    One of my favourite all female R&B duets of all time, I always thought this was a bigger hit but just checked and it was a bit of a flop really! Should have been as big as 'The Boy Is Mine'.

    Song is ok but the lyrics are awful.

    #70 in the US.

    Did not chart in the UK.

    This should have been a bigger hit.

    Love Whitney, love Deborah, but really didn't understand why this was so popular, it's about as average as a power ballad can get. "Heartbreak Hotel" with Kelly and Faith was much stronger for me.

    Love the lyrics for this one! I think it's very relatable to the masses and that's why it is among her more popular post-90's hits despite not being a massive chart success.

    This song suffered due to very poor promotion and a bad rep for Whitney during that time....

    This was not just a great song, this is an amazing song and is in my humble opinion far greater then "the boy is mine".
    Just simply brilliant.

    This song could have gotten the ranks of "I will always love you"....

    The lyrics are basic, but that is in my opinion the power of the song. Real, not too many frizzles.
    One of Whitney's best...

    One of my favorite Whitney songs.

    It wasn't available on cd-single. I've searched everywhere.
    Only promo's and they are soooo expensive as it is rare.
    No video either.

    If it was properly released as a cd-single with a video, it would have been a hit.
    She was very popular at the time.

    Not too fond of this.The vocals were superb but besides that,it's not something i can play over and over.Her duet with Cece Winans Count On Me is alot better

    This song really should be bigger. But it does have a classic feel to it.

    Their voices actually matched pretty well here.

    The remixes dont do it for me. I dont know why. Probably cause the original is just so epic

    Well there are remixes that made a song better like the Thunderpuss remix of It's not right but it's ok, but when I'm a dance mood I like to listen to them!
