Spellbound is the second album by American pop singer Paula Abdul, and was released in May 1991. The album contained U (containing writing and musical input by Prince).

The album was not as successful as her 1988 debut, Forever Your Girl, but sold 3 million copies worldwide, and spawned five singles, Rush Rush, The Promise Of A New Day, Blowing Kisses In The Wind, Vibeology and Will You Marry Me?.

Prince's contribution, U, was first recorded in 1979, but the version submitted to Paula Abdul was a re-recording from October 1987, with lead vocal overdubs by Abdul recorded at some point between 1988 and 1990.

The album reached number 1 on the US Billboard 200 Chart, and number 31 on the Billboard R&B Chart.
