Two albums that made the Valentine’s Day cutoff are Toni Braxton and Babyface's 'Love, Marriage & Divorce' and Ruben Studdard's 'Unconditional Love.'
Toni Braxton and Babyface – Love, Marriage & Divorce (Motown)
Enjoy forty-three uninterrupted minutes of Grammy winning singers Toni Braxton and Babyface, as they unravel love and relationship issues at a cheaper price than a therapist. "I think because Babyface, and I have both gone through divorces, we can relate and we can collaborate together on this topic and make it so others who have gone through this situation can relate," said Toni Braxton.
"Hurt You" is the first single taken from the project. On the track, produced by Babyface, the two veterans sing about the hardships of being in a relationship, infidelity, and regret.
It is obvious what the album is about, but it is the listening experience that matters the most.
Ruben Studdard – Unconditional Love (Verve Music Group)
For Ruben Studdard's latest album, he received creative stewardship from Grammy producer David Foster, who is known for working with Celine Dion, Brandy, and Seal. After a two-year gap between releasing a new project, Studdard claims, “'Unconditional Love' is my most romantic album yet… It's the most heartfelt album I've ever recorded and includes many of my favorite songs from all different eras."
Along with David Foster, the album includes collaborations with Eric Benet and Lalah Hathaway.
A single from the album is "Meant To Be," a soulful, jazzy track that sets the proper expectation for the flavor of the project.
