Toni Braxton is stepping back into the spotlight with the release of her new album "Pulse." It has the potential to become another successful addition to a decade-long list of platinum records by the pop and R&B artist.

Braxton appeared on “Good Day LA” last Tuesday to talk about "Pulse," breaking the ice before her performance on the “Ellen DeGeneres Show” at the Warner Brothers Studios in Burbank. While making her appearance on “Ellen,” Braxton performed the new and upbeat single “Make My Heart.” Her voice shined brightly with a full band and tightly sequenced dance moves.

Braxton is also lined up for a performance on the “Mo’Nique Show” on BET for Monday. No announcements have been made regarding an official album tour, but Braxton has posted on her website that she is starting an official fan club, which is a new project for her career.

Sample tracks from "Pulse" are posted at ToniBraxton.com including “Hands Tied,” “Make My Heart,” and two different versions of “Yesterday.” All three songs have the potential to be singles. “Hands Tied” and “Yesterday” are both slower R&B tracks that Braxton mastered singing in the 1990s. “Make My Heart” is the more upbeat of the set, full of high energy with a catchy hook that should land steady radio play.

Braxton is a multi-platinum recording artist who has earned five Grammy Awards. Her first self-titled album came out in 1993 and sold over 8 million copies with memorable songs such as the hit single “Another Sad Love Song.” Braxton's low and sultry R&B voice, laced with well-produced pop beats, promises to make "Pulse" yet another successful new release.
