Gwen Guthrie - Ain't nothing going on but the rent (Ruud's Extended Edit)
Published at : 14 Dec 2020
"Ain't Nothin' Goin' On but the Rent" is a song by American singer Gwen Guthrie. The song was a major hit on both sides of Atlantic, mostly in dance clubs and on the radio, charting moderately on the US pop chart, it spent one week at number-one. The song was also successful in parts of Europe, reaching number 5 on the UK Singles Chart.
The song contains apparent references to at least three other songs:
The line "Ain't nothing goin' on now, but the rent-uh" appears in the 1972 James Brown hit "Get on the Good Foot — Pt. 1".
The line "You got to have a J-O-B if you want to be-with-me" is set to a melody line that recurs throughout "Doctor Love", a 1977 disco hit by First Choice.
The line "Nothing from nothing leaves nothing" is taken from Billy Preston's 1974 hit song of the same name.
I edited the song a bit, using the instrumental track and the album version.
