The Inner Beauty Movement is the second studio album of American R&B singer, Lina. The album was released on June 28, 2005 in US.

Background[edit]

In an interview given prior to the album's release, Lina explained its concept: "The inner beauty movement is your truth. (...) My plan is to get people to realize themselves, focus on who they are and love that person".[3]

Recording[edit]

Songs about finding someone who will never leave flow seamlessly into songs about taking control of a failed relationship and standing up for oneself. The overall theme of self-empowerment reinforces the album's title. The album's 18 tracks were chosen from nearly 40 songs, according to Hidden Beach founder and CEO Steve McKeever.[3]
