I love Secrets. Especially Come On Over Here, There's No Me Without You, How Could An Angel Break My Heart (although I prefer the duet version with Babyface slightly over this version with Kenny G), Let It Flow and I Don't Want To.

The lead single is already out, that's the song you quoted, the album release date is not known yet, unless I have missed something.

^ I know it's the song I quoted. I just couldn't find it on Spotify. But somehow VEVO got it a day early.

I've added it to my playlist and I really like the first few listens I gave this song.

EXCLUSIVE: Toni Braxton's New Music Is 'About Me Feeling Sexy and Independent'

Toni Braxton is back!

It's been four years since the release of the singer's collaborative studio album with Babyface, Love, Marriage & Divorce, now Braxton is returning freer and unfiltered.

Speaking with ESSENCE, Braxton revealed that things are much different this time around on her new album, Sex & Cigarettes. "Love, Marriage & Divorce was about the ins and outs of marriage," the singer said. "It was a collaborative project where I was able to speak from a woman's perspective and Babyface spoke from a man's perspective on relationships."

"Sex & Cigarettes is more about me feeling sexy, independent, and expressing my feelings. I think for a long time I felt I had to make certain records, but now I want to just be free! I don't want to be censored, I just want to focus on being an artist and creating good quality music that people can relate to."

The singer's new single, "Deadwood," is the first step to revealing an uncensored Braxton. It's the debut track from her upcoming album, which is set for release at the top of 2018, and sees the singer exploring a complicated love. However, it's the album's titular track that Braxton can't wait for fans to hear, calling it ''the signature to the album.''

And, music isn't the only thing Braxton has up her sleeve.

The singer will star in Lifetime's upcoming movie Faith Under Fire, which tells the true story of Antoinette Tuff, a single mother who saved hundreds in an elementary school when she convinced a gunman to surrender.

"I did a lot of research to get me into character. I watched all of her interviews and studied her mannerisms. I actually met Antoinette in person on set, she's a very courageous woman. I am inspired by her bravery and honored to be playing her in Faith Under Fire. She is a true hero."

So, with a new album and movie slated for 2018, what else can we expect from the Grammy-winning singer? "We're talking about doing another international tour. We're still tying up some loose strings on a few projects that I can't quite speak on yet, but there are definitely things in the works."

Everyone's doing it lately; however, for Toni, we all know that she has health issues so maybe that is being considered as well.

She said on a interview that she wanted to release it around the time her movie drops.

As well, it seems one single is not enough to launch an album these days (except if your name is Adele)
Hell even Tayloo already has 2 singles out for the new album.

They may test the Market. If its a success the album pops out.

But the song is too weak. Its already over.

I hope for upbeat songs.

I usually prefer ballads but needs to be a good one, the new song is not bad but I expected something better, hope it is one of the weakest on the album.

I like the song. But it doesn't sound like a hit.
Of course I hope there are stronger songs on the album, but this makes me a little excited already.
It's a good song.

I don't like Deadwood. It sounds like something from Pulse, and it's my least favorite album from Toni.

Pulse isn't her worst, but far from her best.

If she is to continue that sound, please more "Hands Tied" like songs.

Deadwood is average at best. She needs to come with a screaming Toni anthem.

I don't like "Deadwood" too, I hope it's just a warm-up single!

Deadwood is nice, but has little replay value for me. I'm sure she'll deliver some tracks I can eat up tho.

I listened to The Heat over the weekend and I found all the life I had lost last week. So good.
