Though Toni Braxton’s stint on Dancing With The Stars was short lived, the singer isn’t licking her wounds. Instead, Toni is said to be returning to the music scene in 2009. The soulful diva, who set the world of R n’ B music on fire with her throaty vocals during the 1990s, is back with a new attitude, new record label (Atlantic), and a brand new song that is said to be a leak from her upcoming album. Melt (Like An Iceberg) is said to be a remake of a Claude Kelly classic and produced this time around by Harvey Mason and Damon Thaoms, the duo who also worked with Toni on her Libra CD. Other producers said to be tagging along include Rodney “Darkchild” Jerkins (Brandy, Beyonce) and Evan “Kidd” Bogart (Christina Milian, Britney Spears).
Songwriter and budding singer in her own right, Keri Hiolson, is also said to be contributing tracks to Toni’s upcoming CD.
