New Song: Toni Braxton – ‘Do It’

Published: Monday 6th Apr 2020 by Sam

Toni Braxton is back!

The R&B legend delivers a care package in the form of new single ‘Do It.’

A delicious slice of grown R&B, the track is the first offering from the GRAMMY winning icon since 2018 album ‘Sex & Cigarettes.’

Speaking on the song, Braxton said:

I wrote this song about a year ago when a friend was going through the struggles of trying to end a relationship that wasn’t good for her. We have all been through situations like this, when there is really nothing more to say, you know he’s not right and you just need to do what you need to do. There is also an element of hope in the song, that after you do what you need to do things will get better.
During these unprecedented times, make the most of your time indoors with some self-reflection. Now might be a good time to quarantine your heart as well in order to examine what it really needs.”​

What are you waiting for? Listen to new Toni below…

Simple, yet stunning.

The piano-led anthem makes for an engaging listen; Braxton’s butter-smooth baritone melts effortlessly over the stripped-back production as she belts lyrics of encouragement to move on from toxic matters of the heart.

Over three decades into her career, this songbird continues to hatch gems and we can’t wait for more of what’s to come.

    Great album track, maybe even promo single but lead single?

    • Danny Bey April 6, 2020

      Who said it’s a lead single? Could just be a song she’s releasing for the hell of it.

  5. Bluebird April 6, 2020

    SHE STAYS IN HER OWN LANE. AND FINALLY, YOU CAN UNDERSTAND HER LYRICS…VERY “HOW COULD AN ANGLE BREAK MY HEART:

  6. #TheTruth April 6, 2020

    Toni is one of my favorite voices.

    I’ve played out « Long as I live ».
    Her albums have been quite inconsistent to me but her voice makes it up when the material is so so.

    This song is beautiful, I hope we’l have a new album this year.

  8. Chileplease April 6, 2020

    This easily could fit on the Secrets album. That’s a good thing.

    And is that “friends” name start with a Ta- and end with a -mar. Tell us sis…

    Can NEVER get enough Toni! She has and always be up there as one of the best!

  10. Beylover April 6, 2020

    Love this song!

    Very mature song for Toni and has a relatable message for anyone who is in a TOXIC relationship with a significant other, friend, or family member!

    Great job Toni ??

  11. PinotNoir April 6, 2020

    Cool tune. Came 4 days too late. I ditched whoever needed to be let go and won’t be going back on my decision.

    Dear Sam – a woman Baritone? Never will exist. Toni is a full-lyric Mezzo-Soprano whose lows sit within the Contralto tessitura.

    • Will_xo April 6, 2020

      Thank you thought I was the only one that noticed that

  12. Gee April 6, 2020

    A/C Toni on the frontline. However this feels like more of an album cut, then the actual first single. But there is nothing wrong with some new Toni vibes.

  13. Cassie April 6, 2020

    So GREAT !! Toni Braxton did it again !!!

  14. JA_LA April 6, 2020

    I think this song is very timely when you think of people who may be stuck in quarantine with mentally, emotionally, and physically abusive partners.

  15. 2bad2bme April 6, 2020

    Now THIS is R&B. Not that fake trap infused mess I’m tired of hearing. Go Toni! ??????

    • Jeans April 6, 2020

    Way too short!! I want a 4-minute cut and a new 15-track album full of songs that aren’t all released before the album comes out! Throw in another tour too! lol
