The Braxton family still has the it factor. Their reality television show has pushed the entire family into the limelight, both Toni and the people's favorite Tamar have used it to influence their music careers.
Tamar owns the top position on this week chart. She kept the momentum going that she built from "Love And War" with the release of the new single "All The Way Home." The new track filled with relationship drama is suited for the backdrop of an episode of Love & Hip Hop. The frantic lyrics "Screaming out the road, got my head out of control/Cause I'm thinking about you all the way home" recreate feelings on past break-up to make-up situations.
In between the Braxton sisters, in the second slot, is veteran Eric Benet. The man knows how to make a ballad, even when artists are pushing to go Pop. "Runnin" is classic Eric Benet, two basic components tight harmonies and live instrumentation. The track is included on his latest album, The One.
Yes! Toni Braxton and Babyface are back together. The dynamic pair hit the recording studio to craft a duet album entitled 'Love, Marriage & Divorce.' The first cut they offer fans is "Hurt." The record slowly builds, opening with piano keys into a dramatic rhythm and chorus. Braxton and Babyface remind everybody on why they are a perfect match.
