A never released Whitney Houston track recorded in 1990 has been remixed by the Norwegian DJ and music producer Kygo. It’s not a Whitney original but rather a cover of the popular 1980’s hit ‘Higher Love‘ by Steve Winwood. The track was supposed to land on her third album but she switched musical directions. The vocals were pulled out of Houston’s archive making it the first release since her death in 2012.
23 year old Rachel Shaps releases Learn My Lesson. The singer/songwriter combines folk-style storytelling with pop/alternative. Rachel’s vocals has a hint of New Orleans soul. Her grandmother is the legendary Eartha Kitt known for the 1953 recordings of “C’est si bon” and the Christmas smash “Santa Baby”, which were both US Top 10 hits. Check out the video here.
