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.
