Whitney Houston's final song has hit the Web months after her sudden Feb. 11 death. The track, titled "Celebrate," is a duet with her "Sparkle" co-star Jordin Sparks produced by R. Kelly.

The world premiere of the song on RyanSeacrest.com comes a day after Sparks paid tribute to Houston at the 2012 Billboard Music Awards where she was honored with the Millenium Award. Sparks can be heard saying "We love you, Whitney" at the end of the song.

"Sparkle" will be released in theaters on Aug. 17.
