"Sensitivity" is the title of a number-one single by American singer Ralph Tresvant. It was the first single from the self-titled debut album of the New Edition frontman since the split of the group. The hit song spent one week at number one on the US R&B chart.[1] It became his biggest hit, peaking at number four on the US Billboard Hot 100 and number eighteen on the UK Singles Chart. In 2005, British electronic duo Lemon Jelly sampled "Sensitivity" in their track 90 – A Man Like Me. In October 2004, "Sensitivity" appeared in the popular video game Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, playing on the new jack swing radio station CSR 103.9. The song is also known for being covered by Tejano singer Selena, who performed it with her band Los Dinos on April 7, 1991 in San Antonio, Texas.
