Supercharged is the eighth album by American soul/R&B group Tavares, produced by David Foster, Benjamin Wright and Bobby Colomby (former drummer of the rock group Blood, Sweat & Tears), and released in 1980 on the Capitol label. Supercharged is similar in style to the group's previous album Madam Butterfly, and although not as highly regarded at its predecessor, critical reaction is generally positive. Lead single "Bad Times" reached the R&B top 10 and #47 on the pop chart, the group's first showing on that chart since "More Than a Woman" in 1977. Supercharged made #20 on the R&B chart and #75 on the pop chart.
