"I Belong to You" is an R&Bpop song written by Derek Bramble and Franne Golde, with production handled by Narada Michael Walden for American singer Whitney Houston's third studio album I'm Your Baby Tonight (1990). The single was a Top 10 hit on the Billboard R&B chart and garnered Houston a nomination for Best Female R&B Vocal Performance at the 35th Grammy Awards in 1993.

Critical reception[edit]

James Hunter of Rolling Stone described the beat of the song "I Belong to You": "which acts out its claim in a penthouse bedroom, Walden uncorks high-end grooves accented by pinballing counterrhythms."[1]

Music video[edit]

The music video is a like a 'Part II' to the "My Name Is Not Susan" video. It features some shots from "My Name Is Not Susan" that are extended and/or unreleased in the video to that song. Former boxer heavyweight champion Mike Tyson is also featured in the video. Along the way, the video includes footage of Houston's I'm Your Baby Tonight World Tour.
