A couple of days ago, Gordon Voidwell contributed his part to the ongoing tribute to the late, great Whitney Houston. The homage comes in the form of his new video for "XO Boyfriend" which mimics the dance moves and set design of Houston's "How Will I Know." Voidwell and his director, Steve Pristin, had recorded the video last summer while Whitney Houston was still alive, but according to the press release, "had been keeping it under wraps until the right moment, which unfortunately arose this week."
The video matches Voidwell's 80s dance style and serves as a great tribute to the diva. The music and its video are able to reference the sound of Houston's era without being trapped by it. It's a song that could fit in with one of this week's many Houston tribute mixes, as well as any current dance mix.
