''Reba'' is the fifteenth studio album, released in 1988 by Reba McEntire, the title signifying that she had become so well known that she could be identified by first name alone, but also signaling an entirely different style to her music. Gone were the 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 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. It has sold 1,400,000 copies world-wide.

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. - Wikipedia
