Who's Your Momma is the fifth studio album by Dutch pop rock singer Anouk. It was released on 23 November 2007 in the Netherlands and Belgium. It is her first studio album of new material since Hotel New York in December 2004. Who's Your Momma debuted at number one in the Netherlands, making it her fifth number one album and fourth debut at the top. The album contains the soul-influenced rock first single "Good God".
In May 2008, the single "Lost" from her previous studio album Hotel New York reached the number 2 position in Norway. Therefore, EMI decided to release the album in Norway in June 2008 and add "Lost" to the track listing. The video for "Modern World" was directed by Melina Matsoukas.

In May 2008, Dutch radio DJ Giel Beelen played an unofficial song from Anouk, "With You", on his radio show. He downloaded the song from a fansite of the singer. Anouk's record company EMI Music was not supportive and ordered Beelen to stop playing it. The song was used as a potential first single in Canada a few years ago, but was never released physically. Beelen didn't listen and played the song again. And with success: in September 2008 the song was released as a double a-side with the fourth and final single from the album, "If I Go".
