Whitney’s gone, but she still keeps makin’ hits…
Global superstar, producer and DJ, Kygo‘s new music video for his single “Higher Love” with Whitney Houston. The single has racked up over 87 million Spotify streams and reached #1 on Billboard Dance Club Songs Chart since it was released. (It’s an unavoidable song of the summer, like Señorita…)
The new video is an 80s throwback nod to the time of Houston’s first massive hits, and stars Riverdale actress, Vanessa Morgan.
Higher Love is a cover of the ’86 Steve Winwood classic, which just celebrated its 33rd anniversary this summer. Kygo was presented with the recording of Whitney’s version from her estate. (It was originally just released in Japan as a bonus track on I’m Your Baby Tonight in 1990.) Kygo raced to the studio after hearing the track, thrilled to re-make music with one of THE greatest female vocalists of all time.
