''Diva'' is the first solo album by Scottish singer/songwriter Annie Lennox, released in 1992. The album entered the UK album chart at no.1 and has since sold over 1.2 million copies in the UK alone, being certified quadruple platinum. It was also a success in the U.S. where it was a top 30 hit and has been certified double platinum.

In 1993 the album was included in ''Q magazine''s list of the "50 Best Albums Of 1992". ''Rolling Stone'' magazine (6/25/92, p. 41) described the album as "''...state-of-the-art soul pop...''" and it is included in Rolling Stone's (5/13/99, p. 56) "Essential Recordings of the 90's" list. Several songs from the album were released as singles with "Why", "Walking on Broken Glass" and "Little Bird" being the most successful.

The song ''Keep Young and Beautiful'' was included on the CD release as a bonus track (the original vinyl album had only ten tracks). Another bonus track, "Step by Step", appeared on the Mexican and Japanese editions of the album and was also included as the B-Side on the single "Precious". The song was later recorded by Whitney Houston for the 1996 film soundtrack ''The Preacher's Wife'' and subsequently became a hit single.

The album won Best British Album at the 1993 Brit Awards. That same year, it was also nominated for the Grammy for Album of the Year. - Wikipedia
