The Jets is the first studio album by The Jets, released in 1985 (see 1985 in music).

The Jets gained airplay on MTV, VH1 and BET with the release of their first single "Curiosity". The song reached #8 on the R&B chart.

The second single "Crush on You" would become the Jets' most successful single. It was their first song to chart on the Billboard Hot 100. The song reached #3 on the Pop chart and #4 on the R&B chart. It stayed in the top 5 for 6 weeks.

The third single "Private Number" was a moderate hit for the Jets, reaching #47 on the Pop chart and #28 on the R&B chart.

The fourth and final single was the ballad "You Got It All". It reached #3 on the Pop chart and #2 on the R&B chart, and managed to reach #1 on the Adult Contemporary chart also. It still gains occasional airplay on radio stations in the U.S.

It was rumored that there was to be a fifth single released from the album. It was believed that "La La Means I Loves You", (originally performed by The Delfonics in 1968) was supposed to be the single. This was denied and the Jets were revealed to be working on their next studio album Magic.

The album would go on to reach #17 in the U.S. and be certified Platinum.
