"Come and Talk to Me" is a song by American R&B group Jodeci from their debut album Forever My Lady (1991). The song was the fourth single released in promotion for the album in March 1992. As the third number one R&B hit for Jodeci, "Come and Talk to Me" spent number 1 on the R&B chart for two weeks and peaked just one position shy of the Top 10 as a pop hit. The song also topped the R&B year-end chart for 1992.

The song was written, produced and arranged by Al B Sure and fellow Jodeci member DeVante Swing. The song features K-Ci as the lead singer, and JoJo, Mr. Dalvin and DeVante Swing on the chorus. The music video was first seen in the spring of 1992. There are 3 different edited versions of the music video.[1][2][3] A 4th brand new music video was shot & released for the "Hip Hop Remix" (or Radio Remix)[4] which was produced by Sean "Puffy" Combs. The "Hip Hop Remix" features a rap verse from Fat Doug, but he doesn't appear in the music video. The "Hip Hop Remix" track is only available on the "Come & Talk to Me" single releases and the Bad Boy's R&B Hits compilation album.
