World Power is the debut album of German Eurodance project Snap!, released in 1990 on Bookmark/Ariola Records. The album received generally positive reviews from music critics, as the project's musical style and its vocalists, Turbo B and Penny "Tiny" Ford, were well received. It also achieved considerable commercial success with the help of four international top-ten hits, including its best-selling single "The Power".
Upon its release, World Power received generally positive reviews from music critics. Chicago Tribune writer Mitchell May gave it 3 out of 4 stars and called it "a dance record you can listen to", noting that "pulsating synth chords, slashing guitar riffs, thundering drums and the gospel-like wails of Tinny Ford combine to give Snap a riveting sound".Greg Sandow of Entertainment Weekly called the album "smart dance/rap, full of surprises". In his consumer guide for The Village Voice, critic Robert Christgau gave World Power an A- rating, indicating "the kind of garden-variety good record that is the great luxury of musical micromarketing and overproduction. Anyone open to its aesthetic will enjoy more than half its tracks". Christgau noted it as "in the great transcultural Technotronic tradition" and described its music as "crazy and radio-ready at the same time. Also funny". In a retrospective review, Allmusic writer Andrew Hamilton gave the album 3 out of 5 stars and perceived rapper Turbo B's enunciation as a flaw, but commended his "energy" and singer Penny Ford's vocals.
