The slow-building track finds Toni crooning about calling it quits on a relationship after being blinded by the “warning” signs.
The track hails from Toni’s upcoming album, Spell My Name, which drops Friday, August 28. It follows her previous singles “Dance” and “Do It,” which landed her a ninth #1 single on Billboard‘s Adult R&B Songs chart.
Spell My Name will follow Braxton’s Grammy-nominated 2018 LP, Sex & Cigarettes, which featured the chart-topping single “Long As I Live.”
” Oh, I got it bad. So tell me would it burn if the tables were turned?
Tell me, could you handle it? I know you couldn’t, I just gotta move on,” she sings.
Instead of her lending her vocals, H.E.R. assisted Toni with a killer guitar performance towards the end of the track. She previously showed off her instrumental skills on her Girls With Guitars Instagram Live series.
In a statement, Missy Elliot shared “I was scared, because anyone who knows me, knows that I’m a huge fan of Toni Braxton! I’ve worked with so many legends but I had never worked directly with Toni before. So I thought, what if she hears it and says ‘oh HELL NAH Missy done messed my record up.’ But thank God when she heard it, she loved it and here we are! Now I can say I finally worked with the living legend – Ms Toni Braxton.”
