Whitney Houston's second album sported a flirtier, sexier album cover and a shortened title, and, somewhat improbably, it became an even bigger hit than her 1985 debut. WHITNEY featured an impressive four Number One hits ("I Wanna Dance with Somebody (Who Loves Me)," "Didn't We Almost Have It All," "Where Do Broken Hearts Go," and "So Emotional") and a fifth that went Top Ten, "Love Will Save the Day." Building on what had worked so well on her first record, the dance tracks are frothier and endearingly lighter, and the ballads are bigger and more dramatic, highlighting Houston's genuinely impressive vocal talents without resorting to overly bombastic singing (as she would on later albums). ...See Full Description

||Her 2nd hottest album!!|
Whitney did it again with this release as her follow-up to her first album almost two years earlier. She is really terrific in "I Wanna Dance.

|Excellent follow up|
Whitney does it again, just 2 years after her debut in 1985, she hit big with this new sound in '87.
By dillonc91 (Columbus, Ohio)
Whitney Houston has a talent that truly undescribeable because there are no words powerful enough to describe her powerful voice. She surely shows her talent on this album!!!
