R&B may have been rejuvenated in recent years with the help of some fresh-faced crooners—Frank Ocean, The Weeknd and Miguel to name just a few—but the genre will be missing one of its most beloved voices. Appearing on Good Morning America yesterday, Toni Braxton announced her retirement from recording. The veteran songstress, who has sold over 65 million records worldwide and won an incredible eight Grammy Awards in her 20-year career, explained that “her heart isn’t in [music] anymore.” Ms. Braxton later guested on The Wendy Williams Show, where clarified her previous comments. She did, however, reassure her fans that she will continue to perform live “here and there.”

I’m singing in [‘Twist of Faith’] but that’s about it for me… I’ll have do shows here and there, but I’m not going to do any albums… I’m falling out of love with it, it’s weird. I don’t know what to say when I hear songs, they don’t impact me.
