“What’s Love Got To Do With It” -- Turner’s iconic no. 1 song was inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame and is included in Rolling Stone Magazine’s list of “The 500 Greatest Songs of All Time” -- comes alongside a brand new video directed by Sarah Bahbah and stars Laura Harrier (HollywoodBlackkklansman) and Charles Michael Davis (The Originals, The Vampire Diaries). 

“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,” Turner says.

“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 diva adds.

It’s been a big summer for Kygo who back in May released his critically acclaimed third full-length album Golden Hour  which features his hit single  “Lose Somebody” with OneRepublic as well as “Higher Love” with Whitney Houston, the latter of which has more than 651 million audio and video streams combined and charted at Top 40 radio. 

Kygo kicked off his album release day with performances of “Lose Somebody” with OneRepublic and “The Truth” with Valerie Broussard on  Good Morning America’s Summer Concert Series and performed on NBC’s The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon with OneRepublic on July 22.
