Surrender is a 1971 album by Diana Ross. It was her third solo LP for the Motown label. It reached #56 in the USA (#10 R&B) and sold over 200,000 copies.[1]

The album would be Ross' final studio album until the Touch Me in the Morning LP two years later. In the interim between the albums, Ross achieved Motown's goal of becoming a star thanks to her starring role in the 1972 Billie Holiday biopic Lady Sings the Blues.

Following the massive success of the #1 single "I'm Still Waiting" in the UK, Surrender was reissued under that title, and the hit single was added to the track listing. Another hit on the album was "Remember Me", which reached the top 20 in the US (where it sold over 500,000 copies) as well as the top ten in the UK. The album charted at #56 in America and #10 in the UK, earning a silver disc for UK sales in excess of 60,000 copies.[2]
