Superficial is the debut studio album by American television personality Heidi Montag, digitally released on January 11, 2010 by Warner Music Group. After being cast in the reality television series The Hills and subsequently achieving public notability, she entered the music industry and began recording the project in 2007. However, it suffered from several setbacks after recorded material intended for the project was leaked and proved unsuccessful. Montag enlisted collaborators Steve Morales, Chris Rojas, The Runners, Sebastian Jacome, Fingazz during its production.
Superficial received mixed to negative reviews from music critics. It debuted at number 41 on the U.S. Billboard Heatseekers Albums Chart with first-week sales of approximately 1,000 copies. Consequently, the record did not earn back the $2 million that Montag spent during its production; she later blamed its failure on inadequate promotional efforts. "Superficial" was released as the only single from the record on November 22, 2009; its accompanying music video was premiered in April 2010. Montag additionally performed her track "Body Language", which was initially planned for inclusion on Superficial, at the Miss Universe 2009 pageant on August 23, 2009.
