"Bad Boy"
"Words Get in the Way"

"Bad Boy" is the second single released by the American band Miami Sound Machine led by Gloria Estefan on their second English language album, and ninth overall, Primitive Love. The song enjoyed much success following up on the band's mainstream breakthrough single, "Conga". The song opened the film, Three Men and a Baby.

Song history

The radio release and single was an edited and remixed version of the original album cut. It was remixed by Shep Pettibone. "Bad Boy" became the band's second Top Ten single in the United States, peaking at number 8 on the Billboard Hot 100, and reached the Top 20 in many other countries around the world. The single was certified Gold by the RIAA in the U.S. for sales of 500,000 units and by the ARIA in Australia for sales of 35,000 copies. The song landed at number 79 on Billboard magazine's year-end chart of 1986.[1]

Music videos

Two music videos were made. One was made at the Fontainebleau Hotel in Miami Beach. The other, directed by D.J. Webster, featured Estefan dancing with anthropomorphized alley cats,[2] led by choreographer Russell Clark, in the style of the musical Cats.
