“You Give Good Love ” is a song by American recording artist Whitney Houston, released as the lead single from her self-titled debut album, entitled Whitney Houston in the United States in February 1985 by Arista Records, and the second single from the album in the United Kingdom. The song was written by LaLa and produced by Kashif. When LaLa sent Kashif a copy of the song, originally offered to Roberta Flack, he thought it would be a better fit for Houston and told Arista he would be interested in recording with Houston. The song garnered mostly positive reviews from critics, but brought Houston a bit of notoriety when it turned up among several songs cited by advice columnist Ann Landers as having suggestive titles.The release of “You Give Good Love” was designed to give Houston a noticeable position and standing within the black music market first, which topped the Billboard Hot Black Singles chart, but it also made an unexpected crossover pop hit, peaking at number three on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, being in their first Top 10 chart. It was later certified gold by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA). The single was released officially in some countries such as Australia, Canada, Japan, New Zealand and United Kingdom, but failed to make the top 40 in the countries except Canada, where it reached the top ten. The song won Favorite Soul/R&B Single at The 13th American Music Awards, and was nominated for Best R&B Song and Best R&B Vocal Performance, Female at the 28th Grammy Awards in 1986.The music video for the song directed by Karen Bellone, shows Houston performing at a club and a photographer focusing his camera on her.
