How Does Yaya DaCosta Handle Whitney Houston's 'I'm Your Baby Tonight' In This Teaser?

Watch the new clip from the upcoming Lifetime biopic.

So far, every teaser that has come out about Lifetime's upcoming Whitney Houston biopic look surprisingly great.

The first trailer struck a balance between highlighting the Houston's incredible musical legacy while not ignoring her turbulent relationship with Bobby Brown or her substance abuse problems -- and Yaya DaCosta appears to accurately portray the late singer.

A new clip from the movie (which debuts Jan. 17) shows Houston in the studio recording 1990's "I'm Your Baby Tonight" as Babyface (Wesley Jonathan) watches excitedly outside the booth.

You may be surprised to learn that DaCosta doesn't sing in the film -- those vocals belong to Grammy nominee Deborah Cox -- given how much gusto she brings to the clip. If the "America's Next Top Model" alum is this convincing in a one-minute snippet, I can't wait to see what she does in the rest of the film.

In addition to "I'm Your Baby Tonight," other iconic songs like "I Will Always Love You," "The Greatest Love Of All" and "I'm Every Woman" will also be featured. Angela Bassett makes her directorial debut with the biopic, and, since she was a longtime friend of Houston's, it looks like this will be the first Lifetime movie in a while that does its source material justice.
