"Runaway Love" was the first single from En Vogue's EP, Runaway Love. After the huge success of Funky Divas, the single was released. The single was released to radio in late August 1993 and was immediately added to airplay rotation, debuting on the airplay chart at #31 the week of September 4, 1993. The physical single was not released until almost 2 months later, after maximum airplay had been reached, resulting in the failure of the single to crack even the Top 50 of the Billboard Hot 100. This was because the single was from an EP, which had been released shortly after the single was released, and was considered an album (not a single).
The single reached top 20 in U.S. Airplay and top 20 in US R&B.
Cindy Herron and Terry Ellis share the lead vocals, Dawn Robinson leads the bridge, and the spoken intro is Maxine Jones.
