Earlier this month, Billboard announced that someone had beaten the likes of Lady Gaga, Britney Spears and every high-profile DJ you know (yes, even Tiesto!) to the top position on their Dance Music chart.

That someone was a 78-year-old woman.

The track in question was called "Move on Fast," which this lady had originally recorded in 1972.

Oh, but there's more: this was her 6th consecutive #1 Dance hit in the 21st century.

- She's been active since the '60s.

- The original version of "Move On Fast" was recorded in 1972.
