"Alright" is the first single released from Kris Kross' second album Da Bomb. The song was produced and written by Jermaine Dupri and featured reggae star, Super Cat on the chorus.

Sampling Slave's "Just a Touch of Love", "Alright" was officially released on July 13, 1993 as the lead single from Da Bomb and became the album's biggest hit, peaking at #19 on the Billboard Hot 100 and was the duo's third single to reach #1 on the Hot Rap Singles ("Jump" and "Warm It Up" being the first two). "Alright" also contains a diss to rival group, Da Youngstas, who had been critical of Kris Kross due to their success on the Billboard charts and the fact that they did not write their lyrics. Chris Kelly AKA "Mac Daddy" responded with the lyric "I didn't come out wack I came out right, unlike them moles who choose to pass da mic", an obvious reference to Da Youngstas single "Pass da Mic".

"Alright" was certified gold by the RIAA on September 14, 1993 for sales of over 500,000 copies.
