Tina Turner - What’s Love Got To Do With It - Soundtrack Album

What’s Love Got To Do With It is the soundtrack album for the same named movie about Tina’s life story and the first album for her new record company Virgin in America. Especially for this album, Tina re-recorded some old songs from Ike & Tina - some of them she hadn’t sung since her divorce from Ike. She also recorded three new songs, including the theme for the movie and hit single I Dont Wanna Fight. Tina performed this song live at her What’s Love? Tour in 1993 and at some tv shows for promotion. For the first time, Tina recorded also a studio version of the song Disco Inferno, which she performed live in her early concerts after the separation from Ike. The song „I Might Have Been Queen“, a remixed version originally from the Private Dancer album, is a little bit longer and includes the additional and never before released vers „I Look Up To The Stars Till I Find My Destiny“.

First effort for Virgin by veteran vocalist doubles as the soundtrack for current biopic on Turner's stormy life with ex-husband Ike. Majority of the material here is recut versions of such older Turner hits as "Proud Mary," "A Fool In Love," and "It’s Gonna Work Out Fine" (title track is represented by hit '84 version); new (and commercially very promising) material includes slinky "Why Must We Wait Until Tonight," co-penned and produced by Bryan Adams. Strong critical reception for movie should spice sales.
