Donny Osmond is the tenth album released by Donny Osmond. It was released on Capitol Records on April 25, 1989 and was his first studio album since Donald Clark Osmond in 1977. It is notable for featuring the number 2 smash hit, "Soldier of Love", which Randall Popken, Alice Newsome and Lanell Gonzales called "a faintly suggestive tune set to a post-disco beat." It was released as a tune by a "mystery singer", as Osmond's promoter feared that no one would buy the album if the singer was revealed.
The album is also notable for featuring five songs that Osmond co-wrote, and for Osmond also handling drum programming and keyboards on several tracks. In addition to "Soldier of Love," it featured four other charting singles: "Sacred Emotion" (another big radio hit), "Hold On," "I'll Be Good to You," and "If It's Love That You Want." Another single, "I'm In It For Love," featured only as a bonus track on some copies of the compact disc, had become a minor UK hit prior to the success of "Soldier of Love."
