Bucks Fizz ‘We were meant to release Tina Turner hit first’

Cheryl Baker and Jay Aston have said Bucks Fizz were planning to release ‘What’s Love Got To Do With It’ before Tina Turner.

Speaking to the Celebrity Catch Up podcast, the duo revealed it was for their fourth studio album, I Hear Talk. Cheryl says:

Jay adds: The fact that it was sung by a woman was so cool and edgy for the day. ”

Baker explained that the group will also be mentioned in the new Tina biopic. It’s not a very pleasant way, but it’s still nice to mention her,” she laughed.

Between 1981 and 1988 Bucks Fizz sold 9 million singles and spent 150 weeks on the UK charts. The band recorded his 11 Top 20 hits. This includes seven Top 10 singles such as If You Can’t Stand The Heat, New Beginning and Now These Days Are Gone.
