In My Mind is the second studio album by Trinidadian R&B-soul singer Heather Headley, released on January 31, 2006 by RCA Records. The album was delayed due to the Sony BMG merger, and Headley jokingly stated that it should be titled Caught Up.[5] Heather’s In My Mind album debuted in 2006, which is her first succeeding single album. Heather Headley worked with top-notch producers such as Jimmy Jam & Terry Lewis, Ne-Yo, Warryn Campbell, and Lil’ Jon. The track named after the album became her first #1 in the Dance Charts.[6] The album debuted at number five on the Billboard 200 and number one on the Billboard Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums with first-week sales of 95,000 copies.[7] On May 17, 2006, the RIAA certified In My Mind gold for shipments of 500,000 units within the United States.[8]
