DSB is back where she belongs – in the charts.
This report from Reuters tells you all:
“Forty years after Welsh vocal powerhouse Shirley Bassey first hit the Billboard Hot 100, she is back on a Billboard chart as her cover of Pink’s “Get the Party Started” climbs the Hot Dance Club Play list.
The rebound underlines the strength of her latter-day club and gay audiences, and provides the ideal aperitif to the March 18 U.S. Decca release of an album with the same title.
Of her durable international celebrity, Bassey says, “I didn’t mind becoming famous because I did it gradually. Probably that’s why I’m still here.”
