"It's My House" is a song composed and produced by Ashford & Simpson and released as a single by singer Diana Ross on the Motown label in 1979.

While not fully promoted on pop radio, the song became a modest R&B hit, peaking at number 27 on that chart.

The song was a hit at around the same time for Lovers' Rock reggae outfit Storm - and was recorded by a number of artists not well known beyond specialized reggae audiences. Storm's version was popular with Northern English general disco audiences, as well as in reggae clubs.

Covers[edit]

Latin singer La Lupe covered a Spanish language version of the song ("Es Mi Casa") on her 1980 album "En algo nuevo," which also happened to be her final original album shortly before she announced her retirement.
