Queen of Soul is the sixth studio album by American Blues artist, Etta James. The album was released on Argo Records in 1964, featuring the singles James had released during the year. It was arranged by Riley Hampton, Bert Keyes, Cliff Parman, Al Pokonka and Phil Wright.

Two songs on the album: "Baby What You Want Me to Do" and "Loving You More Every Day" charted on the Rhythm and Blues and Billboard Pop Chart. It was James's first studio album in two years since the release of Etta James Top Ten. Like her previous releases, Queen of Soul was released on a 12-inch LP album, and has not been reissued since. It consisted of ten tracks, with five on each side of the LP.
