I Like That Houston (Capitol, 2004)

I Like That was American rapper Houston’s debut single off his debut album, It’s Already Written. I Like That featured Chingy, Nate Dogg and I-20 and was all over the place in 2004. It was even used in an ad for McDonald’s. I Like That peaked at #3 on the R&B chart, #11 on the Hot 100, #4 in New Zealand and #5 in Switzerland. I Like That was certified Gold in the U.S. and Australia.

Life didn’t stay so rosy for Houston though. In 2005, he suffered a breakdown and tried to commit suicide by jumping from a window while under the influence of PCP. He was restrained by his team and locked in a first floor room. While in there, he gouged out his own left eye with a plastic fork.
