"Honestly" is a power ballad by the American Christian metal band Stryper. The song was the band's fifth single and their highest charting on the Billboard Hot 100. "Honestly" became one of the most requested songs on MTV.[1] "Honestly" is one of Stryper's best-known songs, peaking at #23 on the Hot 100.[2] It was Stryper's only Top 40 hit on the Billboard Hot 100.

Although it was Stryper's highest charting single, the critics[who?] typically described the song as being overtly syrupy or sugary.
