"I Got to Give It Up" is a song recorded by German band Masterboy. It was the first single from the band's 1994 album Different Dreams. It achieved moderate success in several European countries, becoming a top twenty-five hit in Austria, a top 17 in Switzerland, and a top 13 hit in Masterboy's home-country, Germany, where it charted for 19 weeks. In France, the single failed to be a success, reaching number 41, and spending two weeks on the chart. In 1998, "I Got to Give It Up" was re-recorded in a remixed version with Freedom Williams and Linda Rocco as featuring, and this version is included on Masterboy's 2006 studio album US-Album.
