Thalía is the eighth studio album by Mexican recording artist Thalía, released on July 8, 2003 by Virgin Records and EMI Latin. It is her first English-language album, and shares a title with Thalía's 1990 and 2002 Spanish-language albums.[4]

Four singles were released from the album. In the United States, "I Want You" was the album's most popular song, peaking at number 22 on the Billboard Hot 100 and number seven in the Mainstream chart. It is her only song to date that has charted within the Billboard Hot 100. In Greece, the song peaked number twenty-six in Top 50 singles sales.[citation needed] The Spanish version of the song, "Me Pones Sexy" was released for the Spanish-languaged audience and also perform quite well on the Latin Charts, peaking within the top ten of the Hot Latin Tracks at number nine.[5] "Baby I'm in Love" was the second single, but performed poorly; the Spanish version "Alguien Real" did not appear on any of the Latin Charts. "Don't Look Back" was released as a remix single and did well on Billboard Dance Charts. The fourth single "Cerca de Ti" peaked at number one on the Hot Latin Tracks. "Closer to You", the English version of the song, was eventually cancelled, however it peaked at #4 on Billboard Bubbling Under Hot 100 Singles.[6]

The Japanese release, retitled "I Want You", was certified Gold by the Recording Industry Association of Japan.[7] In Mexico the album was certified Gold in November 17, 2003.[8] The album had modest success in the United States, selling 196,000 copies, according to Nielsen SoundScan.[9]
