Diane said of the collaboration: ‘When I wrote Gonna Be You for 80 For Brady, I wanted to write a song that celebrated these women’s deep friendship.

‘Since 80 was in the title, I got a crazy idea, why not get some of the most iconic singers from the 80s, who are still amazing and always will be, to all sing it?!!!!’ she added.

She went on to explain that all the female singers she approached said yes to the project, and she came away with an all-star line-up.

Diane added: ‘Everyone I approached said yes and was just as excited as me! I’m honored to have Dolly Parton, Belinda Carlisle, Cyndi Lauper, Gloria Estefan, and Debbie Harry on this song! Gonna Be You is that song you want to sing along to with all your good friends!’

Dolly recently collaborated with her goddaughter Miley Cyrus for Miley’s New Year’s Eve Party.

The pair sang several hits together and even had a wardrobe change mid-show. Dolly started out in a black jumpsuit with sheer material covering her arms and running down the sides of her legs.

Miley wore a skintight black dress that ended high on her thighs. After the change, Dolly wore a white gown, and Miley wore a black one.

Together they sang I Love Rock ‘n’ Roll, Wrecking Ball, and I Will Always Love You.
