Braxton Back Recording For LaFace

R&B diva Toni Braxton has resolved her contractual differences with LaFace Records and is recording a new album for the label, a LaFace spokesperson said Wednesday. Braxton sued LaFace in December 1997, when she claimed her recording agreements were invalid under California's so-called seven-year statute, which limits personal service contracts to seven years. After LaFace and parent company Arista countersued for breach of contract, Braxton filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy, thus putting both lawsuits on hold. Braxton's as-yet untitled next album is scheduled for a May release on LaFace.
