A story about heartbreak, Braxton takes the adventurous sonic mix of sounds engineered by hitmaker Antonio Dixon to rid herself of relationship blues and move on with her life.
“I found out just the other day / That you were giving it away / I found just the other day / I ain’t trying to make you stay / You told me that you’d never hurt me / Made me believe that I was your only,” she croons.
“Dance” is the second single from Braxton’s forthcoming album, Spell My Name, which hits shelves and streaming platforms on August 28.
Her follow-up to 2018’s Sex & Cigarettes and first album on Island Records will feature a guest appearance from Grammy singer-songwriter H.E.R. It will include the lead single and smash R&B hit “Do It.” The Missy Elliott-assisted remix of her 18th top 10 R&B single will make the official tracklisting.
Twenty-four years ago this week, Braxton celebrated her first-ever number-one single on the Hot 100, as “You’re Makin’ Me High” topped the chart. We spoke with music video director and longtime friend and collaborator Bille Woodruff about the genesis of the record, as well as the risque video.
