MY NAME IS NOT SUSAN ~ WHITNEY HOUSTON
"My Name Is Not Susan" was the fourth single released from Whitney Houston's third album, I'm Your Baby Tonight. The song was produced by L.A. Reid and Babyface and written by Eric Foster White. In the song, the female protagonist's lover has mistakenly called her by his ex-girlfriend's name, "Susan," and receives a harsh rebuke for his mistake. "My Name Is Not Susan" debuted on the Billboard Hot 100 at number 67, peaking at number 20. It remained in the Top 40 for six weeks, Houston's shortest showing at the time. It peaked at number eight on the R&B Singles Chart. "My Name Is Not Susan" was modestly received internationally, where it peaked at number 29 on the UK Singles Chart and a modest number 57 in Germany. In 1998, a remixed version of the song (remixed by Snap in 1991 as the Logic remix) charted in Germany and reached number 52, five places higher than the original did in 1991.
