61 years after Smokey Robinson brought the teenage Diana Ross into the Tamla Motown studios for an audition, her legend continues to shine.

On her first album in 13 years – and her first collection of songs since 1999’s Every Day Is A New Day – Miss Ross, as she likes to be known, still sings with all the elegance and elan with which she made her name.

Recorded in her home studio during the pandemic, Thank You contains plenty of throwbacks to her glittering past. As the only surviving member of The Supremes (Mary Wilson passed away in February) it is hard to blame her for feeling nostalgic.

There is, though, an element of contemporary feel about the album too, with contributions from Ed Sheeran associate Amy Wadge, R&B singer Tayla Parx and Taylor Swift’s producer Jack Antonoff.

With a headline slot booked for Glastonbury 2022, these are exciting times for one of the biggest stars to have ever emerged from Detroit.
