"Such a Wicked Love" is a song by American singer La Toya Jackson from her fifth album La Toya. A remix, produced by hip-hop production team Full Force, was released on a 12" single in the U.S. The album track "Does It Really Matter" was included as a B-side.

To promote the single, Jackson set up a hotline where fans could phone in to hear the song. Jackson's hotline, an early form of podcasting, reached 20,000 listeners per day.[1]

Jackson debuted "Such a Wicked Love" on "Bob Hope's Easter Vacation in the Bahamas", screened on March 25, 1989.[2] Broadcaster NBC's Standards and Practices department censored Jackson's performance, deeming her dance moves "too prurient" for prime time television.[3]

Jackson performed the song in Puerto Vallarta for Mexican television and in Caracas for the Venezuelan television program "Only For Men" in March 1989.[4][5] The number was also part of her September 1989 Sizzling Spectacular concert on pay-per-view at Bally's in Reno.
