On June 2, 1987 (34 years ago) Whitney Houston’s second album Whitney was released and debuted at #1 around the world, including the Billboard 200, where she became the first female artist to debut at #1 in the U.S. This follow-up to her best-selling debut album had five U.S. singles, four of which peaked at #1 — and when combined with three previous #1’s from her debut album, gave Whitney an unprecedented seven consecutive #1 hits on the Hot 100, a record still held to this day.
