July 23, 2009 (13 years ago today), “I Look To You” was released as the first U.S. single from Whitney’s album of the same name. Billboard magazine gave the song a positive review writing that she was “both vulnerable and in control..” and that the song “stands firmly in the tradition of her most emotive hits (‘Greatest Love of All,’ ‘I Will Always Love You’) and signals the long-awaited return of a true diva.” The video (shot in the New York area) has a very spiritual feel, with Whitney sitting on an apple box and a shower of flowers cascading around her towards the end.
