Whitney (album)

Whitney is the second studio album by American R&B/ pop singer Whitney Houston, released in the United States on June 2, 1987 by Arista Records as the follow-up to her best selling debut album, Whitney Houston. The album catapulted her to international fame. Whitney was certified 9× platinum by the RIAA on November 29, 1995.

The album met the expectations of many people and was sensationally popular after its release. With this album, Houston set historic records on the charts. It debuted at number one on the Billboard 200 chart the issue of June 27, 1987, becoming the first album by a female artist, and only the fifth album by a solo artist to do so. The album remained at the top for eleven consecutive weeks, creating a record; the most cumulative weeks (25 weeks) at number one on the albums chart by a female artist during the 1980s.

Its first four singles—" I Wanna Dance with Somebody (Who Loves Me)", " Didn't We Almost Have It All," " So Emotional" and " Where Do Broken Hearts Go"—all peaked at number one on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, making her the first female artist to achieve that feat. Along with three straight number one singles from the debut album, they established an unprecedented seven consecutive number one hits by a performer, surpassing the Beatles and the Bee Gees. As well as in United States, the album and the first single, "I Wanna Dance with Somebody (Who Loves Me)," were hits worldwide, topping the charts in the United Kingdom, Canada, Australia, New Zealand and mainland Europe.

At the 30th Grammy Awards of 1988, the album received three nominations including Album of the Year, winning her second Grammy, " Best Pop Vocal Performance, Female" for "I Wanna Dance with Somebody (Who Loves Me)." It has been announced that it will be re-released as a special anniversary edition by Legacy Recordings alongside The Bodyguard: Original Soundtrack Album. The album has sold over 25 million copies worldwide.

Canadian R&B singer Deborah Cox performs all of Houston's vocals in the film, including " I Will Always Love You", " I'm Your Baby Tonight", " I'm Every Woman", " Jesus Loves Me" and " The Greatest Love of All".
