When Toni first stepped onto the scene with this debut, she easily defined herself as an artist to watch out for with one of the best albums of the decade. This was released back in '93 when R&B wasn't all about money and power. With the production team of LA Reid & Babyface, you really couldn't go wrong at the time (as they were at the top of their game back then).
Once upon a time, L.A. Reid and Babyface wrote a song for the "Boomerang" soundtrack titled "Love Shoulda Brought You Home," intended for Anita Baker. Schedules didn't match up, however, and the tune was instead handed to LaFace's recent discovery, Toni Braxton. Newcomer Braxton had some large shoes to fill indeed, but as it turned out, her ashen alto fit the blue, done-wrong-by-love lyrics to a T, and an R&B hit was launched. Will an entire project from a newcomer live up to such success?
It's been a decade since this album was released and we can still hear several songs on the radio such as: "another sand love song" which was the first single of the album, was certified Gold in the US, won a Grammy award for "best female pop vocal performance" and became a #1 hit. The second single, "breath again" was also certified Gold, became also a #1 hit and won a Grammy award for "best female pop vocal performance" in 1994, the success of the song was so big that Toni also realesed this song in spani..
