Whitney Houston – I Wanna Dance With Somebody

“I Wanna Dance with Somebody (Who Loves Me)” is the first single from Whitney Houston’s second studio album Whitney. It was produced by Narada Michael Walden, and written by George Merrill and Shannon Rubicam of the band Boy Meets Girl, who had previously written the number-one Whitney Houston hit “How Will I Know”. The original arrangement was more of a country tune, but was transformed by Walden to make it a dance song.
