New Whitney Houston Albums, Perfume & Cosmetics Lines, & More To Launch in 2023 Celebration of Her 60th Birthday, Estate Confirms

Published: Thursday 10th Nov 2022 by Rashad

Besides arguably owning the greatest voice to ever touch a microphone, Whitney Houston‘s impact touched many realms beyond music including movies, fashion, philanthropy, and Pop culture at large – a feat that’s not changed even ten years after her passing.

To ingeminate that fact, Pat Houston – executor of her the Pop icon’s estate – has announced plans to roll out a multi-faceted campaign in 2023 to celebrate the breadth of the diva’s influence.

More inside.

Featured inside the pages of the latest Billboard magazine, Pat talked at length about her partnership with music publishing and marketing extraordinaires Primary Wave and their journey to elongating interest in Whitney’s brand.

Her move to giving the group 50% ownership of Whitney’s assets (including publishing, master recording revenue, name, likeness, and brand) has proven lucrative in just the three years since their bond was formed.  Not only does Primary Wave boast it’s quadrupled the singer’s estate value, it plans to expand that revenue even further with a series of projects that will bring the ‘I Will Always Love You’ performer’s brand back to the forefront.

Having already scored a touchdown with the touring Whitney Houston hologram, the next set of releases include a perfume line, a MAC Cosmetics deal, and multiple books.  Most famously, the Pop icon’s life story will be told via a highly anticipated biopic, ‘I Wanna Dance with Somebody,’ due in December (click here to see the trailer).

“For 30 years of Whitney’s career, it was all about music — that was all she ever wanted to do, and it was only for a couple years prior to her passing that we started thinking about her brand beyond music,” Pat said. “The types of brands that we go for are the types of brands that Whitney would have gone through if she were here.”

As if the movie, fragrance, and cosmetic ventures aren’t enough, longtime fans of Whitney can also expect never-before-heard music to arrive on digital shelves in 2023.

Like we previously reported, two new albums – a live set and a Gospel LP – will be coming next year, as will a Broadway musical based on her life.

All projects are not only aimed at giving consumers a multi-dimensional view of the legendary songstress, but also to celebrate what would’ve been her 60th birthday and ensure the more negative aspects of her life never overshadow her immense talent and impact.

“With everything that’s going on right now, she’s still touching lives, and that’s what I want to do in a very positive way,” Pat says. “She should be remembered by her music and the work that she’s done in the community, not by her relationships. And the fact that all these things are happening proves that. It’s a clear path without any distractions to make things continue to happen for her legacy.”

    Oh hunnie, ain’t nobody here to hear a drug addict wheezing for breath through a microphone after smoking all that crack. She’d already lost her voice enough through crack smoking on her last released album. Bury this s**** along with her 11 missing teeth (if you ever find them).

      Pat Houston is a greedy CROOK! I remember they filmed a reality show shortly after Whitney passed. The dirt hadn’t even settled on her casket yet. She will do whatever to bring money to the estate. It doesn’t matter how much it tarnishes Whitney’s already sensitive legacy.

    The hologram tour was NOT a success. Now they’re looking at broadway again after The Bodyguard production came and went? That was truly one of the worst broadway shows I’ve ever seen. The biopic won’t be good either. All that this news tells me is that there is no limit to Pat’s greed. I’m not celebrating ANY of the upcoming projects. Makes me sad to even think about it.

    Pat Houston is a money hungry despicable human being that will do anything for a buck off of Whitney. She should be a shame of herself!!!

    I know Pat is WH’s sister in law but what in the world made WH come to that decision for her (Pat) to be over her estate? Out of all the family members she had, she chose Pat and it was the worst decision WH could make…I hope no one supports any of this

    Oh God! These comments are really mean. I will not add to them. But like it’s been said…I think Pat Houston Always wanted to keep HER name in the press to keep herself popular! Had Mrs. Cissy Houston presented these ideas..I’d be 100% for it. Or even her brother Gary for that matter. But it just seems weird that Pat Houston
