"Bad Boy" was 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".

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 #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 #79 on Billboard magazine's year-end chart of 1986.[1]

The video of the song received high rotation on MTV and other video music channels. Two videos were made with the second one featuring Estefan with the cast of the musical Cats. The song opened the film, Three Men and a Baby.
