LISTEN: New Whitney Houston & R.Kelly Duet Of “I Look To You”

Whitney Houston’s legacy is being honoured with a newly-released duet with R. Kelly. The song is a new version of “I Look to You”, the title track of her 2009 album, which R.Kelly wrote for Houston and performed at her funeral earlier this year.

Clive Davis, Sony Music’s chief creative officer and Houston’s longtime mentor, says the previously unused vocal tracks were “made at an unscheduled recording session while she was working on her final album”. She had stopped smoking for two weeks while getting dental work done in Los Angeles, and the effect on her voice was “striking”.

“She [Houston] did two verses and a chorus, and it’s just terribly sad that this incredible, unique treasure is not here anymore”, Davis said.

“I really wanted the public to hear Whitney with her voice intact”, he says.

“Tragically, it shows what her voice could have sounded like if, as she had promised me that week she passed away, that she was going to give up cigarettes entirely”.

The song will be included on the 18-track tribute album, I Will Always Love You: The Best of Whitney Houston, which is scheduled for a November 13 release.
