Tina Turner has revealed that she almost didn’t record her first solo #1 single ‘What’s Love Got To Do With It’ because she disliked its original demo version.
‘Love’ was handed to Tina as she mapped out her career comeback following her departure from the monstrous Ike Turner and almost was almost cast off as a reject before she hit the studio to record it.
Her fascinating admission below…
‘Love’ appeared on the album ‘Private Dancer’ and earned three Grammys for the artist and her collaborators Graham Lyle and Terry Britten.
Fun fact: The single was originally offered to Phyllis Hyman who was asked not to record it by her boss Clive Davis.
