Reba is the thirteenth studio album by American country music singer Reba McEntire, released on April 18, 1988. The title signifies that she had become so well known that she could be identified by first name alone, but also signals an entirely different style to her music. Gone were the honky tonk stable steel guitars and fiddles of My Kind of Country and Have I Got a Deal for You, to be replaced by a highly produced and orchestrated Bakersfield-like sound. This did not diminish the album's sales, as it was her third #1 country album, and two of its tracks, I Know How He Feels and New Fool at an Old Game, reached #1 on the Billboard country singles charts. A remake of an old jazz vocal standard made famous by Ella Fitzgerald, Sunday Kind of Love, reached the #5 spot. Also covered was Respect, a song made famous by Aretha Franklin.
The album debuted at #20 for the week of May 21, 1988 on the Country Albums chart, and peaked at #1 for the week of June 11, 1988. The album stayed at #1 for 6 consecutive weeks.
