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

What’s Love Got To Do With It is Tina’s first number one single in America, released in 1984 to promote her upcoming album Private Dancer, while she was on tour with Lionel Richie. It was also a huge worldwide success, won two Grammy Awards in the category „Best Pop Vocal Performance Female“ and „Record of the Year“ and was inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame in 2012. Tina produced two different music videos for this single: A black and white (secret) version and the second official video, which shows Tina walking down a street in New York City, interacting with different people. Both videos were released on the Simply The Best video collection. The b-side track is a previously unreleased song, which was already recorded and produced by John Carter in 1982. In 1993, the song was used as the title for the biographical movie about Tina’s life story.
