1984’s ‘What’s Love Got to Do With It’ – the first and only Hot 100 #1 hit by Queen of Rock N Roll Tina Turner – is easily classified as her most iconic solo hit.
Yet, while remakes and remixes of musical treasures of its magnitude are often frowned upon, Norwegian producer Kygo – who recently thrilled fans with his updated take on late Pop icon Whitney Houston‘s ‘Higher Love’ – earned Turner’s stamp of approval when he revamped her timeless tune.
Released July 17, the sonic facelift keeps the diva’s vocals front and center but changes the vibe entirely by turning the R&B-tinged number into an island-inspired dance track.
Hear it inside and weigh in:
Having peaked at #63 on the Hot 100 with the Houston remix, the Turner tune could see Kygo reach even higher heights.
