"Love That Man" is a song by American R&B-pop singer Whitney Houston, released in 2003 and is featured on her album, Just Whitney.... The song was the final single released from the album. The track was commissioned as a remix single in the U.S.

The release became Houston's 12th number-one hit on the Billboard Hot Dance Club Play chart.

Critical reception[edit]

BBC Music reviewer Keysha Davids wrote: "'Love That Man' sounds suspiciously like an ode to her much criticised hubby. Here Whitney comes across as soulful and sincere as she ooohs and aaahs in the right places. The mid-tempo track harks back to 80s soul with its simple bass line, and unfussy production."[1] Andreman, Joan of Boston Globe panned the single with "stands by her bad boy."[2]
