The music video was filmed in black & white and monotone and shows scenes with different couples and Tina wearing the same black dress as on the I Don’t Wanna Fight single cover. Unfortunately, the clip is only available on the Simply The Best Video-CD edition and is still waiting for a release on DVD, but is available on Tina’s official YouTube channel. An additional live video was recorded at the Blockbuster Pavilion in San Bernardino, California on September 15, released on the What’s Love? Live home video as a bonus.

Follow-up to the recent top 10 smash „I Don’t Wanna Fight“ is a pleading ballad that derives much of its drama and intensity from La Tina’s incomparable vocal style. Plunking piano/synth riffs click over a shuffling and percussive beat, with just a subtle touch of Hammond organ here and there to provide a blues subtext. Excellent cut from the soundtrack of „What’s Love Got To Do With It“ deserves instant acceptance at top 40 and AC formats.
