Born & Raised is the second studio album by German recording artist Joy Denalane. It was released by Nesola Records and Four Music on August 11, 2006 in German-speaking Europe, featuring production by No I.D., Jake One, BAB Gardeat and executive producer Max Herre. American rappers Lupe Fiasco, Raekwon and Governor appear as guest vocalists on the album. The album reached number 2 on the Media Control albums chart, making it Denalane's highest-charting record to date, and spawned four singles: "Let Go", Raekwon-cover "Heaven or Hell", "Sometimes Love" and "Change". "Change" was featured in the 2008 blockbuster film Taken directed by Pierre Morel starring Liam Neeson. The song was played twice, once during the birthday party and again during the concert.
