"You Mean the World to Me" is the fourth single from Toni Braxton's self-titled debut album, Toni Braxton (1993). The track was released in March 1994 and was a radio hit, peaking at number seven on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 and number three on the Billboard Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs. The song describes Braxton realizing that her lover means the world to her, but he had better shape up or ship out.

The music video, directed by Lionel C. Martin, showed a sequence of Braxton playing the piano in a mansion intercut with scenes of her with her love interest (portrayed by German-born Michael Calvin Bacon, who previously appeared in Short Cuts, but later starred as J.B. Reese on Saban's VR Troopers and is an African Puerto Rican martial artist). It stayed in heavy rotation during the spring and summer of 1994.
