From Wikipedia: Bowie reached his peak of popularity and commercial success in 1983 with Let’s Dance. Co-produced by Chic’s Nile Rodgers, the album went platinum in both the UK and the US. Its three singles became Top 20 hits in both countries, where its title track reached number one. “Modern Love” and “China Girl” each made number two in the UK, accompanied by a pair of “absorbing” promotional videos that biographer David Buckley said “activated key archetypes in the pop world…Stevie Ray Vaughan was a guest guitarist playing solo on “Let’s Dance”, although the video depicts Bowie miming this part. By 1983, Bowie had emerged as one of the most important video artists of the day. Let’s Dance was followed by the Serious Moonlight Tour [which lasted] six months and was extremely popular. At the 1984 MTV Video Music Awards Bowie received two awards including the inaugural Video Vanguard Award.
