Freedom by Wham! was a UK number 1 hit on Saturday, October 20, 1984 spending 3 week(s) at the top of the UK charts. When Wham! went to China in April 1985, they became the first Western pop act to play a concert in that country. While there is absolutely nothing political about the song, footage from the trip was used to make a music video for the track, implying a more global meaning of the title. In 1990, Michael released "Freedom '90," a song about breaking free from the image he created with Wham! and in his early years as a solo artist.
