    Hit producer Swizz Beatz will team up with Alicia Keys to help Whitney Houston make her full comeback into the music business. [watch here] The new collaboration song, "Million Dollar Bill," will reportedly focus on new love and may even turn out to be Whitney's first single.

    "At the time I was working on some stuff with Alicia," Swizz said in an interview. [watch here] "I was like, 'We need to bring Whitney back. We need to do some stuff to support Whitney.' Then Alicia was like, 'I love Whitney, she's an icon. I would love to be a part of that.' I started vibing on different things. I didn't want to come with anything that would make her sound too old or too young. That's when I got the vibe to do something that had, like, a disco feel, but still with the hard drums on it, still musical but moving. I wanted to do something that was instant when it came on. Then I played the idea for Alicia to make sure I wasn't bugging out. 'Am I going too far with this?' She was like, 'Nah. That can be a big smash.' …I want this to be one of the biggest records of her comebacks," Swizz noted. "I want her to be onstage at the Grammys talking about this record." [watch here]
