From The Vault: Whitney Houston – ‘It’s Not Right, But It’s Okay’

Published: Sunday 24th Aug 2008 by Sam
Whitney Houston’s 1999 smash ‘It’s Not Right, But It’s Okay’ serves as this week’s classic From The Vault video. Both the track and its accompanying clip are as ‘current’ today as they ever were. Good stuff:

I was discussing with a friend recently; as Whitney’s appeal has never been centered around sex or provocativeness – ala the Janet’s and Madonna’s (who are great in their own rights), she has proven that by simply dropping great tracks such as this, she need not compromise her trademark style to appeal to the masses – they had no choice but to listen. A good position to be in with her ‘comeback’ album on the horizon.

    This was Whitney’s comeback, but everyone knows this video was rushed and rubbish it’s as if the record company wasn’t sure because every video after had more money pumped into it.
    Badd ass album! Especially Heartbreak Hotel

    God she looks hot in this video. The song is great the video is awesome. Whitney Houston is one of the greatest singers this world will ever see. We are all blessed to even her one note of her singing. Her voice is angelic. I swear I see flashing lights and wings when she opens her mouth. I love this woman. I am ready for this comeback. The world needs Whitney Houston. I definitely need her. Just listening to her music elevates my mood. Whitney, honey, you are loved and missed.

    The world of music does need Whitney Houston. To me Whitney wasn’t just a legendary voice, she also has a natural charisma on screen and stage. If you watch a lot of Whitney videos they do a lot of really close ups because directors know she shines on screen. i will always love Whitney.

    this was a classic song. the video is simple yet very classy and executed. she looks very powerful and it suits the lyrics, she’s an independent women who’s moving on from all the b*******.

    i used to bump this song beavy, and it’s still hot to this day. i hope she gets her s*** together and gets off of the white girl.

    Whitney will always be the greatest voice. Although she doesn’t sound the way she used to, she’s still miles above the rest. As for the sexual aspects of Janet, Madonna AND Mariah: Janet’s was a natural progression because she wasn’t always that; she sold without the sexual image first. Janet has toned her imagery down some now. You don’t see her b****** and stomach like we did with the last album. Madonna just wants to get noticed. If you notice, she’s back to her sexual imagery again, just toned down. Mariah needs something to sell, cuz her voice ain’t hittin on it anymore and she’s a terrible performer.
