Nothing’s Gonna Stop Us Now by Starship was released on January 30, 1987, with Layin’ It on the Line as the B side. The song appeared on Starship’s second album No Protection and was featured in the 1987 film Mannequin, starring Andrew McCarthy and Kim Cattrall.
The song was a No. 1 hit in the United States, Canada, and the United Kingdom. When it hit No. 1, Starship’s Grace Slick, at age 47, became the oldest woman to have a No. 1 single in the United States. (That record was later broken by Cher at age 52 with the single Believe.)
Nothing’s Gonna Stop Us Now received an Academy Award nomination for Best Original Song at the 60th Academy Awards.
