Reaching Out (1984) is Menudo's 14th album and the first one in English.

It features Ricky Meléndez, Charlie Massó, Ray Reyes, Roy Rosselló, and new member Robi Rosa. Robi replaced Johnny Lozada after Johnny reached the group's age limit. The songs on this album are selections from their last four Spanish language albums translated into English, with the exception of Like A Cannonball. This song was recorded for the soundtrack to the Burt Reynolds film Cannonball Run II. Robby Rosa is the lead vocalist on six of the ten songs, being the only member fluent in the English language at the time.
