You must understand how this remixed up jam makes my pulse react.
Did you wake up today thinking “man, what does love really have to do with it?” Then you’re in luck because after 36 years from its original debut, Tina Turner’s mega hit song “What’s Love Got To Do With It” has been remixed and released by the Norwegian DJ and producer Kygo. And let me tell you, I may not know what love has go to do with it but I do know this remix is fire!
You might remember Kygo from his previous remix of Whitney Houston’s “Higher Love” and just like he did with that bop, he turned Turner’s classic into a surefire dance floor hit. In a statement about the exciting collaboration the 28-year old said “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 favorite 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!”
The updated song is also accompanied by a new music video directed by Sarah Bahbah and starring Laura Harrier and Charles Michael Davis. The sexy duo portray a pair of star crossed lovers who have all the makings of a perfect couple but just can’t seem to dig down deep enough to make the relationship last. And while the subject matter might be heartbreaking, the video is beautiful and pairs perfectly with Turner’s iconic voice.
