“Lady Marmalade” has evolved quite a bit since its debut in 1975 and singer Rita Ora is hoping to bring it back once again.
The song saw a resurgence in 2001 when the Labelle’s original song was covered by Christina Aguilera, Lil Kim, Mya, and Pink for that summer’s Moulin Rouge film soundtrack. Both versions of the song topped the Billboard Hot 100 for several weeks.
Can lightning strike three times? Rita Ora told The Sun recently that she wants to recreate the song with some of today’s biggest pop stars.
On Monday (Oct. 12), “Lady Marmalade” was a trending topic as music fans shared their thoughts on Ora’s idea.
