"Rumour Has It" is a song by American singer and songwriter Donna Summer released in 1978. It was a reasonable sized hit for the queen of disco, peaking at number 19 in the UK,[1] number 20 in the Netherlands.[2]

The song was originally featured on Summer's Once Upon a Time album, a concept album that tells the "fairytale" story of a girl's adventures as she goes from rags to riches. This song is found towards the end of the album, when the main character hears that someone is "looking for a girl like me" and hopes that the man in question is someone she has liked for some time. One of the verses in the original version was edited out for the 7" format.
