Kygo’s Massive Edit of the Tina Turner Classic ‘What’s Love Got To Do With’

Tina Turner & Kygo Release "What's Love Got To Do With It" Remix: Listen -  Stereogum

Today , the dance world extends a particular fist pump of gratitude to Turner, with the release of Kygo‘s “What’s Love Got To Do With It” edit. The Norwegian producer pares down the beginning of the song to just a simple beat and Turner’s vocals before adding drums and then blowing the roof off with piano stabs and a wall of synth and Tina asking the song’s titular existential query.

Directed by Sarah Bahbah, the corresponding video tracks the dissolution of a romance, following a couple in love as anxiety, jealousy and distance drive them apart before the heroine reclaims her power via the song and a large bottle of champagne.

The “What’s Love Got To Do With It” is another victory for Kygo, who’s already having a big summer after the release of his sophomore album, Golden Hour. The LP is currently at No. 1 on the Top Dance/Electronic albums chart. Today Kygo and album collaborator Ryan Tedder will also be performing a socially distanced version of Golden Hour track “Lose Somebody” as part of iHeartRadio’s Summer Camp With the Stars series.
