On May 21st 1982, exactly 36 years ago today, Queen released their tenth studio album Hot Space.
✨Hot Space marks a notable shift in direction from Queen's earlier work, employing many elements of disco, funk, rhythm and blues, dance and pop music on the album. This made the album less popular with fans who preferred the traditional rock style they had come to associate with the band. Queen's decision to record a dance-oriented album germinated with the massive success in the US of their 1980 hit "Another One Bites the Dust".
✨Most of the album was recorded in Munich during the most turbulent period in the band's history, and Brian May and Roger Taylor despised the new sound, being very critical of the influence Freddie Mercury's manager Paul Prenter had on him. Freddie even said of Brian and Roger in an interview that because the album didn't sell very well at the time "they hate me for it." 😍😄.
✨The album reached no. 1 in Austria and Netherlands
✨Michael Jackson, who was close friends with the band at the time, later cites Hot Space as an influence for his own album Thriller. (That's right 😎)
👉P.S. Personally I think this is one of the most underrated Queen albums which has many great songs. Like Freddie (and John), I'm a big fan of disco/funk music and I love the whole album but my ultimate favorites are "Under Pressure", "Cool Cat" and "Las Palabras de Amor".
What is your favorite song from the album?
1. "Staying Power"
3. "Back Chat"
4. "Body Language"
5. "Action This Day"
6. "Put Out the Fire"
7. "Life Is Real (Song for Lennon)
8. "Calling All Girls"
9. "Las Palabras de Amor (The Words of Love)
10. "Cool Cat"
11. "Under Pressure" (With David Bowie)

New single out today 💚Keep My Promises was inspired by the phrase 'a problem shared is a problem halved'. The lyrics in my head are a conversation between two friends - one wants to know the others secret and the other would rather not tell. For me it's feels very important to express how you feel and not keep it all in. Have a listen 🔗 in bio
What started out as an acoustic folky track has been transformed and we're so pleased how it has come out. Thanks to the band who played on the track - Chris from @premium_leisure @george_purnell and Patrick Boulton Let us know what you think 😘
