I Don’t Wanna Lose You is a pop song, written by Albert Hammond & Graham Lyle and the third single from the album Foreign Affair in Germany and the second one in England. Tina promoted it at several tv shows in Europe and performed it live at her Foreign Affair Tour as a sing-along version with the audience, available on the Do You Want Some Action! home video from 1991. The b-side track „Stronger Than The Wind“ from the UK maxi was previously unreleased.

The music video was directed by Dominic Sena and produced by Aris McGary. It shows different scenes with couples and Tina in-between singing on a balcony, and leaning against a window. 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 November 1989 in England and in February 1990 in Germany from Capitol / EMI Records on 7“ & 12“ vinyl (poster), cassette and 3“ & 5“ CD, I Don’t Wanna Lose You reached #4 in Europe, #8 in England, #38 in Germany and was also a #4 airplay hit in Europe. The single was not released in America.
