Gwen Guthrie ‎– Ain’t Nothin’ Goin’ On But The Rent (1986)

“Ain’t Nothin’ Goin’ on But the Rent” is a hit song recorded by R&B singer Gwen Guthrie. Released as a single in 1986 on Polydor Records, the song became the biggest hit of Guthrie’s career, and the song’s title became a semi-popular catchphrase among many women throughout the late 1980s and early 1990s.

The song was a major hit in the U.S., mostly in dance clubs and on the radio, charting moderately on the US pop chart (reaching #42 on the Billboard Hot 100), but faring better on the R&B chart where it spent one week at #1 and on the Billboard Hot Dance Club Play chart where it spent two weeks at the top. The song was also successful in parts of Europe, reaching #5 on the UK Singles Chart, where it remains a ’80s radio classic. It also reached number-one in New Zealand.

The original 12″ mixes were by Mark S. Berry while this UK 12″ added the rare Dancin’ Danny D “Landlord Mix”.
