The legacy of Whitney Houston, one of music's most beloved singers, continues with the November 13, 2012 release of I Will Always Love You - The Best of Whitney Houston (RCA).
Leading the way is the Clive Davis produced track "I Look To You," a brand new duet version featuring previously unreleased vocals by Whitney and newly recorded vocals by R. Kelly. Grammy Award winner R. Kelly wrote and produced the original version from Houston's last studio album of the same name. The single is currently posted on Whitney Houston's official website and available for purchase at iTunes, Amazon and all digital service providers.
"The duet version of 'I Look To You' between Whitney and R. Kelly is purely and simply a knockout. I believe that everyone will remember the first time they heard it and I think a new classic is being born," states Clive Davis, the album's producer and Chief Creative Officer, Sony Music Entertainment Worldwide.
I Will Always Love You - The Best of Whitney Houston will also include "Never Give Up," another never before released song by Houston; written by Jermaine Dupri, Bryan-Michael Cox and Johnta Austin and produced by Dupri and Cox. Rounding out this first ever single disc greatest hits collection are the original versions of the chart topping, award winning hit songs that solidified Houston as "The Voice," including "I Will Always Love You," "Saving All My Love For You," "I Wanna Dance With Somebody," and more.
