Toni Braxton came strong with her new album Spell My Name. The set found the R&B diva reclaiming her crown and reminding the youngsters why her name is revered among music lovers and fans. One of the set's many highlights came in the form of single "Gotta Move On," which found Toni collaborating with the newer generation's "it" girl H.E.R. Now she's giving us drama with a Mike Ho directed-video for the track that gives life to the song's narrative.
The clip focuses on the relationship between a man and woman whose life together seems to be perfect at first. We soon see that is not the case, though, as we realize that what we're really seeing are memories of when the love was good. In the present day, she's a teary mess as she tries to wash, exercise and drink away her pain as she suffers from his neglect. It all culminates with the woman finally deciding to exit stage left on what appears to be her wedding day, leaving her ring and her life with Mr. Wrong behind. Toni and H.E.R. are on hand for encouragement in separately filmed black-and-white scenes. Toni's scenes, which feature the singer in black lingerie, highlight the singer's sexy side. Meanwhile, H.E.R. gets the power treatment as she shreds a clear electric guitar in scenes shot by director Billie Woodruff.
"Gotta Move On" was already another jewel on the crown of R&B's heartbreak queen, and the video only solidifies that Toni Braxton reigns supreme. Check out the dramatic clip when you press play.
