This day in history on the 09th January in 1988, Whitney Houston scored her sixth consecutive No.1 in the US with ‘So Emotional’. She is an American pop/R&B singer. The song was the third single from her second album Whitney, and was released on November 12, 1987.
Commercially, it also failed to achieve the success of her predecessors, peaking outside the top ten in most countries; it did however reach number five in the UK and number one in the Billboard Hot 100 and it is a dance chart hit. It would go and finish as the sixth best selling song of the year and the fourth most played in clubs; it is her sixth biggest hit on the Hot 100 chart.
