I Idolize You is the third single from the album The Soul of Ike & Tina Turner. A different version was produced from Ike in 1966 for their famous album River Deep, Mountain High and reworked versions have been released after Ike & Tina’s divorce for digital download.

Released in November 1960 from Sue Records in America on 7“ vinyl, I Idolize You reached #5 (R&B) and #82 (Pop). The single was not released in England and Germany.

CashBox Magazine - November 19, 1960: (Sue 735) Team’s follow-up to their big pop-r&b dual-mart’er, “A Fool In Love,” can also come thru in winning style. Tune, “I Idolize You,” is set to an enticing middle beat rhythm and wailed with conviction by Tina. Ike’s ork and vocal group supply the tantalizing background sounds. A slow shuffle rhythm sets the pace for Tina’s infectious reading on the lower lid.
