Jesse McCartney Rings Up Toni Braxton
Beyoncé isn’t the only one to put a ring on it. Singer-songwriter Jesse McCartney exclusively tells Rap-Up.com about a similar ring-themed track he wrote for Toni Braxton’s new album.
“I did a record for Toni Braxton called ‘My Ring’s Too Heavy,’” says the soon-to-be 22-year-old pop star, whose album Departure: Recharged hits stores today. “Three weeks later, Beyoncé came out with a record called ‘Single Ladies’ and it sort of has a hand and a ring theme behind it.”
The song was recorded for the “Dancing with the Stars” alum’s sixth studio album, due out on Atlantic Records. “No offense to Beyoncé, I think Toni’s is a little bit better in my opinion, but we’ll have to see what the charts do.”
Meanwhile, the “Bleeding Love” songwriter has plans to hit the studio with “American Idol” Jordin Sparks for her sophomore album.
