Nice N' Wild, also known as Nice & Wild, was an U.S. Freestyle music group that rose to fame in 1986 after their release of "Diamond Girl".[1]

Former band members included David Torres, Reggie Pierre and Remy Palacios. The group has since broken up. The original vocals were never performed by the performance group but rather lip synced. David Torres did sing the Spanish parts after completing vocal training. The final record track was recorded by John Minnis and the origination demo vocal was performed by David L Cook.[2] Many believed that Stevie B was the original vocalist of the song, but that proved to be false. The song was written and produced by Joe Granda in 1986.[3]
