Toni Braxton Doing Studio Time

Wondered recently what Toni Braxton was up to? Well, here on, we’ve the latest scoop.

The five-time Grammy winner announced that she has been recording tracks for her follow-up LP after ‘The Heat’ album that came out sometime in 2000. This upcoming album of hers is slated to come out later this year.

Together with producer Rodney Jerkins, Toni Braxton has been in Atlanta for lots of studio time now and so far, two songs, ‘Whatcha Need’ and ‘Do U Remember?’ have been completed for the still-untitled disc. Apparently ‘Whatcha Need,’ is a catchy, up-tempo song using Rodney’s new sound called the “Darkchild on-and-off knock” while ‘Do U Remember’ is described as a mid-tempo jazz number.The ‘Spanish Guitar’ singer who was unable to get to this year’s Grammy Awards said she was surprised by the immense popularity of ‘He Wasn’t Man Enough.’ “I didn’t even want to record the song. That’s what makes the nominations so much more wonderful,” Toni said. “I told them I didn’t think we should record it because the album’s finished. But the record company said I had to do it. Now I’m so glad I did, because I’d be in big trouble if I hadn’t. Maybe my new record better have a few more ‘Man Enough’ kinda songs.”
