Whitney Houston: I’m Your Baby Tonight (1990)

whitney i'm your babyBy Scott Goldfine

Pop superstar Whitney Houston aims for a hipper sound on her third LP, “I’m Your Baby Tonight.” Songs such as “My Name Is Not Susan” and “I’m Knockin’” showcase the singer’s platinum pipes in a funkier setting than usual. It’s a welcome move, but better tune selection and grittier production could have made this hit-laden album stronger.

But don’t miss the mid-tempo gem “I Belong to You.”
