I'M YOUR BABY TONIGHT ~ WHITNEY HOUSTON
"I'm Your Baby Tonight" is the lead single and title track off Whitney Houston's third studio album of the same name. The song was produced by L.A. Reid and Babyface. After having charted ten Top 10 hits (and seven consecutive number ones) on the Billboard Hot 100, Houston continued her chart momentum as "I'm Your Baby Tonight" would become her eleventh Top 10 hit and eighth number one. The song had an impressive debut at number 42 the week of October 20, 1990. Six weeks later, it hit number one, ending Mariah Carey's three-week run at the top with "Love Takes Time". "I'm Your Baby Tonight" spent only one week at number one, being knocked out by Stevie B's "Because I Love You (The Postman Song)". Altogether, the single spent seven weeks in the Top 10, twelve weeks in the Top 20, and fourteen consecutive weeks in the Top 40. It also reached number one on the Billboard R&B singles chart for two weeks. The single was certified Gold by the RIAA.
