“Opposites Attract” is a song recorded by Paula Abdul, taken from her debut album Forever Your Girl. It was written and produced by Oliver Leiber. The song was the sixth and final single from the album, and achieved success in many countries, including the U.S. and Australia where it was a number-one hit.
“Opposites Attract” became one of the most popular R&B and dance-pop singles of 1990. The single initially rose from #72 to #47 the week of December 23, 1989, and landed at #1 the week of February 10, 1990, where it remained for three weeks, matching the run of “Straight Up“. It became Abdul’s fourth #1 single on the Billboard Hot 100 and made her the fourth artist in music history to score four #1 hits from a single album, after Whitney Houston, George Michael and Michael Jackson. Although the single was released at the end of 1989, the song itself is considered one of the first popular songs of the 1990s. “Opposites Attract” also topped the charts in Australia, and peaked at #2 in the UK. It failed to enter the German Top 10, peaking at #13.
