Vitamin C is the self-titled debut album by pop singer Vitamin C, released in 1999. The album was a runaway success. Initially failing to chart, it later climbed the Billboard 200 to #29[6] and was certified as Gold and later certified Platinum by the RIAA.[7] The Japanese edition featured the song "The Only One" as a bonus track.

The album spawned two hits, the Gold-selling Top 20 hit "Smile"[8] and the Top 40 hit "Graduation (Friends Forever)".[9] The album features guest appearances by Lady Saw, Count Bass D, and Waymon Boone. On the track "Fear of Flying" Vitamin C samples The Clash's "The Magnificent Seven".[10]
