Color Me Badd was an R&B/pop/New Jack Swing/"hip-hop doo-wop" vocal group, formed while its members were students at Northwest Classen high school (Oklahoma City, Oklahoma) in the mid-1980s. They are probably best known for their song, I Wanna Sex You Up, along with #1 hits, I Adore Mi Amor, and All 4 Love. They also appeared as themselves on a season two episode of Beverly Hills, 90210 ("Things To Do On a Rainy Day").
