Toni Braxton’s song “How Many Ways” is a hit in the United States.
For her self-titled debut album (1993), it was written by Braxton, Vincent Herbert, Ben Garrison, Keith Miller, and Noel Goring, with Herbert overseeing production.
The song is based on a sample from The Headhunters’ 1975 song “God Make Me Funky,” which features the Pointer Sisters.
Several other writers are attributed as songwriters as a result of the sample.
Lyrically, the song’s protagonist says that she loves her partner in a variety of ways.
