Having originally penned the single for Whitney Houston‘s 2009 album of the same name, then given an emotional tribute performance of the song at her funeral in February this year, friend and collaborator R. Kelly now appears on the new, official remix of “I Look You” in honour of the dearly departed icon.
Produced by Tricky Stewart and Harvey Mason, Jr, Houston’s original solo version featured as the lead single and title track from her 2009 album, whilst the new duet version with R. Kelly is to appear on an upcoming Whitney greatest hits compilation this Winter.
Set for release on November 13, the compilation titled I Will Always Love You – The Best of Whitney Houston will feature a selection of remastered Whitney classics plus an unreleased song by the name of “Never Give Up,” produced by Jermaine Dupri and Bryan-Michael Cox, alongside the new version of “I Look To You.”
