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.”

Let's celebrate Waiting to Exhale this Sunday May 24th 2020 at 8 PM EST, 5 PM PST on Instagram Live.
