It's been five years since we heard new music from R&B diva Whitney Houston, and it looks like the wait is finally over. Houston posted her new song, 'Like I Never Left,' featuring Akon, on her official MySpace page this weekend. While the diva seems to be back to form, Akon struggles through an awkward verse as he attempts to sing on the same track as Houston. The songstress indirectly proclaims her return to the scene on the new single as she croons, "Yes, your girl is coming back" and "I want you to love me like I never left." Houston's upcoming album is due this fall.

Listen to 'Like I Never Left.'
