All American Girls is a 1981 album by American R&B/Soul group Sister Sledge released in February, 1980 on Cotillion Records.

After recording two albums under the direction of Chic leaders Nile Rodgers and Bernard Edwards, Sister Sledge surprised the R&B world by working with Narada Michael Walden on All American Girls. The Philadelphia siblings had become identified with the Chic sound, and were ready for a change. It was a gamble that paid off artistically more than commercially. Far from a bomb but not as successful as it deserved to be, the album boasts its share of gems, including the hit title song (which, ironically, does have a few Chic-ish touches), the rock-influenced “He’s Just a Runaway” and the infectiously funky “Make a Move.” Interestingly, “Runaway” didn’t became a hit until given a reggae remix that isn’t nearly as exciting as the version heard on All American Girls, clearly one of the group’s finest accomplishments.

Four singles were released from the album: “All American Girls, “Next Time You’ll Know”, “If You Really Want Me” and “He’s Just a Runaway”.
