Status Release: Trina, Toni Braxton and Bone Thugs-N-Harmony

By: Tiffani Haynes

Don’t call it a comeback, these folks don’t believe they’re making a comeback. To them, they never left.

These three artists have new albums emerging today after a hiatus from the game. Trina’s letting you know she’s Amazin’, Toni’s ready to put the Pulse back in R and B and Bone Thugs-N-Harmony don’t mind being Uni5: The World’s Enemy.

Today, Trina is releasing her fifth studio album Amazin’. The former first lady of Slip-N-Slide has cameos from Nicki Minaj, Keri Hilson, Trey Songz, Monica, Diddy and a host of others. Trina’s first single “Million Dollar Girl” featuring Diddy and Keri has hit the airwaves and given listeners a glimpse of what they can hope to hear on Trina’s album.

“My fans can expect to embrace my versatility and growth, professionally and personally. I am truly excited to share my new album with my fans. I worked with wonderful artists…” Trina told BET.

Trina’s a little rough around the edges for me but one thing can’t be denied, she’s stayed in the game longer than a lot of female rap artists and she’s still pulling features. The self-proclaimed “Baddest Chick” is back….

After Toni’s steamy kiss with Trey Songz on the 2009 Soul Train awards, it’s safe to say the 40-plus diva hasn’t lost it at all. At least not the ability to make every woman envious.  The two performed her first single “Yesterday” off her latest project, Pulse. Toni is releasing her sixth studio album on her Atlantic Records label with features from Trey Songz, Usher and Robin Thicke.

I’ve always been a mild Toni fan, mostly because of her ability to rock a short cut for decades and still look good, but her throaty voice has always been catchy too. Who can’t help slipping into their tenor voice to belt out “Just Be a Man About It?”

It’s been more than 15 years since the five-member rap group has produced an album. After legal woes and years apart, Bone Thugs-N-Harmony are back with their latest project, Uni5: The World’s Worst Enemy.

Krayzie Bone, Wish Bone, Flesh-N-Tone Bone, Layzie Bone and Bizzy Bone will be releasing the group’s ninth album on their own label, BTNH Worldwide, with distribution by Warner Bros. In March, Bone Thugs-N-Harmony launched a new 34-city tour starting in Minneapolis.

No matter how much music they come out with, I always flash back to the “Crossroads” video. Men in cornrows and passing as angels is hard to forget.
