Cover Smother: Whitney Strikes A 1985 Pose

Wednesday, July 15, 2009

Why does this cover feel sooo 1985? Must be the earrings, the fonts, the pose...or the hair...whatever, Whitney Houston looks gorgeous and it's nice to see her face on the cover of a brand new album. Yes, the retoucher got a little too mouse click happy, but all in all, this album cover just blares the opening chorus of "Queen Of The Night". Fierce. But seriously, I'm getting the sense that Clive Davis gave his input for the art direction for this album cover design as this is clearly promoting "Hey! Buy this! This is the Whitney you knew from the 80's!". Oh yeah, Clive and Arista Records, I'm up to your promotion tricks. I Look To You hits stores September 1st.

  1. It's a nice cover. I'm worried that the album will be full of safe,bland MOR pop songs,judging the first single leak. I know they're trying to repair her image but.............
