Exclusive: Toni Braxton & Babyface Talk ‘Love, Marriage & Divorce,’ Broadway’s ‘After Midnight’, Possible Standards Album?


Toni Braxton and Babyface have struck a cord with their passionate collaborative project Love, Marriage & Divorce.  The new album from the long-time friends has spawned the No. 1 single “Hurt You,” and received critical acclaim from critics and fans alike.  While an official tour is in the works, fans can currently catch Toni and Kenny on stage in the thriving Broadway show ‘After Midnight.’

The hit musical, combines the big-band songs of Duke Ellington and high energy dancing of the roaring ’20s, to revive the era of Harlem’s legendary Cotton Club. On March 18 Toni and Babyface made their debut as the show’s special guest performers, and you can catch them in the show until March 30.

Last week, ThisisRnB TV caught up with the R&B legends for an interview to discuss their roles in ‘After Midnight,’ and of course we had to ask them about their new album as well. While talking about the project we got to hear their feelings about Toni’s now infamous line in “I Wish” where she sweetly sings, “I hope she gives you a disease, so you will see, but not enough to make you die, but only make you cry, like you did to me.” (Yikes!)

Babyface revealed to us that he thinks Toni should record a standards album next, and he would be glad to work on it with another producer like David Foster. Toni was happy to hear that and said now it’s on record, she’s going to hold him to it!

Check out the interview above… You can pick up Love, Marriage & Divorce on iTunes now, and order tickets for ‘After Midnighthere.
