Nine-time GRAMMY® Award-winning icons and one of the best-selling artists of all time Earth, Wind & Fire release a reimagined version of their classic hit “Can’t Hide Love,” titled “You Want My Love,” with 4-time GRAMMY® Award nominee Lucky Dayeand 12-time GRAMMY® Award winner Kenny “Babyface” Edmonds as producer. “You Want My Love” is the first of many collaborations to be globally released with Universal Music Enterprises (UMe) that fans can expect from the band in the coming months.

Featuring a topline vocal performance from rising singer-songwriter Lucky Daye and guitars by renowned hitmaker Kenny “Babyface” Edmonds, who also produced the song alongside Demonte Posey (Toni Braxton, Tori Kelly, Jesse J), “You Want My Love” fuses the groundbreaking musical sounds of Earth, Wind & Fire with a contemporary star. Lucky offers a modern take on the track and makes it his own, while simultaneously keeping the spirit of the original version that Earth, Wind & Fire fans have recognized for four decades intact.

 Speaking of the track, Earth, Wind & Fire’s Philip Bailey shares, “I am super hyped about this all-star collaboration – Earth, Wind & Fire, Lucky Daye, and Kenny ‘Babyface’ Edmonds producing. It was an honor to join forces with these two superstars, and I truly believe we’ve created a winner all the way.”

“This project has been fantastic to work on,” says Kenny “Babyface” Edmonds. “We really wanted to bring a tremendous, iconic song that is unmistakably Earth, Wind & Fire into the contemporary world of Lucky Daye. The goal was to create a reimagined version of this classic song that reflects Lucky’s unique voice and musical style, while still honoring the original.”

 Lucky adds: “When I first got the call, I flipped. Artists like me only dream of moments like this. I’m honored to be a part of the Earth, Wind & Fire legacy. I love these guys, man.”

This year marks the 45th anniversary of the chart-topping single, which was originally released on the ‘studio side’ of Earth, Wind & Fire’s double-live album, Gratitude, in 1975. “Can’t Hide Love” peaked in the Billboard Top 40 Pop, reached #11 on the R&B Singles charts, and earned the band a GRAMMY®-nomination for Best Arrangement For Voices in 1977.
