Sweet (スウィート?, Sūīto) is the debut studio album by Chara, which was released on November 11, 1991.[1] It debuted at #64 on the Japanese Oricon album charts, and charted in the top 200 for two weeks.[2] It eventually sold 11,000 copies, making it Chara's least sold album.

It was preceded by her debut single Heaven in September. The album also had two re-cut singles: the title track Sweet (released in January) and a remix single called No Toy (Re-Mix), featuring three alternative mixes of album tracks. None of these three songs charted in the Oricon top 100 singles.
