"Another Sad Love Song" is the first official single from Toni Braxton's self-titled debut album, Toni Braxton (1993). After the success of "Love Shoulda Brought You Home", Braxton followed up with this single. The song proved to be a success, giving Braxton her first U.S. Billboard Hot 100 top ten hit (number seven) and her first Adult Contemporary hit (number eight), and narrowly missing the top position of the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs by peaking at number two, being held from the summit by SWV's "Right Here/Human Nature"/"Downtown". Internationally, "Another Sad Love Song" reached number fifteen in the United Kingdom, number twenty-three in the Netherlands, and number sixty in Germany.
The music video was released in three different versions. The first version was filmed in 1992 in black-and-white and featured the original music. The second version was filmed in May 1993 and was shown in color with exterior scenes from the first version. The third version was remixed to appeal to a wider audiences and was primarily shown in Europe. All three versions were successful and stayed in heavy rotation during the summer of 1993. "Another Sad Love Song" earned Braxton her first-ever Grammy Award, under the Best R&B Vocal Performance, Female category in 1994.
"Another Sad Love Song" was included in many greatest hits collections released by Braxton, including Ultimate Toni Braxton (2003), Platinum & Gold Collection (2004), The Essential Toni Braxton (2007) and Breathe Again: The Best of Toni Braxton (2009)
