    It's not bad. But her voice deserves better than a generic House beat.

    What's the story with this - when did she record it?

    For I’m Your Baby Tonight, but it was ditched as they didn’t want her to be a covers artist - and presumably it wasn’t R&B enough. It was released as a bonus track in Japan, though.

    I kind of love the idea of using lesser Whitney vocals to create “new” music.

    This is alright, but it needs a big crescendo bit which it doesn’t quite have- the vocals do, but the music doesn’t match it. But that’s perhaps me rather than the youth of today.

    I properly love the original Steve Winwood song I never knew the story behind this cover until I looked it up on Wikipedia :disco:

    I'm all for a Kygo album full of bops by singers from BEYOND THE GRAVE

    i adore chaka's backing vocals on the original which i have to say surprisingly seems to be pretty highly regarded amongst my (younger) friends.

    not completely sure how i feel about this cover at all but for now i'll say it's all, sadly, very hologram tour.

    Imagine where it would have peaked if she could do BBC Breakfast

    Radio 2 playlist too. Seems to be gathering momentum.
    Is it anywhere on streaming or the official charts
