When it comes to legendary singers, you can’t get any better than Whitney Houston. As a matter of fact, she became an instant legend after her debut album dropped. 35 years ago today, Whitney Houston released her self-titled debut to the world. Miss Houston went on to sell over 22 million records worldwide, making it one of the bestselling records ever. By far, it became the best debut selling album ever. She released a total of six singles from the album that had ten tracks. The album won countless awards and many put it amongst the greatest records ever. Unfortunately, Whitney Houston passed away a little over eight year ago, she will never be forgotten. Thinking About You, You Give Good Love, All at Once, Saving All My Love For You, How Will I Know and Greatest Love of All. Those 6 songs were the singles she released.
In honor of its 25th anniversary, the album was reissued as Whitney Houston – The Deluxe Anniversary Edition on January 26, 2010, an expanded edition with five bonus tracks including the acappella version of “How Will I Know” and the original 12-inch remixes, a booklet tracking the history of the original album, along with a DVD of live performances and interviews by Whitney Houston and Clive Davis. Whitney Houston spent 14 non-consecutive weeks at the top of Billboard 200 chart from March until late June 1986, which was short of one week for Carole King’s record of 15 weeks for the longest running #1 album by a female artist. It was the second-longest running No.1 album among the debut albums in Billboard history. Check out the track listing below and it’s followed by the stream links.
