Toni Braxton Releases Single "Long As I Live" From New Album
It's been nearly 25 years since R&B singer Toni Braxton made her music industry debut. To celebrate, not only are we getting a new single but her first album since 2014 and a spring tour.
The GRAMMY winner is slated to release her ninth studio album, Sex And Cigarettes, on March 23. Sex And Cigarettes marks her first project since her 2014 collaboration with producer Babyface, the Best R&B Album GRAMMY winner Love, Marriage & Divorce. Her last solo work was 2010's Pulse.
Ahead of its release, we get the first single, "Long As I Live." Billboard describes the song as "a familiarly soulful '90s-style bop about breaking up and moving on, with Braxton proving that her voice and style are as strong as ever." The song is co-written and co-produced by Braxton, as are many tracks on the album, including "My Heart," a duet with GRAMMY winner Colbie Caillat.

Braxton will also head out on a North American tour this spring in support of the album, which will include a 25th-anniversary celebration of her early career start. Details on the upcoming tour will be forthcoming.
