Whitney Houston has posthumously returned to Billboard‘s Hot 100 chart with the help of Kygo collaboration “Higher Love,” which debuted at No. 63.
“Higher Love,” a remake of Steve Winwood‘s 1986 hit, is Houston’s first posthumous entrance to the chart.
Billboard reports Houston’s estate offered Kygo the archival recording of her original cover of “Higher Love,” which was previously released as a Japan-only bonus track on the physical version of her 1990 album I’m Your Baby Tonight.
Winwood’s original “Higher Love” topped the Hot 100 dated August 30, 1986.
The reworked Houston version also entered the Hot Dance/Electronic Songs chart at No. 2 and was at No. 4 on the all-genre Digital Song Sales with 24,000 first-week downloads sold, according to Nielsen Music.
Houston died on February 11, 2012 in Beverly Hills, California. The coroner’s report showed that she had accidentally drowned in the bathtub, with heart disease and cocaine use as contributing factors.
