Are you feeling nostalgic right now? Need a good song to comfort yourself, right? Search not far, we here at All Naija Entertainment got you covered with this amazing song from Whitney Houston titled “I Look To You“.

I Look to You” is a pop-soul song performed by American recording artist Whitney Houston, from her seventh studio album of the same name. It was released as a worldwide promotional single and as the first US single from the album on July 23, 2009 on US radio following highly favorable reviews at pre-release album listening parties.

The single is one of two songs written by R. Kelly which appear on the album and was produced by Emanuel Kiriakou, Tricky Stewart and Harvey Mason Jr.. Following its preview on US radio the single was released fully for airplay on July 27, 2009. On July 30, just one week after its premiere (and 3 days after its promotional release) the song reached number 19 on the Billboard Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Chart, becoming her 30th top 20 hit. The song has since become her highest charting single in the United States in nine years, charting at #70.

On February 18, 2012, R. Kelly (who wrote “I Look to You”) performed the song at Houston’s homegoing at New Hope Baptist Church in Newark, New Jersey. The service was broadcast and streamed live to a worldwide audience.
Initially Vibe magazine reported that another song titled “I Didn’t Know My Own Strength” penned by Diane Warren and produced by David Foster would be released as the lead single. However, on July 14, 21 and 23 Houston held 3 pre-release album listening parties in which 9 of the 11 songs where previewed, “Call You Tonight” was described as a possible lead single by mentor Clive Davis. Swizz Beatz producer of the song “Million Dollar Bill” (written by Alicia Keys) said that his record was definitely a potential comeback record and with critical acclaim at all three parties it was widely expected that the song would succeed the others as the lead single. However both Rap-Up and Houston’s official website have confirmed the title song will indeed be the first US single whilst “Million Dollar Bill” is being released as the worldwide lead single (second US single, almost simultaneously with first single). “I Look to You” was the second single from the album in the United Kingdom, where it was released on December 14, 2009.

The video for “I Look to You” premiered on September 10, 2009 on Whitney Houston’s official website and on Entertainment Tonight.

The video, also directed by Melina Matsoukas, features the singer in front of a plain beige and gray backdrop with different angles of her. She is sitting on an applebox with a spotlight focused on her. Toward the end of the video, a shower of flowers are shown falling all around her. Houston is wearing a white dress in mood of the beige and grey background. The significance of the number was her humbleness to the Lord.

The song debuted at number eighty six on the Billboard Hot 100 and two weeks later peaked at number 70. The song also did well on the Adult R&B Songs chart peaking at number two the week of October 3, 2009. It spent six weeks on the Hot 100 and as of May 2012 has sold nearly 298,000 copies in the US. The song has sold over 550,000 copies worldwide and has since been Certified Gold by the RIAA.

The song was later re-recorded as a duet between Houston and R. Kelly and was released as a single on September 25, 2012, seven months after Houston’s death. This version marks Houston’s final single, and third posthumous release. One day before the release, a sneak peek of this version debuted on Ryan Seacrest’s website. The duet version of the song was released from and to promote Houston’s posthumous compilation album I Will Always Love You: The Best of Whitney Houston. – Wikipedia

Some Quotable Lyrics

As I lay me down,
Heaven hear me now.
I’m lost without a cause
After giving it my all.

Winter storms have come
And darkened my sun.
After all that I’ve been through
Who on earth can I turn to?

I look to you.
I look to you.
After all my strength is gone,
In you I can be strong
I look to you.
I look to you.
And when melodies are gone,
In you I hear a song.
I look to you.
