Surrender is Diana Ross' third solo album. The album was released on July 6, 1971 by Motown Records.

Album BackgroundEdit

Diana's previous album "Everything Is Everything" failed to generate interest due to Motown's rush and hurried efforts to further her solo career and did not chart as highly as expected.

The album was a commercial and critical success. It would be Diana's final studio album until the "Touch Me in the Morning" album two years later.

In the interim between the albums, she achieved Motown's goal of becoming a star thanks to her starring role in the 1972 Billie Holiday biopic "Lady Sings the Blues."
