Higher Love, Whitney Houston's posthumous collaboration with Kygo, has become her longest-running single on the Top 100 Official UK Singles Chart.
The track, which was originally covered by Whitney in 1990 as a bonus track on the Japanese edition of her 1990 album I’m Your Baby Tonight, has logged 34 weeks inside the Top 100.
Higher Love's long-running success overtakes one of her best-known hits, I Will Always Love You from The Bodyguard film, which spent 32 weeks inside the Top 100. Ten of those weeks were at Number 1, including the 1992 Official Christmas Number 1.
Higher Love was released in July 2019 and peaked at Number 2 in September, becoming Whitney's first UK Top 10 single in a decade. View Whitiney Houston's Official UK Chart history in full. The song was Whitney's release since a trio of posthumous tracks were put out in 2012, two of which were from the movie Sparkle, the final project she worked on before her death in February 2012.
Higher Love was originally released by British singer-songwriter Steve Winwood in 1986. His blue-eyed soul original was also a hit, reaching Number 1 in America and 13 in the UK.
The remix of Whitney's Higher love with Norwegian producer Kygo was endorsed by Whitney's long-time manager Clive Davis and the Whitney Houston estate, who launched a hologram show of the late singer this month, called An Evening With Whitney Houston.
