Kygo Puts A 2020 Spin on Tina Turner’s ‘What’s Love Got to Do with It’

Kygo has turned Tina Turner’s 1984 hit ‘What’s Love Got to Do with It’ into a fresh 2020 version, ready for the masses.

Kygo just released his Golden Hour album in late May and he is now back on the airwaves with this new cover. With ‘What’s Love Got to Do with It’, Kygo injects his signature tropical house elements into what is essentially already a hit, turning into something that will strongly resonate with today’s audiences.

On the release, Kygo stated: “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!”

Turner’s 1984 single ‘What’s Love Got To Do With It’ was the lead track for her fifth solo album, Private Dancer. The album, a seminal release for the singer, won three Grammy Awards, including record of the year, best female pop vocal female and best rock vocal performance, and in 2012, ‘What’s Love Got to Do with It’ was inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame.

Turner, 80, has previously said she’s happily retired and has no plans to get back to singing and performing. Speaking to the New York Times last year, Turner, who lives in Switzerland, said: “I don’t sing. I don’t dance. I don’t dress up.” At this point in time, it’s not certain whether or not Turner has done anything for the release, the vocals are likely from the original release, now re-packaged for Kygo’s production.
