“He Wasn’t Man Enough” is a song from American R&B recording artist and songwriter Toni Braxton, and was released as the lead single from her third studio album, The Heat (2000). The song was released on March 7, 2000 by LaFace Records. The song was produced by Rodney ‘Darkchild’ Jerkins. “He Wasn’t Man Enough” is a dance-pop and R&B inspired song. The song saw differences through the genre with her previous ballads to more uptempo music.

The song had received generally positive reviews from music critics, many praising it as one of Braxton’s best work. The song had international success, becoming one of Braxton signature songs, peaking at number two on the Billboard Hot 100, where the single stood for several weeks, and number one on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs for four weeks. This song is her last Top 10 appearance on the Billboard Hot 100 to date. An accompanying music video was released for the single, featuring Braxton and her friends at a club, until her ex-husband and his new wife crash the groups fun. But until Braxton confronts her that he’s a cheat, they plan a trap to show he is, when he unzips his zipper of his pants, and a live camera sees them, and she busts him, with Braxton and her giving a high-five. The song earned Braxton her fourth Grammy Award for Best Female R&B Vocal Performance in 2001.
