I Look To You – Whitney Houston

September 14, 2009

Okay – probably time to ‘fess up; back in the day I was a big Whitney Houston fan. I can remember mum playing ‘I wanna dance with somebody’ in the car when I was 11 and I can sing a mean ‘I will always love you’ at KaraokeWhitney Houston.

She’s done pretty well with her new album ‘I Look to You’. It’s #1 on the US Billboard & European Albums charts and is #16 in Australia this week. I haven’t listen to the whole thing yet, but the short grabs I’ve heard sound promising.

Her first single of the same title is not a standout (it just creeps in to #5 on my chart this week) but look out for the next single ‘Million Dollar Bill’- more uptempo and more appealing. She hasn’t had a great Australian track record, so we’ll she how she goes. So far she’s out-pacing Madonna whose new single ‘Celebration’ (which is unusually weak for her) has dropped out of the US Top 100.
