What’s Love Got To Do With It (Kygo) is a dancefloor-ready remix of Tina’s 1984 No. 1 hit single What’s Love Got To Do With It, produced by the Norwegian DJ Kygo. The single was announced on Kygo’s Instagram:
“I couldn’t be more excited to collaborate with Tina Turner, who is an icon that I grew up listening to. It's one of my all-time favorite songs so to have a chance to rework it has been a very special moment in my career. 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!”
It's the third time the Norwegian DJ and producer has remixed a top Eighties single. Last year, he scored a major hit with his remix of Whitney Houston’s “Higher Love” rendition.

In the associated music video, Laura Harrier and Charles Michael Davis star as star-crossed lovers who, despite looking on paper as having a strong and playful relationship, behind the scenes the couple lacks a deep emotional connection to last. In the end, one of them must walk away. The video was released on Kygo’s official YouTube channel.
