Dionne, Dionne Warwick's Platinum-certified debut album for the Arista label, was released in 1979. It was recorded during the winter of 1978-1979 and was released late that spring. The LP was originally issued as number AB-4230 in the Arista Catalog. The disc stands as the biggest selling album of Dionne's 50-plus year recording career, with 1.5 million copies sold in the United States alone.
The LP would then yield Warwick's next big hit, "Deja Vu". This song, written by Isaac Hayes and Adrienne Anderson, became one of Warwick's signature songs. Other notable songs on the LP were "After You", "In Your Eyes", "The Letter", and "Who, What, Where, When, Why".
