"Hide and Seek" is the first single from Tracie Spencer's self-titled debut album. The single was released in December 1987. It was written by Lynn Davis. Although Spencer was only 11 years old when this single and her debut album were released, critics and fans alike could see that her voice lurked some potential soulfulness. The theme of the song focuses on a girl searching all over for someone (possibly someone she has a crush on), whom she claims is playing "hide and seek" with her. After this single was released, the second single from her debut album, "Symptoms of True Love", was released in February 1988.

Chart information[edit]

"Hide and Seek" did not chart onto the Billboard Hot 100, but did chart at number 32 on the R&B/Hip-Hop Singles & Tracks chart.
