Norma Jean is the debut, and only, solo studio album by American R&B singer Norma Jean Wright, released on Bearsville Records in 1978. The album was produced by Bernard Edwards and Nile Rodgers of the band Chic, and was the project directly following the band's successful selftitled debut album Chic, which featured Wright on vocals.
Norma Jean includes the singles "Saturday", a US R&B Top 20 hit (#15) in July 1978, "Having A Party" and "Sorcerer", and was followed by non-album single "High Society" (R&B #19, January 1980), also produced by the Chic team.
Another track from the album, "I Like Love," was later sampled in Solitaire's 2004 single "I Like Love (I Love Love)." The album was reissued on CD with five bonus tracks by Sequel Records in 2000.
