Whitney is the second studio album by American singer Whitney Houston, released on June 2, 1987 by Arista Records as the follow-up to her best selling debut album, Whitney Houston. The album catapulted her to international fame  . Most of critics admitted the commercial value of the album, but were critical of its standard pattern followed the predecessor's winning formula and the materials failed to reveal Houston's individuality. Jon Pareles of The New York Times criticized something as formulaic on the album, stating that: " Whitney plays everything safe. It uses three of the debut album's producers. There are bouncy, tinkly songs aimed at teen-agers, and slow tunes aimed at sentimental adults, as before.
