The song is a release of the album of the same name, their first in 15 years, which Ross announced for autumn.
In “Thank You” Ross stylistically follows on from her most successful releases in the early 1980s when she topped the charts worldwide with “Upside Down” and “I’m Comming Out”. “Thank You” exudes positive energy and addresses the star’s gratitude for her musical success. Troy Miller, who became known as the drummer for Amy Winehouse, was co-writer and producer. The video shows footage of performances from Ross ’career over the past four decades.
Ross was first known as the lead singer of the Supremes. Between 1964 and 1969, The Supremes had a total of twelve number one hits in the United States – almost as many as the Beatles. The trio is considered the most important girl group in US soul music and the female figurehead of the Afro-American music label Motown.
