Dolly Parton & Linda Perry bring back the ’90s and warm our hearts with ‘What’s Up’

Dolly Parton has always had a way of connecting with our souls through her music. And just when you thought you’ve heard it all, she surprises us with a new melody that captures our imagination.

Recently, Dolly introduced her rendition of the 1993 hit “What’s Up?” by 4 Non Blondes. But here’s the exciting part: she teamed up with the song’s original creator, Linda Perry, to create a refreshing video clip that brings the melody to life.

This collaboration is more than just a partnership; it’s a meeting of musical minds. Linda Perry, known for crafting iconic songs for talented artists like Christina Aguilera and Adele, adds a depth that merges seamlessly with Dolly’s timeless voice.

The video takes place in a Nashville elementary school, but it’s not just a visual treat. It’s also a testament to Dolly’s dedication to children and literacy. Through her Imagination Library project, she has shared the joy of reading with countless young souls, distributing over 200 million books since 1995.

Linda Perry responded to Dolly’s take on “What’s Up?” with sheer admiration. There’s something magical about how Dolly can take a song and add her special touch, making it both familiar and new. Their time together on set wasn’t just about making a video, but also about sharing moments, stories, and laughter.

But this is just one chapter in Dolly’s ongoing musical story. Her album promises a mix of incredible tunes, featuring appearances from music legends like Sting and Joan Jett, with a special touch from Dolly’s goddaughter, Miley Cyrus. It’s a true testament to Dolly’s ability to evolve, adapt, and continue enchanting us.

Reflecting on this project, Dolly shared, “I love being a part of this video, hoping it makes people reflect on today’s world.” True to her form, she’s not just giving us a song; she’s starting a conversation. It’s an invitation to feel and reflect.
