Eugene Wilde (born Ronald Eugene Broomfield, December 6, 1961) is an American R&B singer and songwriter, who had two #1 hits on the US R&B charts in the 1980s.
Broomfield was born in West Palm Beach, Florida and raised in Miami. He grew up as part of a family group, La Voyage, playing in local clubs. In the 1970s, the group became Tight Connection, and was later known as Simplicious. Broomfield also recorded an album with Curtom Records in 1979 as a member of Today, Tomorrow, Forever.
On learning Broomfield’s middle name was Eugene, his manager insisted that he go by that name professionally; the last name was inspired by Broomfield seeing an advertisement for a New York club named Wildflower’s.
In 1984, Eugene Wilde joined Philly World Records, and wrote and recorded his first hit, “Gotta Get You Home Tonight.” It rose to #1 on the US Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart, and also made #18 on the UK Singles Chart. After a couple of less successful follow-ups, he hit #1 again a year later with “Don’t Say No Tonight.” He also had some lesser hits, including “Diana” (1986). His track “Personality” peaked at #34 in the UK. Subsequent releases on the MCA label, solo and with the group Cabo Frio, were less successful.
From Eugene Wilde’s third album “I Choose You (Tonight)”in 1989, comes the single “Ain’t Nobody’s Business” and this US Promo 12″ produced by Gerald Levert & Marc Gordon.
