This Christmas season, Toni Braxton welcomed a brand new baby boy. Perhaps inspired by the little one's impending arrival (and all that baby-making beforehand) she set to work on Snowflakes - a Christmas album that is sometimes cozy, often seductive and always strictly R&B. New songs (co-written by Babyface and David Foster) such as "Christmas in Jamaica," a steamy yet fun duet with reggae gigolo Shaggy, and "Santa PleaseŠ," a slightly toned-down "You're Making Me High" for the holidays, ooze with the same languid, lush vocals and mellow, hip-swiveling beats that pervade Braxton's other work. Even the standards, like "Christmas Time Is Here," get glazed with Braxton's sensuality. Her smooth alto lingers on each note and nearly reinvents the classic. A little bit naughty and a whole lot of nice, Snowflakes encourages listeners put the mistletoe to good use this year.
