Love Explosion was recorded in Europe and produced by one of the leading characters in French disco at the time, Alec R. Costandinos, who had worked with bands like Love And Kisses and Cerrone and also appeared on the soundtrack to the 1978 movie Thank God It's Friday. Love Explosion and its three singles, "Love Explosion" and "Music Keeps Me Dancin'" (both disco-oriented) and a mid-tempo cover of The O'Jays' 1972 soul classic "Back Stabbers", had minor success on the US and European charts. The album failed to receive any certifications and her record labels would part ways with her, making this Turner's last album on EMI (UK) or United Artists Records (US).
The album's track listing also includes two soulful ballads, "I See Home" and "Just A Little Lovin'", the latter originally recorded by Dusty Springfield on her 1969 album Dusty in Memphis. Love Explosion, just like the preceding Rough, was re-issued on CD by EMI in the early 1990s but is currently out of print.
