Kygo Announces a Collab With Tina Turner on One of Her Biggest Hits: ‘One of My All Time Favorite Songs’

Kygo made music history last year when his remix of Whitney Houston’s “Higher Love” cover delivered the late singer’s first posthumous Billboard Hot 100 hit.

Now, the Norwegian producer is hoping to make lightning strike twice with the help of another all-time legend: Tina Turner.

Today (July 13), Kygo announced on Twitter that an official collab with Turner — reimagining her 1984 hit “What’s Love Got to Do With It” — is dropping this Friday, July 17. “‘What’s Love Got to Do With It’ is one of my all time favorite songs,” the producer wrote, “and it feels surreal to get the opportunity to work with such a legendary artist.”

Off of 1984’s Private Dancer LP, “What’s Love Got to Do With It” remains Turner first and only solo song to reach No. 1 on the Hot 100 in the U.S. In 1985, the song won three Grammys for Record of the Year, Song of the Year, and Best Female Pop Vocal Performance. (Warren G and Adina Howard also covered the track in 1996, asking “What’s love if you don’t respect the game?”)

Meanwhile, Kygo’s recently released sophomore LP Golden Hour is still in the No. 2 position on the Top Dance/Electronic Albums chart, just behind Lady Gaga’s Chromatica.

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, and it feels surreal to get the opportunity to work with such a legendary artist! Can’t wait for you all to hear it pic.twitter.com/q4kroHm1H9
