Toni Braxton has released her new single “Gotta Move On.” “I kinda thought, if it’s important/You would be right here, yeah/I should’ve saw it, I seen the warnings/When you couldn’t be here, no,” Braxton sings on the track.
“Tell me, would it burn/Baby, if the tables turned? (yeah)/Pardon if the tables turned/Tell me, could you handle it?/See I gotta, yeah.” Contextually similar to Braxton’s other single “Do It” featuring Missy Elliott, “Gotta Move On” is about leaving a relationship that isn’t working.
However, in this single, the R&B veteran is singing about herself leaving a lover instead of singing about her friend leaving a lackluster partner. The song derives from Braxton’s new forthcoming album Spell My Name, which drops on Aug. 28.
H.E.R. is featured on Braxton’s single but not as a singer; sheplayed the guitar on the track. Towards the end of the song, you can hear H.E.R.’s guitar solo.
