Love Somebody Today is the fourth studio album by the American R&B vocal group Sister Sledge, released on March 16, 1980 by Cotillion Records. The album includes three singles: "Got to Love Somebody", "Reach Your Peak", and "Let's Go on Vacation", which all charted on the US Pop and R&B/Soul charts from late 1979 until 1980.
Like their highly successful We Are Family released the previous year, this album was both written and produced by Nile Rodgers and Bernard Edwards of the band Chic. There were three singles released from this album. The first was "Got to Love Somebody" released in December 1979, which peaked at number sixty-four on the US Pop charts and number six on the R&B/Soul charts. In March 1980, the second single "Reach Your Peak" was released; peaking at #101 on the US Pop charts and #21 on the R&B/Soul charts. "Let's Go on Vacation", the last single released from this album failed to reach the US Pop chart but reached number sixty-three on the R&B/Soul chart. 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 Warner Bros. Records.
The album reached #31 in the US Billboard Hot 100 Album chart.
