Spanish Guitar by Toni Braxton


"Spanish Guitar" is the third single from Toni Braxton's third studio album, The Heat (2000). Released in 2000, the song was written by Diane Warren and produced by David Foster, the same team behind Braxton's 1996 smash hit "Un-Break My Heart". It was never released as a commercial single in the United States, causing the song to chart outside the top ninety-five of the Billboard Hot 100. This song remains a fan favorite as Braxton often performs the dance version live.

The song was present on the international soundtrack of the Brazilian soap opera Laços de Família (2000), causing a radio smash on the Brazilian radio stations and becoming Braxton's signature song, alongside Un-Break My Heart there.

In 2010 the song was recorded by flamenco guitarist Benise (with Kimberley Locke providing vocals) for his album also entitled "Spanish Guitar".
