    "How Will I Know" was released in November 1985 as the third single from her debut album. The song was originally offered to Janet Jackson, but she passed on it. Whitney and producer Narada Michael Walden made some slight changes to the song. The track's music video helped to break Whitney Houston to the MTV audience.
