Jermaine Jackson and Whitney Houston recorded "Don't Look Any Further"?

This is news to me!! It didn't make the cut for his 1984 alnum Dynamite / Jermaine Jackson. It was given to former label mate Dennis Edwards and future MJ duet partner Siedah Garrett.

She wasn't supposed to be on the song. Siedah sung on the demo version, and they decided to keep her vocals.

I love "Don't Look Any Further"! I would love to hear their version of it. The instrumental track even sounds a little different in the Entertainment Tonight clip.

I wonder how that is if the beat sounds a little different. Those fucking Motown vaults even have hot shit from the 80s in them!

I wonder if it'll be included on her upcoming greatest hits compilation. There doesn't seem to be that many unreleased Whitney songs.

I think it was going to be a duet with Dennis & Chaka Khan, but she wasn't available in time for her to record.

According to the BBR liner notes, Aretha was actually Dennis' first choice, then Chaka. Neither were available so that's why they ended up keeping Siedah on the final version.

I don't think Arista is really known for putting out unreleased songs. At any rate, since it was intended for Jermaine's album, it probably wouldn't go on a Whitney compilation.
