"It's My House" is a song composed and produced by Ashford & Simpson and sung by American singer Diana Ross on the Motown label. The song was released on October 20, 1979 as the third and final single by her album, The Boss.

While not fully promoted on pop radio, the song became a modest R&B hit, peaking at number 27 on that chart. In the UK it charted at number 32. The song was a top 10 hit in South Africa during 1980.

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.


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.
