36 years later and the incomparable talent of Whitney Houston is still resounding in this fresh take and contemporary polish of her hit single “How Will I Know” by the UK electronic-dance producers Clean Bandit!
Words couldn’t relate the incredible talent of Whitney Houston. In 1985 the vocal powerhouse made her stunning debut gave Arista Records a RIAA-certified Diamond hit, and the hit single “How Will I Know” crossed over from R&B, into mainstream and even brought Houston her first MTV VMA award for Best Female Video that year. It was her second #1 single on the Billboard 100 charts and will launch Whitney Houston into the stratosphere as one of the greatest performers of all time.
Now to commemorate the single, the UK act Clean Bandit responsible for the dance hit “Rather Be” that launched the commercial success of Jess Glynne, another remarkable vocalist, have given their spin on Houston’s “How Will I Know” and reimagined it for today! The best part of the mix between these pairings, is how effectively Clean Bandit has blended its electronic sensibilities and classically inspired instrumentation to elevate Houston’s single without compromising the original sounds feel and energy.
