"Saturday Love" is a song performed by American R&B singers Cherrelle and Alexander O'Neal. It was released in October 1985. The song peaked at #2 on the US R&B chart, and became a moderate pop hit peaking at #26 on the US Hot 100 in the spring of 1986.[1] It reached #6 on the UK singles chart, and #7 on the Irish Singles Chart. The song appeared on Cherrelle's gold album, High Priority, on Tabu Records and included an extended spoken dialogue introduction skit set in a bar.

In 2007, O'Neal re-recorded the song for his album Alex Loves..., released in February 2008. This version featured the vocals of Bianca Lindgreen, a long-time friend of O'Neal's. Also in 2008, "Saturday Love - 2008 Remixes" was released in a special edition EP featuring 11 club/house remixes as well as an a cappella. O'Neal and Cherrelle reunited and performed the song at the 2011 BET Awards and afterwards, presented the Best New Artist Award.

An interpolation of the chorus was used in Miami Hip Hop group Grind Mode's 2008 single "I'm So High", the edited version of which was referred to as "She's So Fly (I'm So High)".[2]
