As the official release of Whitney Houston’s much anticipated new LP ‘I Look To You’ draws nearer, we here at That Grape Juice want to give those still holding out from listening to the ‘surfaced version’ of the record another preview of what to expect.
Produced by Danja, ‘For The Lovers’ is undeniably one of, if not the, album’s best track. The uptempo smash-in-waiting is an awesome fusion of the 80’s synthesised sound and today’s popular Urban music. Hence this club banger sits comfortably beside Whitney’s uptempo classics such as How Will I Know’ and ‘I Wanna Dance With Somebody’, whilst also managing to sound *very* current and chartable. Ms. Houston also sounds great here, lacing the track, almost effortlessly with her trademark “isms” (adlibs, runs etc). Why this wasn’t picked as the first single is truly beyond me. That said, Arista and Nippy’s team need to know that this has to be a single ASAP. It just has to!
Hit or Miss?
