Diana Ross & Eric Kupper - the classic remixes!

Here are the four recent remixes of Diana Ross classics by Eric Kupper. All four have reached No. 1 on Billboard’s Hot Dance Club Songs chart since January 2018, further cementing Motown‘s First Lady Ms. Ross’ status as a legend among legends!



“Love Hangover 2020”

Song facts: Diana Ross’s first foray into disco came in early 1976 and quickly became a classic. The song was topping regional disco charts in Billboard before it was officially rush-released as a single on March 16. “Love Hangover” was so popular that Motown abruptly abandoned promotion on another new Ross single they had just issued two weeks earlier - and one that itself was climbing the charts fast, entitled “I Thought It Took a Little Time (But Today I Fell In Love”). Does anyone even remember what that one sounds like?

“The Boss 2019”

The glorious title single from her 1979 album “The Boss” was an ode to the power of love and how little control Diana Ross - or any other protagonist for that matter - had over it. Yet the album and single’s title has often been misconstrued as a self-moniker on Ross’s part. It didn’t matter, because she practically was the boss on any project that had her name on it, this No. 1 disco and top-20 pop and soul smash included.

“I’m Coming Out & Upside Down 2018”

In 1980, Motown had intended for “I’m Coming Out” - the uplifting anthem from Diana Ross’s biggest-selling solo album, ‘Diana’ - to be released as its first single. But a late change of plans made “Upside Down” the premier single choice, a full month after the album had been out. Smart choice...”Upside Down” shot to No. 1 on the pop soul and disco charts that summer, making it one of the biggest crossover hits of the year. “I’m Coming Out” was relegated to followup status, but still with a respectable top-10 chart showing.

On this 2018 remix, it’s “I’m Coming Out” that gets top billing, as both songs returned to No. 1 in a mashup helmed by Kupper.

“Ain’t No Mountain High Enough 2017”

The song that many people associate with the beginning of Diana Ross’s solo career is “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough,” mainly because it was her first solo No. 1 away from the Supremes. Just over 47 years later it became the first of the Eric Kupper classic Diana remixes to return the diva to the top of the disco charts - ironic when considering it was the only one of the songs he’s handled for Ross that didn’t top the disco chart in its first incarnation. I’ll bet the legendary team of Ashford & Simpson didn’t have this in mind when they wrote the original.
