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."
Linda from Oakland, Ca, UsaToni has the most poignant voice I've ever heard. She really knows how to emote pain with her singing. Her voice, combined with the very honest lyrics, make this song really touching.
The lyrics to "Heartbreak Hotel" were written by a steel guitar player who was once a dishwasher repairman. He was inspired by a newspaper story about a man who killed himself and left behind a note saying only, "I walk a lonely street."
