"I'm Coming Out" was a hit single released by Motown singer Diana Ross in 1980, written and produced by Chic members Bernard Edwards and Nile Rodgers for her album "diana". In 1979, Ross commissioned Rodgers and Edwards to create material for a new album, following the success of her final Ashford & Simpson-composed and produced LP "The Boss", after taking her daughters to see Chic in concert. Rodgers got the idea for "I'm Coming Out", originally written for Aretha Franklin, after noticing three different drag queens dressed as Diana Ross at a New York club called the GG Barnum Room. The lyrics hold an additional meaning to Ross, as she was leaving Motown Records after that album and 'coming out' from under the thumb of Berry Gordy. The song was a hit, peaking at number five on the U.S. Pop Singles chart. It is also notable for being the first song usually performed at Ross' performances and concerts since 1980. Rodgers convinced his neighbor, producer Meco Monardo, to contract the horns for the album in return for a commitment by Rodgers to co-produce Monardo's then-upcoming album of music from the film "The Empire Strikes Back". Monardo, a former first-call session player who had a string of hits in the late 1970s with disco versions of music from movies such as "Star Wars", also played trombone on the album and is featured in a solo towards the end of "I'm Coming Out". The song has been sampled many times over the years, most notably by Stevie J, who used a sample on the late rapper The Notorious B.I.G.'s 1997 hit single "Mo Money Mo Problems". This channel is dedicated to all the great 'old school' R&B music I grew up with, the stuff that originally made me tap my feet and want to be a DJ. Funk, soul, disco, R&B, dance, hip-hop, pop . . . 60s, 70s, 80s . . . whatever you call it, it's all 'Old School' and it's all here!
