Tina Turner fans are only just realizing her iconic song Simply The Best is actually called something different | The Sun

FANS of the late Tina Turner are only just realizing that one of her most iconic songs has a different name than what they thought.

Tina Turner died at the age of 83 on Tuesday, May 24.

She had suffered a number of health issues in recent years including cancer, a stroke, and kidney failure.

As fans celebrate Turner's music, they are just realizing that one of her most popular pop hits is called something other than what they thought.

Most people know the song 'Simply The Best'.

But, what many are just discovering, is that it is actually just called 'The Best'.

The Best was released in 1989.

It was originally written for Bonnie Tyler but was only a minor hit for the British singer in 1988.

Tina added some extra vocals and jazzed up the tune with a new soft rock production the following year, and it became a defining song of her career.

Fans are flooding Twitter over the realization.

"I wonder who will be the first person to bravely stand up and say: "Well **actually**, you do know that the song is in fact called The Best, not Simply The Best," one person tweeted.

"Simply the Best’ is actually called ‘The Best’. It’s that simple. RIP Tina Turner," wrote another.

In a statement, the singer's spokespeople said: "Tina Turner, the 'Queen of Rock'n Roll' has died peacefully today at the age of 83 after a long illness in her home in Kusnacht near Zurich, Switzerland. With her, the world loses a music legend and a role model."

Tina's cause of death has not been confirmed.

"My beloved queen. I love you endlessly. I’m so grateful for your inspiration, and all the ways you have paved the way," Beyonce said.

“You are strength and resilience. You are the epitome of power and passion. We are all so fortunate to have witnessed your kindness and beautiful spirit. That will forever remain. Thank you for all you have done," she concluded.
