From The Vault: Toni Braxton – ‘Another Sad Love Song’

Published: Sunday 10th Oct 2021 by Joe

From The Vault journeys back to the year 1993, when a then up-and-coming artist was starting out a promising career.
Today’s pick is ‘Another Sad Love Song’ by the mighty Toni Braxton.

The launching single from her eponymous debut, ‘Song’ was written and produced by Braxton’s OG collaborators Babyface and L.A. Reid, and was anything but just another run-of-the-mill love song. Describing how every tune heard on the radio would remind her of a former partner, the track became Toni’s first Top 10 and peaked at #2 on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs Chart.

Multiple videos were shot for the song.

A black-and-white incarnation depicted the singer performing Broadway-style on an empty stage while another version saw her lamenting in the street under the rain.

In both versions she can be seen rocking the iconic short hair-do that still looks fantastic on her nowadays, we must say.


A talent like Toni is one-of-a-kind, and the fact that – in over three decades – no one has been touted as “the new Toni Braxton” is a testament to that. Furthermore, it’s fantastic that Toni is still regarded by the industry as one of the best to ever do it.

We, for one, can’t wait to enjoy what more the 54-years-young diva has in store for us, especially after serving us with quality new jams such as ‘Long As I Live’ in more recent times.

Toni Braxton, we salute you for consistently serving brilliance.
