"It's Not Right but It's Okay" is a 1999 R&B/dance song by American singer Whitney Houston, from her fourth studio album My Love Is Your Love. Initially featured as the B-Side of "Heartbreak Hotel," it became the album's third single and peaked at #4 on the US Billboard Hot 100 Singles Chart on July 3, 1999[1]. It was #1 on Billboard's Hot Dance Music/Club Play chart, peaked at #7 on the top 100 Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Singles & Tracks chart, and was certified Gold by the RIAA. The music video was directed by Kevin Bray. Houston won the 2000 Grammy Award for Best Female R&B Vocal Performance for this song. The song reached #3 in the UK Singles Chart in March 1999 and stayed in the chart for 15 weeks because it was a hugely popular radio hit.

The song examines a woman confronting her lover about his infidelity.

Reception

The original Rodney Jerkins production was released, but main radio airplay and sales were given for the Thunderpuss Remix. The remixed version was released on Houston's 2000 Greatest Hits collection, and the original album version appears on the 2007 edition.

The Johnny Vicious remixes were included on the domestic cd maxi-single of "Heartbreak Hotel" as well as the on the import single and are currently available as iTunes downloads. The KCC remix was included on the U.S. version of the "My Love Is Your Love" maxi-single and is also available as an iTunes download. Rodney Jerkins' remixes are the closest to the album version; Club 69 (Peter Rauhofer) also remixed the track for play in the UK. In the US, when it was released as a stand-alone single, the versions that appear are the Rodney Jerkins, Thunderpuss and Club 69 remixes. There is also a ballad version, entitled "Smooth Mix".
