"Whatever You Want" is a song performed by American recording artist Tina Turner. It was written by Arthur Baker, Fred Zarr, and Taylor Dayne for Turner's 1996 Wildest Dreams album and is noted for its different levels of energy and strong vocal performance, its orchestral arrangement and complex production, courtesy of producer Trevor Horn.

The song was released as the lead single from the album and was the opening number on her 1996 Wildest Dreams Tour. The song became a moderate success on the charts, reaching top ten in Finland and Italy, while reaching the top twenty in the Netherlands, New Zealand and Switzerland.

The music video was directed by Stéphane Sednaoui and features Turner with futuristic special effects surrounding her. The special effects become more vigorous as the song progresses.
