So Emotional was written by the hit-making team William Steinberg and Tom Kelly (Madonna's Like A Virgin). This hard-driving song about an obssesive love brings Whitney closer to the "inspired soul" of her early mentor, Aretha Franklin, than any other Houston song to date. It was her sixth US Number 1 single in a row, equalling a record previously shared only by the Beatles and the Bee Gees.
