What's Love Got to Do with It is the eighth solo studio album by Tina Turner, released on Parlophone in 1993. It was the soundtrack album for the 1993 Tina Turner biographical film of the same name, which was released by Touchstone Pictures the same year.

Overview[edit]

Turner re-recorded many of her songs from the Ike and Tina Turner period for this album including their first hit single "A Fool in Love". Three brand new tracks were also included, "I Don't Wanna Fight" being a top 10 hit in both the US and UK, her last major American chart success. The album also includes Turner's version of The Trammps' disco classic "Disco Inferno", a song she had often performed live in concert during the late 1970s, but which she had never previously recorded in studio. Two tracks from her 1984 breakthrough solo album Private Dancer are included as well, the title track to the movie and "I Might Have Been Queen". The album hit #1 on the UK Albums Chart and was certified platinum in various countries including the US, the UK, Switzerland and New Zealand.

The US version of the album omits two tracks; "Shake a Tail Feather" and "Tina's Wish". Tina's version of "You Know I Love You" was not the B.B. King song but a slightly different, more blues rock song Tina wrote herself with her band mates though she still credited the song to King on the soundtrack. Tina recalls singing the B.B. King ballad in her 1986 memoir, I, Tina.
