Let's Dance is het vijftiende studio-album van David Bowie. Het verscheen in april 1983 en bracht drie hits voort; China Girl, Modern Love en de leidende titelsong die de nummer 1-positie in de Nederlandse top-40 behaalde. Let's Dance werd in Nederland het derde bestverkochte album van 1983. Producer Nile Rodgers was van grote invloed op de totstandkoming van dit album waaraan Chic-collega Bernard Edwards en bluesgitarist Stevie Ray Vaughan hun medewerking verleenden.

Let’s Dance may have had a ground-breaking sound and a popularity that Bowie clearly ached for, but it’s often a mundane album, as songs like Ricochet and Shake It mark time until a single turns up. (It’s possibly significant that one of the best songs here is Criminal World, a cover of a song by obscure Bowie clones Metro). But when Bowie growled, on another of the album’s excellent singles Modern Love, "I know when to go out, And when to stay in, And get things done," he wasn’t kidding. Let’s Dance was literally the template for 80s Bowie – blonde, suited and smiling
