"I'll Tumble 4 Ya" was a hit single from Culture Club's Platinum-plus debut album Kissing to Be Clever.

The 7" single was released only in North America, peaking at #9 in the U.S. and #5 in Canada. In Australia, it was released in September 1983 as a Double A-side single with Karma Chameleon, peaking at #1 and receiving substantial airplay. With this single, in America, Culture Club was the first band to have three Top 10 singles from a debut album since the Beatles. Much like the group's two prior American hits, this song was aided by a hugely popular MTV music video.

"I'll Tumble 4 Ya" was one of the most performed songs by Culture Club in their live shows.[citation needed]
