  • Song Info : After Whitney got criticism for being too pop-oriented, Arista records prez Clive Davis decided to enlist L.A. Reid (now head of Arista) and Babyface to produce edgier material. They succeed with the brilliant "I'm Your Baby Tonight", which they wrote themselves. This song rocks with a triplet rhythm that goes ONE two three, ONE two three, ONE ONE two, ONE two three, showing Whitney can Janet and Madonna at dance songs. A music critic once said this song was reminiscent of Michael Jackson's "The Way You Make Me Feel".

    Additional Info: "I'm Your Baby Tonight", Whitney's third album, was released in November 1990. Davis had added two younger producers to the line-up, Antonio 'L.A.' Reid and Kenny 'Babyface' Edmonds to give the album a more R&B feel. Although less of a success than her previous albums, the title track and "All The Man That I Need" gave Whitney another two US number one's, catching up with Madonna who had only recently scored her ninth chart topper as well. Other singles did less well with only "Miracle" reaching the Top 10. Even worse only the title track reached the Top 10 in Britain, peaking at no 5. Another chart-topping female singer seemed to be taking over the field that Whitney had dominated - Mariah Carey.
