Tina Turner and Kygo have a special version of “What’s Love Got To Do With It?”.
The 80-year-old icon teamed up with the DJ for a remix of the beloved track from 1984, with the pair dropping the brand new music video Friday.
The clip was directed by Sarah Bahbah and stars Laura Harrier and Charles Michael Davis.
Kygo said of the track, “I couldn’t be more excited to collaborate with Tina Turner, who is an icon that I grew up listening to. ‘What’s Love Got To Do With It’ is one of my all-time favourite songs so to have a chance to rework it has been a very special moment in my career. I love working around timeless vocals and although it’s challenging to preserve elements of the original track and adding my own touch, I’m extremely happy with how it turned out!”
“Can’t believe I’m releasing a collab with Tina Turner this Friday!” Kygo previously wrote to Instagram while announcing the new project. “‘What’s Love Got To Do With It’ is one of my all-time favourite songs, and it feels surreal to get the opportunity to work with such a legendary artist!”
He added, “Can’t wait for you all to hear it. 🎶”
This isn’t the first time Kygo has collaborated with a music icon, last year he made history when his remix of Whitney Houston’s cover of “Higher Love” gave the late singer her first posthumous hit on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.
