Singer Toni Braxton is back in the studio with the man who helped launch her career, Kenneth 'babyface' Edmonds, for the first time in years.

The Un-Break My Heart hitmaker was signed to Edmonds' LaFace record label ahead of her self-titled debut album's release in 1993.

The pair went on to share huge success, with Edmonds working as a writer and producer on her next two hit records, but the duo later parted ways professionally, and Braxton has since failed to replicate her previous chart glory.

They are now working together again on Braxton's eighth album, which will be released through Motown Records later this year (13).

Producer Jermaine Dupri admits he is thrilled the stars are back in the studio together, writing in a post on, "Happy to see this, I never understood why they stopped working together in the first place."
