Toni Braxton has no plans in giving up her first love, even though she revealed back in February (2013) that her "heart isn't in it anymore."
With a little convincing from good friend and collaborator Kenneth 'babyface' Edmonds, the R&B diva is now heavily focused on the craft that made her a world-renowned superstar.
“I was going to retire because I was thinking about my career. So he (Babyface) told me you can't think about that, you have to go back to being an artist and performing and loving your artistry,” Braxton tells theGrio.com.
She sternly adds: “Retiring is off the table now. I don't know what I was thinking. I will never retire… ever, ever.”
Braxton and Babyface’s debut duet album, ‘Love, Marriage, Divorce’, will arrive next year (2014).
