Love Somebody Today is a 1980 album by Sister Sledge. Like 1979's highly successful We Are Family, it was both written and produced by Nile Rodgers and Bernard Edwards of the band Chic and includes three due to the anti-disco backlash largely overlooked single releases: "Got to Love Somebody" (US Pop #64, R&B #6, December 1979), "Reach Your Peak" (Pop #101, R&B #21, March 1980) and "Let's Go on Vacation" (Pop -, R&B #63). The latter was to be included on the Chic-produced soundtrack album Soup For One in 1982.

Love Somebody Today was one of four albums to be written and produced by Edwards and Rodgers in 1980, the other three being Sheila and B. Devotion's King of the World including its hit single "Spacer", Chic's fourth studio album Real People and Diana Ross' multi-platinum selling diana which includes "Upside Down", "I'm Coming Out" and "My Old Piano".

Love Somebody Today, along with six other Sister Sledge albums, was digitally remastered and reissued on CD in 2007 by Wounded Bird Records.
