Thursday 8/26/2020 10pm ET: Feature LP 2020: Diana Ross – Supertonic Collection (2020)

Diana Ross will celebrate the spectacular success of Eric Kupper’s remixes of her classic songs with the Supertonic collection. The Motown/UMe album will be available digitally on May 29, with CD and crystal-clear vinyl editions to follow on June 26.

Supertonic is produced by Diana Ross and features Kupper’s remixes, with executive remix production & marketing By Brad LaBeau Co + Peter Nelson for Pro-Motion. All of the remixes have been created from original multi-track masters in the vaults of Motown Records.

In March, Diana Ross created history when ‘Love Hangover 2020’ topped Billboard‘s Dance Club Songs Chart. It became her fourth consecutive No. 1 remix with a song that was a No. 1 dance hit in its original version. Kupper’s 2020 mix of the 1976 smash is available as the first single from Supertonic.

The unprecedented fourth chart-topping achievement followed the history-making success of ‘The Boss 2019.’ This topped the same Billboard chart during the 40th anniversary of the original version leading that survey, becoming Ms. Ross’ then third consecutive No. 1 Dance Club Songs Chart hit.

As well as ‘Love Hangover 2020,’ Supertonic also features the three remixes that went No. 1 dance during a 15-month period: ‘Ain’t No Mountain High Enough,’ ‘I’m Coming Out/Upside Down’ and ‘The Boss.’ The remix of Ashford & Simpson’s ‘Ain’t No Mountain…’ hit the top in January 2018. An edited version appeared on Diamond Diana: The Legacy Collection. The original was a pop and R&B No. 1 in 1970.

Kupper’s ‘I’m Coming Out/Upside Down 2018’ mashup took just eight weeks to reach the dance chart pinnacle. Both songs were written and produced by Chic’s Nile Rodgers and Bernard Edwards and were No. 1 simultaneously on the same chart in 1980. ‘Upside Down’ also went No. 1 pop and R&B.

‘The Boss 2019’ was a dance No. 1 in April 2019, 40 years after the Ashford & Simpson-produced original did the same. Ms. Ross has now had a total eight No. 1 hits on Dance Club Songs.

Boss remixes
Also on Supertonic are remixes of two more tracks from the album The Boss, tracks from which were collectively listed as No. 1 dance hit. They are an up-tempo ‘No One Gets The Prize’ and a Latin-flavored version of ‘It’s My House.’ The 1970 top 20 hit ‘Remember Me’ is given a new R&B treatment, gets a smart R&B feel and both 1971’s ‘Surrender’ and the 1973 No. 1 ‘Touch Me In The Morning’ get Kupper’s remix treatment.

29 May also sees the digital release of Supertonic: Instrumental Mixes, featuring instrumental versions of all the tracks on the Supertonic album.

Friday 12pm ET: Feature Artist – Diana Ross

Diana Ross (born March 26, 1944) is an American singer, actress, and record producer. Born and raised in Detroit, Michigan, Ross rose to fame as the lead singer of the vocal group The Supremes, who during the 1960s became Motown’s most successful act, and are the best-charting female group in US history, as well as one of the world’s best-selling girl groups of all time. The group released a record-setting twelve number one hit singles on the US Billboard Hot 100, including “Where Did Our Love Go”, “Baby Love”, “Come See About Me”, “Stop! In the Name of Love”, “You Can’t Hurry Love”, “You Keep Me Hangin’ On”, “Love Child”, and “Someday We’ll Be Together”.

Following her departure from the Supremes in 1970, Ross released her eponymous debut solo album that same year, featuring the No. 1 Pop hit “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough”. She later released the album Touch Me in the Morning in 1973; its title track was her second solo No. 1 hit. She continued a successful solo career through the 1970s, which included hit albums like Mahogany and Diana Ross and their No. 1 hit singles, “Theme from Mahogany” and “Love Hangover”, respectively. Her 1980 album Diana produced another No. 1 single, “Upside Down”, as well as the international hit “I’m Coming Out”. Her final single with Motown during her initial run with the company achieved her sixth and final US number one Pop hit, the duet “Endless Love” featuring Lionel Richie, whose solo career was launched with its success.

Ross has also ventured into acting, with a Golden Globe Award-winning and Academy Award–nominated performance in the film Lady Sings the Blues (1972); she recorded its soundtrack, which became a number one hit. She also starred in two other feature films, Mahogany (1975) and The Wiz (1978), later acting in the television films Out of Darkness (1994), for which she also was nominated for a Golden Globe Award, and Double Platinum (1999).

She is the only female artist to have number one singles as a solo artist; as the other half of a duet (Lionel Richie); as a member of a trio; and as an ensemble member (We are the World-USA for Africa). In 1976, Ross was named the “Female Entertainer of the Century” by Billboard magazine. In 1993, the Guinness Book of World Records declared her the most successful female music artist in history, due to her success in the United States and United Kingdom for having more hits than any female artist in the charts, with a career total of 70 hit singles with her work with the Supremes and as a solo artist. She had a top 10 UK hit in every one of the last five decades, and sang lead on a top 75 hit single at least once every year from 1964 to 1996 in the UK, a period of 33 consecutive years and a record for any performer.

In 1988, Ross was inducted to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as a member of the Supremes, alongside Mary Wilson and Florence Ballard. She was the recipient of the Kennedy Center Honors in 2007, the Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award in 2012, and the Presidential Medal of Freedom in 2016. Ross is also one of the few recording artists to have two stars on the Hollywood Walk of Fame—one as a solo artist and the other as a member of the Supremes. In Billboard magazine’s Greatest of All Time Hot 100 Artists chart, she ranked 16th as the lead singer of the Supremes and 26th as a solo artist. Diana Ross ranks among the Top 5 artists of the rock era (1955 to date) on the Billboard Hot 100 when combining her solo and Supremes’ hits.
