‘Deadwood’: Toni Braxton Makes Her Triumphant Return To Form!

Un-Break My Heart,” and tell me the rumors are true: Toni Braxton is indeed back. Officially!

The R&B veteran comes back to life with “Deadwood,” the lead single off her forthcoming eighth album Sex & Cigarettes. Due in the coming months, Sex & Cigarettes is the Toni‘s first body of solo work in over seven years. In 2014, Toni teamed up with Babyface and released their collaborative album Love, Marriage & Divorce, which actually won the Grammy for Best R&B Album at the 57th Annual Grammy Awards.

So after 3 years of silence on the music front, Toni finally comes back to us with “Deadwood,” a gorgeous guitar-led affair that proves that her distinct tone has lost none of its brilliance. The production by Fred Ball serves as a slick, polished backdrop driving the song’s story about heartbreak to dynamic heights. “Just want to let you know/ I won’t let this one go/ You got me down, but I ain’t out,” she croons. “Think you got me good/ Left me like some deadwood/ I may be down, but I’ll turn around.”

It’s classic signature Toni at her very best. Welcome back, mama!

Toni Braxton’s new single “Deadwood” is also available on Apple Music and Spotify now!
