"We Got a Love Thang" is a 1992 song by American musician CeCe Peniston, originally released on her debut album, Finally. The song was co-written by Chantay Savage, and became the second number one hit for the artist, remaining on the top of the Billboard Hot Dance Music/Club Play chart two weeks. In the United Kingdom the title scored number six, while on the Hot 100 it reached number twenty.

Critical reception[edit]

Billboard wrote about the song: "Duplicating the magic of the now-classic club anthem "Finally" was a seemingly impossible task. However, with the aid of producer Steve "Silk" Hurley, Peniston has come pretty darn close on this delicious pop/houser, on which she exudes immeasurable charm and the sass of a diva."[1]

Cash Box wrote: ""We Got A Love Thang" is an uptempo, club-oriented song that resembles her previous single, but still has a sound of its own."[2]
