I Don’t Wanna Fight is the theme song for the movie What's Love Got To Do With It about Tina’s life story. After her last top ten single in America with Typical Male in 1986, it reached #9 on the Billboard Hot 100 and for the first time #1 on the Adult Contemporary charts. The music video is available on the Simply The Best Video-CD and was also included on the VHS release of the movie, but is still waiting for a release on DVD. Tina promoted the song at some tv shows and performed it live at her 1993 What’s Love? Tour. The song was nominated for a Grammy Award in the category „Best Female Pop Vocal Performance“ in 1994.

Turner makes her Virgin debut with a shuffling pop/dance ditty that stylistically lands somewhere between her comeback hit, "Let’s Stay Together,“ and Amy Grant’s "Baby Baby." The track clearly is designed to fit into current top 40 mold, though Tina’s distinctive and worldly vocal delivery gives it a necessary edge that sets it apart from the rest.
