"Rio" is the seventh single by Duran Duran, released on November 1, 1982.

The song was the fourth and final single lifted from the band's album Rio, and was edited for its release. It was issued worldwide in November 1982 and became an immediate Top 10 hit in the UK Singles Chart, peaking at #9 on December 11, 1982.

The song did not attract much notice in the United States upon its initial global release, but after the band's breakthrough hit "Hungry Like the Wolf" stormed MTV and scaled the American charts in December 1982, radio programmers paid closer attention to the catchy melody and insistent, intricate bass line of "Rio", and Capitol Records reissued the single in March 1983 to great success.

It is one of the band's most recognisable songs, mostly due to its famous music video, which is widely regarded as symbolic of 1980s glamour and excess.
