Whitney Houston is loving her musical comeback, insisting picking up the microphone again was like learning to ride a horse.
The singer is preparing for the release of her first album in six years, after cancelling plans to retire from music altogether.
Houston admits it wasn't easy learning the ropes again, but it soon came back naturally to her.
She says, "It's great to be back, it's like learning to ride a horse again. A bike you can stop, brake. Sometimes you've got to pull the horse reins back, you've got to hold the rein a little better."
I Look to You is set for release this September (09).
