"Love Sensation" is a 1980 song performed by American R&B singer Loleatta Holloway, taken from her album of the same name. The song was produced and written by Dan Hartman, arranged by Norman Harris, and mixed by Tom Moulton. It was a hit on the U.S. Hot Dance Club Play chart, where the song spent a week at No. 1 in September 1980.[1] Hartman wrote “Love Sensation” as payment for allowing Holloway to sing a cameo on his track “Relight My Fire”? It was expected to be a crossover hit — and it only took a decade to happen. By that point critics and the public still couldn’t handle the concept of “disco”, but this would soon change.
