Toni Braxton and Babyface Break Down Walls in ‘Hurt You’ Video
Leave it to Toni Braxton and Kenneth “Babyface” Edmonds to not only make ‘Hurt You,’ a ballad centered on crossing the line, so irresistibly catchy, but also create a stimulating visual to accompany it.
The singers serve as a troubled couple in the Ray Kay-directed video, doing their dirty work just a room away from each other. Braxton cozies up to another man, while Babyface gets close and personal with a slim beauty.
But the pair soon realize the pain they’re causing each other isn’t worth the heartbreak. “God knows I never meant to hurt you / I never meant to break your heart, your heart, babe / God knows I never meant to turn you out, turn you out,” they sing.
As a result, they break down the walls between them to rebuild their relationship. Sometimes happily ever after really does happen.
The song is the first single off Toni Braxton and Babyface’s duets album ‘Love, Marriage, & Divorce,’ which arrives Nov. 25.
