Toni Braxton is generously back once again to Un-Break Our Hearts for the millionth time. And this time around, she’s opting to dance away the heartbreak.
Ahead of the release of her just-announced studio album Spell My Name – her name, as we now know, Toni stands for Taking Out Negative Influence (!) – the legendary Miss Braxton just dropped the accompanying music video for her latest Antonio Dixon-produced single, “Dance.” And just as the subject matter of the song might imply, dance she does.
The Mike Ho-directed visual cuts to the chase and gives us exactly what we need with this horn-y, disco-tinged throwback: dance moves and gorgeous glamour shots. And shimmering wings! And a power suit!
And with that shiny, sheer black latex and hoodie ensemble and splashy choreography in ankle-deep water, she’s kind of giving us the grown version of The Pussycat Dolls‘ “React.” Extremely fierce.
Not to make this all about age, because there’s no time limit when it comes to being a superstar, but come on: 27 years after dropping her debut album, and Toni’s still doing the damn pop star thing and dancing circles around the new girls? I mean…this is a true Legends Only™ affair.
“Dance” it out, and find out what else to expect from Spell My Name.
