The first single from his debut album, Love Is Not Sex, this dance song was a hit in several countries, particularly in Germany, where it reached number-one for four weeks. The single was released in July 1992, and was also a crossover pop hit in the United States, where it reached number 17 on the Billboard Hot 100 in June 1993. The song remained in the Top 40 for 12 weeks and, to date, it is Captain Hollywood Project's only pop hit in the U.S.
