Whitney Houston's New Song Will Remind You Why You Fell In Love With Her Angelic Vocals

In this house, we stan Queen Whitney. 👑

It goes without saying that Whitney Houston is an iconic pop/R&B diva.

But in case you needed proof, we have the receipts.

During her lifetime, the singer released hits like "How Will I Know," "The Greatest Love of All," "I'm Your Baby Tonight," and, of course, "I Will Always Love You."

Her legendary discography is unmatched, TBH.

Sadly, the Grammy award-winner died in February 2012 at the age of 48.

On Friday morning, an unreleased recording featuring Whitney's powerhouse vocals was released.

The track, a cover of Steve Winwood’s 1986 single “Higher Love,” was initially recorded in the early '90s.


The new version has been remixed by DJ Kygo ("It Ain't Me") and it's the gay bop I never knew I needed.

In the song, Whitney talks about yearning for a "higher love."

"Bring me a higher love / Bring me a higher love / Bring me a higher love / Where's that higher love / I keep thinking of," she sings. 🎵Same, Whitney, Same!

Add in Kygo's infectious instrumentals and you've got a certified hit for the gay clubs.

I hereby demand every DJ to play this in honor of Pride Month coming to a close. We deserve nice things!!!

Take a listen to Whitney and Kygo's cover/remix of "Higher Love" ahead. If you need me, I'll be over here blasting it on repeat this weekend. 🏳️‍🌈
