"Naughty Girls (Need Love Too)" is a song by Samantha Fox that appeared on her second album and was released as a single in 1988.

Song information[edit]

The song was a collaboration between Fox and hip-hop group Full Force. It describes how a "naughty girl" has unexpectedly fallen in love. The Baltimore Sun described it as "not so much a song as a T-shirt with a rhythm section."[1]

In the US, "Naughty Girls" peaked at #3 on June 4, 1988. It was ranked as the 50th most popular song of that year.[2] It was also a top ten hit in New Zealand, Finland and Canada. The Full Force Naughty House Mix contains a sample of Boney M's late 70's song Ma Baker.

Music video[edit]

The single's music video features Fox with pink hair and a leather jacket in front of a graffiti-covered building. She is surrounded by street toughs who join Fox in a dance routine. The members of Full Force are shown providing backing vocals.
