Whitney Houston will forever be cemented in history as a legend who’s voice was truly second to none.
And of course to mark her legendary status, her 1992 hit “I Will Always Love You” recently hit the 1 billion views milestone on YouTube.
The song, which we all came to know and love as the lead track from her hit film The Bodyguard, is a remake of the originally written song by Dolly Parton in 1973. Rendition or not, nobody can sang that song like Houston did. Her version transitioned her to superstar status, by winning Record of the Year and Best Female Pop Vocal Performance at the 36th Grammy Awards in 1994. Not to mention, she also spent 14 weeks at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100.
The singer, who tragically died in 2012, joins three other ‘90s favorites on YouTube’s billion-list, including Guns N’ Roses’ “November Rain”, Nirvana’s “Smells Like Teen Spirit” and the Cranberries’ “Zombie.”
In 2020, Houston’s “I Will Always Love You” has averaged over 350,000 views per day on the official YouTube page bearing her name, which is currently at a cool 5.33 million subscribers and counting.
