Toni Braxton is back with a new album, Sex & Cigarettes.

This year marks the singer's 25th year in the music business, and her star continues to shine with the release of her ninth studio album. Led by the tracks “Deadwood”, “Long As I Live”  and the title song, "Sex & Cigarettes," Braxton's vocals are as sexy and silky as ever, with an undertone of longing and power that's come to define her sound.

Sex & Cigarettes is basically a song about the movement of infidelity, the slow walk of it and how your heart feels when you have to admit this is happening,” Toni says.

The project, which clocks in at a concise eight tracks, is her first major release since her Grammy-winning collaboration with Babyface, 2014's Love, Marriage and Divorce.

The album's release comes on the heels of Toni Braxton finally admitting that she and Birdman are not only together, but engaged, flashing the huge rock Birdman bought her during a recent interview.
