Whitney Houston – “Whatchulookinat” (Review)

WHITNEY_HOUSTON_WHATCHU+LOOKIN+AT-435465

Whitney Houston’s last studio album, 1998’s ”My Love Is Your Love,” was a bold career reinvention, making the pop/R&B juggernaut sound fresh in a hip-hop-centric world.

And the paranoid, Jacko-like lyrics about press persecution highlight her recent troubles, which she should be helping us to forget.
