This week in 1990 (27 years ago), the single “I’m Your Baby Tonight” was released – it was the lead single and title track from her third studio album of the same name. The song was written and produced by L.A. Reid and Babyface and the Yvonne Turner mix was released in other countries. The song became a huge hit for Whitney, reaching the Top 10 worldwide and became her 8th number one single on the pop charts, her fourth number one on the R&B charts, and top of the Adult Contemporary chart as well, becoming her first single to top all three charts simultaneously! The video was directed by Julien Temple and had Whitney “channeling” Audrey Hepburn, Marlene Dietrich and The Supremes.
Hear the exclusive premiere of “This Will Be (An Everlasting Love),” performed live by Whitney Houston and Natalie Cole at Clive Davis’ Grammy Party in 2000. Originally recorded by Natalie in the 1970s, Whitney invited her to sing the song as an impromptu duet in tribute to Clive. Whitney closed her set that night with the song, telling Clive, “This will be an everlasting love, Mr. Davis.”
The performance is available now, exclusively on Apple Music, on Clive Davis – The Soundtrack of Our Lives Digital Deluxe Edition. The audio companion to the highly-acclaimed documentary chronicling the life and career of the legendary Clive Davis, The Soundtrack of Our Lives follows the incredible journey of the musical visionary whose ears and instincts helped him discover and develop a roster of phenomenal artists who’ve defined popular music and culture for more than half a century.
