The song appeared on their album Boys For Pele with a remix by Armand van Helden.
Released as Professional Widow (It’s Got to Be Big), the track became a club classic that defined the era.
Anyone traveling in the late ’90s must have heard the song with its repetitive intro: “Honey bring it close to my lips, yeah.”
These days, Tori is still touring and making music, and she thanked her fans for their messages last month as she turned 59.
She wore glasses and showed off her signature red hair. She tossed her followers a wide-brimmed hat and winked.
