Throwback Thursday ‘You’re Makin’ Me High’ by Toni Braxton (1996)
Toni Braxton put out her second studio album, Secrets, in 1996 and "You're Makin' Me High" was the lead single!
According to Wikipedia, "'You're Makin' Me High' became Braxton's first number-one single on both the US Billboard Hot 100 and Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs charts; it remained on top for one week on the former and for two weeks on the latter, eventually going Platinum."
"You're Makin' Me High" was such a huge song in 1996 that it was #9 on the Billboard Hot 100 year-end chart and #1 on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs!
Toni Braxton got her third Grammy for this song! She won the Grammy for Best Female R&B Vocal Performance in 1997.
The music video for "You're Makin' Me High" is full of famous cameos! Actresses Erika Alexander, Viva A. Fox, and Tisha Campbell-Martin play Toni Braxton's friends!
Toni Braxton's real life boyfriend at the time, Bryce Wilson, is also in the music video! He is the one she ultimately chooses to help her take a cotton candy bath.
"You're Makin' Me High" was a huge hit for Toni Braxton, but it was nothing compared to what was to come. The next single released from Secrets would be "Un-Break My Heart"!
On a personal note, I just realized "You're Makin' Me High" came out when I was 10. Add this song to the list of songs I had no business singing along to in the 90s.
