ONE OF THOSE DAYS ~ WHITNEY HOUSTON
"One of Those Days" is a 2002 song by American R&B singer Whitney Houston, and was the second single from her album Just Whitney.. It reached number seventy-two on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 and became a modest R&B hit, peaking at number twenty-nine on Billboard Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Singles & Tracks chart. In the review of Houston's album Just Whitney, Keysha Davis of BBC said, "One Of Those Days also has a slight retro feel to it, cleverly sampling the Isley Brothers' Between the Sheets. Modern day women will be able to relate to this one, as Whitney croons about the need to withdraw from the pressures of day-to-day living for a spot of girlie pampering". Knight Ridder/Tribune News Service in their review said, "One of Those Days kicks off the CD with the rumor-plagued diva admitting she needs to take better care of herself". The official music video was directed by Kevin Bray who also directed Houston's other videos including Heartbreak Hotel, My Love Is Your Love and Fine. The video showed Houston enjoying a day out and hanging out with her friends at the club, and having a massage at sauna.
