BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1988
“Love Will Save the Day” was the fifth single by American singer-songwriter Whitney Houston from her second multi-platinum studio album Whitney. The single was released in July 1988 by Arista Records.
“Love Will Save the Day was produced by John “Jellybean” Benitez and features Roy Ayers on Vibraphone (Vibes).
At this time, Whitney Houston had achieved a record-breaking string of seven number-one hits, with four of those #1’s from her current album “Whitney”. “Love Will Save the Day” did not become Houston’s eighth consecutive number one, but continued her trend of hit singles by peaking in the US Top 10. The #9 peak on the Hot 100 was Houston’s lowest solo peak up to this time. The song also made the Top 10 without an accompanying music video.
Houston had stronger performances on the charts prior to this song but it did remain in the top 40 for 11 weeks, and reached #5 on the R&B Chart, and #1 on the Hot Club/Dance Play Tracks.
Internationally, the song mostly saw less success except in the United Kingdom, where it went Top 10 and Switzerland, where it went Top 20. It was a moderate hit in Germany, making 37; and was a minor hit in Australia, peaking at 77.
