Two is the second album by American soul/disco group GQ, released in 1980 on the Arista label. It peaked at #9 on the R&B chart and #46 on the pop listing. Unlike its predecessor Disco Nights, no single from this album crossed over to the Billboard Hot 100, but "Sitting in the Park" and "Standing Ovation" reached #9 and #12 respectively on the R&B chart. The former was, like "I Do Love You" from Disco Nights, a cover of a 1965 Billy Stewart recording.
