Feeling romantic ?
“Could I Have This Kiss Forever” is a 2000 duet from singers Whitney Houston and Enrique Iglesias, written by Diane Warren. The song first appeared on Iglesias’s debut English-language album Enrique as a slow Latin styled ballad.
Houston and Iglesias had never actually met in person as both of them originally recorded the song in separate studios; Houston in Hamburg,Germany and Iglesias in Los Angeles, California. The two eventually met in the studio when the song was being re-recorded for single release by Metro (the same team responsible for Iglesias’s previous hits Bailamos and Rhythm Divine), resulting in the new version being mid-tempo. The new version was released by Houston’s label as the first US single (second UK single) from her greatest-hits collection Whitney: The Greatest Hits. For Iglesias, the song was the fourth single release from his album Enrique. It is also available on his compilation Greatest Hits released in 2008.
