Whitney is the second studio album by American singer Whitney Houston, released on June 2, 1987 by Arista Records as the follow-up to her best selling debut album, Whitney Houston. It debuted at number one on the Billboard 200 chart the issue of June 27, 1987, becoming the first album by a female artist, and only the fifth album by a solo artist to do so.

The album remained at the top for eleven consecutive weeks, creating a record; the most cumulative weeks (25 weeks) at number one on the albums chart by a female artist during the 1980s.

The album is one of only seven albums in music history to generate at least four number one Hot 100 hits from the same album.

This feat, with the three number ones from her debut album, also gave Houston seven consecutive number one songs; a record for the most consecutive number ones by any musical act.

There·through, Whitney became the first album to debut at number one in the U. With 1.2 million copies sold there, it would become the biggest selling album by a female artist in the UK, a record that has since been broken.

With her debut also selling over a million copies, this would make Houston the first female artist to have two albums sell over a million copies in the UK.

The fifth and final single to be released off the album, "Love Will Save the Day," peaked at number nine on the Hot 100 Singles chart.

Upon the album's debut, the critical receptions of Whitney were mixed.

The most consecutive #1's title was previously held by both The Beatles and the Bee Gees with six each.

The first single released from the album, "I Wanna Dance with Somebody (Who Loves Me)," made its debut at number 38, her highest debut at the time, on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, the issue dated May 16, 1987, and reached the top position in six weeks later, becoming her fourth number one hit.

Its first four singles—"I Wanna Dance with Somebody (Who Loves Me)", "Didn't We Almost Have It All," "So Emotional" and "Where Do Broken Hearts Go"—all peaked at number one on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, making her the first female artist to achieve that feat.
