Toni Braxton was hospitalized several weeks ago and had to cancel her tour nights due to her battle with lups. On her Twitter account her camp posted this: " “Lupus needs to be constantly monitored and this minor setback should not affect the rest of her tour.”
Rising to fame in the early 1990s, Braxton quickly established herself as an R&B icon and became one of the best-selling female artists of the 1990s decade, garnering her honorific titles such as the "Queen of R&B" and being recognized as one of the most outstanding voices of this generation.
The single, "Un-Break My Heart", written and composed by Diane Warren, became the biggest hit of Braxton's career, spending eleven consecutive weeks at number one on the Hot 100 and also topping the Hot Dance Singles Sales chart for eleven weeks and the Hot Dance Music/Club Play chart for four weeks, as well as reaching no 2 in the United Kingdom.

They have released seventeen studio albums, six of which have been certified gold.
