Not to be confused with the early rock & roll classic made famous by Elvis Presley, “Heartbreak Hotel” was the second single from Whitney’s 1998 album, My Love Is Your Love, which was certified quadruple platinum in the U.S. and sold an estimated 10 million copies worldwide! The single was certified platinum in its own right after hitting #1 on Billboard’s Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs Chart, garnered two Grammy nominations, and features guest vocals from Faith Evans and Kelly Price – both of whom joined Whitney for the striking and vividly colored video, itself nominated for ‘Best R&B Video’ at the 1999 MTV Video Music Awards.
Whitney Houston has enjoyed many dance-flavored hits throughout her career and this week we highlight perhaps her ultimate dance song, “I Wanna Dance With Somebody (Who Loves Me)”. The video opens in muted black and white tones, with Whitney finishing a show for her fans; but as the first verse begins, the clip suddenly explodes into dazzling color. Full of vibrancy thereafter, this video is all about Whitney having fun, including over-the-top hair and fantastic dance segments galore, making it one of Whitney’s most widely recognized videos. Not surprisingly, “I Wanna Dance With Somebody” hit #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 the same day Whitney’s second album, Whitney, debuted at #1 – the first time this was ever accomplished by a female artist. The song was also an important step in Whitney’s career as it became her first platinum-certified single and received a 1988 Grammy Award for “Best Female Pop Vocal Performance”.
