“I Didn’t Know My Own Strength” (Stream)

    Whitney’s chosen “I Didn’t Know My Own Strength” (aka “The Greatest Love of All: Redux”) as her comeback single, and while Whitney’s voice sounds as good as it ever has, the track doesn’t really seem like a radio killer. 90s pop juggernaut Dianne Warren penned this one, and it’s a retread of the same kind of flaccid, overly-sentimental songwriting that conquered the charts so thoroughly in her heyday. Sure, it would be nauseating and awkward if Whitney was singing about “swag” with Auto-tuned vocals, but that doesn’t mean she has to hit us with this time capsule of a song.
