Can Whitney Really Come Back?

Celebrity and wealth often cloud even the greatest performers objectivity. Most artists don't realize that 20 to 25 years have past since they hit the scene and gave us some of their greatest performances. In addition time takes it's toll on even the greatest of our artists. Whitney Houston makes her highly anticipated comeback with the release of "I Look To You" on August 31st, and will be appearing on Oprah Winfrey's show on September 14th. Her new single, the title track was produced by R. Kelly, and honestly is a very boring song when compared to Whitney's previous hits.

I guess at a certain point, even artists lose their touch. Hopefully the rest of Whitney's new album is better than "I Look To You", Whitney needs this comeback to be successful, but at best it will probably be a lukewarm comeback with modest sales. Expectations need to be low for this project simply due to the changes in the music business, and will Whitney's long time fans even buy her record.
