"He Wasn't Man Enough" is a bop. I like her voice. But that mumble-mouth thing she does is wearing.

She's fantastic. "Give U My Heart". "Another Sad Love Song" that entire first record, "You're Makin' Me High". All classics.

This is intentional. Babyface instructed her to sing like she's got water stuck in her mouth.

Loved "Hurt You" on their latest collab record some years back... other tracks I've heard from it sounded solid as wel.

Why is your meme cropped?

Look, Babyface mentions it again with Toni standing next to him at 3:00. He corrects her for inunciating too well:

The debut record. Among Race's best and most cohesive work.

I just love their chemistry so much love2 Babyface said in Questlove Supreme's podcast that they always got into loud arguments, it makes perfect sense why they have such a brother/sister relationship, the earlier footage where she was improvising with him was so moving, thanks for sharing that.

Haven't really payed much attention to her most recent music. Secrets is my
favorite album by her. I have to check out Sex And Cigarettes. I know she has a new song floating around but haven't really dialed in on it. I barely remember that awful song she did with Trey Songz several years ago. ill
Don't laugh at my funk
This funk is a serious joint

Heat & Toni Braxton will always be my favorites. Love, Marriage, and Divorce too though technically that was a duet album.

Toni Braxtion - Always (Written By Brandy Norwood)

https://www.youtube.com/w...opCvUgFwJk

Brandy on Toni Braxton’s “Always”

“Always” is a song on Braxton’s fifth full-length studio album, More Than a Woman. Though the album was released in November 2002, the recording process for the album took a year, beginning sometime in 2001.

Braxton worked with several writers and producers on the album, including her younger sister Tamar who penned six songs and contributed background vocals to all 12 songs. She also worked with Irv Gotti and The Neptunes.

Rodney “Darkchild” Jenkins and his protégée Robert “Big Bert” Smith wrote and produced “Always.” At the time, Big Bert was also working on Brandy’s third full-length studio album Full Moon and was dating Brandy. Brandy has writing credits on “Always” and also sings background on the track.

Not many albums on Earth come close to her self-titled debut.

I remember watching a DVD of Toni Braxton videos, followed by Destiny's Child. The difference in quality is staggering.
