OTD. June 16. ‘I Want Your Love’ From ‘The Makeover’ Goes Number 1 on The Billboard Dance Charts.

June 16, 2007

From “The Makeover” full length

“I Want Your Love” Peaked at #1 on the Billboard Dance chart!

Written by Bernard Edwards, Nile Rodgers

Nile Rodgers who I’ve known for many years gave me his blessing and also dropped in his signature guitar licks – this is one of my favorite CHIC songs and it was done with the utmost love, respect and joy.


I Want Your Love Remixes – Revisited

‘I Want Your Love’ is a CHIC classic – written by Nile Rodgers and Bernard Edwards. It’s always been a favorite of mine and so I put my spin on it for my full length ‘The Makeover.’ With various remixes including the main version by New York’s legendary DJ Spinna. In 2008 the single ended up at Number 1 on the Billboard Hot Dance Club Play Charts and Number 1 Club Top 40 and Number 2 Commercial Pop on British Radio. Since then it’s become a staple in my live show as well..and for those that don’t understand the context, this is a reminder blog post about it. It’s definitely a highlight of many in this decade for me..just realizing that we are nearing the end one with 2020 on the horizon.
