Body & Soul is Rick Astley's fourth album, released in 1993. It is generally considered to have been a flop[who?], failing to enter the UK album chart. The album charted for a week at number 185 on Billboard 200 and reached number 28 in Italy.[3] Two singles were released from the album. After this album, Astley left the music business behind for several years and released no new material until 2001.
