Whitney is the second studio album by American pop/R&B singer Whitney Houston, released in the United States on June 2, 1987 by Arista Records as the follow-up to her best selling debut album, Whitney Houston. The album met the expectations of many people and was sensationally popular after its release.[1] With this album, Houston set historic records on the charts. It debuted at number one on the Billboard 200 chart the issue of June 27, 1987, becoming the first album by a female artist, and only the fifth album by a solo artist. The album remained at the top for eleven consecutive weeks, creating a record; the most cumulative weeks (twenty-five weeks) at number one on the albums chart by a female artist during 1980s.[3][4] Its first four singles—"I Wanna Dance with Somebody (Who Loves Me)", "Didn't We Almost Have It All", "So Emotional" and "Where Do Broken Hearts Go"—all peaked at number one on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, making her the first female artist to achieve that feat. In addition, along with three straight number one singles from the debut album, those of which that established an unprecedented seven consecutive number one hits by a performer, surpassing the Beatles and the Bee Gees.[5][6][7] As well as in United States, the album and the first single, "I Wanna Dance with Somebody (Who Loves Me)", were enormous hits worldwide, topping the charts in the United Kingdom, Canada, Australia, New Zealand and mainland Europe. She became an international star with this album, which made her the era's top female star.[8] Whitney was certified 9× Platinum by the RIAA on November 29, 1995.[9]
At the 30th Grammy Awards of 1988, the album received three nominations including Album of the Year, winning her second Grammy, "Best Pop Vocal Performance, Female" for "I Wanna Dance with Somebody (Who Loves Me)".[10]

Production

The album had a more pop feel than the first album. Narada Michael Walden who produced the infectious "How Will I Know", on the first album produced seven of the Whitney album's eleven tracks, three of which became Number 1's on Billboard Hot 100 Singles chart in 1987 and 1988. Kashif, the producer of "You Give Good Love" contributed "Where You Are". Michael Masser who was responsible for several hits from Whitney's debut album, contributed number 1 hit single "Didn't We Almost Have It All" and "You're Still My Man". "You're Still My Man" was originally recorded for the first album but was left off because Clive Davis felt it would be too much pop. Finally, Jellybean Benitez contributed "Love Will Save the Day".

Singles

Whitney produced a then-record-equalling four number one singles from one album, making it the first album by a female artist, and only the second album by a solo artist, behind Michael Jackson's Bad yielded five number ones. Whitney is one of only seven albums in music history to generate at least four number one Hot 100 hits from the same album. This feat, along with the three number ones from her debut album, also gave Houston seven consecutive number one songs, the most consecutive number ones by any musical act (a record she still holds).[5] The most consecutive #1's title was previously held by both The Beatles and the Bee Gees with six each.[5]

The fifth and final single to be released off the album, "Love Will Save the Day" peaked at number nine on the Hot 100 Singles chart. All five singles were top 5 Hot Black Singles hits, though none of them reached number one. I Know Him So Well was released as a Single in Spain, Germany & Australia.
Note: ^ It was a certification according to old criteria. In 1989, the sales thresholds for singles were reduced to 500,000 for Gold and 1,000,000 for Platinum, reflecting a decrease in sales of singles.[49]

Upon the album's debut, the critical receptions of Whitney were mixed. Most of critics admitted the commercial value of the album, but were critical of its standard pattern followed the predecessor's winning formula and the materials failed to reveal Houston's individuality. Jon Pareles of TIME criticized for something as formulaic on the album, stating that: "Whitney plays everything safe. It uses three of the debut album's producers. [...] There are bouncy, tinkly songs aimed at teen-agers, [...] and slow tunes aimed at sentimental adults, as before. Even the album title fits in with an Arista Records custom of separating female singers—Dionne, Aretha, Carly—from their last names." He was not positive of her vocals on it, commenting "What's more unsettling is that in the two years since Whitney Houston was released, the singer hasn't gotten much more expressive. For too many songs, she takes the patched-together style of the debut album further [...] as if she were singing in a second language." He added that "For all the passionate avowals of the lyrics, Ms. Houston and her producers keep emotion at bay."[57] Vince Aletti from Rolling Stone also gave an unfavorable review, stating "the formula is more rigorously locked in than before, and the range so tightly circumscribed that Houston's potential seems to have shrunk rather than expanded" and the record is "smug, repressive and ridiculously safe." Also, he made some sarcastic comments about the first single, "I Wanna Dance with Somebody (Who Loves Me)", calling it "How Will I Know II", spoken at Hollywood's blockbuster sequels.[54] Robert Hilburn, in his review for Los Angeles Times, regarded the album as "another commercial blockbuster", writing that the record is "a series of highly accessible selections that will work on a variety of radio formats." However, he expressed his considerable disappointment that Whitney did precious little to define the singer's vision, adding that she had a sensational voice but didn't assert much vocal character on it.[53] Dolores Barclay of The Associated Press complimented Houston on her excellent vocal ability: "Whitney Houston has a fine instrument and uses it well. Her voice takes us to places we know and to places we might want to forget and to places we dream about." But she, like other critics, was critical of the song material on the record, commenting "There is no depth, and not much excitement. Nor does this extremely talented song stylist and Grammy winner take risks and try something just a little daring."[50] St. Petersburg Times showed a favorable attitude toward her new album at large, stating "[Whitney] is, first and foremost, a product. It has been carefully designed, manufactured and packaged. As such, it's easy to be cynical about. But as products go, this is a pretty good one." They also praised her vocal sounds as follows: "Houston's voice sounds good, real good. [...] She's firmer, more confident. [...] Along with crystalline belting, Houston growls and scats and varies her timbre and phrasing."[56]
