You is the twenty-third studio album by American singer Aretha Franklin, Released on October 16, 1975 by Atlantic Records. It was a critical and commercial disappointment, stalling at #83 on Billboard's album chart. The album's only pop chart single, "Mr. D.J." stalled at just #53 on Billboard's Hot 100, while climbing to only #13 R&B. The title track, issued as the follow-up, reached #15 R&B. The album brought an end to Aretha's long collaboration with producer Jerry Wexler, after signing with Atlantic in 1967. This album is long out-of-print.
