Tina Turner - Two People - Single

Two People is the second single in 1986 from the album Break Every Rule. Tina produced two different music videos for this song, including the „Hollywood Version“ in which Tina represents different characters. Both videos are available on the VHS release What You See Is What You Get. The song „Havin A Party“ from the b-side is an previously unreleased track. As a special bonus, the UK single contains a poster and the gatefold maxi includes live versions of Let’s Stay Together and Private Dancer, which were later also released in edited versions on the Live In Europe album. Tina performed this song at several tv shows for promotion and live on her Break Every Rule Tour. In 1988, a limited edition vinyl and CD promo single with a „Tender Remix“ from Ben Liebrand was available together with the album Live In Europe.

Tina breaks all rules — "Two People" is the second single from Mrs. Turner's current album BREAK EVERY RULE, which stays on top of the German charts for weeks and has reached gold status in several countries, including Germany, England, France, the United States and Brazil.

Just as the single predecessor "Typical Male," the new number was written by the team Terry Britten / Graham Lyle, who wrote most songs of the LP. The multi-talented Britten is also the producer of "Two People," a sparingly arranged ballad that leaves much room for Tina's voice. He also played guitar and bass and can be heard as a vocalist in the background.
