MILLION DOLLAR BILL ~ WHITNEY HOUSTON

"Million Dollar Bill" is a song performed by American R&B and pop recording artist Whitney Houston, from her seventh studio album titled I Look to You which samples R&B singer Loleatta Holloway's "We're Getting Stronger" from Holloway's 1976 debut LP. It was released as the official worldwide lead and only single (second US single) from the album on August 18, 2009 through Arista Records in the US and August 24, 2009 through RCA Records in the UK. The song was written by Grammy-award winning singer-songwriter Alicia Keys and samples R&B singer Loleatta Holloway's "We're Getting Stronger" from Holloway's 1976 debut LP. Keys had requested to be a part of Houston's album and Houston decided she wanted to work with Keys after hearing her perform at one of Clive Davis' parties. It was produced by hip-hop producer Swizz Beatz with an old school R&B beat. The song received critical acclaim at the album's three listening parties and was cited as a "big comeback record". The single entered the Hot 100 at #100, becoming her thirty-ninth chart entry on that chart. Houston performed the song live on The X Factor in the UK on Sunday, October 18 the night before the album was released in that territory. Million Dollar Bill is an uptempo "pop dance groove" with strong disco influences. The song lasts for three minutes and twenty three seconds
