On Tuesday (May 19), Tamar Braxton took to Instagram to kick off the “Toni Braxton Challenge” hilariously honoring her older sister, following in Babyface’s footsteps.”[Babyface] She’s going to KILL us!!!! but I think u started the [Toni Braxton] challenge that I am here for,” Tamar wrote in the caption of her post.
In the post, Tamar hilariously impersonated Toni, singing her hit song “Let It Flow,” from the Waiting To Exhale soundtrack.”Alright, Babyface. I love you so much, so I’m going to show you how to do Toni Braxton,” Tamar said before singing.”You gotta put bass in your throat, like,” Tamar said before clearing her throat and singing, impersonating Toni. Many fans have now joined the challenge on social media.
As we previously reported, on Tuesday (May 19), Babyface took to Instagram to announce that he has rescheduled his Waiting To Exhale Instagram Live performance.
In the post that Babyface made announcing the rescheduled performance, he shared a hilarious video where he talks about how he wrote Toni Braxton’s “Let It Flow,” which appeared on the Waiting to Exhale soundtrack.
“Hey, everybody. Twenty years ago, or so I sat down with my guitar and started to write a song for Toni Braxton and the Waiting To Exhale movie project. Now, When you’re writing a song for Toni, you kind of have to write in a specific way,” Babyface said in the video that he shared.
“So I’d like to share a little secret on how to write a song for Toni Braxton. First, you need a glass of water. I prefer bottled water but in a pinch, I will use tap water. Second, take a sip and swallow but leave a little in the bottom of your mouth. This way, they won’t completely understand the words you’re singing. Third, sing with lots of emotion.”
Babyface then began hilariously singing “Let It Flow” as if he were Braxton before plugging the virtual performance. “Sunday, May 24th, 2020…Come to help me celebrate and hear the stories about the music and the ladies of Waiting To Exhale.”
