Billy Ocean is celebrating after the release of his latest album ‘Here You Are: The Best Of Billy Ocean’ soared to number 4, becoming his highest charting album since 1989. The ‘Caribbean Queen’ star is Britain’s biggest selling black artist of all time, with a string of multiplatinum hits. Currently on an international tour, Billy Ocean has announced a huge run of UK headline dates for 2017 where he will be performing all of his greatest hits from the new album and favourite tracks.
Billy said: “I’m humbled by the success of this album am grateful that people continue to find joy in my music. I have so many people to thank, but I owe this one to my fans.”
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 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 for him.
After huge worldwide success and with a young family at home, Billy decided to take a break to spend some well earned time with them. In 2007, with the kids all grown up, Billy went back out to perform his hits again, this time with his daughter Cherie on backing vocals, with live dates in the UK and Europe, USA, Canada, and the Caribbean. The tour was a great success and culminated in his getting the bug once more for writing and recording. 2008 saw Billy back in the studio for the first time in 15 years, recording his brand new album ‘Because I Love You’ - which was released in 2009. 2010 saw Billy back on the road again with his band in the UK, Europe and the US and the release of ‘The Very Best of Billy Ocean’, which entered the UK album charts at number 17 and sold 72,000 copies in 4 weeks. Billy recently headed over to America where he played to fantastic crowds in Las Vegas, Detroit and Pennsylvania, Virginia and Florida.
He has continued to tour the world visiting Australia, New Zealand, Sri Lanka, South Africa, Dubai, Nigeria, as well as playing the UK , USA and Europe every year. 2015 sees him celebrating the 30th anniversary of the Release of the Suddenly Album which included the No 1 Hits in the US Caribbean Queen and Title track Suddenly with live dates across the globe.
