From The Vault: Whitney Houston – ‘My Love Is Your Love’

Published: Sunday 10th May 2020 by Joe

Today’s From The Vault pick is dedicated to all the loving mothers and mother figures of the world.

Through the words of ‘My Love Is Your Love’ by the legendary Whitney Houston, we salute you all.

Issued as the fourth single from her fourth studio album of the same name, the track was helmed by the mighty Wyclef Jean and his frequent collaborator Jerry Wonda. The reggae-tinged tune features a very young Bobbi Kristina – daughter of Houston and Bobby Brown – ad-libing (“sing Mommy”).

Centered around an indestructible love that knows no bounds, it was a hit in the US peaking at #4 on the Billboard Hot 100 and reaching the Top 10 in many countries like the UK and Germany where it charted at #2.

What do you do, when the power goes out in NYC and you’re one of the greatest entertainments of all time? You crash an impromptu block party and you make the crowd go crazy.

Directed by Kevin Bray, the song’s visual displayed the eternal (and effortless) “cool” Houston oozed. With her impeccable style, she showed balance between stylish, trendy, and age-appropriate. Wyclef can be seen throughout the video hyping up the audience to what went on to become a classic song.

Though it’s bittersweet listening to ‘My Love’ today, we can’t help but celebrate its sheer beauty and the even deeper meaning it packs now (Whitney and Bobbi Kristina).

So, to all the women who have raised us and continue to do so, who have actioned unconditional love, and who shepherd and show us the way forward, we thank you, appreciate you and love you. Endlessly.
