THE voice that launched a thousand X-Factor contestants that is Whitney Houston returns with a whole new studio album next week - her first since 2002.
And as obvious as it is to say it, with I Look To You, Houston, we have a problem.
The album starts off in an awesome fashion with Million Dollar Bill, which exudes old school cool and is reason enough for a comeback.
But as you could predict, it soon all turns to slush with wet ballads like I Look To You, and then cringeworthy make-out tracks like Worth It.
And who thought it would be good to match the vocal talent of Whitney with chipmunk-voiced rapper Akon on Like I Never Left?
So on the evidence of I Look To You, nowadays it's better to look elsewhere for your diva fix.
