Toni Braxton's Album Preview Party

Singer Toni Braxton previewed her new album and debut from Atlantic Records last night (10/19) to an exclusive crowd in New York City. The album includes smoldering ballads and a few uptempos to keep her fans and competition on their toes. Among the favorites were, “No Way, No How,” “Make My Heart,” “Looking At You,” and the pop leaning ballad “Wait For You.”

The crowd, which included long time friend/fashion designer Marc Bouwer, was exceptionally pleased with the R&B-laden track, “Hands Tied,” and which Mrs. Braxton says, “I can love you with my hands tied, I can please you with my hands tied,” while on the track, “Not Enough (Woman),” she explains to her love, “All I needed was for you to tell me I’m beautiful but your not even talking at all.” Braxton’s current single, “Yesterday,” and remix featuring Trey Songz has been receiving a positive response with her album scheduled for release in February 2010.

Trey Songz Collaborates With Toni Braxton

Trey Songz is living the dream. And part of that dream includes recording with R&B veterans like Toni Braxton.

The “I Need a Girl” singer has completed an official remix to “Yesterday,” the first single from Braxton’s new album Pulse, due out February 8, 2010 on Atlantic Records. The remix was produced by Troy Taylor, who has worked with Aretha Franklin and Whitney Houston.

As it turns out, the “Un-Break My Heart” songstress was a fan of her 24-year-old labelmate before they collaborated. “[My publicist] told me that in a couple interviews she’s mentioned that I was her favorite male singer right now,” Songz told “And that just took it to a whole ’nother level to be on a record with her.”

"Yesterday" is currently number 72 on Billboard's Top R&B 100 chart and available for download @
