Originally released in 1978 on his classic ninth album Blondes Have More Fun, “Da Ya Think I’m Sexy” stands out as one of his signature songs, peaking at #1 in six countries including the US where it reigned at the top of the US Billboard Hot 100 chart four weeks in February 1979 and was named among Rolling Stone’s “500 Greatest Songs of All Time.”
ABOUT ROD STEWART:
Renowned as a legendary entertainer worldwide, Sir Rod Stewart remains one of the best-selling artists of all time, selling over 200 million records worldwide, achieving six consecutive #1 albums and six #1 singles in the UK, and notching four #1 singles stateside on the Billboard Hot 100—among many accolades. A two-time Rock And Roll Hall of Fame inductee and UK Music Hall of Fame inductee, he garnered both a prestigious BRIT Award and GRAMMY®, and he received the high honor of being knighted in 2016 “for services to music and charity.” His influence spans five decades and two generations of artists and only continues to grow every day.
Formed in the summer of 2015, DNCE first introduced themselves to audiences worldwide with the release of "Cake By The Ocean," their now 3x certified platinum-selling breakout smash. Included on the group's 4-track debut EP, SWAAY [Republic Records], "Cake By The Ocean" entered the Top 10 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart and became a hit at Top 40 radio, where it went on to become one of the most played songs of the year. An international success, global consumption of the song is over 7 million adjusted singles, including nearly 450 million streams on Spotify worldwide. What's more, the companion music video has over 281 million views on VEVO. Cementing them as one of 2016's breakout acts, the band took home the win for "Best PUSH Artist" at the 2016 MTV European Music Awards and "Best New Artist" at last year's MTV Video Music Awards. They were also nominated for two American Music Awards for "Favorite Duo or Group Pop/Rock" and "New Artist of the Year Un-leashed by T-Mobile." DNCE released their self-titled debut album in November of 2016.
