Toni Braxton is Team Babyface against Teddy Riley
Babyface and Teddy Riley will be face to face in a music battle. Both being writers and producers in the music industry thought about bringing some fun while millions are in lockdown worldwide. A free concert with two powerhouses is too good to pass on. And no one is more excited than one of Babyfaces’ biggest followers and his apprentice, Toni Braxton.
They have a long, working history. Babyface has written and arranged many of Braxton’s top hits. But then a jam session was cut short because of technical issues on Teddy Riley’s end. Hence, Braxton was disappointed and took to Twitter to express her feelings. And in the recent Instagram post, she is making it obvious that she is team Babyface.
Braxton’s and Babyface’s work collaboration
Babyface is the sculptor behind Toni Braxton. He’s the one who wrote and produced most of her hits on her first two albums. He’s the man behind her signature musical sound that she has become synonymous with. And he is also the one who has crafted her overall look and groomed her persona.
After Braxton announced her retirement from music, Babyface was the one who made her rethink her decision and reconsider her plans of retirement. She confided in him that she was growing tired of the industry especially after continued troubles in her personal life. She told him she wanted to retire especially after her two bankruptcies, divorce and the medical diagnosis of lupus.
But, Babyface sat her down and explained to her that life isn’t always going to be easy. Life happens but she needs to stay strong and move forward. Braxton told The Baltimore Sun in an interview:
“He understood what I was going through. I had my illness. He said, ‘Your story isn’t always going to be smiley faces, Toni. You have to get up and do it, even when you don’t want to sometimes.’”
No wonder she’s siding up with Babyface!
