    Million Dollar Bill was a bona fide hit.
    I don't know why it wasn't a big hit in the US (it was top 5 in the UK).

    So I think CYT and FTL would certainly flop too.

      So, what were you guys missing on that album?

        I think most agree it's a great album. The point is I don't think Whitney has that one classic, flawless album like the other big divas do. Which never harmed her legacy or catalogue as has been said her greatest hits is outstanding.

          I was a casual Whitney listener but MLIYL album made me a stan! That album was pure urban bliss for me.
          It spoke to the new generation at that time. The beats, the hooks, the melody.

            It only made #5 in the UK because she performed on X-Factor.
            Her big promo on the US was the Oprah special, which gave the album a sales spike in its 3rd week rather than the single.

              The point is I don't think Whitney has that one classic,
              But she has: "Whitney Houston"

                Let's just agree to disagree.

                  My Love Is Your Love is my favourite Whitney album, but there are a few tracks I don't care for and some of the Missy/Darkchild production sounds very dated now.

                    You can't disagree on something factual.
                    You can only say that you don't like the music.

                    There are many albums I don't like, but I can't deny they are classics.

                      I agree, I wonder what some people consider a classic, flawless album is if no Whitney Houston album fits the list.

                      • Million Dollar Bill still wasn't right for America in 2009. She needed something that could smash on R&B radio and crossover.

                        • Whitney was never going to smash singles-wise, she was past her prime at the time she released this, the only consolation was she had a huge following that supported the album, it was a hit in most people's books. It's so sad that when you look back, it was like a final album in the making, it seemed like she was already bidding farewell in most of the songs. I love that it sounded so raw, she had all the producers to digitally modify her 'damaged' vocals but she still took the high road and showcased both her vocal strengths and flaws. "A Song for You" is the only song that shouldn't have made the cut, it had grating vocals all throughout, the raw version of "I Look to You" with R. Kelly would have been a better replacement track.

                                  What a great album this was! Been playing it all day today, and I'm so happy that I gave it a spin after such a long time.

                                  I Look To You, Worth It and Salute are flawless songs. The whole album is one of the greatest comebacks.

                                  Do you guys think I Look To You would make a good first dance song? Or is it lil too sad?

                                      I still play Million Dollar Bill.
                                      Call You Tonight reminds me of my mother and stepfather going to a club during old school night.

                                          This is such a strong album, I hear it from time to time.

                                          IDKMOS still feels so raw and emotional.
