Billboard Magazine
December 04, 1999

The mighty Tina Turner returns with a song that is so scintillating, so accessible to today’s pop leanings, and so, well, that it can’t help but launch the third coming of this timeless superstar. Produced by Brian Rawling and Mark Taylor, the team that catapulted Cher back to fame via „Believe" (and more recently, commandeered Enrique Iglesias’ „Bailamos" and new "Rhythm Divine"), this number has similar energy, with a bright-eyed dance beat and production so tight and joyful that listeners will be pulled in by the first chorus and singing along by the last. The feat’s already been accomplished across Europe, where this song was an instantaneous smash. Lyrically, Turner sings of the joy of liberation from a love gone bad — once the heartache has passed. It’s a positive message that will bring in a new generation of pop listeners, while allowing adults to crack a smile and tap a toe to the worldwide return of one of contemporary music’s greatest achievers and most-cherished performers. From the forthcoming "Twenty Four Seven."

A promotional 12-inch, with mixes by Hex Hector, was mailed to DJs the week of Jan. 3. On Monday (17), a promotional double-pack will be delivered to DJs; this will include Metro's very tasty "Believe"-like remix. A commercial 12-inch single (sorry, no CD single) will be available Feb. 15. Expect to see this gem soon sitting pretty atop the Hot Dance Music / Club Play chart.
