MTV News | Comebacks Of 2009
Peter Andre, Robbie Williams and Whitney Houston all returned to the music scene…

2009 saw a handful of comeback Kings and comeback Queens- who had varying degrees of success through the year.
And let’s be fair reclaiming your position in the charts is no easy feat so MTV News will salute any popster who returns to music and has success.
Shakira has a 3 year hiatus to become a fully fledged She Wolf returning with a raunchy new look and an even sexier attitude! The catchy track ruled the airwaves and our own TV channels while the Colombian star capped the year off by lecturing at the Oxford Union.
After I’m A Celeb, his own reality show, marriage to Jordan and many many headlines, Peter Andre finally returned to the charts in 2009. His track Behind Closed Doors and album Revelation both hit the Top 5 in September.
Whitney Houston announced her return to music as far back as 2007 after battling drug addiction- but it took until August this year the release her album. She achieved her career best sales in the first week. And despite a shaky X Factor performance single Million Dollar Bill also became her first top 10 hit in the UK in nine years.
Eminem returned back in May with his Relapse disc- which was released five years after his last studio album. With Dr. Dre at the helm and the We Made You video ridiculing celebs it was business as usual for Slim Shady.
But the biggest comeback of the year was arguably the return of Robbie Williams. Like Eminem he kicked a prescription drug addiction before recording a new album. For Reality Killed The Video Star he wisely quit the rapping of Rudebox and returned to the perfect pop of Bodies.
It’s good to have you back guys!
