Blue Pearl are an English electronic music duo, consisting of American female singer Durga McBroom and British musician Youth (Martin Glover).[1] They charted two songs on the US Billboard Hot Dance Club Play chart.

"Naked in the Rain" was a No. 4 hit in the UK Singles Chart and a No. 5 dance hit in the US in 1990, which was originally issued on blue vinyl.[1] It was followed by "(Can You) Feel the Passion" (whose melody samples Bizarre Inc's "Playing with Knives"),[1] which hit No. 1 on both Billboard's Dance Club Play and the UK Dance Chart in 1992, reaching No. 14 on the UK Singles Chart. They also had a Top 40 hit in the UK Singles Chart in November 1990 with the No. 31 hit, "Little Brother".[2]

Their records featured guest appearances from David Gilmour and Richard Wright of Pink Floyd, for whom McBroom had been a backing vocalist.[1]
