Sound Loaded is the sixth album by the Puerto Rican singer Ricky Martin, released by Columbia Records on November 14, 2000. The album has been credited with worldwide sales of over eight million copies and went Multi-Platinum in the United States and several other territories. This album is Martin's fourth marketed in the US, and is his second album in English. It includes the hit singles "She Bangs" and "Nobody Wants to Be Lonely".

When "Nobody Wants to Be Lonely" was released as the album's second single, it was turned into a duet between Martin and Christina Aguilera. During the single's release, the album was sold together with the single, as Aguilera does not feature on the album version of the song. Later shipments of the album featured the Aguilera duet in a slightly different track list.
