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

You can't please everybody. I think the song is out of the box in a very positive way. The message is clean, encouraging, and the beat is catchy. That is something radio has been missing in my opinion. She's not trying to fit into today's radio crap about sex, money, or taking off your clothes. Give the song a chance, maybe some of you will learn to appreciate good music and not stuff that will not be remembered in 5 years.

I didn't make the "cup of tea" remark until after you posted my name under the not liking it category. Whatever, say I don't like it...I don't really care and Whitney could give a damn...

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

Put me in the LOVE LOVE LOVE section.

MDB is so old school yet refreshing! This is what music is all about, great vocals and melody and NO auto-tuning. I'll take this track over any of the crap that's ruling the charts right now.

And I also love I Look To You too. Whitney's voice may not be what it once was but it's still powerful, passionate, haunting and sincere. The diction, phrasing and falsetto are undeniably Whitney's. I literally get goose bumps listening to the song at night. The ending reminds me a lot of I Will Always Love You.

I don't know about that. It wasn't horrible but I can't see it being a hit.

Looking forward to seeing her performing live.

I didn't like it. Crap song. People are being too nice and willing to accept anything just 'cause it's Whitney and her comeback.

Mariah's "Obsessed" is better. At least it has some hooks.

It is a crap song. She has lost the umph and the snippets for the rest of her album aren't promising. FLOP FLOP FLOP.

Re: Whitney Houston: ENTIRE Album available for listen online (first post)

- I'm loving those ALBUM snippets and this is going to easily one of the best albums of the year. Here's online feedback from a blog that posted the snippets:

http://www.thatgrapejuice.net/2009/0...31095266386906

At August 14, 2009 9:03 AM, Anonymous Anonymous
Words escape me. This has to be one of the best albums I have heard in a very long time. I can't wait to hear it in full. Her voice is sounding incredible and it sounds so contemporary, without losing who she is. "Million Dollar Bill", "Nothin' But Love", "Call You Tonight", "I Look to You" and "For the Lovers" are my favourites. Damn! That's half the album too. I'll be buying my copy

At August 14, 2009 9:05 AM, Anonymous Anonymous
Make love to this song TONIGHT, TONIGHT, TONIGHT!!!!! love the lyrics and Whitney's voice is crisp, clear, POWERFUL, strong, full of passion. Nippy is officially back! This album is a must buy.

i love WORTH IT!!!!!!!!!!!!! it will go straight to no.1 for sure!!!!

At August 14, 2009 9:08 AM, Anonymous Anonymous
Awwww, hell!!! Whitney came HARD, man!!! Way to go. This is a hot R&B album with a lot of crossover appeal. She still singing some tunes reminiscent of old, but some newer tracks that shows she can teach the newbies how to master a true R&B cut. HOT.

At August 14, 2009 9:08 AM, Anonymous Anonymous
great album and great song choice. definitely better than the title track and the ballads. seems like they saved the best for last!!!! Clever strategy. tryin to set us up making us believe that whit whit's voice is no longer there and then BOMB her voice is back. I mean, vocally no one ever tops this woman..even in the year 2009 and this woman is like 40 something and still outsings all the chicks out there. Calling U tonight and Worth it are definitely hits.

to that one person who is so obviously craving attention... sad sad lambs

Re: Whitney Houston: ENTIRE Album available for listen online (first post)

^I wasn't talkin' about you. I was talkin' about the lamb who's made five different post all saying the same thing about not liking Whitney and wishing for her to flop. You're just a person giving an honest an opinion with no agenda- I know that. I can tell the difference.

Speakin' of honest people just giving opinions (good and bad)- here are more from that grape juice:

I absolutely love "Worth It" and "Calling You Tonight". Potential #1 hits if promoted properly.

Now I can understand why most people at the listening parties were lovin' the album.

My favorite snippets were:
Nothin But Luv
Worth It
For the Lovers
Call You Tonight

Holy crap, Whitney is back BIG TIME!

The album sounds amazing.

I love the sound of Call You Tonight. Sounds beautiful!

I Got You and For the Lovers sound good too. Can't wait for the album.

My only problem is that it only has 11 songs
