It’s official; a new Toni Braxton album is on the horizon.
In a recent sit down with The Insider, the R&B/Soul legend says her new project, ‘Sex & Cigarettes,’ will arrive early 2018 and that it will be for the grown and sexy.
“I’m excited; it’s been awhile. The last project I did was me and Babyface,” Braxton says. “The new album comes out at the top of the year, and it’s called ‘Sex & Cigarettes.’ I feel like I’m older; I wanna say what I feel, I don’t wanna be censored.”
As previously reported, the project is lead by the single “Deadwood,” which is said to be a raunchy record. A music video has been shot, and Braxton says it will be a steamy one.
“There’s this guy in the video who is super sexy,” she says. “I think we’re going to see a lot of him; he’s great eye candy.”
Braxton’s last album was 2014’s ‘Love, Marriage & Divorce’ with Babyface. Between time, she has been working on the Lifetime film, Fate Under Fire, which will premiere in 2018. Braxton plays Antoinette Tuff, the struggling single mom from Georgia who heroically averted a tragedy, saving hundreds of lives when she convinced a deranged gunman who stormed a Decatur, GA, elementary school in 2013 to surrender.
Faith Under Fire marks a return to Lifetime for Braxton, whose biopic Toni Braxton: Unbreak My Heart drew record ratings for the network.
