Re: Whitney Houston: ENTIRE SONG (I Look 2 U)- first post

Sounds like a 90s song. Definitely an improvement over the other one. But I'm not feeling it that much. The whole inspirational theme is just meh. (I do love the adlibs on the bridge).

Re: Whitney Houston: ENTIRE SONG (I Look 2 U)- first post

it is kinda dated but it also sounds GREAT. The prob is that the last ballad to have a good run on the charts was Alicia's "no One" (i think) so i don't know how this will turn out for her (even if most ppl love it), not only that but she'll have to face Mariah's next single (a ballad as well) and Madonna's Celebration (although Madonna queened up her sound yet again so it will be massive in Europe but might not do that well in the US but than again she'll probably release Revolver ft Lil Wayne over there which is alot more urban and has the Hard Candy vibe soo ...)

Whitney
Madonna
Mariah

these 3 are releasing albums around the same time, this should be interesting

Dominika Cibulkova

Take note Mariah Carey
I'm glad you recognize this time around. She sounds amazing to me, but I'll admit I'm baised. But no one can argue that she looks incredible.

Re: Whitney Houston: ENTIRE SONG (I Look 2 U)- first post

The DIVA is back! I love the song. It's raw and honest. Her voice always gets to me even though it's not what it once was and she's still able to sing circles around 90% of the wannabe singers right now.

I really can't wait for 1 Sep.

Go Whitney!

Re: Whitney Houston: ENTIRE SONG (I Look 2 U)- first post

It's a nice song, but so far everything I've heard sounds a little boring.

And it's sad that her voice sounds the same as it did on Just Whitney.

Mariah pushed her album back because she has always had a complex when it comes to Whitney. She has always struggled with acceptance from the music industry.

Re: Whitney Houston: ENTIRE SONG (I Look 2 U)- first post

I disagree. I think the buzz that Whitney is getting will clearly over shadow her album on Sept. 1. She is pushing it back to Sept. 15 hoping that she will have a better chance of debuing at number 1.
