Toni Braxton has been at the forefront of modern R&B and soul every since she first hit the charts in 1991. Today, the multiple GRAMMY Award winning songstress is releasing her much anticipated 6th new studio album, Pulse." The record is Braxton's most personal musical statement to date that follows her recent separation from her long-time husband Keri Lewis, a move to Atlantic Records, a stint on Dancing With The Stars and a serious heart condition that created a health scare two years ago.
Produced by red hot hitmakers like Lucas Secon (Britney Spears, The Pussycat Dolls) and David Foster (Whitney Houston, Barbra Streisand, Celine Dion), the singer puts out a sound on "Pulse" that is classic Toni Braxton but fits the pop charts of today, balancing heartfelt balladry and uplifting, contemporary pop hits.
In my exclusive interview with Braxton, the singer talks candidly what this new album means to her and how therapeutic it was to record it. She also chats about the support of the gay community, her current health condition and (surprise!) bowling with none other than Lady Gaga. Read on for the entire interview. (Photo by Michael Leckie)
