Toni Braxton wants Drake to perform at her wedding.
The 50-year-old singer revealed last month she has gotten engaged to her partner and rapper Birdman when a teaser clip for the upcoming season of Toni's TV show 'Braxton Family Values' was released showing the beauty telling her sisters about her upcoming nuptials.
And now, the star has said she would love to get 31-year-old musician Drake - who is signed to Birdman's Cash Money record label - to take to the stage at the ceremony.
Birdman has described his fiancée Toni Braxton as his "life".
The 49-year-old rapper and the 50-year-old singer confirmed their engagement earlier this week when a teaser clip for the upcoming season of Toni's TV show 'Braxton Family Values' was released showing the beauty telling her sisters about her upcoming nuptials.
And now, Birdman - whose real name is Bryan Christopher Williams - has gushed over his partner, whom he dubbed as his "everything".
Toni Braxton's last album was in 2014 and titled "Love, Marriage & Divorce."
These days she looks to be more focused on the first two of those.
In a tweeted teaser for the sixth season of her family's WE realty series, "Braxton Family Values," the singer shares some news.
"I have an announcement to make," Braxton says. "I'm engaged!"
How does a stunner of a singer follow a stunner of a singer on the Grammys red carpet? In 2001, Braxton pulled a JLo when she wore a white silk jersey Richard Tyler dress, but not just any white dress.
She went all in on the hip-baring in a dress that had no sides, save a crystal-embellished piece of fabric that held the front and the back together. But there was hardly a back or a front to go with the no sides.

Adele's Tuesday and Wednesday shows at Toyota Center sold out within minutes of going on sale last December. But you can still get tickets - if you're prepared to drop some serious cash.
Online resale sites Stubhub and Vivid Seats both have plenty of seats for both shows, from the top levels to the floor. And you'll likely find a few folks offering up tickets outside the venue tonight and Wednesday.
Toni Braxton was playful, flirty and chatty throughout her Friday night show at the Arena Theatre. And she still has the air of a superstar.
"Are you ready to have an orgy?" she joked to the crowd.
"I was just making sure you're listening."
