In the early 1990s Whitney Houston recorded a cover of Steve Winwood’s “Higher Love” that, for whatever reason, got relegated to bonus track status on the Japanese release of her album I’m Your Baby Tonight. Recently, however, her estate recruited superproducer Kygo to revive it and bish did he ever!
I first heard the song last Monday night at a club on Fire Island whilst waiting for a drag performance to start (side note: Wanda Sykes and Tim Bagley were standing behind me) and when the opening notes landed every last queen in the place lost their damn gay mind. Drinks were discarded, chairs were shoved aside and all the little bootie shorts in the place got bouncin’. My little bootie shorts haven’t stopped bouncin’ since.
Have joy, Internet. It Frigay!
