Album: Love, Marriage & Divorce (2014)

Songfacts®:

  • Love, Marriage & Divorce is a collaborative album by Toni Braxton and Babyface, containing 11 songs, eight of which are duets. The emphasis is on divorce and this Toni Braxton solo tune is a collection of vengeful thoughts aimed at her ex.

    The vindictive lyrics were almost too much for Babyface. Braxton recalled to The Guardian: "Kenny said, 'That's too abrupt. You can't sing that.' I said, 'Kenny, but that's really what women feel... He ended up loving it."
