Following the massive worldwide debut, Kygo and Whitney Houston‘s fresh rendition of Steve Winwood‘s 1986 “Higher Love” secures back-to-back Greatest Gainer Billboard Dance Club Songs chart positions.
From #41* (debut) to #20* to #11*, the RCA Records title from the never before released single by New Jersey-born icon enjoys the expert production and finesse of the Norwegian Tropical House artist. Houston opens the song with “Think about it, there must be higher love/Down in the heart or hidden in the stars above/Without it, life is a wasted time” over a creeping instrumental that blossoms into a triumphant and piano-driven drop. Overall, it’s the new no one knew they needed, until now!
The rework adds a club savvy, floor dance twist to the original 1990 recording so have a listen to this week’s Billboard #11* Greatest Gainer from Kygo and Whitney Houston below.
