Yoko Ono has overcome the likes of Rihanna, Britney Spears, Lady Gaga and Katy Perry to score her sixth consecutive Number One on the Billboard Hot Dance Club chart with "Move On Fast." The song is her eighth Number One dance hit overall, and the latest in Ono's series of remix singles. The original version of "Move On Fast" was issued as the B-Side to her folky 1972 single "Now or Never."
"Move On Fast" is available as three separate digital EPs collecting 30 overall versions of the track, including mixes by Rich Morel, Timmy Loop, Chris the Greek and Ralphi Rosario.

Ono is hardly a newcomer to dance music. Her breakthrough hit in the United States was "Walking on Thin Ice," a New Wave/disco hybrid released in 1981 shortly after the death of her husband John Lennon. That song became a dance hit again in 2003 with a series of remixes by Pet Shop Boys, Felix Da Housecat, Danny Tenaglia and others.
