24 years since her debut, Toni Braxton is out here thirst trappin.
The R&B legend recently announced that she will be returning with her first solo album in seven years. The project, titled Sex & Cigarettes, will be her eighth studio album, and it is scheduled for an early 2018 release.
Speaking with The Insider, Braxton revealed the provocative title. “I’m excited to be doing what I love doing,” she said. “The new album comes out at the top of the year and it’s called Sex & Cigarettes. I feel like I’m older, I want to say what I feel, I don’t want to be censored.”
On Monday (Sept. 11), she teased the first single “Deadwood” by sharing it’s racey black and white cover art. Toni recently filmed a video for the song as well. “There is this guy in the video who’s super sexy,” said Braxton. “I think we’re going to be seeing a lot of him. He’s great eye candy.”
