Toni Braxton is “looking forward” to dating once again.

The 56-year-old singer is currently focused on her Love and Laughter residency with Cedric the Entertainer in Las Vegas — but Braxton has revealed that she’s keen to find love when the residency finishes.

“Single is nice. I haven’t practiced it yet, but I’m going to soon ’cause I’ve been wrapped up in this show,” the singer, who was previously engaged to Birdman, shared with People magazine.

Despite this, Braxton has confessed to harboring some nerves about returning to the dating world.

“I am looking forward to getting out there and dating,” said the Grammy-winning star — who was married to singer-songwriter Keri Lewis between 2001 and 2013.

“I mean, dating can be scary too. It can be a little bit. But a nice guy, someone who will watch ‘Lifetime’ with me all day long [or] at least once in the week,” she added.

Meanwhile, Braxton has also teased details of her Las Vegas residency.

The singer likened Love and Laughter to watching “Sonny and Cher or Donny and Marie.”

“It’s not like I’m going to go on stage first, and then Cedric performs. We’re coming out together, in different acts, and we intermingle between those acts for funny bits. And this man is so talented — he can really sing. He’s, like, a triple threat. I had no idea,” Braxton explained about the seven-date residency, which begins on Saturday, April 27.

Cedric has also relished the experience of working with Braxton.

“We know Toni from the beautiful love ballads and everybody just kind of sees her as this sultry sultress, but she likes to have a good time. She’s not gonna be telling jokes, but she is funny,” the 60-year-old comedian shared.
