Billboard - February 02, 1989

Turner-Cray duet to get Dutch debut. Benelux is building a reputation as a test territory for Tina Turner’s duet recordings. Late last year her „Tonight“ single with David Bowie was released first in Holland, stayed three weeks at No. 1, and was then rush-released in other European territories. Now Holland is the first country to get 634-5789, Turner’s new duet with Robert Cray. The Capitol release is distributed here by EMI Bovema.
