It seems the remix package for Coping has been released before the actual song? Maybe by mistake? It sounds like the original might be a ballad.

Toni was honored at the Soul Train Awards last week. She performed a medley of Breathe Again, Love Shoulda Brought You Home, You're Makin' Me High and He Wasn't Man Enough. She went in to the audience for HWME and got Tamar to sing along.

Video here: https://www.bet.com/video/soultrainawar ... sta17.html

The night finished with a tribute performed by Ro James (Seven Whole Days), Jessie J (You Mean The World To Me) and Luke James singing Unbreak My Heart.

Does anyone else find some of her live performances quite frustrating to watch?

I'd really much rather listen to her actually sing her songs properly instead of mumbling a couple of words here and there.

"Deadwood" is so underwhelming, I cannot wait for her new album!

I'm wondering why they still haven't released the original version of Coping.

I bet the remixes were released by mistake.

Wow - she looks incredible and her voice is still perfection! Her voice has survived better than any of the Vocal Trinity. I do wish she didn't mumble-sing all the time but I can forgive that.

To be fair, her uptempos which were the bigger highlight in her medley were sung that way. :lol: :lol: :lol:

Unsurpassable TONE. Her "grunts" are also unique among female singers.

I totally agree. From the divas I adore, she is the only one that hasn’t compromised her voice over the years. Whitney and MC sadly :cry:

I recently started relistening to Love Shoulda Brought You Home :P
I love the opening line from Boomerang movie...”Love shoulda brought your ass home last night...”

Uhm... well you also can’t compare Toni’s voice and what she can do with it to Mariah’s and Whitney’s. Also comparing Whitney’s voice and what it sounded like the last 10 years of her life with Mariah’s recent voice is absurd lol Mariah still sounds lovely.
Anyway, I need a new album asap!!!
Shame on me for changing.... no no no... shame on you for stayin' the same.

To think that she has a health scare, she still brings her A game when she performs, no excuses whatsoever.

She needs to release that new album by early 2018!

Loving Hands Tied at the moment. Just discovered this live performance and only now realised that Toni is actually a great performer. She's serving fierce poses and doing all that stuff with the bands in her hands whilst slamming the vocals and giving Janet Jackson sexy vibes. Awesome.

WTH - at the end of this performance, Toni turns the performance into the original Single Ladies by Beyonce!

That dance is from the video from 2000 :P
Her looks make me think it’s probably promo time for her third album with the same song :P

Gotta love Toni :P
