    I LOVE her first two albums. They slayed hard for me.
    In fact, I've made a Spotify playlist with 14 tracks only (2 off each album minus "Libra"). It looks like this:

    01. Another Sad Love Song [Toni Braxton]
    02. Seven Whole Days [Toni Braxton]
    03. Un-break My Heart [Secrets]
    04. Let It Flow [Secrets]
    05. He Wasn't Man Enough [The Heat]
    06. Spanish Guitar [The Heat]
    07. Hit The Freeway [More Than A Woman]
    08. And I Love You [More Than A Woman]
    09. Yesterday [Pulse]
    10. Pulse [Pulse]
    11. Roller Coaster [Love, Marriage & Divorce]
    12. Hurt You [Love, Marriage & Divorce]
    13. Deadwood [Sex & Cigarettes]
    14. Long As I Live [Sex & Cigarettes]
    She's quite consistent and always delivers 2 very memorable songs each era.
    What about "Where Did We Go Wrong" from Love, Marriage Divorce? Her voice on that....in fact BOTH their voices on that track, but Toni' in particular, I could listen to it all day! I also really love "I Wish" & "I'd Rather Go Broke". The whole album is just so well done. I really hope they drop a Part II someday.

    I've been listening to Toni all week. I think it was seeing Bey's Halloween costume.

    Her only filler heavy album to me is The Heat. Her first two albums and Libra are three of the best R&B albums ever. Love, Marriage and Divorce doesn't fall behind as well. I wish she worked with Babyface again for her next album.

    For me they’ve proven that 2 decades later (Debut 1993 and Secrets 1996 and LMD 2013) they’ve never lost that chemistry. Why fix something that isn’t broken? She should continue working with him as a producer. They make baby making music

    Her first two albums are her best by far. You should really check them out. Filled with single material.

    If you love Libra, you will love her first two.

    Although, her first two albums are what made Toni Braxton the bad bitch that she is. How on earth you ain't listen to them? :evil:

    What a great time to be a Toni fan! Hope she wins at least one! H.E.R. and Lalah Hathaway are her biggest competition.

    Unfortunately she'll lose to H.E.R/Daniel Caesar for R&B Performance and H.E.R for Best R&B Album. The fact that H.E.R has FIVE nominations including Album Of The Year & Best New Artist means The Academy are clearly big fans. I think she'll lose to Boo'd Up (which is nominated for Song Of The Year) for R&B Song.

    I do think it's gonna be tight though and Toni will end up in the top 2 for all/most of her categories. The Grammys love Toni...but H.E.R and Ella will be difficult to beat this year as both have had such good years. It's a shame H.E.R is nominated for R&B Album instead of Urban Contemporary Album otherwise I would have said Toni will win that one.

    Don’t count Toni out though. She’s a Grammy darling. They tend to go her way with whatever she has been nominated for.

    SZA was a big nominee last year and she went home empty-handed.

    Outside of BNA SZA's noms were just in the urban categories though last year. But time will tell. I know the Grammys love them some Toni!

    I think she deserves to win R&B Performance and Song for Long As I Live as that song is stunning, timeless perfection. By far the best song in those categories.

    I can see me blasting that song 20 years from now, like a song from Secrets!

    She needs to win one at least, "Long as I Live" is one of the best R&B songs in the dying classic R&B age of the 2010s.

    I agree! The first time I heard it I was hooked! It's so smooth and classic but current.

    I really like the Album especially "Deadwood" and "Sorry". It´s her best album since "Secrets" although I like all her albums. I hope Toni wins a Grammy for "Long as I live" - it´s so classic Toni.

    I'd make a deal with God
