For her third album, it was decided that Whitney Houston should step out of his pop diva role and do something that was more R&B-ish in tone. Arista Records president Clive Davis tapped the services of songwriting/production duo L.A. & Babyface who were having gold and platinum success with Bobby Brown, the Whispers, Karyn White, the Boys, Johnny Gill, and Pebbles. It definitely was an image change for the singer, with publicity photos for I'm Your Baby Tonight and the premiere music video sporting the singer in jeans in a neighborhood filled with brownstones. "I'm Your Baby Tonight" became the singer's sixth gold single, topping both the R&B and pop charts in late 1990. The four million-selling I'm Your Baby Tonight album included a number one hit in "All the Man I Need" as well as the hit singles "My Name Is Susan," "Miracle," "I Belong to You," "We Didn't Know" and the popular radio-aired album track "Lover for Life" written by Sam Dees.
