(LOS ANGELES) — Whitney Houston may have died in February, but she’s still putting out new music.
The song, called “Celebrate,” is a duet with Jordin Sparks from the upcoming remake of the film Sparkle, and was recorded just days before Houston died. The new tune, released Monday on Ryan Seacrest’s website, also includes a quiet message at the end of it.
The film was supposed to be a comeback vehicle of sorts for the troubled singer. Sparkle is set for release in August.
