BILLBOARD #1 HITS: #589: ‘HOW WILL I KNOW’- WHITNEY HOUSTON -FEBRUARY 15, 1986

A woman is sitting, with a smile on her face. She is looking forward and her head is resting on her left arm. She is wearing bangles on her right wrist. Next to her the word "Whitney" is written in medium purple capital letters. The words "How Will I Know" are written near her head.

Billboard #1 Hits: #589: ‘How Will I Know’- Whitney Houston – February 15, 1986. #1 for 2 weeks in Billboard Hot 100.

This song was originally written for Janet Jackson but she passed on it. This was the 3rd #1 in a row from Whitney’s self- titled debut album- and the 3rd of her 11 #1 hits in her career. This would be my favorite song of hers- was never much of a fan after the debut album. Not saying she couldn’t sing but it seemed to me it got to a point where the point of the whole exercise was just to show off her voice.
