With high profile work alongside Daft Punk and Pharrell, Avicii, and even Disclosure, Nile Rodgers is one of the latest ’70s icons enjoying a massive resurgence. However, the Chic front-man has been reviving his Disco/Funk sound through assisting others more than hoarding the attention. It’s been a decade since Nile released a solo song of any kid.

That all changed today, thanks to “Do What You Wanna Do.” Keeping the up-beat, positive, party-minded vibe going strong, Rodgers’ lyric video urges people to let go of heady problems and remember the good in all things. Hasn’t that always been Nile’s main message? Can this break through, making Nile one of the best comeback stories in Pop music in recent years?

How cool is it that a sound can recur through multiple albums, looks, and variations?
