Emotional is the fourth album by R&B musician Jeffrey Osborne. Produced by Osborne, Rod Temperton, Richard Perry, T. C. Campbell, Michael Masser, and George Duke, Emotional contains Osborne's biggest pop hit, "You Should Be Mine (The Woo Woo Song)." The track peaked at #13 on the Billboard Hot 100 and #2 on both the R&B and Adult Contemporary (AC) charts. Other tracks that charted include "In Your Eyes" (#15 AC, #82 R&B)(originally recorded by George Benson), "Soweto" (#11 Dance, #18 R&B), and "Room with a View" (#29 R&B). The album reached #5 on the Billboard R&B Albums chart and #27 on the Billboard 200.

Jason Elias of Allmusic.com, who praised previous albums by Osborne, called it "quite a disappointment".[1]
