M.Y.O.B. (a.k.a. Mind Your Own Business) is the seventh original album by American singer Deborah Gibson. It was released March 2001 on her own Golden Egg record label.


"M.Y.O.B." was promoted as a single first.

Billboard's Dance single reviewer described follow-up single "What You Want" as "a cutting-edge moment, featuring the recognizable vocals of this old friend and soul-saturating production from never-failing maestro [remixer] Tony Moran" but acknowledged that DJs may have "lingering prejudices" against Gibson. The single received light airplay in Spring 2001 but did not chart.

"What You Want", released as the first single, was heavily promoted and has an accompanying music video; however, "What You Want" just missed charting on the Billboard Hot 100. "What You Want" did get some Rhythmic/dance format radio airplay, but airplay stalled and faded since the single came with no club mixes. This single includes "Comes Right Back" (Campfire Mix), which was not included on M.Y.O.B. "Your Secret" was released as a single with remixes by Mike Rizzo; the song did not chart on any major chart. Gibson's company, Golden Egg Records, coordinated a set of remixes of "Jaded" from remixer Musica Technica but failed to provide the remixer the vocal audio before Gold Egg Records shut down for a period of time starting in 2002.
