Kygo & Whitney Houston – Higher Love (Official Video)
The video showcases the bold makeup, eccentric wardrobes, and hairstyles of the 1980s, a nod to the time of Houston’s massive successes and stars Riverdale actress, Vanessa Morgan. Directed by Hanna Lux Davis, the video brings the nostalgia of the past with the contemporariness of the track.
“Higher Love” is a cover of the 1986 Steve Winwood classic, which celebrated its 33 rd anniversary on June 20th. The Whitney Houston estate presented Kygo with the archival recording of Whitney’s version, which was previously released as a Japan-only bonus track on her “I’m Your Baby Tonight” physical album in 1990. Upon hearing the Whitney track, Kygo raced into the studio, thrilled to be given the opportunity to make music with one of the greatest female vocalists of all time.
