Exposé is the third album released by the group Exposé. The album's music style is less Latin influenced than their previous albums with more adult contemporary material. The album features more of Ann Curless on lead vocals; she sings lead on "I Think I'm in Trouble," "As Long as I Can Dream," "In Walked Love," and "Angel." This album marks the debut of Kelly Moneymaker as a member of the group.

For the track "I Specialize in Love," Jeanette Jurado (who provides the lead vocals for the majority of the album) sings co-lead with Curless, and then shares lead vocals with Curless and Moneymaker during the final bridge.

"I Specialize in Love", "Angel", and "The Same Love" are the only songs on the album that are covers of previously recorded songs. 'Angel' was written and recorded by Maria Vidal in 1987. "I Specialize in Love" was a dance hit for Sharon Brown in 1982, while "The Same Love" was a minor hit for the Jets in 1989.

The album was recorded at several studios in the United States—The Hit Factory, Home Boy Recording Studio, Right Track Studios, Sabella Recording Studios, River Sound, Sear Sound, Countdown Recording Studios, Criterion Studios, Conway Recording Studios, Music Grinder—as well as H'Appeny Bridge in the United Kingdom and Soundtrack Recording. The song "I Specialize in Love" was recorded at The Hit Factory, H'Appeny and Soundtrack Recording.
