Give It Up is a song by American disco group KC and the Sunshine Band, although it was simply credited as KC in many countries, including the US. Following the backlash against many disco artists on the charts at the beginning of the 1980s, the song was a comeback hit for the act in the US. Epic Records refused to release it; however, the independent Meca Records label showed its support and the song peaked at No.18 on the Billboard Hot 100 in March 1984. The song had been an even bigger hit in the UK several months earlier, where it had hit No. 1 for three weeks in August 1983. It went on to become the 18th best-selling single of the year in the UK.
Betty Wright is most known for the '71-'72 hit "Clean Up Woman". Danger High Voltage is her second album, released in 1974, and all over this record you can hear disco coming around the corner. I like her version of the Young Rascals' "Come On Up", but the two standout tracks are "Shoorah! Shoorah!" (🔥🔥🔥), which always keeps the party going on the dancefloor and "Tonight is the Night" takes it to the bedroom. "Where is the Love" is the track for you #disco fans. Overall a decent record from a legend in the game. >>>Wikipedia-'Another successful composition was the proto-disco number, "Where Is the Love" (co-written by Wright, with producers, #HarryWayneCasey and #RichardFinch , from #KCandtheSunshineBand ). This peaked at number 15 on the R&B chart, number two on the dance charts and crossed over to the #UK , peaking at number 25, leading Wright to perform overseas. Wright later won the Best #RandB Song #GrammyAward for composing " #WhereIstheLove ". A second prominent overseas hit was another #protodisco number, " #ShoorahShoorah !", issued on #Alston and written by #AllenToussaint . Both songs appeared on one of Wright's most popular albums, #DangerHighVoltage , released in late #1974 . It would be on this album that Wright would have her most successful composition, with the smooth soul ballad, " #TonightIstheNight ", which Wright attributed to her first sexual experiences. The original version peaked at number 28 on the #R &B chart.' #bettywright#recordoftheday#soulful#soulmusic#records
Keep it comin’, love! Quality cousin time, great dinner at The Boll Weevil, and putting on our boogie shoes with KC and the Sunshine Band was 👌🏻 KC: “If you’re wondering who I am, I was your mother’s N’Sync. Get a good look at me because this is what Justin Timberlake is going to look like in 30 years.” 😂
Sorry for the bouncy video in “Boogie Shoes”—that is my absolute favorite happy dance song. I couldn’t stay still! 🤷🏻♀️💃
