"Bad Boy/Having a Party" is a song by American recording artist Luther Vandross in 1982. The song was released as the first single in support of his album Forever, for Always, for Love. The single became a top five R&B hit which peaked to number-three on the Hot R&B Singles chart, and reached #55 on the Billboard Hot 100.[1] The song was featured during the opening credits of the 1990 film House Party.
