Rod Stewart is back with new music — and if you don’t know who that is, Google does.
According to Variety, Stewart is re-imagining his 1979 hit “Da Ya Think I’m Sexy” as a collaboration with former-Jonas Brother led band, DNCE. The song will be released this Friday, Aug. 25, marking the new found partnership with Republic Records, the Universal Music Group that’s home to Stewart, and other stars like Ariana Grande and Lorde.
The original “Da Ya Think I’m Sexy” was released on Stewart’s 1978 album “Blondes Have More Fun,” but didn’t become super popular until Feb. 1979, where it spent four weeks at the top of the Billboard Hot 100 chart. Stewart became a part of the UMG family in 2012, releasing three studio albums since then, being inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame twice, and knighted by the Queen in the UK.
DNCE formed in 2015 and features Joe Jonas on lead vocals. Their hit, “Cake By The Ocean” has 450 million streams on Spotify worldwide and they released their self-titled album last year. There latest video for the song, “Kissing Strangers” featuring Nicki Minaj, has over 41 million views on Youtube.
Safe to say this collaboration is going to be one interesting piece of work.
