The first song to be taken from The Best Of Whitney Houston album, which hits the shelves on November 13th, has hit Youtube. I Look To You, which was originally the title track of the departed Diva's last album, has been reworked and now features vocals from its writer, R.Kelly.
With themes of personal struggle and faith, I Look To You was a fitting comeback song for a star that had been dogged by so much controversy in her career. However, knowing how the tragic tale ended, I look To You has forever since taken on a bittersweet quality; with the lyric, "The rain is falling, defeat is calling, I need you to set me free, take me far away from the battle", being particularly moving within this new, unfortunate context.
