New York, NY (Top40 Charts)
A new Toni Braxton
album is on the horizon. In a recent sit down with The Insider, the R&B/Soul legend says her new project, 'Sex & Cigarettes,' will arrive early 2018 and that it will be for the grown and sexy.
"I'm excited; it's been awhile. The last project I did was me and Babyface," Braxton says. "The new album comes out at the top of the year, and it's called 'Sex & Cigarettes.' I feel like I'm older; I wanna say what I feel, I don't wanna be censored."
She recently filmed the steamy video for the first single, "Deadwood," which will be her first to carry a parental advisory sticker, adding to the project's mature content. "There is this guy in the video who's super sexy," said Braxton. "I think we're going to be seeing a lot of him. He's great eye candy."
Braxton, who wrapped her starring role in the Lifetime movie Faith Under Fire, hasn't released a solo album since 2010's Pulse. However, she hasn't been completely gone from the music scene. In 2014, she teamed up with Babyface
for Love, Marriage & Divorce and the following year, she was part of Braxton Family Christmas.
Toni isn't the only Braxton with new music on the way. Her sister Tamar
is also prepping her new album Bluebird of Happiness, which is set for a Sept. 29 release.
