Eternal is the fourth and final studio album by the British R&B group Eternal, released in November 1999. It was the first album they recorded without former member Kelle Bryan who was sacked from the band in 1998.[1] The album had very little promotion, only peaking at #87 on the UK Albums Chart, but was praised for its more modern R&B sound.

"What'cha Gonna Do" was the only single to be released from the album and it gave Eternal their last Top 20 hit. "I Cry Real Tears" was due to be the second single from the album, however its release was cancelled and they parted ways with EMI in early 2000. Eternal also recorded a Spanish version of "Free to live", called "Libre para vivir", which was released as a promotional single in Spain.
