Rod Stewart hits number 1 with 'Do ya think I'm sexy' (1979)

In 1979, Rod Stewart released “Do Ya Think I’m Sexy?”, a disco-infused track that quickly rose to the top of the charts. The song was an instant success, selling millions of copies and spending four weeks at number one in the US. The track also helped to cement Stewart’s reputation as a sex symbol, and its suggestive lyrics caused controversy when it was first released. Despite its controversial nature, “Do Ya Think I’m Sexy?” remains one of Stewart’s most popular songs, and its impact can still be felt today.

The track paved the way for other artists to experiment with disco and dance music, and its catchy hooks and sexy vibes continue to be emulated by artists across all genres. If you’re looking for a toe-tapping tune with a bit of naughty attitude, look no further than “Do Ya Think I’m Sexy?” – it’s still as fun (and controversial) as it was 40 years ago.
