Every Day is a New Day is a studio album by American singer Diana Ross, released in 1999 on the Motown label. It was released around the same time as the television motion picture, Double Platinum, in which Ross co-starred with Brandy. In the film, some of the album's tracks were performed by Ross' character.

Background[edit]

Every Day is a New Day was Ross' final contractual album released during her second Motown tenure, her final Motown studio effort until the label released her previously-shelved jazz standards album, Blue, in 2006 and would also be Ross' last studio album of new material for another seven years.

On this album, Ross continued to contribute to compositions, co-writing the bonus tracks "Free (I'm Gone)" and "Drop the Mask", the former once again addressing "the divorce album" issue with lyrics of romantic dissension. These tracks were only available on the Japanese edition of the album. Every Day Is a New Day was released in the UK with slightly different cover graphics and an amended track listing.

Chart performance and single releases[edit]

Every Day Is a New Day peaked at #108 on the US Billboard 200, and #71 in the UK Albums Chart. It also reached #47 on the Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart. A critical success in the US, the album produced her final hit single of the 1990s in the UK, "Not Over You Yet", which was remixed and became a Top 10 hit, peaking at #9 in the UK Singles Chart. Another remix of "Until We Meet Again" reached #2 on the US dance charts. "Sugarfree", the final US single, received urban adult airplay. The album sold around 100,000 copies in the US.[2]

Promotion[edit]

Ross continued to have a much more vibrant recording career outside of the US, though her popularity on the touring circuit in the US remained vibrant. She delivered several television specials throughout the millennium years.[3] UK TV promotion for the album included the ITV special An Audience with Diana Ross. On the special, along with past hits, the songs Ross performed from Every Day Is a New Day were "He Lives in You" and the single "Not Over You Yet", recreating elements of the music video with choreography. Singer Boy George duetted with her on the number one single "Upside Down".
