Tina Turner is back from retirement, proving that you can never be too old to create music.
Together with Norwegian DJ and producer Kygo, the iconic, 80-year-old Grammy-winner launched on Friday a modern revival of her award-winning song, ‘What’s Love Got To Do With It.’
Released in 1984, the original ‘What’s Love Got To Do With It’ is considered to be Turner’s most successful song in her career. Coming off her fifth solo album, Private Dancer, it’s her first and only song that topped the US charts. It earned three Grammy Awards in 1985 for Record of the Year, Song of the Year, and Best Female Pop Vocal Performance. Lastly, the song ranked on #309 in Rolling Stone‘s 500 Greatest Songs of All Time.
Turner and Kygo’s remix also comes with a self-empowering music video starring Charles Michael Davis from Younger and Hollywood‘s Laura Harrier.
Prior to the release, Kygo has taken to Twitter to tease fans about the collab.
“‘What’s Love Got To Do With It’ is one of my all time favorite songs, and it feels surreal to get the opportunity to work with such a legendary artist! Can’t wait for you all to hear it,” said the DJ.
Fans were delighted by that announcement as Kygo had previously impressed the world with his remix of another timeless track: Higher Love by Whitney Houston. It was a well-received attempt; it even gave Whitney her first Billboard Hot 100 chart since her passing away in 2012.
