Icon Whitney Houston released her first smash hit single “You Give Good Love” from her first album Whitney Houston in 1985. The song was written by La Forrest “La La” Cope, and produced by the late prolific singer/songwriter Kashif. A song that should be called an “in the pocket” groove. People deemed a pop ballad, but if you pay attention to the chords beautifully arranged by Kashif, they would understand that it was a song that penetrates the soul. For him to capture the essence of The Voice with those smooth chords is beyond genius. It’s like breaking down a Calculus equation to describe the greatness of the key changes in this song. Two legends, may the rest on.
