"Naughty by Nature is the self-titled debut album from Naughty by Nature, released on September 3, 1991 through Tommy Boy Records. It was a critical and commercial success, having been certified platinum on February 6, 1992, thanks in large part to the hit single, "O.P.P.", which reached #6 on the Billboard Hot 100 in 1991. The album is now out of print. Additional singles released from the album were "Everything's Gonna Be Alright" and "Uptown Anthem", both of which were minor hits on the Billboard charts. Stanton Swihart of Allmusic claims that it was the most "contagious crossover radio smash in the autumn of 1991." In addition, Swihart considers Naughty by Nature to be "both a pop and a rap classic," as well as a "must-have album for fans of East Coast rap." In 1998, the album was selected as one of the 100 Best Rap albums by The Source."
