It is no secret in the music industry that Toni Braxton has lost her passion when it comes to recording new music. Many artists have weighed in their thoughts on the super stars decision to quit music, including American Idol winner Fantasia Barrino.
Fantasia tells Singersroom.com, “I watched the Braxton show and I was listening to Toni Braxton…she was talking about how she lost the passion and the love for music, and I almost broke down and cried. You look back at all the things she’s done, and her talent is amazing, and for somebody that was born into music, literally is music, to say that they don’t have that passion anymore, it broke my heart”
The singer who has also thought about quitting music continues, “I think that comes from all the other drama and all the other dumb stuff that comes with the industry now…For me, I don’t ever want to get to that point, and I was almost at that point! I’m here to bless the people that listen to me.”
Fantasia’s new album, Side Effects of You is available now.

Toni Braxton dropped a bombshell when she said that she was done with music. In the weeks following her announcement, the R&B icon has received an outpouring of support from her peers. While hosting her sister Tamar’s Backyard Boogie Baby Shower at the Hotel Bel-Air, the oldest Braxton spoke out about her leave of absence from the industry.
“I’m kinda still on the done with music side, but we’ll see,” she told Rap-Up TV. “I haven’t done any recording, nothing in the studio.”
Some of her famous friends including Anita Baker, Babyface, and Missy Elliott have tried to encourage her to get back in the studio. “Missy called me. [She said], ‘I’ll be in town, come by, just come say hi,’” she shared. “They’re kinda tryna push me to do something. But I love them for that and it makes me feel so much better ’cause I don’t feel so alone.”
She’s not the only superstar who fell out of love with music. “Someone told me Barbra Streisand, who is like the queen bee, felt the same way, but she didn’t do it for 10 years,” said Toni.
Even if it takes that long, she sees the silver lining. “Maybe I’ll be a better singer ’cause I feel like Barbra got even better, so we’ll see.”
