Whitney Houston is arguably one of the greatest artists of all time. She had a powerhouse voice that left us far too soon. But as it turns out, Houston had some unreleased music within her estate that most of the public has never heard. Her family recently co-authored with Kygo, who remixed and Houston cover of Steve Winwood's 1986 hit, "Higher Love."
Houston's crisp, powerhouse voice is the highlight of the new tune – and reminds us why we love her
When Kygo revamps an old song, spin it in a way that keeps the original artist as the focal point. In his "Higher Love" remix, Houston's voice is crisp and clear, and it's like she did not leave us seven years ago. The song was recorded at the pinnacle of her career, and the passion with which she sings it shows through in the newest version. It reminds every Houston fan why she became so famous in the first place; her voice was arguably incomparable. Plus, it brings us back to Houston, which took over the world before tragedy struck and drug use turned her life upside down
Houston died from a drug-related heart problem in 2012
Houston had a long battle with drugs during her fame. When Houston was unconscious in her bath tub in 2012, there were reports of cocaine and prescription drugs in her system, according to the coroner's report. Houston's official cause of death has been labeled with coronary artery disease, but it seems to stem from years of drug use. While she died too soon, the Kygo remix helps us relive the days when she was at her best and her happiest.
