With over 120 million albums and 50 million singles sold worldwide, Whitney Houston has already established an unparalleled legacy for herself. Yet rather than bathe in past glory, the singer who has influenced an entire generation of female vocalists now steps right back front and center with Just Whitney her first album of the 21st century. "This album for me is about surviving, raising a family, being a wife or girlfriend and all the challenges that go along with those things," says Ms. Houston. "These songs are more about creating a mood than about anything in particular." The A-list hitmakers and producers who contributed to this album were handpicked by Whitney and Arista President and CEO, Antonio "L.A." Reid. Kenneth 'Babyface' Edmonds, Missy Elliott, Kevin 'She'kspere' Briggs, Teddy Bishop and Gordon Chambers are among some of the producers who assisted Whitney in crafting an album that is a timely testament to her endurance as a musical icon. The album is a diverse blend of ballads including "Try It On My Own," (written by Babyface and Carole Bayer Sager), "My Love," in which Whitney duets with her husband Bobby Brown and a powerhouse remake of "You Light Up My Life" (originally released by Debbie Boone in 1977). Songs with hip grooves such as "Love That Man" and the old-school style jam "Things You Say" (which was written and produced by Missy Elliott) are also among the album's tracks.
