last night for I Look To You at the Lincoln Center in NYC. And here’s the lowdown:
Whitney looked incredibly fabulous at her comeback event in this extra fitted leathery knee length dress. Clive Davis hosted the entire glamorous affair and it was fabulous–folks were saying one of the best listening parties in years. Spotted chumming it up in the crowd: Martha Stewart, Gayle King, Steve Harvey, Monica, R. Kelly, AJ, Vivica Fox, Freddie Jackson, and every urban radio Program Director in the country, and tons of mainstream media outlets.
Alicia Keys & Swizz Beatz walked in hand in hand. The two were spotted being very affectionate all night–like they weren’t trying to hide anymore. I guess Mashonda signed those divorce papers finally. A. Keys & Swizzy danced and partied and videotaped themselves having fun to the track they produced for Whitney called “Million Dollar Bill”. Interesting.
They played 9 songs off the album. R. Kelly produced two songs on it–much to the crowd’s surprise. Whitney chose to put a throwback track on there and she chose “A Song For You.” We hear the crowd was standing up, crying, and just emotional when they heard it. Whitney’s speech was fab as she told everyone that her mother is the one who inspired her to do another album. And Whit’s voice is sounding great. Looks like the old Whitney is back!
