"Break 4 Love" is a classic of the early house music genre. Written, produced and recorded by Vaughan Mason, the principal member of house music group Raze, the song's original credited performer. The song, the group's only significant U.S. hit, featured vocals by Keith Thompson and sexual sound samples by Erique Dial.
The single peaked at number 28 in the UK Singles Chart and it topped the U.S. Hot Dance Club Play chart in 1988. The song's drum loop is a reworking of the beat from "Today, Tomorrow and Forever", a 1987 song by The Castle Beat.
