Let’s start with a true floor-filler. Here’s Whitney’s I Wanna Dance With Somebody featured in the year’s best teen comedy Love, Simon.
There’s no better accompaniment to an encounter with a gargantuan satan than Whitney’s much-loved ballad I Will Always Love You. Found here 2013’s irreverent comedy This Is The End.
Two of the most powerful voices in R&B joined forces for the soundtrack of the 1998 Dreamworks animation. Hit those high notes with Whitney & Mariah and you’ll shiver with nineties nostalgia. Ooof!
Marvel at this scene from the 1996 comedy-drama featuring Denzel Washington and Lionel Ritchie, and Whitney performing I Believe In You And Me.
It’s the guilty pleasure classic that never lets up and features one of Whitney’s defining moments. Of course, it tops our list: re-watch I Will Always Love You from 1992’s The Bodyguard.
