"Hot Stuff" was released on April 13, 1979 as the lead single from Donna Summer's seventh studio album Bad Girls. Although Donna had previously been mainly been associated with disco songs, this release showed a significant rock direction, including a guitar solo by ex-Doobie Brothers and Steely Dan guitarist Jeff 'Skunk' Baxter. "Hot Stuff" won the Grammy Award for Best Female Rock Vocal Performance in the inaugural year the award was given out. The song went to the top position in the United States, Canada, Australia, and Switzerland.
