With the loss of the legendary singer Whitney Houston still fresh in our hearts, Detroit repping producer Waajeed and the good folks at B47 have released something special from the vaults in the form of this “All Alone Now” which was a demo for the late songstress created in 2007 by ATLien Cee-Lo Green and Waajeed.
“It was written and demo’ed for the late, great Whitney Houston circa 2007. The A&R’s at RCA were calling any and everybody to find a sound for (what would become) her 2009 release, I Look To You. I worked on seven or eight different versions and finally deciding on this one – with additional parts done by Simon Katz from Jamiroquai.
As far as the lyrics go — Cee-Lo nailed it! At the time, Whitney was still going though her very public separation with Bobby Brown – so ‘Lo wrote the words for Whitney as if she was speaking directly to him.
I wish I would’ve been able to hear her wonderful voice singing these words, but for now – Cee-Lo will do.” – Waajeed
