Paula Abdul & The Wild Pair - Opposites Atrract (1990)
This memorable early 90s dance track was the sixth and final single to be released from Paula Abdul's debut album Forever Your Girl, and reached #2 in the UK and #1 in the Billboard Hot 100 in America during 1990.

The Wild Pair were Bruce DeShazar and Marv Gunn, and the rap by the cartoon cat in the video, MC Skat Kat, was provided by Romany Maleo who played George St. Cloud in the ABC prime-time drama No Ordinary Family.

The Street Mix of Opposites Attract features a rap by Derrick "Delite" Stevens (this was edited out for the 7 inch version) who also provided the vocals for the album The Adventures Of MC Skat Kat and The Stray Mob.

The song is one of three top ten hits for Paula in the UK. The first was Straight Up (also from her debut album) which reached #2 during 1989 and Rush Rush was her third and final one, reaching #6 during 1991 and lifted from the American singer-songwriter's secons studio album Spellbound
