What's up! Welcome back to
Mrs. Toon$ Soul Sundays. Featuring Cherrelle and Alexander O'Neal with "Saturday Love" & "I didn't mean to turn you on"
"Saturday Love" was a top ten US R&B hit, and a top ten released song in 1985. The song appeared on Cherrelle's gold album High Priority on Tabu Records and included an extended spoken dialogue introduction skit set in a bar. The song peaked at #2 on the US R&B chart, and became a moderate pop hit peaking at #26 on the US Hot 100. It reached #6 on the UK singles chart, and #7 on the Irish Singles Chart.
In 2007, O'Neal re-recorded the song for his album Alex Loves..., released in February 2008. This version featured the vocals of Bianca Lindgreen, a long time friend of O'Neal's.
O'Neal and Cherrelle reunited and performed the song at the 2011 BET Awards and afterwards, presented the Best Collaboration award. They still sounded good as when they first sang it in the 80's.
"Thanks for Tooning in!
