Everybody Knows is the debut album by UK singer Sonia.

Released in May 1990, the album was predominantly written and produced by the Stock Aitken Waterman team. Included on the album is the number one hit "You'll Never Stop Me Loving You" as well as the Top 20 hits; "Can't Forget You", "Listen to Your Heart", "Counting Every Minute", and "End of the World".[1] At the time of release, Sonia became the first female UK artist to achieve five Top 20 hit singles from one album.[2]

Everybody Knows was a success, reaching #7 in the UK Albums Chart,[3] and achieving a gold certification for sales exceeding 100,000 copies.[4] The album peaked at #144 on the Australian ARIA albums chart.[5] Sonia went on to score another UK Top 20 hit single soon after, when she teamed up with Big Fun for the single "You've Got a Friend".[6] Despite this, the record company Chrysalis later dropped Sonia.

Everybody Knows was re-issued by Cherry Red Records in 2010 with bonus tracks.
