Billy Ocean has released a brand new animated video for his 1976 hit single, ‘Love Really Hurts Without You’, in celebration of his self-titled debut album’s 45th anniversary this year.
Pre-dating the MTV era, the single never had an official video, so British animator Malikah Holder has created an animated video which tells the story of how the track came to be, and the success that followed. After flying up the UK charts, the success of the single provided Billy the opportunity to find fame in the US, and set up a career which, more than four decades later, has truly cemented him as a music icon around the world.
Billy looks back fondly on ‘Love Really Hurts Without You: “It was the first song that I ever wrote that I really felt good about, and 45 years later, I’m blessed to continue my career with the ambition I started off with. It’s a joy to see a story I hold near and dear to my heat brought to life in this new video.”
