Back to Cool: Diana Ross and Donna Summer Remix Their Disco Hits
Diana Ross, the original disco diva, has made music history with a remix of her iconic disco hits “I’m Coming Out,” and “Upside Down.” The final product, remixed by Swedish producer StoneBridge (responsible for remixes of Ariana Grande’s “No Tears Left to Cry,” and Blondie’s “Fun”), hit No. 1 on the Billboard Dance Club Songs chart in just 8 weeks. The original versions of both songs made No. 1 on the same chart during the same week in 1980, 38 years ago. (Who says club kids and their grandparents can’t bond over the good old days?)
Other disco and funk remixes that are on our summer jam list include the slinky, sexy extended remix of Chakha Khan’s new single, “Like Sugar,” and Ralphi Rosario and Erick Ibiza’s remix of Donna Summer’s “Hot Stuff.” If you needed proof that disco ain’t dead, these legends are it.
