Whitney Houston's Having 'One Of Those Days'
(10/29/02, 10 a.m. ET) -- Whitney Houston's "One Of Those Days" impacted at radio Monday (October 28) as the new release from the singer's album, Just Whitney, which is expected to hit stores during the holiday season.
The feel-good ballad was produced by She'ksphere, who is known for providing music for TLC's "No Scrubs" and Destiny's Child's "Bills, Bills, Bills." "One Of Those Days" interpolates portions of the Isley Brothers' "Between The Sheets."
She'ksphere and Houston began working together in early 2002. In February, She'ksphere explained to LAUNCH his plans for Houston. "I want Whitney to appeal to Whitney's people," She'ksphere said. "I'm going back to the essence. I'm not trying to do anything outlandish. It's just great songs, great melodies, simple grooves, so that when you first hear it from the get-go whether you're 15 years old or you're 46."
She'ksphere, who has also worked with Mariah Carey and Pink, added that Houston is the "cream of the crop." "Whenever she opens her mouth, just even to do a little ad-lib or to even ask if she could do it this way, everything sounds incredible," She'ksphere said. "She's truly a molded individual in the singing game. She has it locked down to a tee."
Houston's first single "Whatchulookinat?" was released in August.
