Heart is the eighth studio album by American rock band Heart. It was released on July 6, 1985, by Capitol Records. The album continued the band's transition into mainstream rock, a genre that yielded the band its greatest commercial success. Marking the band's Capitol Records debut, it became Heart's only album to top the US Billboard 200 to date, and was eventually certified quintuple platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA). The album also yielded the band's first number-one single, "These Dreams",[6] along with four other singles: "What About Love", "Never", "Nothin' at All", and "If Looks Could Kill", with the first three singles reaching the top 10 of the Billboard Hot 100.[6]

In 1986, the album was nominated for a Grammy Award for Best Rock Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocal.[7]
