The full version of the title track from Whitney Houston’s eagerly anticipated new album ‘I Look To You’ premiered on US radio yesterday. Note: It’s important to stress that the Swizz Beats produced ‘Million Dollar Bill’ is still slated to be the record’s lead single. Making an educated guess, there may be a chance this will be a dual-first single or possibly the follow-up to ”Bill’.
About the R. Kelly penned song. echoing my thoughts upon hearing the snippet earlier this week, Whitney’s vocals, albeit ‘2009 Whitney’, is the gas which drives the vehicle that is this awesome song. Rich, gritty, powerful and emotive, Whitney’s delivers the lyrics in such a manner that makes one really believe what she’s singing about. Paired with the fact that her hardships have been played out so publicly, this really helps give the song an aura of authenticity – a word almost entirely missing in today’s chart hits.
