Donny Osmond is a 1989 album released by Donny Osmond. It was released on Capitol Records. It is notable for featuring the number 2 smash hit, "Soldier of Love", which Randall Popken, Alice Newsome and Lanell Gonzales called "a faintly suggestive tune set to a post-disco beat." It was released as a tune by a "mystery singer", as Osmond's promoter feared that no one would buy the album if the singer was revealed.
The album is also notable for featuring five songs that Osmond co-wrote, and for Osmond also handling drum programming and keyboards on several tracks. In addition to "Soldier of Love," it featured four other charting singles: "Sacred Emotion" (another big radio hit), "Hold On," "I'll Be Good to You," and "If It's Love That You Want." Another single, "I'm In It For Love," featured only as a bonus track on some copies of the compact disc, had become a minor UK hit prior to the success of "Soldier of Love."
