Cruisin' is the third studio album by the American disco group Village People, released on September 25, 1978. Its title is a double entrendre: it may mean just driving around or gay cruising. This became obvious even for straight audiences in 1980, when William Friedkin's movie Cruising was released. Features the hits "Hot Cop" and "Y.M.C.A." which peaked at number two on the Billboard Hot 100.

The album was briefly rereleased in 2003 as YMCA in continental Europe.[3]
