About Toni Braxton

Toni Braxton began singing professionally in the ‘80s with her three sisters as The Braxtons. People first connected with her mesmerizing voice when it was featured on the soundtrack to the 1992 Eddie Murphy box office smash Boomerang. That set the stage for Braxton's 1993 breakthrough with her self-titled debut LaFace album — now eight times platinum. The project also garnered the singer the first three of her seven Grammy Awards.

As a solo artist, she's logged an estimable number of career-defining moments. Between 1996 and 2010, she released six solo albums (Secrets, The Heat, Snowflakes, More Than a Woman, Libra and Pulse) and charted a string of hits (including “You Mean the World to Me,” “You're Makin' Me High” and “I Love Me Some Him”/ “I Don't Want To”) before teaming with Babyface in 2014 for the critically acclaimed duets album that won her a seventh Grammy for Best R&B Album.

The unstoppable baritone vocalist then roared back in 2018 with Sex & Cigarettes—and simultaneously kicked off her silver anniversary in music.Braxton has left her imprint on other notable ventures, in April 2023, she signed an all-encompassing production deal with the Lifetime and A+E network.

The pact extends Braxton's long-running association with Lifetime. She previously starred in three TV films for the network: 2013's Twist of Faith, 2016's Toni Braxton: Unbreak My Heart (adapted from her same-titled, 2014 best-selling memoir) and 2018's Faith Under Fire: the Antoinette Tuff Story.Braxton launched body care line Nude Sugar in 2021. Available exclusively at Ulta Beauty, the line caters to people of color dealing with dryness and other issues.
