Oh darn! I wish I could say that I love this song, but I don’t. And, it has nothing to do with the singing talent. I mean between the late Whitney Houston and Jordin Sparks, there was more than enough vocal power with which to work.
But, at the end of the day, the song is just so undeserving of their vocal gifts. It goes no where, is repetitive, melodically vacant in composition and texture – just a great big mess.
Given that it is the last song that Ms. Houston recorded, I was hoping for something more iconic, more legendary.
I understand that the composer didn’t realize at the time that Ms. Houston would be gone shortly after this song was written and recorded, but, still, we are talking about Whitney Houston here. It calls for a song with substance, not fluff.
The song was premiered on Ryan Seacrest’s radio show today.
What do you think of this song? Agree or disagree with me? It left me empty and sad after I listened to it.
