From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Wild Pair (real names Bruce DeShazer and Marv Gunn) was a singing duo who were primarily known for their 1990 hit duet with Paula Abdul, "Opposites Attract" (in the video they were credited as MC Skat Kat). They have also provided background vocals on her other hits, "Forever Your Girl" and "(It's Just) The Way That You Love Me."

"Opposites Attract" was an international smash hit. In the U.S., it peaked at #1 on Billboard's Hot 100 Singles, #3 R&B, and #24 Dance/Club Play. The song was featured on 3 of her albums, Forever Your Girl (#1 Billboard 200, #10 R&B, RIAA certified 7X Platinum), Shut Up And Dance (#7 Billboard 200, #65 R&B, RIAA certified Platinum), and the 2000 release Greatest Hits.

"Opposites Attract" was not the Wild Pair's only hit. In 1992, singer Stacy Earl released her single "Romeo & Juliet" which was a duet with The Wild Pair. The song reached the Top 40 of Billboard's Hot 100 singles chart.
