    Fun fact:
    “Un-Break My Heart” was originally written for Celine Dion, and “Because You Loved Me” was originally written for Toni Braxton.

    I never knew this, but this is what I found:

    When Diane Warren played the finished song to Arista Records’ president L.A. Reid, he thought it would fit Braxton’s then upcoming album. When “Un-Break My Heart” was sent to Braxton, she expressed dislike for the song. According to Warren, “Toni hated the song. She didn’t want to do it.”Reid was able to convince Braxton to record it, and it later became her signature song. Following the recording sessions of the song, Braxton approached Warren and explained why she was skeptical about recording it, further explaining that she didn’t want another “heartbreak track”.

    I would take away her wins in 95 and 97 and give those to aretha and whitney respectively, and give her pop vocal album for secrets

    I wish Dance Single had existed at the Grammys because Aretha won have deserved a nomination and a win for A Deeper Love.
