Rush Rush is the first single released from Paula Abdul's second album, Spellbound.
Written by Peter Lord, and produced by Peter Lord and V. Jeffrey Smith (both members of The Family Stand), the song achieved success in the U.S. where it topped the Billboard Hot 100.
Rush Rush was a departure for Abdul stylistically, as it was her first ballad released as a single, following as it did the six uptempo singles from her debut LP.
Abdul laid down a scratch vocal for the track, which was never intended to make it to the song's final mix.
