From Pharrell to Jagger to Daft Punk to Madonna ... virtually every music superstar who's had hits in the last 40 years can probably thank Nile Rodgers for at least one of 'em -- and the legend ain't done yet.
We got Rodgers, co-founder of the classic disco band Chic at LAX, and the genius behind the monster hit "Get Lucky" told us he's hitting the studio with Keith Urban and Lady Gaga.
It's no stretch to say the man who worked with David Bowie, Rod Stewart, Eric Clapton, Duran Duran, Diana Ross, Adam Lambert, and Cyndi Lauper (to seriously name just a few) ... is one of the most influential musicians ever.
So, how about a collab with a certain 21-year-old Canadian and a Motown legend? First, check out Niles' chatting with our photog ... AND then his and Gaga's remake of "I Want Your Love."
