"How Will I Know" peaked at #1 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 Chart, U.S. Billboard Hot Black Singles Chart and U.S. Billboard Hot Adult Contemporary Tracks Chart in the Winter of 1986.
"How Will I Know" is a song recorded by American recording artist Whitney Houston for her eponymous debut album, which was released in February 1985. The song was released by Arista Records in November that year, as the album's third single. Composed by George Merrill and Shannon Rubicam, the song was originally intended for Janet Jackson, but she passed on it. Houston then recorded the song with altered lyrics and production from Narada Michael Walden. The lyrics speak about the protagonist trying to discern if a boy she likes will ever like her back.
