Tonight is the third studio album from R&B group Silk, released in 1999. It was their first album in four years after wanting to be released from their contract over the lackluster performance of their last album. After they worked out their contract issues, they went back to work on their next recording. Tonight is the first album where the members have complete creative control over songwriting and production. They also have contributions from producers Darrell "Delite" Allamby as well as Maurice Wilcher, a singer that was formerly signed to Dr. Dre's label Aftermath Entertainment.

The album features the Hits "If You", which peaked at #13 on the Billboard Hot 100 (their biggest hit since "Freak Me" in 1993) and "Meeting In My Bedroom". Tonight proved to be their second most successful album, right behind their 1992 debut Lose Control. The album was certified platinum by the RIAA in 1999.[1]
