“Un-Break My Heart” was the second single off Toni Braxton’s multi-platinum album Secrets – released in 1996. It was created by legendary songwriter, Diane Warren and produced by equally prolific producer, David Foster.
In her VH1 Behind The Music special she expressed her dislike for the song when it was presented to her. She was ultimately convinced by LA Reid, co-owner of LaFace Records, to record it. It went on to be a worldwide smash hit and seventeen years later it remains Toni’s signature song. It spent 11 weeks atop the Billboard Hot 100 and it earned her a Grammy for Best Female Pop Vocal Performance.
It’s one of those classic R&B ballads that has stood the test of time and always will be remembered as part of the soundtrack of the 90’s.
