Tina Turner Is Stepping Out Of Retirement For ‘What’s Love Got To Do W/ It’ Remix
At 80-years-old, singer Tina Turner is looking to come out of retirement to make a remix to her hit “What’s Love Got To Do With It”, released in 1984.
The news was announced Monday (July 13th) as Norwegian producer Kygo told fans about their upcoming remix to Tina Turner’s iconic track.
“Can’t believe I’m releasing a collab with @LoveTinaTurner this Friday! ‘What’s Love Got to Do With It’ is one of my all time favorite songs,’ the music producer wrote, adding: ‘and it feels surreal to get the opportunity to work with such a legendary artist.”
The original song gave Tina Turner her first and only U.S. number one. In 1985, “What’s Love Got To Do With It” earned three awards at the Grammy Awards, including Record of the Year, Song of the Year, and Best Female Pop Vocal Performance. Nine years (1993) after the ‘What’s Love Got To Do With It’ was released, the track was used as the title for the biographical film about Turner’s life and career. Angela Bassett starred as the singer.
In 2012, the track was inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame, giving Turner her third Grammy Hall of Fame Award.
