The album includes a massive 31 hits and coincides with the 30th anniversary of ‘When The Going Gets Tough, The Tough Get Going’, which hit the number one spot for four consecutive weeks in the UK on its release in 1986.

Billy Ocean said “It just seemed to fit perfectly; the songs that made me into the singer I became, and where those songs took me to. Hence, ‘Here You Are’."

He hit the number one spot across three continents in the 70s and 80s, counting no fewer than six UK top 10 singles. ‘Caribbean Queen’ stormed to number one on both the US singles chart and US R&B chart, and is amongst Billy’s six US top 10 singles.
