Foreign Affair is the title track and the fourth single from the Foreign Affair album, including several remixed versions from Shep Pettibone. Tina promoted the song on the German tv and performed it live at her Foreign Affair Tour in 1990 and the What’s Love? Tour in 1993. A live version is available on the Do You Want Some Action! home video from 1991.
The music video was directed by Paula Walker and produced by Natalie Hill. It shows a man and a woman in different scenes, acting like a bullfight. Tina, totally dressed in black, is singing and dancing in an old theater together with her band and for the very last time with her dancers Ann Behringer and Lejune Richardson in the background. The clip was originally released on the Foreign Affair EP on VHS, but is also available on the Simply The Best video collection on DVD.
Released in May 1990 in some European countries from Capitol / EMI Records on 7“ & 12“ vinyl and 5“ CD, Foreign Affair reached #35 in Germany. The single was not released in England and America.
