My favorite songs: “Hurt You”

Toni Braxton & Babyface’s Love, Marriage and Divorce, as we get closer to decade’s end, increasingly sounds the decade’s best album, the R&B cousin of Shoot Out the Lights. Between ‘Face’s pen and that stunning ache in Braxton’s voice, “Hurt You” is pure pain on record. And in the second verse, when it’s spelled out that both characters in the song cheated on each other? Devastating.
