I don’t think I’ve been this excited about a new music announcement than the announcement that I spotted from Toni Braxton, just a while ago. I just recently started following her on Instagram after playing some of her albums, one night, and spotted her talking about a new single release that was upcoming. A song called “Deadwood”.
Her last album was a duet album with Babyface and that really brought her back to the albums that I was actually playing, recently. I loved hearing the duet album. It was like a homecoming to hear her with Babyface on his type of sound. I could almost enter a corny little sentence here like I felt that I could breathe again…. Pun intended.
This time, she teamed up with other people and for a moment, during the intro of the song, I really thought “Deadwood”, combined with the cowboy head on her head, was going to reveal a country side of Toni that I never knew she had, but it only sticks with a slight influences before it releases it. As soon as the harmonies enter the song for the chorus, you already know that it’s Toni as Toni has always been. In fact, this song would lend itself very well for some cool remixes bringing it back to a sound like “You’re Making Me High”.
