R. Kelly Looked to Whitney Houston

“I Look to You” marked Whitney Houston’s comeback this summer. WelcheMusic found this clip on YouTube which has circulated for a while. It shows R. Kelly in an MTV interview about writing the track. He says it’s for Whitney Houston, but this was shot before her comeback was announced.

To date, the song has been issued almost all around the world. It premiered in North America at the end of July, where it peaked at No.19 on the Billboard Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs. It also peaked at No.70 on the Billboard Hot 100. The song was, however, issued as a double A-side single with “Million Dollar Bill” in Germany, where it peaked at No.41.

For some reason, the single release of “I Look to You” was delayed until Dec.14 in the UK. Instead, “Million Dollar Bill” reached No.5 back in October. The singer even performed a dance remix of the track live on X-Factor. “I Look to You” only managed to reach No.115 on the singles track on the back of the December release.
