Naked is the debut solo album by English singer Louise. Released in July 1996, it peaked at number seven in the UK and the single 'Naked' was later certified Platinum for sales of over 600,000 copies.

Background[edit]

After leaving Eternal, Louise signed a solo record deal with First Avenue management. She was still under contract to EMI records at that time, and in October 1995 she released her debut solo single, "Light of My Life", which peaked at no. 8.

Six months later, Louise's second single "In Walked Love" (previously a hit for American dance-pop group, Exposé), peaked at no.17. However, her third single, "Naked", was a bigger hit, peaking at no.5 the UK. The album Naked, was released shortly afterwards. Two further singles, "Undivided Love" and "One Kiss From Heaven", also became Top 10 hits later in 1996.
