"(I Just Wanna) B with U" was a single released by UK band Transvision Vamp in 1991 and was the first to be taken from their final studio album, Little Magnets Versus the Bubble of Babble. It was also the first of their singles to be co-written by Wendy James. After a two-year gap since their previous UK single "Born to Be Sold", it fared poorly on the UK singles chart reaching #30, although it fared better in Australia where it peaked at #16.

The song was released in several versions and formats worldwide.
