To roll Whitney Houston's career back up the hill, Akon and others have stood behind her, ready to make a great come back. Though still early, Akon has seen what might be the come out of this project.
"The voice is there; I don't think anyone could ever take that from her," Akon said. "As long as we apply that voice to hit records, she'll be right back where she left off."
He added that all of the trouble Whitney had encountered in the past 4 years would certainly reflect on the work so that people will really grab what she had been through. "And then, of course, you just forget about all the trouble, all the negative stuff and just come with happy records, things that warm your heart - where your life is now, the direction you want to go in."
Whitney's latest album was "One Wish: The Holiday Album" in 2003. Even before this album was issued, she has been caught in several problems that include her father's sue in 2002, long term drug and health issue and also recent bitter divorce with husband of 14 years.
Akon also revealed that he and Whitney haven't actually entered the studio but ideas are already streaming. "I just think she needs to come with great songs. I think the music will overcome all the things she's been through," he said.
Whitney has entered the studio in mid March with producer Johnta Austin. It was reported that she would also receive the help from Ne-Yo, R. Kelly and Timbaland. Producer Clive Davis said in 2006, "…we are going to make a killer, killer album".
