HUB ORIGINAL: Diana Ross Scores Second #1 Hit Of The Year With Mash-up Of Two Of Her Classic Hits

By Michael P Coleman

dianaross blog250When entertainment legend Diana Ross hit #1 on the Billboard dance chart with a remix of her classic “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough” early this year, she hadn’t had a #1 hit in over two decades when her 1995 hit “Take Me Higher” topped the same chart. 

This week, the 74-year-old Ross hits the top of the Dance Club chart again, with a mash up of her classics “Upside Down” and “I’m Coming Out.” 

Two #1 hits in the same year.  It’s a first in the legend’s 57-year career.  What are the odds of that happening?  Probably around the same as the odds of a skinny girl from Detroit becoming an international icon. 

The new hit will be available for download on the "NOW! Dance Anthems" compilation this Friday, August 3. 

I said it in January when “Mountain” hit number one, and I’ll say it again: 

Cher, eat your heart out!    Diana Ross is THE BOSS!
