Poolside is the third album by the American pop–Latin freestyle–electronic dance music group Nu Shooz. It was released on Atlantic Records in the U.S. in the May 1986. At the time, the band was creating music in both the synthpop and freestyle genres. It was the band's first major-label release (an earlier album, Can't Turn It Off, was released by the Nebula Circle label in 1982 and a not-heavily promoted EP, Tha's Right was released in 1985), and it was responsible for its breakthrough on the pop and dance charts in both the United States and the United Kingdom. The album was certified gold by the RIAA later in the year for sales of over 500,000 units. It peaked on the American album chart at #27 and spawned three singles that charted in the U.S.: "I Can't Wait," "Point of No Return," and "Don't Let Me Be the One." In the UK, the album reached #32 on the UK Albums Chart.
