Whitney Houston's voice was almost destroyed by drugs. Following years of heavy smoking and drug abuse, Whitney's singing was reportedly "unrecognizable" when she began recording her new album.

April 14, 2008: "Whitney Houston Sex Song"
Whitney Houston's toyboy lover has written an X-rated song about their sex life.
R'n'B singer Ray J - who, at 27, is 17 years younger than Whitney - also slates her ex-husband Bobby Brown in new song 'Boyfriend'.
Lyrics include: "Is that your wife, is that your shorty, well I'm her boyfriend... I think the problem is you don't beat it right... Making love is cool, just pull her hair sometimes."
Despite Jay's jibes, Bobby - who has a 15-year-old daughter with the 'I Will Always Love You' singer - insists he doesn't care who his former spouse dates.
In his book 'Being Bobby Brown: The Whole Truth and Nothin' But', he said: "I'm aware of the fact that Whitney had been seeing Ray J, a very young R'n'B artist who is most famous for being the little brother of Brandy, the multi-platinum singing artist and TV star.
"Their relationship doesn't bother me. She's open to see whoever she wants to see, just like I can see who I want to see. I know the age difference between her and the little guy is almost 20 years, but each to his own."
In his book, Bobby claims Whitney introduced him to cocaine and addresses the rumours about her being bisexual.

In the 1980s, Whitney Houston was one the first black artists to receive regular rotation on MTV in the network's early years during a white male rock dominated time. Her debut album became the biggest selling debut album of all time for a solo artist, her follow up album became the first album by a female artist to debut at #1 on the Billboard 200, and Whitney Houston had a record seven consecutive #1 singles on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. Whitney Houston continued her success into Hollywood in the 1990s, starting with the box office hit The Bodyguard. The soundtrack became the best-selling soundtrack of all time, and the single "I Will Always Love You" the best-selling single by a female artist and 6th best-selling song in history of music. Whitney Houston is the fourth best-selling female recording artist according to the Recording Industry Association of America. According to the Guinness Book of World Records Whitney Houston is the "The Most Awarded Female Artist of All Time".
After Whitney Houston married former R&B singer Bobby Brown at the height of her career, rumors of drug and spousal abuse started to affect her career. This led to a decline in her public image and her album sales dropped during the 2000s. Her personal troubles and erratic behavior became more talked about than any of her music, with stories regularly appearing in the tabloid press. Houston underwent two drug rehab programs in 2005 and 2006. After a successful second program in 2006, Houston divorced Brown and gained custody of their only daughter. Whitney Houston has since been working on her 7th studio album with music mogul and close friend and mentor Clive Davis, who confirmed that the album will be released in November 2008.
