About My Love Is Your Love

My Love Is Your Love is the fourth studio album by American recording artist Whitney Houston, released worldwide on November 17, 1998. It was Houston's first studio album in eight years, following I'm Your Baby Tonight, although she had released several movie soundtracks in that time. My Love Is Your Love is composed of mid-tempo R&B, hip hop, ballads, urban-dance, reggae, and torch songs, produced by musicians such as Rodney Jerkins, Soulshock & Karlin, Missy Elliott, Wyclef Jean, David Foster, and Babyface. It is notable for introducing elements of hip hop into Houston's work, only sparingly used in her previous material. Although the album sold less than Houston's previous albums in the US, it was a hit globally, particularly Europe, selling over 15 million copies. The album is certified four times platinum. It generated several hit singles: "When You Believe", a duet with Mariah Carey, which also won an Academy Award at the 71st Annual Academy Awards ceremony; "Heartbreak Hotel", which features Kelly Price and Faith Evans; "It's Not Right, But It's Okay"; the title track "My Love Is Your Love", was certified platinum and became Houston's third best-selling single ever; and "I Learned from the Best". It was followed by a successful world tour. My Love Is Your Love received positive reviews and is often regarded as one of her best releases. At the 42nd Grammy Awards of 2000, the album received seven nominations, including Best R&B Album and two Best R&B Songs. Houston won for Best Female R&B Vocal Performance for "It's Not Right But It's Okay", giving her her sixth Grammy Award.
