Whitney Houston’s ‘I Look To You’ Album Was Released This Day In 2009

Whitney Houston - I Look To You album

August 31, 2009 – Whitney’s I Look To You album was released in the U.S., where it debuted at #1 on the Billboard 200 and achieved the highest first-week sales of her career in the SoundScan era. The album’s themes of personal reflection and overcoming adversity were embraced by fans and critics. The Los Angeles Times wrote: “Certain voices stand like monuments upon the landscape of 20th century pop, defining the architecture of their times, sheltering the dreams of millions and inspiring the climbing careers of countless imitators. Whitney Houston owns one of those voices.”

The album was released three days earlier in Europe and a few weeks later in the UK, hitting the top of the charts in several countries. It has sold more than 2.5 million copies worldwide and spawned two hit singles — the title track and “Million Dollar Bill.”
