Billy Ocean is the biggest black recording star Britain has ever produced, one who has sold over 30 million records in his lifetime.
He has collected a pile of Gold
and Platinum records across the world and hit the number one spot worldwide on
pop charts including the USA, Australia, Germany, Holland, and the UK. Billy
has achieved extraordinary success as both an artist and a songwriter
Billy got his first break when he
signed to GTO records, for whom his second single was the Motown-ish Love
Really Hurts Without You, which reached No. 2 in the UK charts and No. 12 in
Two top twenty singles followed;
Love on Delivery and Stop Me, then Red Light Spells Danger became a smash in
both the UK and the US.
Billy changed record labels and
his move to Jive Records provided instant success, with the million selling
American number one single Caribbean Queen (for which Billy won a Grammy for
best R&B Vocal), followed by Loverboy, and Suddenly, which became the first
of Billy’s killer ballads. The Album from which these singles came from spent a
year in the US Charts selling double platinum (triple in Canada). Billy also
performed on the American half of Live Aid, making 1985 a truly incredible year
1986 wasn’t bad either, opening
with When the Going gets Tough (the tough gets going), the theme song to the
Michael Douglas/Kathleen Turner/Danny Devito movie Jewel of the Nile. Billy
then launched the Love Zone album, which went straight to No. 2 in the UK
charts, staying in the top 40 for six months. In the US, there was a No. 1
single with There’ll be Sad Songs (To Make You Cry).
More Hits were to follow with the
now classic Get Outta My Dreams; Get Into My Car, giving Billy yet another US
No. 1 hit.
