the prob is that everything that she has dropped after Touch My Body has flopped, they can't affod to release an album with no hits anymore.


Mariah never had good opening weeks(only time she did was with E=MC2 i think) , Mariah's albums have longevity they stay in the charts for a long ass time (when they don't flop), besides, she was going to release her album first so Whitney's album wouldn't change a thing on her debut status as there was a week between them

Obsessed isn't doing badly by any means. It's still steadily racking up radio impressions at a consistent pace. The difference is that they didn't time the download release with the peak airplay which didn't translate into higher billboard position (like they did with TMB and other #1s). Still, #10 doesn't make a song a flop and it is shaping up to be a decent radio hit.

it's doing poorly for someone with Mariah chart status. Unlike It's Like That Obsessed was not meant to warm up the radio for the next single ,Obsessed was meant to be a hit and it isn't.

the thing is, Obsessed isn't even getting half of the spins TMB got and it peaked on itunes at what 4 or 3 (down to 20ish now). her airplay is stabilizing more then increasing imo (she's behind 6m compared to last week) because urban is giving the song spins while pop isn't doing much with it (pop might start to pick up the song but i don't see them doing it specially when they didn't even support TMB all that much).
it didn't reach top 10 and it's probably going to end up between 15 and 22 in the charts this week...
she needs to let this tiresome act go and get back to doing pop music.

anyway back to Whitney's single is getting BIG support from radio specially urban

With only three days counting toward the single's tally, 'I Look To You' is the fastest growing song on the Urban AC charts. It debuts for the week at #18 on the chart.

Based on Urban airplay her song will debut on this weeks R&B chart (again this is only after 3 days of airplay).

More good news for Whitney fans- Album gets EARLY RELEASE:


With the excitement building for the release of Whitney Houston's first album in seven years, it's been announced that fans can get I Look to You sooner than they thought!

The album, which was expected to hit store shelves on September 1, will now be made available on August 31. In addition, those who can't wait another month can download a free song starting today at www.whitneyhouston.com.

Meanwhile, ET was recently with the songstress as she talked about her highly anticipated album.

"I just think that the songs themselves will speak to you when you hear them, and you'll understand where I am [and] some of the changes I've gone through for the better," Whitney told ET.

I love the promotion they're doing for this album.

you can tell by the production , promotion and the fact that ILT was released during the lowest part of her career where radio was not giving her any spins and she was seen as dead and gone. They needed a strategy and that's what ITL was ,the glue between radio and WBT.
Obsessed was meant to be what a lead single is meant to be a hit for the album to start of with good sales , it didn't and that's why the album release date changed

i don't know when it turn into her i'm just replying

but back to whitney

Quote:
Here is a review of her new album "I Turn To You" from rap it up magazine. Also - if you visit www.whitneyhouston.com - you can download her new single for free!!!

They also pushed up her release date - it is now scheduled to be released August 31st

1. “Million Dollar Bill”
Swizz Beatz/Alicia Keys

As we first reported here, Swizz Beatz produced this track. Alicia Keys wrote it after personally asking Clive to write for Whitney’s album. The song doesn’t have a typical Swizz sound and feels more old-school R&B. It puts you in a good mood, but don’t let the title fool you. This is not an attempt at being a hip-hop club banger. It was the favorite for many. No doubt this will become a single.

2. “Nothin’ But Love”
Danja

Uptempo, danceable, hand-clapping beat. Whitney’s vocals are on prominent display as she belts out several long runs. Urban radio will eat this up.

3. “Call You Tonight”
Stargate/Johnta Austin

This was a contender for the lead single. It features a guitar riff common in Stargate productions (“With You” and “Irreplaceable”). “I wish that I could stay, but I gotta go/ Let me call you tonight, just as soon as I get home,” she sings.

4. “I Didn’t Know My Own Strength”
David Foster/Diane Warren

A version of this previously leaked to the Internet. Clive likened the power ballad to “I Will Always Love You.” It was recorded after her separation from Bobby Brown and tells of triumph in the face of diversity. Clive told Diane Warren, “You’ve written one of your great copyrights.”

5. “Like I Never Left” feat. Akon
Akon/Claude Kelly

Another track that leaked last year. The version that was played sounded more complete with added bass. Clive said Whitney wanted an island song, so they reached out to Akon. Clive started to dance to this one, which was pretty entertaining in itself. We didn’t love this when we first heard it, but it has grown on us considerably.

6. “Salute”
R. Kelly

Militaristic, marching beat. R. Kelly also has his vocals featured (“Eh eh eh”). One of our personal faves. “I’m a soldier girl/ In this world/ I stand alone/ I can be strong/ I walked the lines/ I made it home/ It’s good to know without you I made it.” Whitney even throws in an LL Cool J reference: “Don’t call it a comeback, I’ve been here for years.”

7. “I Look to You”
R. Kelly/Tricky Stewart/Harvey Mason Jr.

Powerful piano ballad that sums up the album. “When all my strength is gone, I look to you,” she sings. “This song says all I wanted to say,” explains Whitney of the title track, which is also the first single.

8. “Worth It”
Eric Hudson/Johnta Austin

Midtempo piano ballad. “I know somebody’s gonna make love to this song tonight,” she coos. A great groove and the dark horse of the album.

9. “A Song for You”
Leon Russell/Harvey Mason Jr.

A cover of Leon Russell’s 1970 song. Starts off slow with a piano intro, then speeds up towards the middle. Some of the audience got up and danced when they heard this. An unexpected take on a classic.

Whitney Houston’s 7th studio album I Look to You arrives September 1.


i am VERY afraid of the Swizz Beatz, Akon and Stargate tracks x_x

Danja but i wonder what the track sounds like ...
