"Runaway Love" is a song by American R&B/pop group En Vogue released in 1993. It is the first single from the group's EP, Runaway Love. After the huge success of their album Funky Divas, the single was released.


The song was written and produced by Thomas McElroy and Denzil Foster. Group members, Cindy Herron and Terry Ellis share lead vocals, Dawn Robinson leads on the bridge, and spoken intro is by Maxine Jones. Elroy and Foster contributed vocals and spoken rap, their known as the alias FMob group.


Critical reception

The Gavin Report wrote about the song: "It'll be a month before their new EP drops, but by then the queens of the hip-hop jams will already own the airwaves with this track. Writers Thomas McElroy and Denzil Foster continue to demonstrate their production genius."[1]

Music & Media wrote: "If you don't dig what they're saying, get the funk out! With one foot in history and the other one in the swingbeat era, these girls are moving closer to becoming the Pointer Sisters of our time."[2]

Commercial reception

The single was released to radio in late August 1993 and was immediately added to airplay rotation, debuting on the Hot 100 Airplay at #31 the week of September 4, 1993. The physical single was not released until almost two months later, after maximum airplay had been reached, resulting in the failure of the single to peak within the Top 40 of the Billboard Hot 100.

Failure in the single to chart higher was possible do to "Runaway Love" initially being available only on the EP. The EP had been released shortly after the single was issued and was considered an album not a single. However, the single manage to peak within the Top 20 on US Pop and US R&B airplay.[3]
