Billie Holiday Sings (MGC-118) is a 10 inch LP album made by jazz singer Billie Holiday, released in the United States by Clef Records in 1952.[3] It was her first album for the label, and her first album of original material, following several compilations of previously released 78rpm sides for Columbia, Commodore, and Decca.

In 1956, when the 10inch format was phased out, the album was reissued by Clef Records as Solitude (MG C-690),[4] with four extra tracks recorded at a second session sometime in April 1952 (exact date unknown), with the same musicians.[5] The final track, "Tenderly", had been previously released on her second 10"LP, An Evening with Billie Holiday (MG C-144). The other three new songs had been previously released on her third 10"LP, simply titled Billie Holiday (MG C-161).
