Ross is the fourteenth studio album by American singer Diana Ross, released on June 9, 1983 by RCA Records. It was Ross' third of six albums released by the label during the decade. It was released shortly before Ross gave a pair of free concerts in New York's Central Park. The album reached #32 on the US charts, #14 on the US R&B charts and #44 in the UK. The album's highest international chart position was in Sweden, where it reached #7.
Five of the eight tracks were produced by Gary Katz, two by Ray Parker Jr and one by Ross. The album's first single, "Pieces of Ice", peaked at #31 on the US charts. Subsequent singles "Up Front" (US R&B #60, UK #79) and "Let's Go Up" (US #77) - also recorded by Helen Reddy the same year - were also minor hits. "Up Front" was remixed by Jolley & Swainfor its European release.
The album cut "You Do It" had previously been recorded by Sheena Easton and subsequently Rita Coolidge and Deborah Allen. The album's final US sales were slightly higher than 250,000 copies.
