Baby Woman (stylized as babywoman) is the debut studio album by English fashion model Naomi Campbell, released on October 3, 1994 by Epic Records. The album remains her only full-length music release to date. Campbell collaborated with a number of producers and songwriters, including Gavin Friday, Tim Simenon, Youth, Justin Strauss, Bruce Roberts and P.M. Dawn. Musically, babywoman is an R&B album that also fuses different genres, such as house, trip hop or country.

Upon its release, the album received generally negative reviews from music critics and was a commercial failure in the United Kingdom, where it didn't reach a higher position than 75 on the UK Albums Chart. However, the album was a success in Japan and sold over 1 million copies worldwide. Two singles were released from the album; "Love & Tears", which reached number 40 on the UK Singles Chart and "I Want to Live".
