The quite anticipation for the new Whitney Houston and Mariah Carey single "When You Believe" is building. UK music trade magazine Music Week reports that the song will appear on three albums by the end of the year, Whitney Houston's Greatest Hits, Mariah Carey's Greatest Hits and the soundtrack to DreamWork's The Prince Of Egypt.
The more surprising news is that the song may not get a commercial release in the UK following calls from industry executives to test a radio only single. The first song to undergo this kind of marketing has to be a high profile song/artist. A duet featuring Whitney Houston and Mariah Carey cannot be any more high profile.
If the plans go ahead, this will mark the first time that a "single" is issued to radio only in the UK. If this marketing plan is adopted, a commercial release may also be forfeited in other territories including the US.
