In The Spotlight

Wardell Piper – “Be Sure”

With an impressive career spanning over five decades, this first lady of disco has earned her status as a legend of the Philadelphia sound. Hailing from Albany, she started singing gospel music in church at the age of five with her siblings. She formed The Debonnetts in 1968, later called First Choice in the 70s and was a member of MFSB. She debuted as a solo artist with her self-titled album in 1979.

Sonically opening the shiny doors to Studio 54 like they’ve never closed, her new single lights up the dancefloor with its bright, discolicious vibes. With a bouncy bass, sprightly cowbells and velvety violins, this vintage jam transports us back to the golden age of flared pants, wide-collared shirts and flashy discotheques. And with her glittering vocals adding pure glamour, this sure is one groovy bump.
