When Whitney Houston passed on the 11th February 2012, the world lost one of the greatest vocalists of possibly all time. Fans were left heartbroken at the thought of never hearing that perfect vibrato again. But, seven years later and we are able to listen to polished and addictive Kygo and Whitney collaboration of the 1986, Steve Winwood cover “Higher Love”. Originally recorded in 1990, the pop anthem was due to go on her third album I’m Your Baby Tonight but shelved due to a decision by legendary music producer and A&R executive Clive Davis, to avoid Houston being seen as a cover artist.
“The only place it was released was as a bonus cut in Japan.” recalls Clive.
Kygo’s slick remixed version ensures Whitney and Kygo are catapulted into new musical heights with this contemporary tropical house version. Turn up the volume to this and enjoy.
