When disco is mentioned, one can’t help but think of the iconic band, CHIC. They churned out some of the greatest hits from the genre including “Le Freak” and “Good Times.”
Nile Rodgers is the only surviving member of the band. He resurrected the group with a new lineup. The latest incarnation of the legendary disco-funk group just dropped a killer new track titled “I’ll Be There” that will no doubt become a club hit.
Supermodel Karlie Kloss stars in the sexy visual. She connects the past and the present, as explained by Rodgers. She visualizes the past looking at old school vinyl – then gets dressed and goes out to a current party to meet up with Stephen Galloway and the current ?CHIC? lineup happens to be play. The clip directed by Inez and Vinoodh also features vintage footage of the original CHIC members.
The video is being released today because it’s the vernal equinox. What’s that you ask? It’s when day and night are the same length—and because there’s a solar eclipse in parts of the Northern Hemisphere. I’m already obsessed with the single and the video. Check it out below.
