The collection will be available on the Quincy Jones-backed “OneOf” music NFT platform.
According to a press release from OneOf, the Quincy Jones-backed green NFT music platform, a collection of thousands of “affordable, fixed-price NFTs,” featuring archival photos transformed into “colorful and vibrant animations,” is partially available to the public, and will be sold based on a tier system.

OneOf said that the 300 NFTs featured within the collection’s Gold Tier went on pre-sale yesterday, November 17, and consisted of 300 non-fungible tokens all priced at $17. Platinum and Diamond NFTs, as well any remaining Gold Tier NFTs, will go on sale for a primary, 7-day period beginning on November 30.
The crown jewel of the NFT collection, however, will be made available through auction.
“This exclusive collection culminates in a single ‘OneOf One Iconic’ item: an early never-before-heard full-length song demo recording that Houston made at age 17,” OneOf wrote in its press release. “This recording will be auctioned in December, with auction details revealed on December 1 at OneOf.world, a two-day immersive art, music and NFT experience during Miami Art Week.”

OneOf co-founder Joshua James added that the company was thrilled to put the collection together.
“Whitney is an icon for the ages,” he said. “We couldn’t be more excited to be releasing this historical song from the very beginning of her journey as an artist.”
