Yoko Ono Scores her 5th Consecutive #1 Billboard Hot Dance Club Play Chart-Topper With “WOULDNIT (I’M A STAR)” The Remixes, featuring Mixes By Dave Aude, Ralphi Rosario, Richard Morel, DJ Yiannis, Emjae, Denny Tstettos, M-Deep, Rob Rives and Timmy Loop.
YOKO ONO soars to the top of the BILLBOARD HOT DANCE CLUB PLAY CHART, once again, with her irresistible dancefloor reinvention, WOULDNIT (I’M A STAR) (Issue Date: 09/25/2010).
The release marks the pop culture icon’s 5th consecutive Billboard Club Play chart-topper following GIVE ME SOMETHING, I’M NOT GETTING ENOUGH, GIVE PEACE A CHANCE and NO NO NO.
It’s the latest release from ONO’s acclaimed remix series, which has seen the avant-garde visionary paired with an impressive cast of, established and emerging, contemporary music innovators including PET SHOP BOYS, BASEMENT JAXX, FLAMING LIPS, SPARKS, ANTONY AND THE JOHNSONS, PEACHES, JUNIOR BOYS, CSS, PORCUPINE TREE, APPLES IN STEREO and Oscar winning composer CRAIG ARMSTRONG.
To date, the successful series has spawned 2 successful remix anthologies(YES, I’M A WITCH and OPEN YOUR BOX) and 7 #1 dance singles including EVERYMAN/EVERYWOMAN and the seminal WALKING ON THIN ICE.
Originally appearing in 2 different settings, one on YOKO’s LP BLUEPRINT FOR A SUNRISE and the other on her IMA collaboration RISING, the previously bluesy WOULDNIT has been retooled into a surging motivational anthem courtesy of vibrant reconstructions by DAVE AUDE, RALPHI ROSARIO, RICHARD MOREL, DJ YIANNIS, EMJAE, DENNY TSTETTOS, M-DEEP, ROB RIVES, and TIMMY LOOP.
The song is easily one of the enduring avant-garde visionary’s most dynamic remix offerings to date and it’s meteoric rise to the top of the club charts has been nothing short of amazing.
The fiery anthem quickly ascended to the #24 power pick (Issue Date: 08/14/2010) before landing in the Top Ten at #8* with a bullet (Issue Date: 09/04/2010).
Then, just three short weeks later, WOULDNIT’ (I’M A STAR) seized the coveted #1 spot!
Not only is this a testament to the potency of ONO’s original work, it’s also further evidence of why she’s become embraced as the reigning queen of the dance scene.
It’s unbelievable that at 77 years young, the alt-rock matriarch continues to be a major influential force on the cultural landscape. Nearly 5 decades since first bursting onto the unsuspecting art and music worlds with her forward-thinking works, Yoko continues to evolve and thrive – both inside and outside the margins – still dreaming, pushing boundaries and challenging the status quo with her own unique and uncompromising artistic vision.
“WOULDNIT’ (I’M A STAR)” (THE REMIXES) and “WOULDNIT’ (I’M A STAR)” (THE DUB MIXES) are available now as digital green releases (no materials used or abused) on MIND TRAIN / TWISTED Records at iTunes and the TWISTED Records online store.
