Billy Ocean’s first album in the 1980s was City Limit. This album didn’t produce a major charting hit. His real success came two albums later in 1984 when he released Suddenly. This album featured the single, “Caribbean Queen.” The single’s title was adapted to the regions it was released in resulting in several versions of the song such as “European Queen.”

Two other singles off of Billy Ocean’s album, Suddenly, became hits. “Loverboy,” and “Suddenly,” both broke the top five. This led to his release of Love Zone in 1986. The album bore two number one singles, “When the Going Gets Tough, The Tough Get Going,” and “There’ll Be Sad Songs.”

Billy Ocean would have one more number one hit before the end of his career. The hit came off his 1988 album, Tear Down These Walls. It was titled, “Get Out Of My Dreams, Get Into My Car.” It would ride at number one for two weeks.
