrown around way too much.

    Honestly, I really don’t even consider Mariah Carey a legend.

    Legends are Quincy Jones, Aretha Franklin & Michael Jackson…

  22. Molly January 24, 2014

    I agree with @Stephy since when was Toni a legend? Mariah is a true legend Stephy you should know that.

  23. Molly January 24, 2014

    Never been a fan of Toni sorry.

  24. Stephy Tha Lambily January 24, 2014


    I agree, after looking at all Mariah’s success. It does make her a legend.

    But what makes Toni Braxton a legend?

  25. anonymous January 24, 2014

    I cant wait Toni. I will be purchasing your album. my favorite toni songs include Love shouldve brought you home, Unbreak my heart, breathe again, He wasnt man enough, and I love me some him.

  26. anonymous January 24, 2014

    @Beyisking um no b**** its you who needs to sit down. go back to licking Beyonce’s ass crack. Im ready for this album because I wanna hear a classic REAL R&B music, not ratchet drunk in love rubbish, Dont get me wrong I like Bey, but Im ready for a classic r&b album which Toni and Babyface will deliver.

  27. T.hay January 24, 2014

    This is what real R&B is from 2 amazing artist! I will be buying this album! Support real music February 4th

  28. eric January 24, 2014

    Authentic, classic r&b sound!!

  29. Slayretha Franklin January 24, 2014


    I agree. Toni is a diva but not legendary. She does not have the longevity.

  30. LMFAO_HOE January 24, 2014

    Quit with that bs not a Legend all the faves ya stand for couldn’t stand aside Toni PERIOD. Theres been so many underrated talented artist (Brandy, Monica, Tamia, JoJo, Janelle and Amerie)ect!! never seen shine cause they don’t need to chase after the FAME & ATTENTION when thier already on top of thier Game. Thats the problem with ya asses, b****** cheering over popularity but not quality with no damn talents to back it up. S*** anybody can become a singer theses days long as they have AUTOTONE but let’em get on stage Lord Jeus EPIC FAIL

  31. what? January 24, 2014

    Does it really matter whetehr she’s considered a legend or not. the point is she’s a great singer and makes great music. she even plays the piano so shes multitalented. Im hoping she doesnt flop, but even if her album doesnt sale well, at least she has other successful albums from the past. 3 multiplatinum albums, and 2 gold albums. Her first 2 sold 10 million and 15 million worldwide.

  32. Carlitos January 24, 2014


    Are we SERIOUSLY going to get into this? I’m not even going to waste my Friday afternoon trying to give y’all a Toni Braxton 101. I’m going to leave it as this: Toni Braxton has influenced other female artists such as Kelly Clarkson, Britney Spears, JoJo, Keri Hilson, etc. When people start looking up to you, that’s when you know you’re at the legendary level.

  33. Carlitos January 24, 2014

    Not to mention that she has collectively sold over 66 million albums worldwide. She has won 6 Grammys, 5 AMAs and 9 BMAs. Also, she has starred in Broadway TWICE, headlined her own successful, sold out Las Vegas show for two years, starred in Dancing With The Stars, and is currently has a hit reality TV show.

  34. Erik January 24, 2014

    What makes Toni Braxton a legend? Hmm let me see, it could be the 66 million albums shes sold, or the fact that she has the 2nd highest selling single by a female artist in history under her belt. It could be she is the 1st and only African-American female to have a top 10 las vegas show. Maybe its becaause she was the first African-American female to have a non African-American role on broadway. Or it could be because she has the most top 10 hits by a female artist on the billboard UAC chart. The 6 Grammys, 7 AMA’s, 8 billboard music awards and countless others…People can say what they want but truth is, Toni Braxton changed the face of the music industry and mayed it possible for beyonce, rihanna, ciara and all these other new chicks to do what they do. Its a pity people don’t give Toni her dues…people fail to realize that because Toni Braxton went bankrupt and sued Arista records cotract laws were changed and made it possible for new artists to actually get paid. And Fyi she definitely has longevity, over 20 noted years in the industry and shes still giving #1 hits…after battling lupus, divorce, heart disease and raising an autistic child, she is still talented, courageous, humble, beautiful, and one of the strongest woman in the world…Toni Braxton is definitely Legendary.

  35. Carlitos January 24, 2014


    OMG…I think I’m in LOVE with you. You couldn’t have said it any better. Atta boy!

  36. Carlitos January 24, 2014


    OMG…I think I’m in LOVE with you. I couldn’t have said it any better. Atta boy!

  37. T.t January 24, 2014

    Thank you you better say that people need to focus on the music and talent this right here is real R&B with real lyrical content something that is missing in music today!

  38. cocobutta January 25, 2014

    Don’t know how much I’ll love it overall but these are Royalty artist in the R&B genre so it’s a must have for me on their names alone.

    Defo a purchase for my catalogue of R&B music.

  39. Sundayluv January 30, 2014

    ROLLERCOASTER so far… I listened yet but all the singles they’ve dropped were better then the previous! I already pre-purchased the album. Toni is always a great investment. Radio needs a change!

  40. Sundayluv January 30, 2014

    Please let’s not fight over status. Its all about the music! That’s why R&B is suffering. We are too busy fighting over who is the best. Their success is not ours so what difference does it make? Just enjoy the music that is the gift.

  41. Sundayluv February 4, 2014

    Toni is superwoman a true definition of a strong black woman. The average woman would be applauded for the storms Toni has weathered but since she is a celebrity people try to look down on her because of the bankruptcy. R&B is th only genre to write their artist off or throw them away as has been. So sad I am happy for Toni and remember when she won those Grammys. A time when most artists would be thrilled to have one or to just be nominated. I feel like if you are younger then 30 then you just don’t know music.

    China’s banking system is healthy and risks are within control despite last year’s explosive growth in credit, he said at a financial forum in Hong Kong yesterday.
