According to music mogul Clive Davis, R&B queen Whitney Houston will release an album later this year. Speaking during Billboard’s Music & Money Symposium at New York’s St. Regis Hotel, Davis said four songs have been completed for the as-yet-untitled project, and four more will be put to tape later this month. “We’re on track for a holiday release,” he said. “We’re not going to compromise who she is to fit into today’s hip-hop radio market. The public wants Whitney material.” Tracks earmarked for the album have been produced or written by will.i.am, Sean Garrett and Akon, who told Billboard.com last year, “The voice is there; I don’t think anyone could ever take that from her. As long as we apply that voice to hit records, she’ll be right back where she left off.” Houstonâs last original release was in 2002.
