Tina Turner - I Don’t Wanna Fight - Promo

Billboard Mazazine
May 08, 1993

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.
