Re: Whitney Houston: Million Dollar Bill- BRAND NEW SONG!!! (see first post)

Did Neyo write anything on this album? He such a good songwriter and would have wrote her a beautiful song.
Her voice just can't facilitate them anymore. The power-ballads were basically a showcase for "The Voice". Sadly The Voice is gone - but it's actually an opportunity for Whitney to go in a different direction. A less spectacular and understated ballad can say just as much as a really powerful one, and who is really doing them these days? I wouldn't expect I Look to You to be number one, but I hope it does well and that it offers some diversity to the charts.

(2)You stans may as well sleep well tonight because tomorrow the a replay of Lucie's winning moment over and over again will haunt your dreams for weeks to come
(3)The stars have aligned perfectly for the upset of the 21st century. All the best Garbine
(4) There is no path to victory for Williams.Keys wins in straight easy sets.
