In a recent interview, Clive Davis discussed the progress of R&B diva Whitney Houston's highly anticipated upcoming album. The music executive and longtime supporter of Houston told Billboard that the singer has enlisted and Akon to help produce the follow-up to 2002's 'Just Whitney.'

"We're on track for a holiday release," Davis told Billboard. "We're not going to compromise who she is to fit into today's hip-hop radio market. The public wants Whitney material."

Davis went on to confirm that Houston has already completed four songs and another four tracks should be finished by the end of this month.
