Regarding her latest album, the first single, entitled “I Heart You,” is a going to be a club banger she says.
“When I wrote this song, I was thinking about the feeling you get when you walk into a club and you hear the melody; you feel the beat, and you just know it’s going to be a good night.”
The untitled album will be mix of up-beat songs along with songs of love and sadness. She says it’s a good balance of both sides of life.
As the times change, she has to keep up with the trends. And over the years, Braxton has done a pretty good job at staying relevant, but it’s not easy.
“It’s not always about even selling records anymore. It’s about how big you can make your personality, which creates this image that people want. Now you make records as a platform to tour,” she explains. In this new musical landscape, the R&B veteran says she admires artists like Rihanna because “she’s not afraid of her sexuality.”
