She Works Hard For The Money
Label: Island Mercury
Though already an established superstar in the disco world, this album (specifically the title track) is what made Donna Summer a household name. Released in 1983, the album offers a mix of upbeat, triumphant melodies and lovelorn slow jams, with the Boston diva shining throughout. Key tracks include the reggae-flavored "Unconditional Love" and the exotic vibe of "Tokyo."
