Wake Up is the tenth and last album by American R&B group Shalamar, released in 1990 on the SOLAR label. It is the second Shalamar album to feature the line-up of Delisa Davis, Micki Free and Sydney Justin.

In an attempt to keep Shalamar relevant to a contemporary market, the album was heavily influenced by the then-dominant new jack swing style, but the end result was generally considered, at the least, disappointing. Wake Up failed to register on any chart in either the USA or the UK, neither did it produce a charting single in either country. It was Shalamar's least successful album and is usually looked upon as representing a somewhat unfortunate ending to the group's career.
