Heaven is a power ballad by American glam metal band Warrant. It was released on July 22, 1989 as the second single from Warrant's debut album Dirty Rotten Filthy Stinking Rich. The song is Warrant's most commercially successful single, spending two weeks at number two on the Billboard Hot 100, and number three on the Mainstream Rock Tracks chart. The track's commercial success has led it to becoming one of the best known songs by the band.
"Heaven" took Warrant's record company by surprise. Indeed, once the widespread appeal of the song became apparent, the band were instructed to re-record the track to lend it a "bigger radio sound". The first 250,000 copies of the record featured the original version while later pressings featured a new version. The song had previously been recorded by Jani Lane and Steven Sweet's old band Plain Jane.
The music video starred Scottish model Tracy Allan. It was filmed during a live concert at Sandstone Amphitheater in Kansas City, Kansas and at other locations around the Kansas City Metro area as well as New York City.
