BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1984
R E Q U E S T
“New Attitude” is a song performed by Grammy Award-winning American singer, author, and actress Patti LaBelle.
In 1984, Patti LaBelle began taking part in films, participating in her first acting role in the acclaimed film, A Soldier’s Story. Around the same time, producers of the film, Beverly Hills Cop, were busy putting together a soundtrack for the film, and called on LaBelle to record two songs for its soundtrack. “New Attitude”, a song about a woman changing her outlook on life both emotionally and physically, was composed by Sharon Robinson, Jon Gilutin and Bunny Hull. The song was different from previous LaBelle recordings, which had been mostly pop ballads with occasional stabs at dance music and R&B, focusing on a synthpop direction. Prior to that, LaBelle had recorded a similar synthpop song, “I’ll Never, Never Give Up” from her first gold album, I’m In Love Again, in 1983. It was LaBelle’s first MCA single, released in January 1985.
The song climbed to number 17 on the Billboard Hot 100 and number one on the Hot Dance Music chart in a remixed form. It also peaked at number three on the Hot R&B Singles chart. Patti LaBelle shot the first music video of her career with the song, which was shot at a fashion store.
