Purple Disco Machine and Nile Rodgers make 'Honey Boy' dance

It was a matter of time before Purple Disco Machine, champions of current disco music, and Nile Rodgers, icon of disco music from the days of Chic to the present, including his historic intervention in 'Get Lucky' by Daft Punk, collaborated on a song.

In 'Honey Boy', Purple Disco Machine and Nile Rodgers come together in the catchiest “oh ma ma” since Lady Gaga's 'Poker Face'… which was already inspired by the catchiest “oh ma ma” of the story, that of 'Ma Baker' by Boney M.

In today's Song Of The Day, Purple Disco Machine deploys its typical nu-disco base covered in shiny paper, while Nile Rodgers contributes his classic plucking, and both are assisted on vocals by, on the one hand, Jamaican singer Shenseea, known for her hit 'Shen Yeng Anthem' and, on the other, for Swedish producer Benjamin Ingrosso.

All together they deliver this infallible “party track” that is already competing with 'Espresso' by Sabrina Carpenter for the title of song of the summer, and which is immediately positioned among the best moments of Purple Disco Machine's career.

And, to top it all off, the video for 'Honey Boy' takes the song's title literally by starring a man covered in honey. He also feels the “magic” of “dance.”
