Do You is the seventh studio album from Sheena Easton. It was originally released in 1985 by EMI, and later reissued and remastered by One Way Records in 2000, with additional B-sides and extended mixes. The album was produced by (Chic's) Nile Rodgers.

The sound of the album was a departure from her pop sound and has a more dance club feel. It includes the singles, "Do It for Love" (US #29), "Jimmy Mack" (US #65), and "Magic of Love." Released in November 1985, the album reached US #40 on Billboard's Top 200 Albums, and was certified Gold by the RIAA despite not having any breakout singles as with her previous album "A Private Heaven". The album has become a favorite with Easton fans in recent years.

The song "Don't Turn Your Back" was featured in an episode of "Miami Vice" television series in 1988.

On Feb 23 2013, Edsel Records (UK) reissued and remastered Easton's "A Private Heaven" and "Do You" on CD with bonus tracks, with the latter including the extended version of "Jimmy Mack" that has never been included on any of her reissues.
