Pop diva Whitney Houston hasn’t released an album in seven years but her new one, rumoured to be titled Undefeated, will finally drop this fall, her record label announced Thursday.
Since her career kicked off in 1985 with her self-titled debut, Houston, 45, has sold more than 170 million records, singles and videos around the world. She is one of music's most decorated female artists, with more than 400 awards.
In recent years, she made headlines for her troubled personal life, including treatment for substance abuse and a 2006 divorce from longtime husband Bobby Brown.
In April 2009 legendary songwriter Diane Warren revealed that she had penned I Didn't Know My Own Strength especially for Houston and it was going to be the first single from her upcoming album.
Houston's most recent public performance was in February at a pre-Grammy party hosted by record producer Clive Davis, where Davis said she was ready for her comeback. She was also a presenter at the Grammy Awards.
