Rod Stewart Teams With DNCE for Re-Imagined ‘Da Ya Think I’m Sexy’ (EXCLUSIVE)

Rod Stewart has new music on the way — a re-imagining of his 1979 hit “Da Ya Think I’m Sexy” that’s a collaboration with dance-pop band DNCE. The teaming marks a new partnership with Republic Records, the Universal Music Group label that’s home to The Weeknd, Ariana Grande, and Lorde.

The song is set for release on Friday (Aug. 25) with a performance slated for the Aug. 27 MTV Video Music Awards.

The original “Da Ya Think I’m Sexy” was released in 1978 on Stewart’s “Blondes Have More Fun” album and spent four weeks at the top of Billboard Hot 100 chart in Feb. 1979.

Stewart signed with UMG in 2012 and has released three studio albums since then: a Christmas collection on Verve, and 2013’s “Time” and 2015’s “Another Country” on Capitol. He is a two-time Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee and was recently knighted in his native United Kingdom for his contributions to music and philanthropy. Stewart is managed by Arnold Stiefel.

DNCE, formed in 2015 and featuring Joe Jonas on lead vocals, is best known for the breakout hit “Cake By The Ocean,” which has moved more than 7 million adjusted singles and registered nearly 450 million streams on Spotify worldwide. The group released their self-titled debut album in Nov. 2016. DNCE is managed by Phil McIntyre.
