TRY IT ON MY OWN ~ WHITNEY HOUSTON
"Try It on My Own" (also known as "On My Own") is a 2003 single released by American R&B/pop singer Whitney Houston. The song is about overcoming doubts or fears so a person can reach the point in their life where they can "try it on their own". It was the third single released off Houston's platinum album Just Whitney and, like "Whatchulookinat" and "One of Those Days" before it, was a modest hit on the Hot 100. It became a hit on the U.S. adult contemporary singles chart reaching number ten, and the remixed version became a number-one U.S. dance hit. Houston performed "Try It on My Own" on an episode of the television series Boston Public ("Chapter Sixty-Six"), which first aired in May 2003. On May 20, 2003 Arista released a DVD single featuring the videos for "Try It on My Own" and "One of Those Days", both which were certified gold by the RIAA. "Try it On My Own" was remixed by Thunderpuss, Mike Rizzo, Maurice Joshua, Pound Boys and Mauve. The single sold 800.000 copies worldwide.
