Billy Ocean was one of the first Caribbean singers to be embraced by MTV, resulting in a string of Top Ten pop hits during his mid-'80s commercial peak. Born Leslie Charles in Trinidad on January 21, 1950, Ocean moved to England at the age of eight, and by his teenaged years, was singing regularly in London clubs. During this time, Ocean paid the bills by working as a tailor, but continued to pen songs and perform; he he issued an obscure debut single in 1974 under the name of Scorched Earth. But by 1975, the singer had dropped his alias and was going by Billy Ocean, resulting in a self-titled debut that spawned the singer's first hit single, "Love Really Hurts Without You," which peaked on the U.K. singles chart at number two and at number 22 in the U.S. Ocean continued to issue albums, including City Limit (1980), Nights (Feel Like Getting Down) (1981), and Inner Feelings (1982). "L.O.D. (Love on Delivery)," and the title track from Nights, the latter of which crossed over onto the U.S. R&B charts, were sizeable hits. He also began penning songs for other artists, including a track on LaToya Jackson's 1980 self-titled debut. Breakthrough success was just around the corner for Ocean. He scored a massive hit single in 1984 with "Caribbean Queen," a track that shot to the top of the U.S. pop chart and went Top Ten in the U.K. Depending on the region, the song's title and lyrics were changed slightly, resulting in the tune being known as "African Queen" and "European Queen" in other parts of the world. Parent album Suddenly was certified double platinum, helped by additional hits like "Loverboy" and the ballad "Suddenly." Ocean's winning streak continued with 1986's Love Zone, another double-platinum hit, which spawned a pair of hit singles: "When the Going Gets Tough, The Tough Get Going" (the theme song to the movie Jewel of the Nile), and "There'll Be Sad Songs (To Make You Cry)." Ocean scored another number one single in 1988 with "Get Outta My Dreams, Get Into My Car," taken from the platinum Tear Down These Walls. Afterward, Ocean stepped away from the industry to spend time with his family. His studio time decreased drastically. Time to Move On, released in 1993 and featuring collaborations with labelmate R. Kelly, was his fourth and final album for Jive. During the next 20 years, he made only a couple additional albums, though he did continue to perform at festivals and as a headlining act on a regular basis. In 2010, the MOBO Awards honored him with a Lifetime Achievement Award
