Foreign Affair is the seventh solo album by Tina Turner, released on Capitol Records in 1989. It was Turner's third album release after her hugely successful comeback six years earlier and although the album was not a major success in Turner's native US, it was a huge international success in Europe. The album reached number 1 on the UK Albums Chart, her first number one album there. The album includes the single "The Best" which has gone on to become one of Turner's best-known songs.

Commercial success

While Foreign Affair didn't perform as well as Turner's previous albums Private Dancer and Break Every Rule in the US, where it failed to crack the Top 30 in the Billboard 200, it was a worldwide hit, selling over 6 million copies. It entered the UK Albums Chart at #1 (Turner's first album to do so there) and went on to sell over 1.5 million copies in the UK. The album also reached number one in numerous countries including Germany and Sweden and topped the overall European Chart for 4 weeks.

Single releases

In Europe, six of the album's tracks became hit singles; "The Best" (UK #5), "Steamy Windows" (UK #13), "I Don't Wanna Lose You" (UK #8), "Foreign Affair" (Poland #7), "Look Me In The Heart" (U.S. AC #4 & UK #31) and "Be Tender With Me Baby" (UK #28).
